Field Trip: Tottenham Hotspur Camp

Hi!  Welcome to Day 2 of my posts about our trip to the UK. Today I’m going to show you the beautiful campus of Haileybury College in Hertford Heath, England where our son, Trevor, went to soccer (or football if you’re from anywhere outside the US) camp hosted by the Tottenham Hotspur organization.

We rode the train from Stratford, London up to Hertford Heath and had a cab drive us from the train station to the college. This is the incredible view that greeted us.  Just look at that beautiful patina on the chapel dome!

Scarlet Calliope Tottenham Camp 3

There is a gorgeous tree-lined lane leading up to the main entrance of the school. I just loved walking around this campus, it has such a sense of history and purpose. There’s really no buildings in my area of California that have such wonderful age and architecture like this. I’m sure the other parents dropping off their sons thought I was mad for taking so many pictures of the buildings but I just had to take in and capture the experience.

Once you’ve gone through the archway there’s more amazing architecture at this college that was founded in 1806 by the East India Company. Here’s my favorite son, Trevor.

Can you believe how beautiful the campus of Haileybury College is?  This pic was taken with my iPhone, wow!

 

Scarlet Calliope Tottenham Camp 9

The dining hall reminded us of something you might see in Harry Potter. We kept looking for the sorting hat!

Incredible statuary was plentiful around the school.

This sweet angel was waiting right outside the dining hall.

Here’s the boys, in their Tottenham Hotspur track suits, on the last day of camp. The boys were grouped in their dorms with younger ones sharing halls (but not rooms) with the older boys so Trevor ended up with about 10 “little brothers”. When Trevor was called up to receive his certificate and his medal, the boys from his group chanted his name. It was so darn cute!

Thank you for stopping by to see my pics. Come back tomorrow to see our trip around Cambridge.

Field Trip: Portobello Road Market

Hello Friends!

I’ve been neglecting my blog and I’m so sorry but we took a trip to London and I’m finally just getting caught up with High School Registration for my son, taking our oldest cat to the vet for a potty problem and don’t even get me started about the mail!

Anyways, I’m finally going through my pictures, all 827 of them, and trying to figure out the best way to share them. So let’s start off with the Portobello Market in Notting Hill. We went on a Saturday morning specifically looking for antiques. Let me tell you that there was a lot of looking and not very much buying from me, because the exchange rate between the British Pound and the US dollar is not very good!  I did, however, find a couple things that just had to go home with me.

The instructions to find this market were to get off the Underground train at Notting Hill Gate and follow all the people. Um. Yeah. There were hundreds of people all going in different directions at the station so that really wasn’t helpful at all, especially since this was our first day ever riding the tube. Eventually we picked a direction and were so happy to see this Portobello Road sign!

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 2

Looks like we found all the people!

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 3

Yes, we’re on the right road!

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 4

Aren’t these flats pretty?  I just adore the pastel colors!

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 6

We had to fight through this crowd to get into the shops. Saturday is not a good day to go to the market if you’re claustrophobic, it’s ridiculously crowded both inside and outside the shops. I felt like I was in a bee hive with the people buzzing all around me!

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 10

The street is lined with Antique shops full of all sorts of treasures and bric-a-brac. Let’s try this one!

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 5

Antique and vintage camera’s are a great start!  What else can we find?

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 11 copy

The outdoor stall dealers were more willing to make a deal. You wouldn’t believe how much Wedgewood they sell there. I think it was just about in every booth!

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 8 copy

Wow, gorgeous!  Can I have one of each, please? We’ll take the drum for my husband, Phil.

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 13

And then there was this gem of a stall, hidden within one of the indoor antique shops. I finally hit the jackpot! Wait til you see what’s in the next case!

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 12

Can you believe this wedding finery?  I swooned over these tiaras, headbands, wax flowers and pearls.

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 16

I brought home some pretty antique glass buttons, vintage french black and white buttons and some delicate lace.

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 19

Some Moon shaped gold bullion-embellished costume decorations.

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 17

And more beautiful lace! (Can you hear Mr Bennett from Pride & Predjudice saying “No lace. No lace, Mrs Bennett, I beg you!”) And, there will be more pictures of luscious lace when I share my treasures from the Old Spitalfields Market, I promise!

 

ScarletCalliope Portobello Rd 14

 

After fighting the crowds (literally, i was yelled at by some lady for hitting her with my purse. I think maybe it brushed past her, but who could help it in the crowded mess?) we headed for a restaurant to have a quiet lunch.  I adored the flowers and the romantic candles in this sweet cafe.

