Introducing "Breezy" my first Hippie Whatever Purse

Well, it took a while but I finally was able to finish the 'bits and pieces' that I showed you in a previous post. (see the images below).   Here is my first hippie Whatever Purse "Breezy".  Breezy is a sweet girl made from 'whatever' I could find that I thought would give her that cool, groovy look from the 1960's hippie days.  She has VERY shaggy hair, a cool headband and she is sporting some fine looking glasses and earrings!  Not to mention her totally awesome coin belt. 

Breezy is large enough to hold your phone, id, coin purse and lipstick!!  She's a child of the '60's and ready to groove with you!

                                                   Breezy LOVES her groovy headband!!

                                              'Chink, chink, chink' goes Breezy's belt!

                                                      Looking fine even from the back!

                                                                     Total picture!!!

Will probably put her in my etsy shop  this weekend.
Starting work on the next one soon--pictures to follow!!

Lake Houston Trade Days tomorrow!!

And here we go again!! Tomorrow is one of my local shows, the Lake Houston Trade Days. It is a great show that is just 5-minutes down the street from where I live--awesome, right?!? The gentleman who hosts it does a pretty decent job AND it's one of the shows I use to coordinate with the city, however the city no longer hosts it, sooooooooo--I am just a vendor! I must say, I really like that. Coordinating and running a trade show is NOT easy and can be very trying--after all, you know how we vendors are!! (hehehe). I will be setting up tonight till 'dark-30' as we use to say since I had to work today, but I've pretty well got it down and should be able to get it done quickly. Well, that is, after I visit with my fellow vendors and we all look at each others 'treasures' then visit a little more----ok, so I'm going to be there late! But that's ok, I love my fellow vendors and look forward to see them at each show. If you find yourself in the Humble, TX area tomorrow, come and visit me at the Lake Houston Trade Days at 8133 Will Clayton Pkwy, Humble, TX 77338. I'll be the one with all the cool treasures for sale!! ;)

Not my booth contents but just a sample of some of the good stuff you might find!!

Winnie Trade Show this weekend & 'Whatever Purses' on Facebook

     This weekend is my Winnie Trade Show--come by if you're in the neighborhood! Winnie, Texas on I-10. We are in the little green house by the food court! The last few shows have not been good. Bad weather as well as freezing cold caused very low attendance. This weekend is somewhat 'ify' on the weather issue, but we have high hopes for a better show. Say a prayer!!
      I recently downloaded "Picasa" to my computer. It's a photoshop-type of program and I'm really enjoying playing with it. And the best part's FREE! Check it out if you get a chance.
     Here are the pictures I put on my facebook page "Remade Life Emporium".

     Cool, right?!?   PLEASE be sure to go to my facebook page - Remade Life Emporium  - and
'like' us!!  It sure would give me a boost!

     Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you at Winnie,
God Bless all and any who read this,

Humble Beginnings of a 'Whatever Purse'

     Just a quick post to show the humble beginnings of my Whatever Purses.   They really are so much fun to make---the sky is the limit on how and what to put on them.  And I've got LOTS of odds and ends to 'bling' them up!!

Start with some really cool fabric

Next, add lots and lots of nifty trims

Finally, pick 'whatever' to add to the purse

     The completed purse will be posted soon in my etsy shop:

More to come!!  God Bless all and any who read this,

My Wonderful Mom

      It's been a while since I've posted pictures of my wonderful mom.  I took a day off work this past Friday and went to spend some time with her at the nursing home.  She was in a fine mood!!  It was 'Go Texan" day (for those who don't live in Texas, we have a 'Go Texan' day during rodeo season and everyone dresses up in their best western attire!)  and the residences were dressed in cute cowboy hats and bandannas.  Mom was soooooo cute in her green cowgirl hat and bandanna so I caught her with my phone camera and thought I would share the pictures with you.  She is doing very well right now, although she is still wheelchair bound and has been since she broke her leg again this past October.  She has had so many problems/issues over the past 5yrs.--numerous surgeries, 2- broken legs, breast cancer and so much more.  She is my hero and I love her very much.

     I have, of course, included pictures of my little 'pooterman'!!  He will be 2-yrs old this Wednesday and I must say I love every minute of every day since he came into my life--yes, even the smelly diapers and the temper tantrums (well, maybe NOT the smelly diapers so much!).  He is the love of my life and I thank God without ceasing for making me his 'Gigi'.

     God is good and has blessed me so much and so many good things are coming--I'll share with you as things happen!!

 God Bless all and any who read this!
