2837 SE 109th Ave.,Portland, OR 97266 (That's 1 1/2 blocks south of Division Street)



    This event has been re-scheduled from last weekend in hopes
    that more of you can make it.
    As most of you already know, I am simplifying my life and

    bringing my studio home.
    Getting rid of so many things and hopefully there will be
    something you'd like to take
    home with you. Small furnishings, assorted vintage pieces,
    paintings and other art, jewelry,
    linens, arts & crafts supplies (Tons!), clothing, Brighton belts,
    holiday d├ęcor and so
    much more! Come early for the best selection!
    This will probably be a three or four phase event
    as I have so much to sort through.
    28 years in the same house and several different studio
    locations means alot of inventory.
    I will be adding more things all the time!
    *NOTE: I do accept credit cards with the square! 
    Hope to see you there!
    xoxo, Chris/Momma

    Here is a sampling of some of what you
    will find at the sale:

"Momma's Back!" Well sorta!

It's been almost a month since my last blog post and soooh much has happened since then!
I'm all out of Cottage Vintage and Billie is closing up the shop to start a new venture
which we will all be hearing about soon. So now my plan is to create a working studio space in my home. This may sound like no big deal as I already have a studio space, but believe you me, I've got a real big job ahead. My home studio was just that..."MY" home studio! Meaning I sure wouldn't want anyone to join me there! It's one huge mess! I have much sorting, organizing and redecorating to do before I'll be able to have guests. But first I have several shows I'll be participating in as well as my own big sale here at home! So here is what's currently on Momma's
Calendar of Events:
Sunday, August 11th
9am ~ 4pm
519 3rd St., Lake Oswego, OR 97034
(Between B & C Avenues)

I will keep you all posted as to how my home studio is coming along,
in the mean time, I will be available for private classes in your
home, shop, studio or other location. Check the Art Circus blog for past classes at: www.artcircus.blogspot.com
Hope to see all of you soon!
