Shows this Weekend, Customer Pieces and Styling

Here are two shows I am doing this weekend. I think Briarwood also has their show on Thursday on Friday of this week. Shopping Christmas markets is a great way to find some unique Christmas gifts!

Friday, November 4 - Vestavia United Methodist Church Magical Marketplace
9:00 - 4:00

Saturday, November 5 - Pantherette Holidayz - Helena Rec Center
8:30 - 1:00 (this one also will be on Friday, Nov. 4 starting at noon!)

Here are some pieces I recently finished for Beth:

Styling - On The Nate Berkus show this morning, Nate was talking about "styling", like when a magazine does a photo shoot in someone's home and "styles" a room for the photo. He was showing a styled kitchen adding decorated touches so it is more than just utilitarian. He had added woven chargers and a woven basket on the kitchen island, family photos, a woven shade added behind panels. He also said to "shop your house" so go around other rooms in your house and find pieces that you might could put in another room for a whole new look!