So, that’s what we did on our first day in London. We would have done more but there was a protest in the park and because of that the bus stops were shut down in Notting Hill so we just got on the Underground and headed back to our hotel to regroup.

I’m trying to decide what to share with you next. I went to two other markets (Greenwich and Old Spital Fields), attended a Tottenham Hotspur soccer game, dropped Trevor off at Soccer camp with a dining hall that looked like it came straight out of Harry Potter, toured London in the rain on a hop on, hop off bus, saw the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London, visited Oxford and Bampton Village, spent an afternoon eating scones with real Devonshire Cream and sipping tea at Downton Abbey, went to the Victoria and Albert museum to see the Wedding Dresses exhibit, visited Selfridge’s, rode around in cabs, double decker buses and figured out how to read the Underground maps, visited Cambridge and Greenwich, rode the Emirates Air Line, discovered the charms and helicopter pad of Charingworth Manor, and enjoyed an afternoon with Phil driving on the wrong side of the road (I suppose it’s the correct side in the UK) while sipping copious amounts of cappuccino throughout the Cotswolds and ended that day sipping champagne and enjoying a deluxe afternoon tea in Bath.

Let me know in the comments what you want to hear about next?  I’m sure it will be Downton Abbey, but I’ll be saving the best for last!

Cheers!

My friend, Carrie Harney, has a heart of gold and recently reached out to her creative friends to ask for our help for an Art Auction that will begin on Facebook on August 1. She shared that her friend, Cheri Brorsen and her beautiful family, are experiencing one of life’s most crushing trials. Tragically, Cheri’s husband, Donald, is fighting a battle with cancer and Cheri and her four children are facing a rough road ahead. Some of you may already know that I lost my mom to Leukemia as a very young girl and my heart just hurts for this family who will be experiencing the loss of a husband, son, father and friend to so many.

Carrie asked if we could help her raise some money for her friend to help pay some of their medical bills.  Do you ever have those moments in life where you feel like something you do can really make a difference? This was the call to action for me and my creative mind finally turned on, after a brief hiatus, and I started thinking of things I could make for the auction.  A lot of my creative friends are involved and the items they have created are stunning! And, Terri Brush has even donated a spot in her amazing Art Camp!

Go to the Love By Design Auction Page and LIKE it NOW and check out some of the wonderful items that are going to be available. More handmade items will be added each day to give you a chance to see them and choose your favorites. The auction action begins on August 1 and you won’t want to miss it! Mark it on your calendar so you don’t forget!

 

SC Necklace 3

 

I created a mermaid-inspired pink and silver wire-wrapped bead necklace with a soldered pendant featuring a Swarovski Crystal bedecked sea star floating in a sea of pink. Dangling from the pendant is a gorgeous pink lamp work bead atop a sparkling tassel of chains, beads and pearls.

 

SC Necklace 1

Inside the miniature shadowbox pendant you can see a peek of silver German glass glitter. Above the pendant is a pink glass heart-shaped bead and some petite pearl beads and sparkling crystal rondelles.

 

SC Necklace 2

The necklace also features vintage pearl colored beads, more delicate glass beads, and silver accents.

 

SC Necklace 4

The pendant can be worn with the starfish facing out or the Life of the Sea side facing out, with its delicate sprinkling of silver German glass glitter.

We found some wonderful treasures and shared some giggles and I thought I’d show you what I brought home. Check out this eye candy. It makes me Swoon!

Some gorgeous beads and some metal angels and hearts.

Some sparkling rondelles filled with crystals and a piece of lace that reminded me of spiderwebs.

A unique rosary chain from Italy.

And dreamy, hand tatted lace.

 

But my favorite items that I brought home were 3 GIANT, and I mean HUGE, vintage ledgers from France that I bought from Trino at Atelier de Campagne. You can see the beautiful pages underneath my treasures. I can’t wait to use these ledgers for some collage work and mixed-media projects!

Altered State: A Round Up of Altered Books

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

ScarletCalliope 4 up altered books

 

Altered Books, Art Journals, whatever you like to call it I call them amazing!  You can take any book, paint it, collage it, fold it or tear it and make it yours. Add some swatches of fabric, paint chips, some vintage ephemera and you have a great piece of art to enjoy that you personalized and created on your own.  Here’s a round up of interesting, eclectic and artistic altered books for you to enjoy.

At the end I’ve posted the name of the winner from my last post! Maybe it’s you!

 

 

1.  This is a pretty incredible example of an altered book way before Altered Books became cool.

 

7 book blog

This great blog post is brought to us by CappuccinoAndArtJournal and you’ll want to check out the other pages that she has posted from this antique journal, great stuff!

