Little Blue Bird, A Pillow and my Love of Little Plates and Old Buttons.......
I have been busy making
a "Mug Mat" this week.
I entered a swap over
at Donna's Blog!
Please click onto
the picture on my side
bar for more info!!
There is still time to
join this great swap
which is open till
As a few of you might know
I love to draw and paint.
I made this little Blue
bird with Oil Pastels
and pencil. I would
like to make a series
of birds for a nature
journal this year.
I will post a different
bird as I go along
throughout the year
to show you my progress.
I am self taught and not
an expert by any means.
I just love doing it thats all.
I also wanted to share
this darling little pillow
with you...(which I did
not make). I found it
at my favorite Antique Mall
and think it is just so adorable!!
Don't you? The key is vintage
as well as the fabrics.
One of my obsessions is collecting
small plates, saucers, etc. I found these
lovely little plates last weekend. The
one with the raised blue flowers is
rather hefty in weight and is felted
on the bottom, it is meant to hold
your jewelry so pretty and both
were only a dollar!!
I also bought the sweet red flower buttons
and a bag of vintage white buttons as well.
What little things do you like to
buy that you can't resist at the
antique shops? Write and tell
Blessings for a Lovely
Love to All,

Hello Dear Friends....
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
beautiful flowers, and lush landscapes so pleasing to our soul.
A rebirth of a…
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.
I know I have been absent from my Blog..forever!!
I am on FB most of the time now. It is easier
to keep up with my grand kids and friends from there
I am still going through health issues quite a bit. Mostly
lots of pain to deal with. I find I can't do things for any length
of time, before I get to exhausted.
I will still come by here to blog every now and then and try to visit
you, when I can. I miss all or you...who know maybe I will be back
more full time at some point in time.
I thought I would share one of my newest creations with you.
I call it "An Ocean Adventure"!!
I hope all of you are doing well and happy.
If you want to
see what new with me, just visit me here on my FB page!!
