Saturday Spotlight: Cindy from Cynthia lee Designs

Hi, everyone!   Kris from Junk Chic Cottage and I wanted to do a regular feature on our blogs, something unique that hasn't been done before.   So we came up with an idea to 'spotlight the real life behind the blogger' in a more personal way.
There is so much talent and inspiration in blogland, and we thought it would be fun to bring you a closer look at the person behind the blog.

Every week on Saturday we will spotlight a blogger and have them tell us a little bit about themselves and their blogs.  You will be able to see and read about each of the bloggers on both Kris's and my blog. 

      


Today I'm so pleased that my guest is Cindy from Cynthia lee Designs!  Cindy is not only kind, but talented too, and on her blog you might find her sewing, making jewelry, or showing off her latest junkin' finds!
Please sit back, relax, and enjoy getting to know Cindy better.


Hi everyone... My name is Cindy and I blog over at Cynthia lee Designs...where I write about my decorating projects, jewelry making, and crafting projects. Now for a little bit about me that you might not know... I am the youngest of three... this is my brother, my sister...who is the oldest, and me.

FCF-8 Love going to the flea market, thriftin', and junkin'. FM-1 Several years ago...we lived in a small tourist town that had antique and craft shops. I had a shop there for 4 years back in the 80's. IMG_1587 And I've been doing shows for 29 years...and loving it!! NHGSB My favorite thinks to create are my vintage style jewelry...

  1. Cindy and I have been fellow bloggers since we both started in this blogging world. She is a sweet, kind gal with lots of talent! I won a gorgeous necklace she made for a give-a-way last year! I enjoy her post with her favorite things she collects and finds at thrifts and fleas....We even tried to see if we could run in to each other at the longest yard sale one year..didn't happen though. Well maybe one day! Blessings, Cindy and Susan!

  4. Susan...just want to say thank you again for having me over here for Saturday Spotlight. Not sure what happened when I sent the post to you that made the sentences go all funny and the pictures not centered. Thinking it had something to do with Wordpress.
    Hope you have a great weekend.
