Jan's Treasures

I'm a little late in posting this but here is the rest of my Saturday's adventures. As you may remember, this is my very good friend Jan. I think I have her talked into starting a blog. I am so excited. When she does I'll give you the address so you can visit. In the photo below she has on a necklace that she made from old china. It has the date on it...1911. Isn't it amazing?
This is a picture of Jan holding one of her paintings. She is so amazing. I don't know if you noticed in the Paris Street Market post but she also painted the banners in the background.
This is her beautiful jewelry.

And more of her beautiful jewelry. I love everything. You can see the jewelry made of old broken china in this picture.
This is my very special set that Jan made for me. Isn't it beautiful? I just love it. I will think of her always whenever I wear it. If she starts a blog she will be selling her jewelry so you will all have a chance to own something special.
You can see the broken china pieces really well in this picture.
Aren't these bottles way too cute? They were imported from France so I had to buy one for Jan too!! They had a sparkling lemonade in them. Jan kept teasing me about giving her something with 27 grams of sugar but my dear friend I want you to know I reread the label and they have only 22 grams of sugar. But wasn't it worth it? She tied the ribbon around hers. I haven't decided what to do with them yet, but something special.
Don't you love the pot? It is sitting on the back of my commode!!

And this piece is so very special. It was made in 1910. I jokingly told her I was going to paint it white. She made me promise I would take a picture a week just to make sure it was still red.
I hope you enjoyed Jan's booth. I really should have taken more pictures of her wares but we always get to talking and laughing and I forget. Maybe next month at A Paris Street Market.
A very special thank you to Crystal and Anna, my two loyal visitors. I appreciate you both so much for making me feel welcome. And yes, I came home broke!!
