Some Steampunk Style

We've been healing, playing and vacationing for much of this month- but this week we pleasantly surprised ourselves and made a few new pieces for AOC and took them over tonight just before closing

Earlier this month I was able to take a few days and travel to one of my favorite places- Mexico City
18th Century Church in Mexico City with Amazing Frescoes, Mosaics, Paintings, Architecture and Stained glass
I only had one shopping day for the Flea Market but it was fun. As always I found tons of things I either couldn't afford or cram into my suitcase but just getting to look is always an adventure. I managed to make just a few purchases and my favorite find:
 an Agapito Labios Painting from the mid 20th century
 I love the subject and my girls and I had this same view of the Warrior & Princess Volcanoes from our home outside of Mexico City a few years ago- so this painting was an especially sweet find.

A Special Thanks to Anisa & Eldon of Antiques on Cedros for staying open a little later tonight for us to rework our booth- we just love it there and the store has an amazing vibe and even more amazing merchandise and vendors!
We are taking a short road trip tomorrow up to Oceanside, Ca to check out Lucky Street Productions Flea Market. They have such a great concept in that they rent out wonderful vintage props for any occasion along with hosting a monthly flea market with various vendors. From their posts on Facebook and the web they have some very cool pieces so we're excited to go!
Next up for us, a whole new theme in our booth for March and April.
Online selling is somewhere on the horizon, although we've been saying that forever,
someday we'll mean it!
