Cherish each moment ~

A few little thought books for Cheryl of Zany Mayd and her sweet niece
who is expecting her sixth child!
And after having five boys,
we are SUCH kindred spirits.....

We're meeting at 10:00 this morning at Scott's Antique Market to go junkin'!!!!

I'm loving this thing ~

So I can make these ~

I sprayed an old dictionary page with Elmer's spray glue (walmart) and
stuck it to 67lb cover stock and used the punch!
Then of course I had to age them a bit....
And why does everything have to look so old and tattered?
I don't know...I just love it!

You have GOT to go visit Mitzi!!!
She has created the most precious flowers ever
inspired by the new Flea Market Style magazine.....

Wishing you a wonderful Friday precious friends,
hugs and love,

Oh sweet, you are late up, again,Dawn.
I just finished my morning tea!!!
I love the small note books, you made for the mother, and grand aunt?
And I LOVE your tags, must try to find such a multi tag thing here,- And how would your tags have been looking if all bright white,-well I think borring, and not at all beautifull like this ones.
Sleep well, and have a wonderfull friday junking...wish I could be there with you, sweet friend.
Love and hugs ,Dorthe

I have that punch too... I use 110 lb. cardstock and usually just stamp them - I love yours!!I have such a "thing" about price tags... I think there is alittle "kindred" there too! (I sponge coffee on my paper - dry it in the microwave for 25 seconds...iron it and then punch) XO, Judy

That looks like a great tool to have, but where do you get it, sugar? I just might try it.

I saw that one yesterday at Michael's. I actually walked out of the store without buying anything. That is so sad. But I did buy 4 lampshades to remodel at the Goodwill for 99 cents each. Have fun at Scott's. Cindy was there yesterday and I think Wendy is there today.

Dear Dawn,

I love the tags! There is just something about the vintage look that calls me...actually it screams out my name!

Mr. B says that if it's old, weatherbeaten, flawed or defined by others as hopeless...I love it! So true...

Hope you have fun today!


Coleen said...

Heart Hugs,

Your tags are soooooo good!
What technique did you use? If it improves on mine, spill it, I need to know! ;-)

You are just the coolest, Dawn!
