Yummy good stuff!!!

Some of my posts are short, sweet and simple
but sometimes my posts are CHOCK FULL of stuff!!
This is one of the FULL posts.....

First, a gorgeous print of the Eiffel Tower that I found ~
for you my sweets!



One of the pitfalls of junkin' for your little antique space
is finding wonderful treasures....
and then wanting to KEEP them!!!



Sweet paper roses from The Plum Tree....



A beautiful book too, thank you Sharon!



A rusty, busted iron piece...



I had the cloche but found the perfect
little tarnished plate to fit underneath ~




I love an old dictionary or two...or three...



And you've already seen this!





I've had this old bassinet for a few weeks now ~
and it's pretty busted up, the bottom is falling out
plus I even see electrical tape holding the leg brace in this photo...
It was supposed to be for the space...
but it looks so good here in the studio...
and I'm kind of getting attached to it!!!



So is it good that my husband rented this space??? :)
I'm finally taking in the few things we've gathered on Friday ~


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


I just have to show you this beautiful collage
Linda of Lambsworld created from
my angel collage tutorial in Artist Class!

What I love about her collage is that she used her mother's
photograph instead of the angel image!!!

Such a beautiful piece sweet Linda, I love it ~




A sweet new blogger, Angie Rea, contacted me wanting to use one
of my photographs to create a piece of artwork...
remember the cardinal nest?
I just posted it again yesterday....
you have GOT to visit her to see her beautiful artwork!!

Here is one of Angie's FINISHED pieces.....



The beginnings of the nest project:





Another wonderful blogger I've discovered ~
Jacque of Old Soul Studios
AND The Creative Gardener
She has two blogs filled with tons of creative goodness!!



I hope I haven't worn you out this time!!!!
Thank you always for stopping by to see me sweet friends ~
Have a great Thursday!!!
hugs and love,
Dawn

becky said...

Lovely stuff.Thanks for sharing too and also giving us the names of other bloggers you enjoy!

Lululiz said...

You do realise that you are responsible for me not getting any housework done, don't you? Quite apart from your own lovely posts, you find new interesting blogs which just have to be visited and added to the reading list, lol.
The Eiffel Tower print is really lovely, I'll have to do something with that very very soon.

Elyse said...

Little flutters from heaven, that what this post is! Thank you so much for the image - how could you know that I am working on a new piece with a French theme - perfect! Can't wait to visit the yummy links and I think I would fill that sweet bassinet with dreamy creamy fabrics to rifle through while crafting. Have a happy day!

Julie said...

Good morning, Dawn! Love all your new finds--fabulous stuff! I don't think I could part with any of it! Thanks for finding new creative bloggers for us to meet!

Have a beautiful day!

Good Morning Dawn Sweetie...
As always I so love to come and visit with you and see what you are up to. Thank you for the share of the print. I so love the Eiffel Tower, and I am going to use it on something for sure. Thank you.

Love your cloche. Love the look of dictionaries too. DH and I still have ours from when we were in school. Outdated but so loved.

I am also going to go and see about the new friends you have shared. It is so wonderful to meet new friends too.

Have a beautiful day sweetie. You are always so creative and so sharing of your knowledge. Thank you for that.

Country hugs and much love...Sherry

Thank you Dawn a great post

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love the Eiffel Tower print, Dawn! I have a frame that needs a print, too, so maybe this will work. Love the books ~ dictionaries or any kind. I just love looking at well-loved and time-worn books.

Jamie said...

Oh I just love this post. I always read the blogs while I have my coffee in the morning. This is perfect! I have put "cloche" on my look for list. I just love the way yours looks on that tray, and oh all those other pretties!
Such talented artists you've shared!

And OH my, that last picture, I see six things I want in just first glance...I am afraid to look closer!

Belle Brocante said...

I love the Eifeltower too! I saved him next to your other lovely images ;-)

Thanks with a kiss on your cheek,
Annemiek

Dawn,
Love all the yumminess for the shop, glad it's too far away for me cuz I would spend all my money. What is that hanging from the bassinet, an art quilting project or something?? Looks like something VERY cool to me. Thanks for the heads up on new blogs. Lisa

Dorthe said...

Hi sweetie,

love all your great finds, and especially the bassinet, it is a little gem, I would never let go of that, if I had been the lucky finder of it. I have also collected lots of silver trayes for the last years, to use for closhes and for flowerpots, looks so great....

Have a wonderfull thursday afternoon and evening dear friend, thanks for inviting me into your beautifull world.
Hugs and love Dorthe

WOW Dawn! That was a great post - more, I say more!!! I am loving the new sites you've shown us! There sure is a lot of great talent out there!

And of course I love your new finds! Love the basinette. I have one that became Zoe's bed - she refused to let me give it up lol (BTW Zoe is a cat).

So the question becomes.....how is your new space coming along????? When do we get to see some pictures?!?!

I hope you had a great day!

Deborah, mom of Romeo

Hi Dawn, thanks so much for sharing the Eiffel tower with us, I already saved it for future projects!! I'll bet your space will be wonderful--just like your blog! I know what it's like to wanna keep what you find-I guess we wouldn't buy it if we didn't like it. Thanks for leading us to the new blogs and also thanks for your kind comments on mine, I appreciate it! Love Julie

Each morning your blog is like a breath of fresh air for me. A beautiful way to start my days, with calm thoughts and lovely images. Thank you!

Lori @ Raspberries and Rose Petals said...

Dawn, your posts are NEVER too long! Love to pour over them and I revisit them often!

I don't know that I would be able to have a booth ~ I'd want to keep it ALL!!! I especially love the broken iron piece! I don't know what it is about painted and worn iron....I can't get enough!

Have a wonderful Friday!
Lori
