The Love of Journal Making.......and other Tid Bits :)

Hi Sweet Friends,

I just wanted to share a few things
I have been working on for the

I have been making some
journals and could not wait
to show you a couple of my

I have named this journal
"Love of Vivaldi." The composer.
The image I copied onto some ink jet
fabric and layered it upon some lovely
sheet music paper I bought from
The Paper Source! ( I Love that store)!
The tatting around the woman's head
is from an old tattered hankie.
I wanted to create something similar to
the large beautiful Lace collars woman
wore in the Elizabethan era..

This journal is a bit more on the whimsey
side. the paper is again from the Paper Source
shop. This one is so vibrant and fun to look at.

These are more items that will be going into
a friends booth at my favorite Antique Mall!!

The journal in the middle was made for a gentleman.
It is all about travel and old fashioned stamps on the
inside covers.

I thought you would like to see what I
have been up to lately!!

A Cute Potpourri Pod Ornament...

Hi Sweet Friends,

You know the bags of potpourri you can buy
in the stores with all the large pods
and odd wooden pieces....Well
I had an idea!!!!

Why not decorate them for the Holidays!!

This "Pod" for lack of a better word
was from a package of potpourii
I bought last year.   It was already
painted gold and so all I did was take
some moss and evergreen bits from a
New Hampshire Potpourri mix I bought
recently, add a little pine cone, a berry from
a silk floral bouquet, some glitter cause I love
glitter, and last but not least I added this sweet
little gold bird, (that I had stashed away to do
something with...someday!!)
I also made a little hole thru the top to 
pull the ribbon through.


A sweet little ornament to decorate your tree or hang
in front of a window.

Look and see what you may have in your home
that you could recycle into something new and pretty!!

I have some more odd shaped bits from the
potpourri mix and will se…
