Sometimes the ol' bird flies from the nest!

I've blogged for almost four years now....
and I've met so, so many precious friends through this lil' blog ~
I've been able to meet several of these friends in person too!!

Well, in 9 days this bird is boarding an airplane (YIKES!)
and flying to Texas to spend the weekend
with Ms Lisa of Tarnished and Tattered!!!!!

And what are we going to do?
We are heading to Ann of The Tin Rabbit's sweet Christmas Open House!!
Ann is such an amazing artist...
using all of the elements Lisa and I both love ~
Raggedy old lace and trims, beautiful old cabinet cards
and any other vintage cast offs she can muster up....
But more than anything, she has a wonderful heart.
I just can't wait to meet her!

Here's just a sampling of her wonderful artwork and vignettes ~

Sooooo. I'm just a little nervous.
Yes, I admit it.
This bird doesn't fly the coop too much you know....

I do promise to take plenty of photos to share with you!!!
Have a great Wednesday dear friends ~
hugs and love,

Have a safe trip, Dawn. I KNOW you'll have a ball with "the girls". Please give Lisa a hug for me, and be sure to keep one for yourself. Can't wait to hear all about your adventure!

You two are going to have SO much fun. Secretly I hope y'all get lost and end up here in Louisiana!
(a friend can wish, right?)

I know what you mean, Dawn- I'm always a little bit nervous about leaving home- but if you're going to fly the nest- Lisa is a great bird to be with. You guys are going to have so much fun- can't wait to hear about it and see the pictures.

I just met Lisa recently, she's wonderful. You'll have a great time here in our beloved state. And, the weather is behaving for a change so you'll really get to enjoy it! If you can squeeze it in, visit the Lonestar Antique Mall. You'll love it!

Be safe and welcome to the Lonestar State!

I cannot even imagine getting to fly to another state to see one of our great blogger friends. I love Lisa's work too.
And getting to visit the Tim Rabbit too? Well, heavenly.
Have soooo much fun, and yes, bring back pictures.

So excited for you! All three of you make such beautiful creations. There are definitely some common themes in your work and lives. I bet it will be a weekend to remember. Safe travels.

Oh I love that work..."Not gone, just gone ahead." I'm going to have to do something with that phrase. A trip to a friend's and a Christmas open house is just the diversion you need, my friend. I'm delighted for you and besides, you're taking all of us, too, right?

Tina said...

Wishing you a wonderful day sweetie
xoxo Tina
