Getting Caught Up!

We are in full-steam-ahead-mode getting ready for the Alameda Point Antiques Faire -- the largest antiques flea market in Northern California -- this Sunday!

Here's a small peek at our studio space which is an outbuilding in our shared backyard.  (We are neighbors in a duplex.)  We're doing our best to get it organized so that we can be productive in our limited free time as stay-at-home moms.  Pegboard has gone up along one wall of the main room.  On the opposite wall, we plan to paint and rip up the carpet to make a photo studio space.

Currently, we have to drag our latest projects out into the yard or into one of our apartments for a photo shoot.  It's not much fun and because of it, we have missed taking a lot of photos of things which have since sold.  We have iphone pics, like the one above, but no quality photos.  Sad :(

Still, here are some photos of things that sold before we were able to take pictures with the good camera:
Clockwise from left:  suitcase table created from vintage suitcase and vintage furniture legs, linen pillow cover and squirrel pillows made of vintage fabric, vintage oil painting on canvas that we cleaned and re-stretched, striped whale pillow.

Clockwise from top left:  screen display for our vintage flash cards which sold before we sold a single flashcard!, napkins made from vintage tablecloth, bushel basket on stand, animal silhouettes in thrifted frames.

We also just finished a custom job for one our clients:

 This mission rocker is the real deal, but had been sitting on a front porch for eons until an acquaintance gave it to us.  Our client spotted it in our studio and asked that we paint it olive.  We refurbished the spring cushion before reupholstering it in an outdoor fabric.  Our client wanted quiet colors for her front porch, which is where we hope the rocker will sit for another eon at least!

Now for the better photos.   Here's a sneak peek of our latest projects which we plan to take to the antiques faire this weekend:

HUGE painted mirror--SOLD at Alameda Antiques Market
More animal silhouette art -- this one made from an reclaimed cabinet door.
SOLD at Alameda Antiques Market.

horse pillow--SOLD at Alameda Antiques Market. More coming soon...
vintage faux bamboo brass serving tray
We also have a huge selection of succulent gardens in these sculptural white bowls
This is just the tip of the iceberg -- they're simply the photos we managed to take today.   Still need to get a ton of photos of some of our bigger pieces of furniture before we sell those this weekend.

Quite an eclectic mix, don't you think?
