12 local artists have come together to bring you a collective show in the theme of the holiday classic, The 12 Days of Christmas. 12 artists, 12 days. Come see the different interpretations and meet the artist during this night of art and espresso. This is happening at the Tin Umbrella Coffee house in Hillman City. Just South of Columbia City on Rainier Ave. 5600 Rainier Ave S. Wonderful people, wonderful art. Come get into the spirit with us this Thursday night for 6-8.

Velvet, cashmere, silk, taffeta, are all some of the upcycled “feel me” fabrics behind the one-of-a-kind accessories and home decor made on a budget by Ms. Maude. Finding most of her materials at thrift stores, and yard sales makes it easy to pass the savings on to you, and kudos’ for helping to give new life to a tired sweater or unused vintage button.

Ms. Maude is the newest artist here at happy delusions, and can also be shopped on the world-wide web by way of her Etsy Store. Keep up the good work lady, we heart it mucho!

Barrette Steel Blue and Icy Blue Roses with Feathers

Come join us this Friday, June 19th from 5-9 to meet the artist!

It’s finally your chance to meet the people behind all the amazing crafts here in the shop. Stop on by and have a glass of wine, maybe a cupcake, chat with your favorite artist, and enter to win a drawing.

Whatever you are doing to bring in the new year, please be safe and always use your head. I suggest using your head to look as fashionable as possible. Come on down and pick up one of these great hats by noxenlux. The perfect party hat, and with all the masquerade balls going down in Seattle this year, you really can’t go wrong.
Carlee makes high quality hats and hair clips. I have a pink feather clip I am continually getting rave reviews on. While your getting in the burlesque mood, you can also pick up some totally hot pasties from gothfox.

 She has all kinds of fun pasties for every occasion. So weather your going out or staying in this new years be sure to have all your essentials. Essentials being a nice head piece paired with some super swingin pasties. Then get ready for the oogling to being.

Wow. I can’t believe I’m doing this myself. CRAZY. For a hip lady, like myself, who fancy’s herself to be a cybor robot, I know very little about life on the web. Yet here I am about to embark on blogging once a week. I can do it. I know I can. I’ll be posting all about my fantastic shop “happy delusions” and all the great merchandise we have, and all the wonderful people that come thru to say hi.

I just celebrated my first full year of business and things are going great. Here is my Mom and I at the big store gala last friday. Wine, cupcakes, and crazy fun people. We had a good time.
