Showcase of Artisans & Upcycling Vendors "Friends" Week 4

This weeks showcase shines the spotlight on local artist and business owner Michael Smith. Michael and his wife Kellie own K & M Coffee Co. in Tallapoosa, Ga where you can find a few of his beautiful creations along with other local goodies while enjoying the best coffee in West Georgia.

Enjoy a few pieces from his collection below (bottom right is created using vintage glass insulators).

Make sure to go by K & M Coffee Co. to see these beauties in person or check out their newly opened online store on Etsy at MiKellsCreations .

The process used when creating these lamp shades begin with each piece of glass being individually wrapped and soldered together. Some of the lampshades include as many as 275 pieces of glass and can weigh in at 18lbs.

Each lamp is a one of a kind original as he creates his own patterns.

Showcase of Artisans & Upcycling Vendors "Friends" Week 3

This weeks segment showcasing vendors I have met and admired in my journey thru the fun/interesting world of antique, craft, resale malls will be located at The Checker Berry Shoppe . I choose this mall again for my week 3 spotlights since so many talented friends and fellow vendors call it home. I wanted to show some of the many bright and bold colors of spring. Jane P. and Debbie have such an eye for stunning color in their presentations I just had to share a few of their creations.

Jane P has 2 lovely booths on the main floor of The Checker Berry

I have always loved Jane P's floral Bridal Bouquets

Debbie is full of energy and has a unique variety of items sprinkled through out the mall
