so deeply by all of us.

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

Image
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
endeavors!!


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 …

Happy Friday To All!!                             


I want to share with all
of you a very special
Giveaway that my
friend Jan had posted
on her blog recently.

Jan makes wonderful
beaded creations and lately
she started making Beaded
Heart Pins...that are just
exquisite!!!
Jan also makes beautiful
quilts and smaller Art
quilts with beading and
with unique stitches, fabrics
and charms.
Her work is unique, interesting
and beautiful.
I encourage you to visit Jan's
Blog at Laughingdogarts.blog
spot.com.
You will hear woodland
sounds as you take a stroll though
her posts and come away feeling
refreshed and renewed in spirit
and soul.

I thank you my Special Friend
Jan for making this very special
heart just for me...(I was able to tell
Jan what color beads and a charm
that I would like.) I picked the
Moon and Stars charm in honor
of my Granddaughter Halle that
passed away two years ago
on November 14th 2008.


I Love All of You and Praise
The Lord for giving me such
Wonderful Friends h…

"Some Sweet Christmas Lovelies"

Image
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

Image
Happy Friday Dear Friends,


I want to share something I purchased from my friend Vicki from.... http://vicki-2bagsfull.blogspot.com/

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
rehabilitation.

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.

Christmas Fabric B…
