Little Girls

At Joyworks we have been busy making a few changes.
We expanded our women's clothing boutique,moved our baby section and...

We've added a new little girl section...sizes 4-14.
It's a sweet collection including a few accessories.

I recruited this adorable little girl to model a cute new pink ruffle dress.

I hope you love it as much as we do...

A Good Crow...

I found this large painting of a crow at a thrift store years ago...
It comes out every Fall at Joyworks to welcome the upcoming season.
(-true to Joywork Style...we did embellish it a little...)

Picker Sister

I've been watching this fun new show on Lifetime called Picker Sisters.
Two girls travel around picking up junk and having it made into cool furniture.
I always find good junk and have great ideas but I'm just not handy with power tools.
The other day it came to me that my brother is quite skilled at building things...we would make a great team...I could be the Picker Sister.

Well this is one of our attempts...I found this vintage bed frame and thought it would make the best bench. My brother came over and I told him my idea and waited for the magic to happen.
All I can say is that it wasn't like on television... Nothing fit,the wood split,it's not level,I cut my foot,it's a little high,has too many legs,and it's not very sturdy...

But it's finished and I think it turned out pretty cute...
We probably won't make another bench but I'm sure I'll think of something else.
Because I am the Picker Sister!

Craft Day...

On this rainy Sunday I finally felt like hanging out inside and crafting.
Joyworks is having a booth at the Ruffles and Rust Show in October so I thought it would be fun to make some necklace pendants out of vintage bits and baubles.

Garden Girl

During the photo shoot I was always trying to create a character for the models that fit the outfit and props. We decided that this look was a girl from England tending her garden...
Green Coat ...$100.00
Brown Boots...$ 65.99
Fedora ...$ 22.99

Over the years I have collected many garden related antiques. It was fun to pull out one of my favorite watering cans to use as a prop.
