Just random stuff I love ~
(besides my sweet family & friends)

Making art ~

Neat old stuff ~

Ditto ~

Double ditto ~

Wonderful old botanical prints ~

Of course birds, nests and eggs ~

Adorable children's illustrations ~

Beautiful old handwriting ~

Sepia-toned prints ~

Button jewelry ~ no, I don't have any but love to drool....this necklace is from Grandmother's Buttons ~

Today I went shopping for a few new things to wear to the Girl's Weekend at Tammy's house in a few weeks!! I can't EVEN believe that I'm going to get to teach a class! I'm so looking forward to meeting everyone.

Thank you so much for such sweet comments about the mini banner! It was one of those little projects that just took on a life of it's own and then I was all excited about the way it turned out ~

I hope you have a wonderful Thursday dear friends ~ and yes, you are dear friends to me!
xxoo, Dawn

Oh my goodness, Dawn... I had to look twice at the ornate signature up there!

I have a dear friend whose name is Fran Lindquist, and that swirling script looked for all the world like it said 'Fran' instead of 'Evan'! How amazing...such beautiful images you've shared!

Wishing you and your family a lovely Easter , and hope you are all well dear?

I loved drooling over your special collections throughout your studio with my coffee this morning. I think our special items make our studios that special haven for each of us. I also love that Classic Pooh stand - never could part with that. :) Have a Happy Easter!

I love the same stuff- your pictures make me want to call in sick to work and run to my craft room to create!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Find myself grinning my way through one of your the way you artfully gather your beautiful things.

I think that you'd be an amazing teacher (because you already are) and wouldn't it be great to have some video lessons to sell? ;D

I love all the pretty things you shared... especially the sepia print of Mother & Daughter. I have an old print of that one, in a very chipped up old frame that I love. It was a gift from my mom. It's one of my dearest treasures.
