Just about anything can be turned into art ~

Or at least that's what I'm telling myself!!
I hope you don't think I'm going off the deep end
but my son was throwing away a pair of khaki shorts the other day
and I loved the look of them!!
Tattered, torn...(I think he bought them that way :)
so I've started working on a little something on canvas ~
I love pockets and pouches,
they are just waiting to hold wonderful things, don't you think?

A recent find I had to share with you ~
a wonderful small pitcher with gorgeous crazing and staining...

If you would have asked me years ago
if I would buy this in an antique store
I would have said, "no way!"
but now that I'm older, I see the beauty of stains and crazing :)

I've put together single sample packs of The Feathered Nest egg soap!!
Only 3.00 and that includes shipping in the US ~
I've included a sweet tiny nest to hold the egg too!

They're in the shoppe if you're interested in trying a sample ~

Today is sweet Emily's birthday and we gave her a gift certificate to Barnes & Noble. She loves books as much as I do, so we're heading off to the book store today ~ Clara enjoys it too!!

Be sure to stop by and see Chris at Maple Ridge Vintage ~
she has some precious children's images to give you!!!

Wishing you a great Tuesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Dawn, SO cute!!! i love pockets too...a long time ago...when i was more into sewing...i used the pocket's from my oldest son's tiny bib overalls to put pockets onto Christmas stockings...they were really sweet!!!

Happy Birthday to your sweet Emily! Have fun browsing in the bookstore. I know you will find something fantastic to share with us.

LOVE the pocket. Now I know I am not alone, I just kept an old denim shirt that I used as a painting smock because I loved the spattered pocket. Hopefully one day it too will make it into my art.

Have a fun day with your girls!


Funny about those shorts - does your son know you have them morphing into an art project? Can't wait to see the final creation ~ so clever of you to envision a canvas project! Have a lovely week ~ Angela

OMG! I love the sample of the soap you put together! What a great stocking stuffer idea or if you put together a gift basket {like for teacher gifts}. Oh Dawn .... I may have to buy a couple of these!

Lou Cinda said...

I can't wait to see what you are creating! I know it will be fabulous!! I love stains and crazing too! More crazing these days! lol

Have a great week!

Dawn if anybody can make beautiful art out of a pocket, it would be you. Can't wait to see what you do with it. I absolutely love and am coveting the little pitcher. I have a small collection myself and would love to find one like that! Have a wonderful day.

Hi Dawn,
Only you would look at a pair of khakis and see artistic potential in them! : )
I love your little pitcher and I'm so excited that you're offering samples of your egg soap. I just ordered one ~ I think they may be perfect for some little dishes I'm giving a couple friends for Christmas, so i may be back for more.

Happy Birthday to emily and I know you all are having fun at Barnes & Noble.

I just love coming over here for a visit.
You always have the sweetest posts.

Love the khaki pockets, but I would probably have to 'rough' them up a bit more, and pour some tea on them.
A little too nice for my crows. =0))))

Cute little egg soaps in the nests.

Thanks for the tip on the images. Going over to check them out.
(better go for my walk first I guess). =0))

Blessings on your day friend.

I'm getting the same way about appreciating the older treasures.
