PICNIC was awesome. Maine -of course- got hit with the first big snow storm of the season, but there was still a great turn out! It made things challenging but also festive!
I wish I took more pictures! … Once we (‘we’ is my awesome, helpful, husband & I,) finally made it through the blizzards obstacles & got set up, it was a GREAT day! I’d like to shout out & thank you holiday shoppers for not letting a little snow stop you, & for your patronage!

Is where the party is at! This Sunday, December 15th! It’s PICNIC!
I honestly have the greatest batch of awesome for you. Really spectacular vintage, freshly made magnets, earrings, ornaments, & very gift-able original paintings! It’s all getting a few final touches, & as soon as I get some pictures, I’ll share it all here for a sneak preview – by the end of the week.
Until then. Here’s a little collaboration I did with my fabulous friend Kristyn Platt.
Now that I have a babe of my own I see the value of having such a message on your car. If in a car accident the first thing a rescuer will look for is the baby, & I also like to think, people may drive a little more responsibly around a vehicle transporting a child. So here’s our new modern take on ‘Baby on Board!’ The idea was for it to be eye pleasing as well as get the message across. it’s a 5” x 5” decal & I’ll have the first, hot off the press, batch for sale @ PICNIC!
What a perfect gift for that new hip family in your life! ;D

Well, I know I’m not breaking any ‘news’ to anyone – fact is, when a baby comes into the picture, your whole world revolves around that little babe.
I’m a mommy first but an artist to the core. -Happily, despite these rules of nature, I have found a balance & have gotten a hand full of commissions done these past 5 months. This one is the latest & my new favorite.
By request, my take on, blue jays meet Gatsby, as well as, she wanted it to be similar to my original ‘A Whales Weight in Mountains.’ 4′ x 4′ Mixed media painting. >
Everything takes me a bit longer to do these days. BUT I’m working! & I’d love to work with you! If you’d like something custom made, please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
On another note, I’m so excited to announce I’m participating in this year’s holiday ‘PICNIC’ sale. So I’m a busy little elf getting ready for that! I’ll be selling art & vintage. Stay tuned for details.
Best wishes, love nikki

Seeing these images were like a slice of delicious pie for my eyes. – I had to share these vibrant colored circus moments from the 40’s & 50’s, so I could gaze at them when ever I wanted.
These are my favorites, you can see more via – flavorwire.com.

This summer has been a ‘I’m a new mama BLUR’ a happy blur but swoosh, just here and gone. Despite mt new job as a mom & my activity, or lack there of, here in blog land, my creativity is still alive & well. I’ve been painting and flea-ing all summer long.
& The vintage has been piling up! Here is a snip-it of some of the gold I’ve dug up: From vintage jewels, leather goods, to planters to SO many, amazingly cute, salt and pepper shakers. & There’s so much more not pictured here- purses, tools, shoes, vintage posters & maps, and lots of framed prints. My collecting is in surplus, time to start sharing again.