 

2. How incredible is this?

Altered Books

 

This book was taught at the MacLean County Arts Center in Bloomington, IL a year ago. How amazing is this?  I would love to take this class!  “Bring in some of your old books and turn them into art by cutting, drawing, gluing, collage, and just about anything you might think of to alter the state of an almost forgotten form of literature.”  WOW!

 

3.  I love the whimsy of this incredible book by Raidersofthelostart.

 

il_570xN.364955767_85w6

It’s available for purchase in their Etsy Shop.

 

4. Setting Them Free Altered Book by Sharen Chatterton

Altered-book-Butterfly-best

This is a stunning example of objects bursting out of the page, so lovely! The contrast between the plain images in the book and the colorful dimensional butterflies is wonderful.

 

5. One of my favorite artists is Ingrid Dijikers. I feel very fortunate to have taken a class with her at Art & Soul in Portland, OR several years ago. We created the beginnings of a book in her class “Through the Rabbit Hole”.

Alice_tunnel_book_front-235x177

All of her work is so incredibly artistic and even her doodles are perfectly placed. Check out her blog to see more of her amazing work!

 

6.  This is super cute!

tumblr_ldiqxppL1K1qzhokmo1_500-1

I found it on Tumblr so I’m not sure who to give the credit to. If anyone knows, let me know and I’ll update this!

 

7.  This gorgeous altered book was created by tarnishedandtattered

68167af99c2f1767dbf0b52095711ee3.

 

SWOON!

 

 

8.  Tarnished and Tattered also created this gorgeous Wedding Book as a present for her cousin.

 

ee

Unbelievably gorgeous!

 

 

9.  I am also loving this travel book by Melissa Thiese.

 

cardboard_box_mini_album_2

 

I’m planning on borrowing some design elements, (like the folded over page to create a pocket!) from it to document my last couple vacations when I finally get around to creating books about them!

 

 

10.  And this heart shaped book is stunning. I believe it was created by FlyinPurpleMunkiez.

bc20a88d775412a0b7ecaf2814bd0fc4-1

I love how it has hidden spaces to keep treasured items!

 

Thanks for joining me on this journey through altered books!

Have a wonderfully creative week!

xo,

Christine Barker

 

PS:  The winner from my last post is number 8, which is Patty Antle!!!  Congrats Patty!  Please visit my Etsy shop and choose one of the Pin Cushions priced at $15 and email me at kryztyne @ gmail.com (remove spaces) to let me know which one you’ve chosen. Thank you to everyone who left a comment, I appreciate you playing along!

Flea Market: My first booth at Behind the Picket Fence

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 18

 

It’s taken me years to feel brave enough to have my own booth at a flea market. I have a collection of things that I’ve been collecting for years, (plus a couple collections that I’m ready to call it quits with), all with the intention of selling them in my own personal boutique at a flea market. When I heard about the Behind the Picket Fence Marketplace, I just knew I had to give it a try. Well, first I thought about it and changed my mind a bunch of times, but in the end I made the leap and I’m so happy that I finally did it!

 

ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 1

 

Thankfully I had a petit army of people to help me with my state of mind and artfully arranging my booth. Going into this event I was scared as could be, but knowing that my sweet husband and son would be there to help me set up and sell gave me some peace of mind. They were spectacular helpers, setting up the booth, doing the heavy lifting, greeting customers as they stopped by and handing out my business cards. Trevor even had a side business going selling some of the hundreds of burlap coffee bean bags that I had for sale. (If you want some, please just let me know! I have a few left!)

And I’m so thankful for my friend, Deb Kennedy, who’s an extraordinary Writer, Stylist, Designer and Speaker based out of Orange County, CA. When I put out the SOS for help to foof up my booth and give it some decorator savvy, she answered the call. I was petrified that I would set up the booth and it wouldn’t look like the picture that I had in my head. Deb came to the rescue and got right to work, rearranging items, placing them just right and using items in ways that I NEVER would have thought of. Plus, she took all of these beautiful photos!

 

ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 14 ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 9 ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 7

Left to my own devices I would more than likely just put things out on the table but Deb knew just how to display things so that they would be shown to their best advantage. Like the vintage fruit picking sack, and the dress form, and the shabby chic tea pot with gloves.

 

 

ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 13 ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 11 ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 10

I also had a selection of my handmade Union Flag aprons and pillows, burlap pillows, and fancy pincushions available for sale.

 

 

ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 16

I created a variety of decor to give my booth my style so that people would know as soon as they saw it what I was all about. Several people asked if I would sell my fabric garland but I told them I’d have to charge them over $100 since it pretty much took me an entire day and too much fabric to create. I can’t sell it, it’s too pretty!

ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 15

Burlap and rose decorations.

 

 

 

ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 8

Petticoats on a parasol.

 

ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 6

And, I hand painted a sign with my name to let people know who I was.

 

 

Scarlet Calliope Frame 2 Scarlet Calliope Frame 1 Scarlet Calliope Frame 3

And finally, I had a photo booth to take pics of some willing shoppers as they stopped by.

 

All in all it was a wonderful day!  I felt great because I finally conquered my fear of participating in a flea market, I cleared out some of my inventory and I got to spend the day with some wonderful people. It meant so much to me for people that I knew to stop by my booth because it was so nice to see familiar faces and when they gave me compliments about my booth I was over the moon! I think I’m ready for the next challenge now, I’ve got this!

ScarletCalliope Picket Fence 2

 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I have some of these items and more listed in my Etsy shop if you are interested in purchasing them.

 

Also, this is my 125th post so I think that’s a reason to celebrate!  I’ll be giving away one of my pin cushions to one lucky person who likes this post and leaves a comment here on the blog. Who wants to win?

Paper Fun: Thank You featuring Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon

Tags

, , , , , ,

Today is bittersweet.

I’m saying goodbye to the Lovebug Creations Creative Team after being a part of them for the last year and a half. But, I’m giving myself more time to create art, discover what I want to do when I grow up and focus on making products to sell in my Etsy shop.

I’m so thankful that Kimi Cremar and Pamela Lash, aka Mama Lovebug, gave me the chance to play with their Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbons and let me shine in my own way. It was so exciting to be a part of their team, to receive new shipments of ribbons and products and to be exposed to their wide audience of crafters. But, more than that, I’m thankful that I gained two new friends who have been so supportive of my creative endeavors and have been among my greatest cheerleaders.

Not only did I just gain two new friends, I also gained other friends. From the lovely girls on the team to the crafters who subscribed and followed my blog and left so many sweet and heartfelt comments. It really kept me going on those days when my creativity was hiding somewhere in my head.

Thank you to all of you who have been a part of this leg of my creative journey. I’m so grateful that you are a part of my life and I hope that I can give back to you what you’ve been so generous in giving to me: inspiration.

So, with that said, I’d like to share my last Lovebug Creations project with you.

ScarletCalliope Thank You Card

 

I created this Thank You for both Kimi and Mama Lovebug to say Thanks for everything! I used Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon in Simply White from the Star Spangled Collection to make the pretty bow.

Thank you for stopping by and thank you so much for your time and your comments. I’ll be updating my blog from time to time with pics from my trips to flea markets, new products that I’m working on and any other inspirational field trips that I think you’ll want to hear about.

Have a wonderfully creative week!

XO,

Christine Barker

Favorite Things: Vintage Jello Molds

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I love Jello Molds, Tart Tins, or whatever you like to call these adorable aluminum mini pans. For whatever reason I’ve been buying them at the flea market and antique shops and I have quite a collection. Way more than I realized as I was just buying a couple here and a couple there. I put them all together the other day and was shocked at how many I had.

So, now I need to figure out what I’m going to do with all of them. Here’s a round up of ideas using these awesome little vintage containers:

 

 

ScarletCalliope Pin Cushion 19

I made these vintage inspired Pin Cushions, some featuring vintage Jello Molds, to sell at a recent Downton Abbey themed event that I went to. You can find them for sale in my Etsy shop.

 

c1243f3abe428be13946a70dacccd2b2

They’re used to make Tart Tin Jewelry Pendants, just add paper, embellishments and resin!

e1fec303d6f9efb8d21484f72473d1f7

What about some mini string lights?

 

il_570xN.541524539_i884

They can be a table number or photo holder, like this one made by LittleCottageCrafts on Etsy.

 

88041d94274a57c19c0118deed1fb60c

Or tea light holders like these.

 

IMG_4722-001

What about making some cute toadstools like these by Organized Clutter?

 

 

il_570xN.557275569_1q5x

They can be a cute little planter in your kitchen for succulents like this one by Botanicality.

 

 

il_570xN.523598754_2yar

They make a cute pincushion like this one by myvioletwonderland.

 

il_570xN-1.596259446_7lf6

Or an Altered Art Doll by myalteredmuse

 

DecoratedVintageJelloTins

Or they can be used as containers for a gift, like Linda McClain did.

 

6a01156f70f21e970c014e88386ef6970d-500wi

Or as mini assemblages like these from Jenni Bowlin.
