April: "Le Beau Jardin" Market!


"Gardening is a folly whose goal is to provide delight."  -- Deborah Needleman.

At long last Spring has finally arrived, and we're actually beginning to believe that the warmer weather is here to stay.  To celebrate Spring's long-awaited arrival, Confectionique's April market theme is "Le Beau Jardin" -- the beautiful garden!

In addition to gardens and gardeners, April evokes all things Spring -- all manner of flora, fauna, and the ground and air coming alive again in so many ways.  Our April market theme weaves all of these together into one tapestry of garden decor and Spring delights -- with a French twist, of course!

And remember -- Mother's Day is just a month away, and we'll have a boutique full of vintage gifts from Paris.  Let us help you fill your basket with vintage, Parisian and handmade treasures!

Join us for a complimentary glass of wine on Thursday, April 9 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm as we kick off the "Le Beau Jardin" market with our traditional Nuit Blanche celebration!



Our April "Le Beau Jardin" Market Hours:  

Thursday, April 9:   5pm-8pm

Friday, April 10:         10am-5pm
Saturday, April 11:   10am-5pm
Sunday, April 12:       Noon-5pm

Confectionique's Académie: Our Creative Offerings for April!

Hand-stitched nesting wee birds, rag swags and mosaics, oh my!  We have three class offerings during our April "Le Beau Jardin" market Space is limited and these classes tend to be quite popular, so we do suggest you send your deposit and register as quickly as you can. We look forward to seeing you, creating with you and celebrating the coming spring season with you! As always we partake in healthy snacks and tea or water to help keep our minds focused and bodies healthy.    Reservations are required -- just email us or message us on Facebook.  


Broken China Mosaic: Back by popular demand! Connie Jean has agreed to teach another broken china mosaic class! She'll teach you how to piece together a beautiful mosaic out of vintage, broken china. Make a garden plaque, birdbath, picture frame or tray!
Enrollment is limited to no more than 4.


P.S.:  If you have a favorite figurine or piece of broken china you would like to incorporate into your project, bring it along!

Date: Saturday April 11, 10 am-12:00 pm Cost: $40.00/ $10.00 deposit - to include all materials.  Instructor: Connie Jean

Nesting Wee Bird: With this class we will work together with cotton fabric, ink, paper and wire to hand-sew and embellish this little bird. Then, we will create a nest for this little cotton-gem to rest, er, nest in! This is a process class where we begin with a pattern and see that result of our creative handy work. All supplies are included.  Limit:  4 students.
Date: Saturday April 11, 2:00-4:00
Cost: $40.00/ $10.00 deposit - to include all materials
Instructor: Anastasia


Rag Swag: Given all the kind comments regarding the handmade rag swag curtain across our shop window,and the request to learn to make one, I have decided to include this craft class for April. There are so many fun applications for the rag swag.  It is super easy, but so much fun to do as a group.  We will have scads of fabric remnants in white, off white, linen, white tulle, variety of laces, champagne and golds and many other shabby mute colors on hand. We will use our energy to cut and rip strips of fabric to make a rag swag bunting. Feel free to bring a curtain rod if you wish to make a window dressing, otherwise large jute will be provided for a bunting. If you have a special piece of fabric you want to incorporate bring that too. We can only fit 4 in this class given all the energy involved and space required.
Date: Sunday April 12, 2:00-4:00
Cost: $40.00/ $10.00 deposit - to include all materials        
Instructor: Anastasia

We hope you can join us!

Guest Artist for the Le Beau Jardin Market: Kenny Massey

A sincere thank you to Sue Massey for this heartwarming biography of her husband Kenny, an amazing garden artist.  We cannot think of a better artist for our April "Le Beau Jardin" Market. We are so grateful that both Kenny and Sue will be joining us as our special guest artists for Nuit Blanche on Thursday April 9, 5-8:00 pm.

Sculptor Kenny Massey is drawn to recycled metal. Metal, born from the Earth's crust. Iron ore quarried, melted down and turned into metal which eventually will rust and return to the earth. A perfect fit for this artist. Kenny Massey is a rare find. He is a salt-of-the-earth kind of guy. A man with a gentle soul, few words and deep thoughts. Born and raised country, his roots are embedded in a respect for the land, family and community. 


After giving a life time of providing for and raising his family of five (now) young adults, it is his time -- time to express himself through his sculptures. Sculptures that span from massive in size to petite hearts to hold in your hand. 




Kenny takes great pride in his careful selection of each piece of recycled metal. He then submerges himself in the process of expression as he cuts, welds, warms, bends, polishes, torches and breathes life into each piece which carries a bit of himself within it. 

It is through his skill, strength, determination, and tenacity that each piece becomes a Kenny Massey original. The paint colors Kenny selects are all originals from his love for tractors and farm/ranch machinery: John Deere green, International red, to Allis-Chalmers orange, etc. You can view more Kenny Massey "Hearts Aglow" sculptures: Masseyslandscaping.com or Masseys Landscaping on Facebook or MasseyFamilywHeART on ETSY.  Commission work welcome (Interior/Exterior)

Confectionique's March "Le Lapin" Market Features Lovely Retro Renos!

Bonjour friends -- 2015 is certain to be a year of fun at Confectionique! Along with our themed markets and classes, we will be giving select artists who live in or near our community an opportunity to share their talents and treasures with you. Beginning in March,  we will feature an artiste invite (guest artist) during our Nuit Blanche events – our opening Thursday nights.

For our "Le Lapin" Market (opening Thursday March 12 and continuing through Sunday March 15), we are delighted to present Stefanie, the one-woman show behind LovelyRetro Renos.  She’s a wife and momma to four little kiddos (with number five due Spring of 2015).  Stefanie describes herself as a “crafty junkie"  who loves to sew, paint, and build whenever she can. 

Stefanie enjoys her power tools, including her grandpa's radial arm saw and jig saw, and she feels like she can take on the world when cutting things with her reciprocating saw.  Stefanie also believes in the power of paint!  She combines these into beautiful and useful home treasures.

Stefanie loves the eclectic mix of shabby chic, industrial, and farm-antiques. She is delighted to be featuring her beautiful work at our Le Lapin Market on Thursday March 12 from 5-8pm only.  Stop in and show Stefanie your support and let her talk with you about her creative process.

Merci Stefanie!
