I fell in love in...

Soooooo in love, with a little town called Wellfleet this summer. Mainly because I got a really great job at The Frying Pan Gallery across from the town pier at Wellfleet Harbor. It's an amazing building filled with amazing art. The building is an old Oyster shack. It was made from wood that was floated over, and some that washed over, from Billingsgate Island when the sea took the community out there. You gotta come down and see it in person this summer.
Neat Squid wall sconces below.
There are beautiful views & the yummiest things to eat in every direction you can see!

Above is my dog Bella just chilling at the gallery with me. Below, more metal fish by Steve Swain.

Above, the beautiful gardens outside the gallery planted and maintained by the multi-talented Sarah Swain.
Above are some prints by Hannah Hillard-Bouvier, I just love her mermaids. Below are a group of paintings by Jen Morgan.

Below are my vintage chenille soft sculpture cupcakes. Next season my jewelry will be sold at the gallery as well.

Above and below are the steel sculptures of Steve Swain

had to add this one of the chefs of Sol having a little fun at work.

Vintage Image & Polkadot Ribbon Brooches...Well, Almost

Such cuteness! These are buttons I have covered with vintage postcard and vintage valentine images. They measure 1 7/8 inch. I will be making some gathered ribbon rosette type thingys to mount the buttons to add a little frillyness. I'm still figuring out which type of pin finding I want to use. There are so many types out there nowadays.
I really love these vintage valentine images. Iron-on printer paper is a great thing.

I was super thrilled to find all these colors of polka dot ribbon on sale at the fabric store. Just wish there was an off white with white dots.

Well, I will be working on these over the next few days and will show you some when I get a few finished. Can't wait to see them myself. New projects are always so exciting.
More soon...XOXO Emily

It's been a long freakin' while since I put any time in to my blog. Shame on me. Well, I have been working on lots of new goodies for the 2010 shows. Here are a few pics.
Tulip cascade necklace above and poppy hairpins below. Just a peek!

Well that's all I'm giving up for now. Working on my show applications and schedule and I will post some of that soon. The May Brimfield show is right around the corner!!

The hair poppies are available at Salon 2000 in Harwich, Ma. Just over the Harwich line on route 28. Pop in and say hi to Jen and Jeneanne. Jen cuts my hair and does a super fab job with the color as well.

Wellfleet Oyster Fest Emily's craft show pics

Wellfleet Oyster Fest 2009 was a freezing fun-fest. Busy, good company, great food, nice folks, great music and lots of familiar faces came by the booth. Some of my favorite artisans set up at this show and there have been quality new vendors every year I have set up there.
Samantha, my childhood friend makes beautiful jewelry and had a lovely little nook in my set-up. It was such a busy show , nearly impossible to get out and get many pictures. Samantha's jewelry can be found on Etsy at

Looking forward to some upcoming shows after a real stinker last Sunday. Samantha and I will be doing an artisans home show sale at her parent's lovely marsh side house in Harwich. Local? email for details!

More soon...XOXO Emily

Fall shows and new handmade goodies

I am ready to settle in to fall. My favorite shows happen at this time of year. Brimfield was a pretty soggy and chilly show this September but still fun. didn't get many pics but here are a few...

Above, insert crowd here.

Below some vintage crafty stuff and the Czech glass buttons which I import

Above, my trusty rubber rain boots which kept my feet warm and dry while the rest of me froze. Below, the Maker's Mark which we all drank out of silly frilly little porcelain creamers. No one ever seems to have real cups at shows. Just part of the charm of Friday Night Dinner Club activities. I was feeling warm after a few sips of Bourbon...

I am working on a list of my October and November shows and will post it in a few days. I am still looking for some New England November and December Artisan/craft shows. Any suggestions?
