My favorite gift from
my hubby is my

type that I can adjust
it to.

Our cat Sam had his Christmas present early, he had a spa day this past week. The pet mobile came to our home so Sam had his hair cut the Lion cut style and his nails trimmed. He loves getting his little hair cut a lot! He runs around alot more when he doesn't have 5 Lbs. of hair hanging on him!!

The Blissful ATC Swap For November.....Come and Look!!

Hello Dear Bloggy Friends!!                                 

Happy Monday to All!!

Today I would like to share with you first a very lovely ATC made by my swap buddy Peggy. Peggy and I were randomly picked as swap buddies over at The Blissful ATC Swap Blog.

Peggy handpainted this lovely ATC and then whipstitched around the laminated edge. this is only her third ATC and I think she is so very creative and look forward to see what she will make in the future!
Peggy also included some lovely lace, and a beautiful beaded and sequined disk...this is really unique and beautiful.
The next item she hand painted Roses
onto some River Birch Bark. The
River Birch stands in Peggy's front
yard and she uses the bark in her
art work....isn't that the coolest
thing?? Peggy even gave me a
few strips for my own creative

This last ATC was made by me to trade with Peggy. I named it "Journey" for my love of travel.
Hope you all have enjoyed the pictures and I wish you all a lovely day!!
With Love …

"Some Sweet Christmas Lovelies"

Hello Everybody!

Hope your  enjoying
Your Wednesday!!

Over this past weekend my
husband and I visited one
of my favorite Antique
Markets. I had been there
with some of my blogging
buddies a couple of weekends
ago but had to go back because
there is always something new
and exciting there.
My husband likes to look
around as well....that is
a real plus ladies when
your hubby can stay in
one store for as long as
you do!! I know I am
very lucky!!!

So here are some
sweet little things I picked
up...I think the cute little
bird wrapped in sheet music
is adorable...don't you??

The beautiful Post Card
was edged in German
glitter. It can be hung
on the Christmas tree
or really anywhere.

The little Christmas
house I found there when
me and my blogging buddies
were there.

Hope you enjoyed
the pre-Christmas goodies!!!
Love and A Million Hugs!!

A Beautiful Shore Bird Nest

Happy Friday Dear Friends,

I want to share something I purchased from my friend Vicki from....

I few weeks ago Vicki finished a project she was working on
featuring her beautifull Shore
Bird Nests that she lovingly
made. Vicki lovingly by hand
made each one, which took her
a few months to make. Two
of the nests were very special
because she was donating the
proceeds to the Suncoast
Seabird Sanctuary in Florida,
this is the largest Shorebird
Hospital in the USA and
receives 8000 admissions
a year for treatment and

I was one of the lucky ones
who was able to purchase
one of the two shorebird
nests whose proceeds go
to a much needed cause.

I have taken a few pictures
of which they don't do justice
to the breathtakingly loving
work the Vicki has done.

Please go visit Vicki's site
and stroll through this very
lovely lady's blog. You will
be glad you did...she is one
of the most loving and caring
people that you have ever met.

God …

Hello Dear Friends,

You all must have thought I
dropped off the radar....well

would be nice. I painted the whole thing inside and out and added some
vintage Angel music as well around the sides inside and out.
 Inside the box were a couple of things I made. I made an adorable little
Christmas Fabric B…
