Meeting a wonderful artist!



While in Gilbert Arizona I had the pleasure to meet Jan Obertein. I love everything about this sweet lady. She walked into Vintage Bliss Warehouse on Friday morning while I was getting ready for my first make and take at 10 am. We talked and I found out that she knew about me and The Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks. Small world! 
Jan took the make and take class and she did really well, we talked some more and she said that she had something to show me......What I saw next was unbelievable! 
Check this out....

Handmade Journals, Totes, Evening Bags, Pillows and Cards.
All the pages are hand stitched, little messages inside, embroidered  tiny roses, vintage lace and ribbons.....






I will have Jan's work for sale at the next
Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks.

Can't wait for you to see it in person.

Ciao for now

Rita
