Pretty flowers, precious shoes . . . and sweet gifts ~

I found this beautiful postcard for you the other day ~
It has such a wonderful look to it . . .

I finished a few things!!
Just a small jar featuring the most precious petite doll shoes ~
Embellished with millinery flowers, old lace and seam binding.
What is it about small things?
They just tug at your heart...

SOLD ~ Thank you so much Rose!!

And remember all the jar lids I found while out junkin'?
I wanted to make these adorable pincushions with them!
These are very similar to the ones offered in this month's Artist Class.
I just used the zinc jar lid for the bottom ~
I need to do a bunch more to go in the antique space!!

And there's nothing better than looking in your mailbox
and seeing a little parcel addressed to you!!!
Look at the gorgeous Valentine and tag that Sharon sent me!!
Thank you so much sweet girl,
I just love them both....they are so beautiful!!!

Well, you are not going to believe this BUT
today we have a SNOW day!!!!
We are actually supposed to get a little snow
here in Georgia!
Well, we'll see :)
I think I should be ashamed to show any pics here
because so many of you are covered up with the stuff!!!!

I hope you have a WONDERFUL Friday my sweet friends!!
hugs and love,

Thank you for your kind comments on my bee skep! Of course you can copy them for your booth.
I have been wanting to visit the shops in Griffin, but haven't had a chance yet.... which mall are you in?
(Yes, the chicken wire is painted with brown paint to darken it, and be careful, it is hard on your hands and wrists--I have overdone it lately and am having lots of pain)
I love all your projects, and since I need to give up wire for awhile, I'd like to try some of your paper techniques if it is ok?

How beautiful! The ballet shoes are perfect - imagine a current or former ballerina lovingly looking at them with bold dreams or sweet memories as your treasure sits on her dressing table...

The pincushion is a natural beauty filled with your sense of just the right textures, tonal qualities and purpose!

Lovin' the Valentines goodies...they simply make me smile.

I love the little pink doll shoes, took me back to little girl days for just a second.

Very pretty post.

Dawn, send some of that energy you have up my way today! I knew I'd PAY for the housecleaning I did yesterday! *sigh* I though having bifocals meant I didn't actually have to SEE the dust! LOL! Not until the sun shines on it! EEEK!
Have a wonderful day!

Lisa said...

Connie said...

How absolutely darling, honey!!!! I'd love a pair like that for my new great granddaughter. Squeeeeealing with delight. She's not here yet but she will be in May and I'm sooooo looking forward to froufrou-ing her up.

Sandy said...


I'd be glad to toss you a few shovels full of show if you want them! I want ours to MELT! I adore snow but not for this long.

The petite ballet shoes are so adorable!

Hope you have a happy weekend!

Hi Dawn, I have been without my computer and now that I have it I am trying to catch up. The pink slippers are precious and the pin cushion, leave to you! Our schools are closed due to SNOW. It is quiet a sight here in East Texas, and it is beautiful!! Have a great day.

Joy Lett said...

Yours is the only blog I visit everday. It gets the creative juices flowing early. I don't know how you do it over and over. My son is in Baltimore with 30+ inches of snow and the boys at home get a school snow day because it might snow today-- too funny.

Your creations are beautiful and what a nice idea for a pincushion. Your received creations are wonderful...the prettiest Valentines I've seen thus far. And do document your snow. That way it can be proven...referenced...remembered.

Dawn, I love the Ballet shoes in the jar just stunning!! Yes we had snow up here in North Ga.too, I took some pictures as well, one I posted on my blog with the Red Cardinals in the trees. We had an Owl sitting in one of the trees in the back yard but he flew away before I could snap a picture of him. what a beautiful morning with the sun shining on the snow!! I think more pictures will be taken we don't see this down here in Georgia that often.
Have a Great weekend you and your family!
