One of the artist's work that caught my attention was that of Tom Williams. I loved everything he did that the store had on display. I ended up buying a metal heart necklace hanging on a red suede string. Tom has taken his love of hot fire melting metal to make creative art. When he won the Elegance award in the Flagstaff Recycled Art Show, it got his creative juices flowing. He decided to open a gallery in Williams in September of 2011. A year later, he entered another piece he called "Shoeguaro" and won Best in Show. He also, along with a couple of other men, created "The Mars Kaleidishpere" which can be seen at the Lowell Observatory.

I shopped in two of the stores. In Colors of the West, I found a couple of Route 66, Williams, AZ tees for me and my hubby. In the Copper Canyon Trading, I bought an awesome metal barrel-shaped wine cork holder and an old west cowboy wine cork stopper named "Scruffy". The stopper was carved in wood by Matt Hey (www.peterscreekstudios.com) who pays meticulous attention to detail to bring you an one-of-a-kind character and design.

I found a sweet birdhouse ornament for our tree and a tin coffee cup for decoration. We must have wandered around the shop for a while before settling on the items we bought. If you are ever in Williams, be sure to check out Yuletide Treasures.

I love going to the antique malls and shops to get old items for useful decorations. My house has lots of these items throughout and in each room. I just bought a wagon and metal bucket to eventually put in my yard with flowers inside. I also picked up the top on an old metal rake to use for my future wine area in my kitchen. I will use it to hold wine glasses. As I collect more and finish these projects, I will share the photos.
Here are some of the decorating ideas from the antique mall that I liked:
