Having a retail shop has allowed me to meet so many interesting and creative people. One such visitor is an extremely talented photographer. Laura Heerema has made a name for herself doing portraits for many families in Thunder Bay. She was kind enough to do some photos of my work for me, and they couldn't have turned out better. I am thrilled with them. I thought I would share a bunch of them so you can see what I have been working on for the One of A Kind show in Toronto.

--------Be sure to visit Laura's photography page on facebook to see more of her beautiful work. Laura has also created a perpetual calendar full of great photos she has taken in the region. Of course we have the calendars for sale at Vintage Pixie Studio and they are only $20.00. What a great gift idea------------

The Pixie Pickers have returned from our travels with loads of wonderful vintage goodies. Great times were had, while we hunted and scavenged flea markets and vintage shops. It is always exciting to look for the perfect items to bring home and see where the trends are heading in vintage décor. It can be almost overwhelming. Here is just a sampling of what was at one of the flea markets we visited.

Of course there is always downtime. We had to take advantage of the famous "Bloody Mary's" at one flea market. They come with  almost a full meal and a beer chaser. What better way to regroup and energize for the next bit of junking...

Come by the studio to see all the great finds we brought home, and also find some unique fall and Halloween décor.
