I have been trying to talk my friend, Carla, into bringing her wares to my open houses for quite a while! I don't think you will be disappointed in the least that she has FINALLY accepted!
Carla of Zsa Zsa envisions herself as a part-time, glue-gun-slinging, crafting superhero. Seeking abandoned tablecloths, drapery, and other doo-dads, Carla saves them from a grim fate. With a Zsa Zsa make-over these castaways become beloved objects once again. A drapery becomes a chic “ripped wreath,” a cloth napkin finds panache as a corkboard, vintage patterns become mod trays… Not only are objects recued and restored, but reused! Ergo; Zsa Zsa is saving the planet with her green savvy ways. At the sale, Carla will have: Zsa Zsa Gaboards, wreaths, crafts made from vintage pattern pictures, jewelry boxes, coasters and glamorous glitter skeletons.
An added bonus to getting Carla to commit, we get her momma, too! I love that this becomes a family affair (my momma is the creator at Caroline Designs and my mother-in-love, Dede is the woman behind all of my beautiful stained glass and winter hats :). Without further ado, I bring you Jean Zirk of Z Creative!
Some children are born with a silver spoon; Jean was born holding a needle and thread. The offspring of a potter and home economics teacher, creativity was destined to be in Jean’s genes! As a young mother of four children in the 1970’s, Jean made all her own and her children’s clothing. She even sewed uniforms for Berkley’s cheerleading squad in 1970. These days Jean is enjoying her retirement, her grandchildren and her love for sewing and crafting. At the sale, Jean will have aprons, cards and fall floral arrangements.
This is shaping up to be the best N's Whims' open house yet! See you this Sunday, 2-5pm!
