A little something pretty and a new addition to the family!

I recently found these beautiful old images or rather paintings
that I knew you would love!
They each have a wonderful ethereal look to them.

So far we've had a pretty quiet summer around here.
We did have a family reunion last month and I snapped this photo
of our precious grandbabies Clara and Murray!
I just love these angels.

I've made a little bit of handmade soap for a few birthday parties...

And have even been getting back to printing on fabric!
There's definitely a trick to it, getting the paper to feed into the printer correctly
and avoiding paper jams but the results are always worth the work.
I created several lavender sachets for a local French restaurant that has
a sweet shop attached. She really liked them!

I also have a few that are listed in my Etsy store if you'd like to take a peek!
Filled with approximately 1 full cup of fresh lavender buds and adorned with
a little bundle of seam binding and a vintage button of course!

Another little tidbit of news from our farmhouse...
Our pair of diamond doves have a sweet baby!!!
Born just a few days ago.
We will see if it's sibling hatches too,
it was laid a few days after the first.
Neat, huh???

Thank you always for stopping by to see me!
I hope you are doing so very good ~

hugs and love,

Hello Dearest Dawn,
Thank you for sharing these charming paintings with us, you are such a kind and generous angel. Clare and Murray are as adorable as ever, it's amazing how quickly time passes, I remember so clearly, the excitement we both felt when you told me of their imminent arrivals. Even more of a gift for you is that they live sooooo close by. You have been such a busy bee making your gorgeous lavender bags, I imagine that they smell as beautiful as they look. Take care keep well and in touch my sweetest Dawn.
