Found: Good Stuff!

I love random forgotten objects. Trinkets that have been separated from what they originally were created to be with or broken watches, chains, loose pearls ~ and to be able to combine them together to create a wonderful piece of artwork, how cool is that??

I found this new book at Books-A-Million Sunday afternoon and just KNEW that I had to have it!! I've been wanting to try my hand at creating jewelry and hope that seeing these step by step instructions will encourage me to try to create a piece or two. We'll see . . .



I finally found the new Home Companion magazine. This is a good issue to me. They've been getting a little mod on me as I am such a lover of vintage, cottage and old. I love it when they feature artists and their studios. Don't you love seeing how other's organize their supplies and where they work? I was so glad to find this at the book store as well.


While out scouting around Friday for trinkets and treasures, I found this wonderful Paris guide an antique mall and love all the graphics inside. I'm wanting to do a French assemblage and these pages are just perfect for the backdrop!!





Do you ever reach the end of the day and chide yourself? I want to be so very productive and if at the end of the day, I haven't achieved all the many things that I've set out to do, I just beat myself up over it! I think women have a tendency to do that, don't you?

Well, tomorrow is another day ~ I'm going to start making lists and marking the to-do items off. Maybe that will show me my accomplishments a little better!

Your books are wonderful - I can just imagine all the wonderful ideas they have inspired in you to create :-}. I love the ME magazine and have been looking for the latest issue (the Valentine issue was still out). I love the Spring cover! Have a great day Dawn.

I love Home Companion. I flipped through a copy at the store the other day and I can't imagine why I didn't buy it. Now I have to go back.

That's funny, I'm scrolling along and suddenly up pops a picture of the very book sitting on my desk waiting for me to do something with. My DH got that guide oh so many many years ago when he lived & worked in Paris for a short time. Lucky dog! We were going through some of his old photos and slides and he gave me that book.

Hugs
