Snippets of inspiration ~






I love sharing tidbits that just might inspire you...
so I've been looking through my computer files
to see what I think you may love.

Take a little look ~ and I do hope something will trigger your creativity!!!


First up...precious succulent gardens created inside glass jars...
aren't they beautiful?




And you and I both love antique baby photos....right?
Look at this angel ~




This one looks like two sweet sisters.
How funny that the oldest looks so confident and
the little one is just a bit unsure.



One of my favorite prints ever...



An old piece of artwork I created inside of an old wooden "in box"



One more piece that I created inside of a broken clock.
The clock itself was so beautiful...it needed a new life!




A sweet display in my last studio.




Artwork I made several years ago just using an 11" x 14" canvas
and a page from an antique photo album,
pages from a botanical book and dried flowers.



The smallest banner that I've ever made using round tags,
antique ledger paper, embossed napkins, snippets of old lace,
rusty bells and words that I printed out on my computer
and of course,
beautiful vintage buttons and seam binding!





And lastly ~
To inspire your longing for spring...a beautiful fern!!!




Happy Thursday my dear friends!!!!

Hugs and love,
Dawn

Because I know you love what I love...



I have to share this goodness with you!!!
A dear family member of ours has been doing a little purging
and gifted me some of the MOST. GORGEOUS. LACE. EVER!!!

She's given me some lace before as her brother and his wife
used to make heirloom Christening gowns.
She inherited the lace and has now passed it on to me!!!
I feel so honored and also am totally inspired
to create beautiful things with it!

Please just take a peek at this sweet basket full...
Also, I wanted to share with you
what I do to my baby shoes
when creating little baby shoe pincushions.

when the shoes are really scuffed and quite worn,
I like to give them a coat of matte or flat paint
to give them a fresh look!!

Believe it or not, I had purchased a Benjamin Moore color sample
a few years ago, in Manchester Tan, and have been using it!!!
It's such a pale, neutral khaki and looks so beautiful on the shoes.
Who knew?
Using house paint to refresh tiny baby shoes!!













I finally feel like I'm getting back into my groove...
and I'm also kinda glad that I've been procrastinating on making a few
more memory organizers because NOW I have a great new
supply of lace to choose from!!!!


Happy Tuesday precious friends ~
hugs and love,
Dawn

Beautiful ferns ~



I just love them!
I found a few prints at the thrift and scanned them in for you ~
they're not the best scans in the world but maybe you can
use them in some way?
Click to enlarge to the largest size and save to your own computer.

They so remind me of spring!












Happy weekend angels!
hugs and love,
Dawn

Sharing wishes of Spring!



It's been a terribly cold winter here in Georgia and
it seems I can't stop thinking of longer, warmer days to come.

So I thought I would post a few pretty images of Spring to cheer us all up!


























I so hope you are cozy and warm on this February day...
Spring is coming, I promise!!!


hugs and love,
Dawn

Where has the time gone sweet friends?








I just realized something.
Tomorrow,
Wednesday, February 11th, 2015
I have been blogging for
EIGHT YEARS!!!

AMAZING...AMAZING!!!

My first blog post was on February 11th, 2007.
I share one little photo of our bedroom...
I was so proud of it!
Here it is:



Can I just tell you how wonderful it's been?
I have "met" so many precious friends
through this little blog.
Friends who've been with me through this entire journey even!

I've shared so many projects, things I've made and ideas as well.
Thank you so much for being there for me!!!

Thank you for visiting and cheering me on ~
I've been little lazy lately and haven't posted very frequently
but really do plan on getting back in the groove!
I already feel that 2015 is going to be a wonderful year
filled with goodness and promise.

I found a few Valentine's Day images to share!






I have a few projects in the making.
I'm working on a couple of treasure organizers!
One is a special order for a baby nursery and the other
will be up for sale in my Etsy shop when it's finished.

I still haven't gotten around to those needle books though!
I need make a tutorial for those because they make
such sweet little gifts...

Thank you again for visiting me here,
always for your kind comments
and for caring about what I'm up to!!

Happy Tuesday precious friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn
