 This Louisiana themed “junk” necklace was a special request.  The photo doesn’t really show the details like i had hoped.  I lucked up on a Louisiana license plate key chain tag from the 70’s that really made this project complete.  Other little details include a tiny “geaux tigers” charm, a couple of fleur de lis, and a “Laissez le bon temps rouleau” bottle charm.  Hope she likes it!

Unique find…

Found this cute little cabinet on my last trip to canton and just loved it..thought it would be super cute atop a chest of drawers, dresser, or shelf unit… But was unable to find it a spot in my home. Soooo… I’m passing on this unique find and the good deal I got on it! It’s at the shop (bayou crafters). Feel free to contact me with any questions.

I’m loving these caps! Brown is by far the most popular choice…but they also come in black, light blue, white, bright pink, orange, and dark green.

(and no..i didn’t make these :o)

i know..iknow…it’s been too long since my last post…and you are hearing from me now frankly because i can’t do anything else.  I have a severe sinus infection…and get dizzy when i get up and get moving around…so i’m stuck on the couch…(Thank God for laptops!)…and i’m feeling quite chatty! 

So…i’ve been doing alot of thinking lately about my business name…”not too shabby”…for anyone who hasn’t known me long…i started out repurposing and building shabby chic furniture, fixtures, decor, etc…  I absolutely loved finding old pieces of furniture a new life…but gave it up after having drew….just didn’t have enough time to get out and build and paint…much less rummage the countryside for discarded hopeless furniture.  Anyway…i found a new passion…(or more accurately.. it found me)…..jewelry.  I design and hand fabricate  much of my “junk”….as well as handpick jewelry to compliment my designs. 

Saying all that…i’m not sure that “not too shabby” makes sense for me…or my business anymore…and am considering a name change.  I’m trying to stay away from the obvious, overused options.  Would like something that describes all of my “junk”.   I have even considered not having a business name…just saying (for businesscard purposes)…”jewelry and junk…designed-handcrafted-handselected by kelley calloway”…wordy i know…other ideas: lucky girl,junk,  just junk, jewelry and junk (i know i use “junk” alot…it’s what i affectionately call my work…and my way of keeping it real ;0)

i would absolutely LOVE suggestions….and to sweeten the deal…anyone who comes up an original business name that i decide to use….will get a $50 gift certificate for my junk!!!

comment here…or email your suggestions directly khcalloway@gmail.com
