Using my good stuff!


It's hard you know....
using stuff the you love ~ the pretty things you've worked hard to find....
but that's why I buy it, right?

I made something new and used one of the sweet mother of pearl buckles I just found ~
Seems this collage/assemblage looks so pretty next to my last one too.
I must be in this little girl, doll love thing :)

You can find my new artwork in my Etsy shop....
here's a peek:











It's been so terribly rainy here....drizzly and cold ~
I really need some sunshine!!!!
Maybe Tuesday :) I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I hope you're doing so good ~ staying warm and cozy.

I wish you a wonderful Monday dear friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Dawn-What a gorgeous creation...what beautiful work you do! I know..it is always hard to use up something you love isn't it? Kind of like giving a little bit of your love away. xo Diana

Lisa said...

WOW! I love it. I also love that you broke down and used your good stuff! I need to get that brave! But honestly I really just like having stuff. I know I am crazy. But as I am not to hoarder stage yet I am still ok ;) Hope you get some sun!

It's so gorgeous Dawn - I don't think it would look that good without using those little treasures to create such beautiful work.
I am sure there will always be more to find!
Warm wishes,
Suzy

You do good work. The buckle makes it all come together. I do know we all need to use our good stuff - it's one of my rants, if you don't use your good stuff who will? Happy Monday.

Judi said...

So beautiful. You inspire me, not that I could match your talent. But boy would I sure like to try. Thanks for sharing. Judi in Wahoo

How pretty, Dawn! I think of so many people who have trunks filled with these things and there they sit. It would be so much better to have them out and you give such wonderful food for thought. The using the good stuff cuts right across the board in all directions from giving the best of ourselves in relationships to taking good care of our families to not being so stingy with what we have. Generosity of spirit is a beautiful thing...

It's adorable, Dawn, and I love all the different pieces you've used here! I know it's tough using those pieces you just love ~ even if all you're doing is looking at them. It was really a perfect piece for this precious dress!

The reason I hesitate to use my good stuff is I'm afraid my project won't turn out nearly as wonderful as yours~ :-(. This is gorgeous!

Thespoena McLaughlin said...

Awww she's just precious! Love what you did and the "good stuff" isn't going to waste. Sending a few rays of sunshine your way, although I don't think it will help much. The sun is shiny bright today but the wind is blowing hard and it's cold.

Barbara Jean said...

Oh so wonderful,. again......
No end to the beauty you create girl!!

Dearest Dawn, I alwayes love your beautiful collages, and when you uses your little dress treasures they are even more wonderful like this one-and I love the sweet baby in the photoframe,the flower,and belt buckle. A gorgeous collage filled with lovely finds.
Wish you a sunfilled tuesday sweetie- today I am traveling with Mathilde home, to grandpa, and she will stay with us for the whole week :)
