artsyville earlier today I noticed how much the sun has shifted over the past few weeks -- the dining room nook used to brighten up in the morning, but now it fills with light in the early afternoon through the side window. I can't remember if I have shared the story of this trunk, but I rescued it from a trash dumpster a few years ago. It was a travel trunk from the 30s. How it ended up where it did is the mystery of the century; I can only guess. However, there were just enough pieces of the former owner's life rattling around in there that I was able to find out who he was & and to piece together his life story. 2h
  •   larrypostcomau so beautifully restored! love that you took the time to investigate, means all the more! 2h
  •   packerdi I have my family's trunk. It's in the basement and I don't know what to do with it. The top is bowed up and not flat so makes it hard to decide what to do with. It was my great great grandfathers....not sure how many greats it goes back! Lol I so want to have it out though. This looks so wonderful! 2h
  •   evamarie_taylor Oh wow! So cool! 2h
  •   poppyblue01 Wow that lovely. 1h
  •   beckybowencraig Love this! 1h
  •   hipkatdesign I have a trunk just like it! Mine was a trunk my grandparents used to send things to my uncle in India when he was in the Peace Corp in the early 60's! It has the address written in white paint on the top... :-) 1h

artsyville The Artsyville shop is officially closed for the Thanksgiving weekend! I decided to slow down, eat lots, loaf around with my family, and enjoy my crafty time! :) The shop will reopen bright & early on Monday, December 1, with lots of new goodies and colorful holiday doodle deals all week long. For now though... time for a glass of wine & the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special! 2d

artsyville had a terrific time this morning with @gwynethleech and her illustrated cups! I've been a fan of her caffeinated work ever since I saw her show in the prow of the Flatiron Building a few years ago. We met at her current exhibit at Marymount College & then went out for (what else?!) coffee. 3d

artsyville oh what a day! I packed orders in one room, painted ornaments (yule spools?) in the other, made lemon bars without burning them, went outside just long enough to make it look like I was being helpful in raking the leaves, and best of all, I found out that my beautiful niece was just born! 6d

artsyville the last survivor from my #justleafingaround escapade... I varnished and mod podged the previous bunch, but they all crumbled anyway and this one won't last much longer. total middle finger from Mother Nature & a reminder that part of her beauty is her ephemerality. 7d
