is now open!

I went to see her new store last week

and was thrilled with the new look.

The outside is blooming color and an invitation

to come in that is hard to resist.

Julie has done a good job of combing

home and garden that shows how well

they can work together.

showcasing small furniture pieces that

can work in almost any home

accesories play a big part in all decors

for every room of the house

pillows add so much to a room

plants are for indoors

and out

and can be put into anything

This is also a place to buy gifts, for

yourself or others

I love the way she displays the jewelry

welcome back Julie, you were missed

Come in the evening, come in he morning,
Come when expected, come without warning,
Thousands of welcomes you'll fine her before you,
And the oftener you come, the more we'll adore you.

Some of the fun of representing the

  is they send me pictures of new creations

 all the time, not just twice a year.

I'm going to share the latest treasures.

Brass Instrument “Curves” Sculpture

I love the lines on this piece.  It was created

using a 18" long b7 2.75" wide vintage wood

foundry mold as the base and 7 of some of the

most interesting vintage brass musical instrument

elbows and bends to form an interesting sculpture.

9 Vintage Finial Wood Foundry Molds on Stands

This is a rare set of vintage foundry mold patterns,

mostly likely from the 40's and 50's.  Each is unique

and one of a kind in its shape and size.  The tallest

measures 17" and widest (looks like an acorn)

 measures 5" wide. Some were once two parts 

(halves) and combined to create the full form.

The stands are recycled nickle plated brass that

were once used as weights on vintage lab  equipment.

The rods joining each are brass.

Three Vintage Rotary Wheel Cutters on Stands

Three different vintage rotary type cutters are mounted

on recycled stell gases with the perfect amount

of rust.  The talles is 11.5" and bases are 3.5" wide.

Vintage Brass Fans on Foundry Mold Bases

The brass blades were taken from vintage fans and

mounted on foundry mold bases.  The brass colored one

is on a black foundry mold base and measures

about 20" tall.  The black one is brass pained black

and stands about 18" tall.  The blades both measure

about 12" across.

Vintage Round Brushes on Stands
Three different types of vintage round brushes

all mounted on 3.5" recycled steel disks that

they found in a container of vintage lab equipment.

The tallest is 9" tall.

Three Vintage Camera Faces

Sold as a set of three, these vintage camera

faces are mounted on vintage 4 x 5 camera film

sleeves.  The larger one is a Voigtlander camera

faxe and measures 8.5" by 6" and the other

two are Kodak measuring 5" x 7".

Since the bling has been such a popular item

The JUNKGIRLS have been very creative and

come of with another way to use the vintage flatware.

Tablecloth Weights

The handle ends will vary in length from

2" to 3" and sold in a set of four.  They will

be grouped according to size and set will have

four different patterns.

Another option for the Tablecloth weights are the

fork prungs.

Very fun hostess gift for the holiday season.

SCENTS AND FEEL  has moved into the bedroom.

The introduction of king size bedcovers are

a great additional to this already beautiful line. 

They are the size of a king size duvet, 94 x 104,

but would also work on a queen size bed.

Handwoven with a very luxorious 100%  cotten

that is very soft to the touch.

This one is a natural, grey brown combination

which could fit well with many design styles, I would

use it on my grey linen bedding from POM POM AT HOME

off white and gold stripe, very subtle elegance

would be beautiful with cream, beige linen bedding.

off white with white stripe

This is very stricking in a natural, fushia mauve combination

Another beautiful piece is this linen damask

tablecloth in off white and beige

It measures 78 x78 and could also be used as

a bedcover at the end of a bed or thrown over a sofa.

Jacquard striped tablecloths 70 x 100

are shown here in off white, brown and green,

also available in a navy blue.

napkins are also available in all colors

A little more ethnic style tablecloth, 80 x 100,

in off white, green and blue background with

the design in rose and green.

Please contact me for availability and prices

The SUGARBOO DESIGNS showroom had

 so many new things.  The pillow collection

has been expanded and they were a big hit.

 Some of the best selling art pieces

have been turned into 24 x 24 burlap pillows.

The Life is Beauty Full antique sign

the large photo box quote

now a pillow

My friend Julie who is opening her new

from the original art collection

Elephants were a popular theme

either Holding Flowers

with an apple

with a key "always"

the hat is a cute touch

Elephant speaking  "Life is Beauty Full"

And the whale speaks

"Because your heart is like the ocean

I love you"

Both of these are 16 x 19 done in a nice burlap fabric

Pillows can be hard to display especially if you

don't show furniture, here is one solution

Art Prints were a plenty

Hold Fast to Your Dreams

Beautiful Elephant

One Bird

Love you Madly

He said there are always flowers

A new concrete piece, Dove with Note
