Happy Holidays

I'm so sorry, I've been MIA for the past 2 months. Since my last post I've been busy in the studio, and working on getting my little business off the ground. I've registered my name, juliejayne, with the state of Illinois and now I'm officially in business! On Tuesday, November 29th from 6-9pm the village of Glen Ellyn, IL is having Ladies Night Out. Please come out and support the 20 participating independently owned shops. There will be gifts, coupons, libations, and food as you stroll through the shops in search of the perfect holiday gifts.
These beautiful pieces are part of a collection from A Bella Bead, in Urban Chic Home.

I've been busy pursuing my passion of taking flea market and thrift store finds and altering them to (hopefully) appeal to today's shoppers.
I have been a vendor at 2 of this summer's 3 French Hens markets and have some of my things in Urban Chic Home in Glen Ellyn, IL. Here are a few of the products Beckie carries in her great little eclectic, shabby, vintage shop from a few of the other vendors.
Below is a sample of the lampshades I alter. They're all one of a kind. Everything you see here is for sale. If you can't make it to Urban Chic, just email me if you see something you like and we can make sure it gets to you asap.
Beckie carries the most unique gifts, isn't this little handbag the best?
Every chalkboard I make just flies out the door! I also take special orders.
I've had so much fun bleaching bottle brush trees for the past few weeks. This one is on top of an old candlestick turned upside down, too fun!
Watch this space for a new look. I've contracted with an awesome artist to design a logo for my business. It should be finished very soon! I will try my VERY best to post weekly from here on out. I will also get my etsy shop back up very soon. Thanks for your patience with me. If I only could get rid of this pesky day job......I'd have more time for the more important things in life!


  1. You have been a busy bee! I love the lampshade and that chalkboard is to die for! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!


  2. Hey there Bella friend! Just checked in today and it sounds like you have been very busy! So excited to hear about your new business venture. I am sure it will be a huge success. Hope all is well with you and yours.
