It was another spectacular weekend drenched in color here on the Metro Homestead. NYC was soaked in blazing autumn color. But that did not keep me away from the annual One Of A Kind Show & Sale. This event, which occurs each Dec. for only two weekends, showcases some of the finest, hardest working artisans around. Not limited to these parts, these talented folks bring their high crafts from homesteads near and far.
Me and and my fellow craft crawler saw a heap of amazing work! But of particular note was a fine gal I met who came all the way from Houston, TX. Stephanie Rubiano lovingly and painstakingly creates little wall boxes that, to my eye, appear as storied time capsules. Constructed of vintage photographs, notes, nic-knacks and real, exotic insect wings, her work is thought provoking, well crafted and beautiful to look at. And if you hang your hat in her parts and want to know just how she does such fine work, she teaches workshops! So shimmy over to Stephanie's site....ya'll.
