OK....don't faint ~

I actually made something!!!
In my studio!!! It's been waaaaay too long ~

I fell in love with an amazing antique moth print
that Karen of The Graphics Fairy
so graciously gifted her readers
and knew I would have to make something with it!

Here's my antique moth collage....
available in my shoppe too!

It feels so good to make something!!!

Snippets of Inspiration ~

I know you must save ideas from magazines.
Of course, there are some that I won't cut up but for the most part
I do clip and save my most favorite ideas and file them away
in plastic sleeves in a binder.

I've shared several on my blog before
but these are a few that I don't think I have :)
But of course, I'm not sure!!!

Here's an easy way to age a PLASTIC pot for your spring plantings....
click all photos to enlarge!

I had to doctor this photo up a bit as the top of the slipcover
was totally washed out because of the photo's brightness...
but don't you just love this idea??
These slips would be SUPER fast to toss in the wash and tie back on!
Please don't laugh at my lousy Photoshop
attempt to make the slipcover show better...

I absolutely LOVE everything about this photo below...
and Rose, is this ANOTHER pitcher that matches our pattern??
The brown transferware is just gorgeous to me....

A little bird for you two ways....jpg:

And here he is in a png format!

And I want to share with you a most wonderful quote
I found on Tracey's blog...Notes from A Cottage Industry:

How far you go in life depends on
your being tender with the young,
compassionate with the aged,
sympathetic with the striving
and tolerant of the weak and the strong.
Because someday in life
you will have been all of these.

~ George Washington Carver ~

Wishing you an GREAT Monday precious friends!!!!

Our sweet Clara ~

You are not going to believe this dear friends.....
Our little Clara had a 101 degree temperature for her birthday party!!!
We didn't have a clue why, the tubes should help her ears but she
was struggling to swallow and I can only guess
that maybe it was strep throat....
Brent and Emily took her to the Urgent Care today and they
still can't pinpoint what it is ~ but did give her an antibiotic shot....


She was such an angel....even with a fever!
Not one whimper and no crying at all...
I have to share a few photos because
that's just what I do!!!

All of the decorations came from Hobby Lobby's half-off Easter sale!!!
And what's so neat is that they can all be used
in her pretty bedroom after the party ~

We love our sweet baby!!!!

hugs and love,

Wonderful new finds....and such a nice surprise!

I found this AMAZING big bowl this past weekend....
I'm in love with it.
Can I love a bowl?
Why, yes, I think I can.
It's one of those large bowls that used to have a pitcher
inside to use on a washstand....

Incredible wall art....I love architecture!

The most gorgeous Last Supper print ~

A bag of busted jewelry....
I threw away half of it because it was junky new stuff.
This is the yummy stuff I saved.
You can click on the photo to enlarge....

These precious tiny jars with lids.

Can I keep my broken jewelry in one so I can stare at it??

I've bought three different colors of seam binding...
these are the names of the colors ~
And I did check, the medium beige is Bark Tan!

This was my wonderful surprise in the mail....
The upcoming Spring issue of
Somerset Life has my altered Pop-Tart box featured!!!
I didn't write the article on this one
but did tell how I created it and
they incorporated the instructions into the article.
It will be coming out April 1st!!!!
This issue, just like all the others, is breathtaking and a MUST HAVE...

My little ol' box ~

The next three photos are mine that I took right before I mailed it off ~

A few more snippets from the issue to entice you a little bit!
