So I'm here again!...I may just start blogging once more!!
I wanted to share with you a simple little
collage I made this week.
I used a vintage book cover as my base. I love the dark green base for the collage. The little girl is from Paper Whimsy. Since I wanted to make something to herald in springtime...I decided to use some vintage ephemera that I have collected over the years. I used a vintage book page from some nature pages my friend Tina had sent to me from Denmark. The feather I have the little girl holding is from a friend in British Columbia, from one of her birds, who donates his feathers!! LOL......I also used a wee little nest I was gifted in a swap a couple of years ago. The little metal hanger I though was a cute
way to hang the collage...On the little label it says "Magical"!
Springtime to me is a magical time of year, as nature once again brings forth

This day 90 years ago my Mother was born in The Bronx in New York City.
She grew up on Long Island. She went to school there, played on the side walks with the other children on her block.

Hoping All of you are enjoying 2013
As for me...well I am sick with one
of those horrible Flu like Virus' that are
going around. Sorry to say I don't look
as healthy as I do in this photo I took of
myself on New Years Eve. At
the moment I look like death
warmed over, and feel like it!!
Hoping to get back into my craft room
when I feel better, and start going through
a lot of my stuff and get rid of things I don't
When the fabrics, ribbons,
laces and such are all in their rightful places
my mind can start thinking of new ideas and
then the creative juices can once again flow.
