A few artful goodies have been added to my shop!

 

Well, here it is, almost the end of August!
How did THAT happen?
I'm thankful though. This has been a rough year for all of us.
I've had a hard time, as I'm sure many of you have as well
dealing with all the stuff that's going on.
I'm just praying for each day to get better and better.

On a positive note,
I've actually been making a few things!

I know I shared my needle felted bunny in my last post but
my son gave me this adorable metal nest!
I filled it with straw and made him a cozy spot
to hang out in the studio.
I love it!!!





My dried flowers and nature finds have been calling my name.
So...I decided to create a new nest assemblage! Fancy that!
I used some amazing antique ledger paper that I believe is from 1865
to line this wonderful old box.




The nest was found in my front door wreath and was
the perfect centerpiece for the artwork!
Mossy sticks and gathered nature pieces were added to complete it.
I also embellished the nest with feathers and speckled eggs.
All of the items have been securely glued in so they can't shift too!








This assemblage is currently in my Etsy store, just click below to visit sweet friends ~


Also, I found these wonderful glass tubes that I'm filling with gorgeous dried botanicals!
They are different sizes and so much fun to make.
I love going through my drieds deciding which pieces to add to each tube.
I plan on making more but a few are listed in my Etsy store if you like to take a look!








Some of these pieces have sold but there are still a few in my store!!

Thank you always, always for stopping by dear friends.
Praying that you are doing wonderfully and are well!


Hugs and love,
Dawn

Getting by in this crazy world ~

It's been forever ago that I posted.
I'm so very sorry but this year so far hasn't been my fav.

Well, I just haven't had much to say.
I've been frozen.
I was able to create a LOT of masks for friends and loved ones
and mailed them to them.
My son and MIL helped me pay all of the postage.
ANYWAY....
I don't really want to go into that but praying
one little mask helped.




My sweet sewing girl!!


The beautiful spring sky
Seems no matter what us humans are battling, nature presses on.
I'm so thankful for that!



I finally decided to try my hand at needle felting!
I purchased a pattern and already had all of the supplies.
It is a sleeping bunny and I love that the pattern shared
the scale of the pieces needed so the bunny pieces aren't all out of proportion.
I purchased the pattern from The Wishing Shed on Etsy and loved her instructions!




My finished bunny!!!




Well, I'll end this post here
because I'm trying to learn the new Blogger posting format
and have so failed!!!

Love you all,
Please stay healthy angels...

Hugs and love,
Dawn

A few glimpses of the studio to make you smile!


I don't even know what to say about all that is going on right now.
I can only say, stay home...stay safe and pray for this to please pass precious friends.

I was up in the studio yesterday cleaning up, putting things away and
thought that I'd take a few close-ups of vignettes to make you smile.

And yes, I do need to get busy making something pretty...
it always makes me happy and distracts me too!
I've been in a funk for waaaay too long it seems.

First, a print I scanned years ago that I love!
Right click it, save it and print it out.
You can print it to frame or even make some sweet cards!






A jar of rhinestone jewelry and bling!




The last bloom from our hydrangea bush at the farmhouse.
It brings me sweet memories you know.
It's not finished but will be soon.



Old photographs recently given to me by my sweet cousin Sherry.




Stuff.




More pretty stuff...




My very favorite jar filled with vintage buttons!




A few of my very favorite things. Gifts from friends, artwork from others and
my favorite photograph of my sweet grandmother.



A paper clay bird I made for my tutorial in the Etsy shop and the most
gorgeous handmade nest from a blog friend Vicki Boster.



Another dried hydrangea bloom resting in an antique aquarium with a bird's nest.
And yes, those are real eggs that never hatched!




One of my first little pincushion baby shoes that was published.



Treasures pinned to a dress form.




YES.
She is waiting for her modeling job when I finish those hair bands in the background.
Get busy Dawn and stop stressing...





Some fabulous bark that Tammy and James brought back from a mountain trip.
It definitely needs to be used!



More artwork from friends that I adore!




The sweet little retro blue tooth speaker
that Brent and his family gave me for my birthday and
a few more treasures and supplies.



I just wanted to bring a little sweetness to your day.
Please stay safe, stay home and of course stay clean.
I love you all!!!

Thank you for visiting me always,
hugs and love,
Dawn
