A few glimpses of the studio to make you smile!

I don't even know what to say about all that is going on right now.
I can only say, stay home...stay safe and pray for this to please pass precious friends.

I was up in the studio yesterday cleaning up, putting things away and
thought that I'd take a few close-ups of vignettes to make you smile.

And yes, I do need to get busy making something pretty...
it always makes me happy and distracts me too!
I've been in a funk for waaaay too long it seems.

First, a print I scanned years ago that I love!
Right click it, save it and print it out.
You can print it to frame or even make some sweet cards!

A jar of rhinestone jewelry and bling!

The last bloom from our hydrangea bush at the farmhouse.
It brings me sweet memories you know.
It's not finished but will be soon.

Old photographs recently given to me by my sweet cousin Sherry.


More pretty stuff...

My very favorite jar filled with vintage buttons!

A few of my very favorite things. Gifts from friends, artwork from others and
my favorite photograph of my sweet grandmother.

A paper clay bird I made for my tutorial in the Etsy shop and the most
gorgeous handmade nest from a blog friend Vicki Boster.

Another dried hydrangea bloom resting in an antique aquarium with a bird's nest.
And yes, those are real eggs that never hatched!

One of my first little pincushion baby shoes that was published.

Treasures pinned to a dress form.

She is waiting for her modeling job when I finish those hair bands in the background.
Get busy Dawn and stop stressing...

Some fabulous bark that Tammy and James brought back from a mountain trip.
It definitely needs to be used!

More artwork from friends that I adore!

The sweet little retro blue tooth speaker
that Brent and his family gave me for my birthday and
a few more treasures and supplies.

I just wanted to bring a little sweetness to your day.
Please stay safe, stay home and of course stay clean.
I love you all!!!

Thank you for visiting me always,
hugs and love,

A thankful heart ~

Last week my sweet cousin tagged me in a link.
It was an estate sale for an eclectic artist.
I went to the link and there were 200 photographs!!!
I may have foamed at the mouth a little bit because
she loved all that I love!

My cousin lived VERY close to the estate sale and said she may go.
I asked her if you find anything at all that you think I'll love, get it...
I'll send you the money!

Well, she went.
And ohmyland...what she bought for me is WONDERFUL!!!
I asked her what do I owe you hon?
(thank goodness it was 50% off day on Sunday)
Sherry told me's all a gift from me.


Thank you so much precious Sherry!!! I love it all so much!
I'll let the photos speak for themselves....
gosh, I've got to get back to creating.

Such sweet, precious treasures!
Some I will keep in honor of the sweet artist who passed.
I want to honor her taste, her love of old and her artistry.

You know I had to share though!
Wishing you a beautiful spring and
thank you always for visiting me!!!

Hugs and love,
