Meet Tapestries of Nature, a force of nature!
Judy Walsberg and Janice Kempf
Tapestries of Nature
Lives in/Business located:
Elgin, IL and Glen Ellyn, IL
This will be Bonanza vendor appearance:
remade, redefined, repurposed junk for home decor and personal accessories. We embrace the rusty, tattered, shattered, shabby and the discarded to add character and life to the designs.
Favorite activity besides junking:
making things out of junk and schmoozing with friends
Would save if the workshop were on fire:
whatever we could grab on the way out
You knew you were a junker when:
When I started saving wood boxes, covered in cow poo that I found in barnyards as a child. Also have always loved old buckets and ground-found things. I still love this stuff.
Three words that describe you:
location, location, location
Three words that describe your product:
artsy, creative, useful
If you couldn’t be a junker, you’d be:
a miserable junker wannabe
You couldn’t stand to sell it once you found it:
Welsh white porcelain flower, funeral and grave bouquet with a rusty wire and tin base. I knew it would sell immediately but couldn’t bear to part with it. It now sits on top of my vintage dresser.
We understand the urge! We also wish we could see a picture! We’ll stand by to see what other fun finds will be accompanying Judy and Janice to the Bonanza!
