Wonderful Autumn Days...

I have been enjoying the season and the cooler, rainy weather. Did I mention I love rainy days? They put me in a creative mood but for the last few months I have been trying to heal a bad right arm which makes creating difficult.

I did this cloth, handpainted Thanksgiving Lady sitting in a rusty can for our dining table back in the year 2000 when I was having fun painting and doing Ebay. She is again gracing our table this year and she brings back sweet memories of the good old days. I can already smell the turkey roasting and pies baking in the oven! I know it's early, but...HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

A listing on Ebay

Gone are the glory days of Ebay, but I have recently found myself returning there to list in hopes of reviving those fun and exciting times.

I am in the process of downsizing and I currently have a listing for my Paris Cage Doll.  She is one of a kind and from my private collection.  You will find her listed HERE ON EBAY.  Thank you for your interest.

New *Instant Download* EPattern Release

I am still redecorating and reorganizing my Studio/Nest. It was like Christmas when I found several boxes of my sketches and patterns from a few years ago. Here is my latest pattern from unfinished work in 2008...can you tell I'm running a wee bit behind?

This instant download epattern was inspired by a vintage postcard.
Available in my Etsy Shop - THE SMIDGEN SHOP

Hoosier Cabinet Redo

I have been busy redoing my old Hoosier cabinet. I have had this cabinet for over twenty eight years and it was old, old when I bought it.  It has been many colors.  I painted it black about three years ago but now I'm going back to white.  I love the way it turned out with white paint and new brushed nickel with porcelain insert handles.  On to the next project...
