[ charming lucky jackson ]

ONE OF THE best things about taking part in the big Muskoka Arts & Crafts Show is meeting all the other artists that create the most interesting and original pieces. I stumbled upon a booth by Lucky Jackson who is from Peterborough, Ontario, not too far from where I am.

The cheerfulness of her booth, with colourful floral bunting and her amazing art pieces is what drew me in (sorry, I didn't get a shot of it!). But the best part of Jennifer's (Lucky's) work is that she uses vintage sheets and pillowcases to create the most charming layered pieces with hand embroidery, screen printing, wood veneer and hand painting.  I knew that one of her pieces would be going home with me - they were all just too happy to pass up!

I chose this one - I love the fabrics and the charming cotton lace trim along the hem of her skirt. And the embroidery hoop frame is the finishing touch! If you're looking to add a bit of happy vintage retro art to your space, take a peek at her Etsy shop
