More good stuff to make you drool ~

While I was digging in the inspiration vault the other night....
I found even more pages I just have to share with you!!
I've not been very creative this week and really need a swift kick,
I think it all boils down to the amount of sleep I'm getting
or maybe NOT getting...oh well, enough about that ~
These pics are from the ME Home Companion,
Country Living and I'm not sure....
Just take a gander:

Remember to click to enlarge then click AGAIN for them to be BIG!

I'm so loving this workspace....and the gorgeous signs he creates!

Love this ~

Don't you love the hat collection on the wall?
And what about the towels in the canvas shoe organizer??

I hope you love these pages as much as I do...
It doesn't take much to make me smile :)

Timeless style....that takes my breath away ~

I always return to things I love.
I just can't help it....

I was talking to Lisa the other day and she told me
that she wanted to do a Rose Hicks post....
we couldn't stop talking about the amazing style she has!!
And of course, all of her daughters are blessed with
a design style that is unmatched, just like their mom.
Lisa has featured Rose's home on her latest post....
and I found a few pages that feature her daughters style ~

These wonderful pages have been in my inspiration stash for many years...
and they are all just as gorgeous now as the day they were published.

You can click on these photos to enlarge,
then click them again for the full page size.

Janet Proch's home....

A gorgeous space Carol Hicks Bolton designed.....

More of Janet's home....

A feature about Homestead,
a store that Carol formerly owned in Fredricksburg, TX gorgeous!

These amazing women listen to their heart and design with what they love.
With all of this wonderful talent, wouldn't it be so neat
if they had a book of their own??!!

A girl can dream can't she??

I hope you have a wonderful Thursday dear friends....
hugs and love,

A tired granny and doll clothes ~

A few images for you ~

 So what have I been up to?

Ripping apart a few watches....and poking a hole in my thumb with the
tiniest screwdriver ever! It is so hard to get the backs off watches!

I have a fascination with doll clothes...simple, little slips and dresses ~
I found a pattern the other day at hob lob
(Simplicity patterns are only .99 this week!)
It is a reprint of an old doll clothes pattern too!
Well, I was really interested in the little slip that was in the pattern.

I ended up using flour sack fabric...


So, I whipped one up!!
I had to soak it in instant coffee to give it a little character,
sprinkle a few crushed grounds over top...
and now I have this precious little thing ~
What am I going to do with it?
I don't have a clue,
but isn't it precious?

 ~ A few giveaways I found ~

Shelley of Sweet Pea Home is having a giveaway HERE!!

Andrea of Vintage Bella Studio is having a giveaway too, just click HERE!!!

And I'd love to introduce you to a new blogger!!!
Leanne of Provoking Beauty has just started her blog
and if you have time, it would be so wonderful if
you'd pop over to welcome her!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday precious friends ~
hugs and love,
