Sweet baby ~

A short and sweet post today....
I scanned in this little girl for you!
Maybe you can use her in your artwork?
Remember to scroll down to the bottom of my posts
to read about how to save these pics in the largest format ~

She looks like she might just have a little bit of an attitude, don't you think?

My mom and dad are arriving today to stay the weekend with us...
we are having a family reunion Saturday!
I'm looking forward to seeing sweet cousins, aunts and uncles
that I haven't seen in awhile ~
So...I'm fluffing the guest room and cleaning a bit to get ready!

Have a beautiful Thursday precious friends,
hugs and love,

Back in the studio ~

I finally made a little something!
Lisa gave me this wonderful cloche
with a wooden base for my birthday last year...
It had some weird little wooden Santa made of blocks and beads inside.
Well, I tossed his behind out and cleaned the glass and base up.
She knew I would love to make something with it!!

Now it houses the sweetest antique photo of a little girl
holding her favorite teddy bear ~
I've added a bundle of millinery flowers tied with seam binding...
and trimmed the base with beautiful ribbons!

She's now listed in my Etsy store....

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday dear friends!
hugs and love,

Good stuff to share! other boxes arrived from Texas!
I had to ship back my remaining kits and a few more treasures I found ~
One held this little angel.
I couldn't resist her!
For ten bucks, she needed to be loved....
so I've already found her a sweet dress and she's standing guard now
in The Feathered Nest studio!!

And I've received a bit of mail love I would love to share with you ~
This parcel arrived from the great state of KANSAS!
Beth and Karla sent me a few treasures that I just adore...

And can I just take a moment to tell you how absolutely wonderful it was
to meet these two precious girls!!
They are just as amazing as you would imagine them to be ~
Fun, creative and oh-so-real and down-to-earth.....just what I love!
Here's their goodies to me, all bundled up:

Beth told me about this mold she had and thought it would make a great soap!

Look at Karla's's wrapped in more gifts!

Gorgeous goodies from Beth!

Karla sent me frozen Charlottes! I've never even owned one ~ they are beautiful to me...
maybe I should use them in some artwork? Ummm, we'll see :)

She knew I loved tiny white millinery too...

Just look at the gorgeous linens Beth gifted me!!!
Perfect corners for my needle books....just beautiful ~

And teeny, tiny buttons, another weakness of mine ~
and look at Beth's handmade tags...I love it all!

Here you go Beth!!!
My son, Brent, made a soap from the mold ~
What do you think?
Kinda Kewpie-ish?????
Maybe sweet for a baby shower?
You tell me :)
I gotta tell you, I'm loving that belly!

PLUS...I won a giveaway from Abby of Little Birdie Blessings ~
A beautiful book about sewing with vintage linens ~ it's wonderful!
Thank you so much sweet Abby, now I need to get busy, don't I??!

My dear friend Marie of Spun by Me had a giveaway for this issue of Romantic Homes!
And  I won!
Thank you so much Marie, I love it!!!

And here's the last bit of treasures I found in Texas ~
A gorgeous old hat, an teeny brown bottle,
a great drawer pull and an old rusty cork screw!

My sweet girl says, thanks for stopping by today to see all the good stuff!!!

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

A very happy weekend!

It all started with a day of shopping for one special little girl
that turned THREE this past Friday!!!
Can you even believe that Clara is three years old???
We ended up finding a few goodies for her party that we
had here at the house Sunday afternoon and
of course we had to buy a few things she
could play with right away too ;)

One was a princess kite and we were lucky,
it was quite windy all weekend long!

She took to flying the kite right away!

By the look on her face, it was serious business....

I think she loved it though!

Clara's birthday party turned out just wonderful!!
Here are a few snapshots I wanted to share with you....

She loves playing outside so much, her mama and daddy gave her
a bunch of outdoor toys...

Such a happy girl!!

Whew!!! Parties can wear you out!

And her dad decorated the cake!!!

Sneaking a taste of frosting!

Clara and Uncle Dave watching Uncle Brad fly the kite...
(I don't know where the kite is though)

A sassy look!

Can you tell this child is loved??
She had a wonderful time....
I just had to share it all with you ~

Wishing you a great Monday dear friends,
hugs and love,
