Something wonderful arrived in the mail the other day.....a precious gift from Elizabeth at Home Musings ~ she has such a sweet spirit. She gifted me the most wonderful little girl's dress and a silver baby bowl! Upon closer inspection, I realized it was a Campbell's Kids bowl!! I just love it Elizabeth...I will use the little bowl with our new little granddaughter.....
You know me so well sweet friend!
I remembered I had a few boxes of children's books in the closet of my artroom and decided to look through them the other night. I found so many wonderful books that I'd collected that will be the perfect beginning of a little library for our granddaughter!! I've collected them as I love the illustrations! I feel like, if I would have finished college, as I was going to major in art, that this is what I would have been, a children's book illustrator ~ I admire them all so much ~
I discovered this tiny book illustrated by one of my very favorites, Jessie Wilcox Smith ~ just look at how beautiful they are ~
Well, I finished the nest assemblage!!! And the taking of the photographs too! Now I just need to edit the photos, add step-by-step instructions and compile them into a document suitable for the Lessons from The Nest....I'm so pleased with how this one came out. A perfect project, with images included, to start learning how to create an assemblage.
Can you even believe that it's November 19th?? I remember as a child, the days slowing eeeking by...just waiting for the Christmas holiday break ~ it was such a wonderful time for us kids.
We didn't have much money when I was growing up but there was one thing for certain, our Christmas' were always magical, my parents made sure of that ~ and always full of love.
Wishing you have a wonderful Wednesday sweet friends!
