well wishes for my Mom.

the little girl transfer
onto some silk fabric,
which worked out well.
I then made a little quilt
sandwich with some
batting and thin cotton
for the backing.
I then sewed all the way
around and also added
some ruched pink
ribbon around the border.
I then attached the
little puffy picture bundle
to a pink satin background.

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.

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. Played dolls with her friend Norma...wished she had a Patsy Doll, (which I bought for her last year actually) visited her Aunt Millie every year in Connectifut in the summer. When she was older worked in New York City took two buses and two subways everyday into NYC. She would eat at the Automat, Danced at the USO dances with the young men before they went overseas...loved to jitterbug and collected all the Tomey Dorsey records, Glenn Miller, Harry James...She still sings all the old songs although her hearing is not very good anymore...she walks with a walker these days....still loves chocolate...still tells the same jokes I have heard all my life....and the same stories...but I would have it no other way...She is my mother, my friend, and she raised me well and I am proud to give her my love and r…
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!!
