Weird And Wonderful : Trashion

I did a post entitled Weird and Wonderful last May.

Happened to be wondering around Flicker (random picture site) one day since and

stumbled on the page of a woman who calls herself urban woods walker.

And Weird and Wonderful is happening again.
Apparently there was a Trashion Show somewhere in Indiana where this woman’s work was shown.

Wow. Upcycling and fashion never saw this stuff coming.

 More costumes to come this week.  Can’t wait? You’ll have to.

Are you inspired to upcycle for Halloween? I am.

Open House at Bally Eden

In the Spring and the Fall, I loved to have an open house at the shop. I’d make food and offer 10 – 50 % off stuff. But my favorite part was creating the invitations. I would look for just the right image and then cajole someone into making it for me (remember I’m not the computer working graphic artist).spring open house invite 001

I loved these little pieces of art that you could hang on the refrigerator.

I wanted them too pretty to throw away.

And because of my pack rat tendencies, I have three here to show you.

Again, if you were a customer, I thank you deeply for your loyalty.

It cheers me to hear your praises.

Stay tuned for the last week of 31 days Pretty Pictures.

Catch up and start on the first day of October.

I guarantee you’ll know too much about me by the end of the month.

Bally Eden’s TV Commercial

 And finally I bring you the television commercial for Bally Eden.

A 30 second spot I paid big bucks to have produced and shown on local cable.

I think HGTV was one of the stations I chose to run it on.

This was a risk for me because there was no money.

And sadly, it really didn’t drive traffic my way either.

That was me behind the counter, yes.

And a lovely lady who worked for me named Cindy was the customer.

 I’m also the magical force that opens the door in the beginning. I laid on the floor in the entry hall.

When people told me they kept meaning to stop in,

I used to say, “Brake’s on the left”.

So if you never did stop by, here’s your chance to see what you missed.

One last piece from the Bally Eden puzzle tomorrow and then Halloween week begins.
