For the past two days we gathered as we do every year for an annual Holiday House in a small town in upstate New York to share a year's worth of handpainting, jewelry, sewing, knitting, and more...
This year my sister hosted the event in her 1809 farmhouse.
My mother and sister paint, glitterify, sew, repurpose and beautify. My aunt knits and knits and knits. My brother's mom-in-law paints and paints and I repurpose whatever I can find into wearable art.
Here's a peek inside~come see how I spent my weekend...
Perhaps next year, you will join us?
