Halloween is almost here!

I will be at A Cottage Boutique show tomorrow from 9am to 2pm. Come and see this guy and more new pieces at the show!

There is one day left in the benefit auction for little Ava Grace. Please take a peek at all of the wonderful offerings and bid generously to help out the family cover Ava's rising medical expenses. Thank you to those that have already placed bids! The auction ends tomorrow evening at 6pm Pacific time.

I promised more pictures from the State Fair, and I will post again soon with those, and pictures from my family's trip to Disneyland last week. We had a magical time!

Art from the California State Fair

It's hard for me to pick what my favorite thing to eat at the State Fair is, but it's not hard for me to pick what my favorite thing to do at the State Fair is....look at all of the art exhibits! I enjoy this every year, as there is always something new and interesting to see. There are three main buildings of art exhibits, and a couple of others that are dedicated to architecture, food, and animals. Here are some wonderful works of art that caught my eye while going through the young artist's building.....all of these works were created by children & young adults, and they are amazing! This building of art is my favorite of all....the talent that these young artists have is incredible. I encourage you all to visit your local County and State Fair, and see the wonderful art that will be on display will be in for a treat!

New Collage Charm Necklaces!

I have several new collage charm necklaces available now for purchase. They are shown here below.....In the first picture, the two gals in costume on the far left, have had glass glitter accents added to the collage....
These are all original mini collages, not copies, and each contains layered images on papers that have been inked, placed between glass, and soldered using 100% lead free solder! They have been given a black patina finish for a wonderful antique look, and come with your choice of a black patina 24" ball chain or a black sheer ribbon. Either can easily be trimmed to suit your desired length. The square pendants measure 1.5" by 1.5" and the long pendants are 1" by 3". The backs are finished with a coordinating paper and have been signed and dated Sylvia Anderson 2007. Each charm pendant is $26 which includes first class shipping to anywhere in the continental US. Please email me for international shipping rates. If you would like to see additional close up pictures, or have any questions, please feel free to drop me a line at

In addition to those pictured above, I have some charm pendants and two new baby shoe pin keeps available this month on The Primitive Gathering site. This is my first month on this site, and it is an amazing group of artists that do wonderful work, so please be sure to have a look around! Below are my offerings on The Primitive Gathering.....I am accepting a limited number of special orders for initial pendants, as represented by the letter "S" pendant pictured above. If you are interested in one, please email me for more information.

I will be back soon with pictures from the California State fair that we are headed to on Sunday! I wish you all a happy Labor Day weekend!
