We had a good time in Clovis this weekend kicking off the Christmas season with a fall craft show at Old Town Flea Market. Don’s lamps were a hit as they are repurposed and one of a kind. I will be listing some of them in the etsy shop soon. The last time we participated in this craft show it was 108 degrees. This weekend was so much better. The sponsors do a good job of keeping us vendors happy with free wifi and many yummy foods available. I had a mushroom & artichoke tamale that was really good. Clovis has many antique,  vintage,  and industrial items in their downtown shops. The next time you’re in Clovis check them out.

Don made this lamp from an old bottle capper.

This tool box is a great size for a succulent garden.

This lamp sold as well as the bottle capper. But there other random items out there just waiting to be made into a lamp.

My friend is pretty handy in the garden and came up with an attractive pair of planters for her front porch. She knew she wanted to use a wine barrel for a rustic look. She made sure to attach the wooden slats to the metal bands and to each other with glue so that it didn’t fall apart when she cut the barrel in half. She created a short planter in the top third of the half barrels and fastened each half to the walls on either side of her front door.

She had been planning this for her entry and thought about the details. Each planter has an electrical outlet which operates the self-timed drip system.

They are a nice addition to a beautiful entry.

This is a fun container that can be used in many ways. My husband, Don, made this from reclaimed wood. He also painted the front with chalkboard paint and framed it. I like the way it turned out and we find that it’s always a fun creative process to make something new out of something old.
