Red Shed Originals ** Creating Collectables

Our mascot, Red Sparkles, is already Celebrating Summer! He wanted to show off just a few of the new treasures that have come into the Red Shed in the last few days and will be available for sale at our Saturday Spectacular Sale on June 28th.
These precious baubles are made from giant french antique crystal chandelier pendant drops that we found at Marche aux Puces, The Paris Flea Market. We have fused antique documents and prints (also from Paris) to the crystals to make fun, one of a kind show stoppers. These are not made as necklaces (they would be too heavy and range from 5 to 7 inches long), rather they are made to dress up your boudoir, lampshade, mirror, or perhaps to use as a wonderful fan pull. We only have four!

Red loves these adorable Altered Art Masterpieces gracing the Red Shed! Michele Jones has been hard at work turning vintage bottles, decanters, even salt shakers into gorgeous trophies to dress any table or mantle. She has used her vast collection of vintage jewelry, religious icons, and precious antique finery to create beautiful pieces that will make your jaw drop! Each one is a unique jewel!

One more fabulous item that is not on the web site. Well, actually, there are two angels below. Our friend Margo (aka, our good and talented friend, Robolady) dropped by for a visit, and we asked her to stand by this wonderful angel so that everyone could see how large it is.

This is a piece just takes your breath away! Wouldn't it look great in your garden?
Hope to see you all at the sale on Saturday. We have lots of new and wonderful items that are NOT on the website, so you will have to come and visit us! Remember we are closed until Saturday as we get ready to help you

Celebrate Summer at the Red Shed!

Anatomy of an Antique Window Sign

Here's a small project that I have been getting ready for the June 28th sale.
I had this great old cabinet front. Perfect wavy glass. Beautiful molding.

I painted the outside black, but left the molding natural. I then printed out the words I wanted to add, measured and attached them backwards, so that I could paint on the reverse side.

Results! For all those (like us) wishing they were in Paris!

See you all on June 28th!
