What's New

I have been busy working on lots of projects! This is a quick little post ! I have a burlap covered Bottle with a soldered charm dangle , the burlap has been stamped with some text and a Flur de Lis design, the "lid" is an old vintage glass knob! Just a little perfect natural accessory !

Photo above is of a little collage I created using a vintage style postcard, vintage key and a handcrafted resin "charm" of a sweet little girl !
These will be in my Etsy shop The Little Things and Lollishop !

Spring Eggs

Yesterday I was so inspired by Cottage Charm and Family Inspiration' s post that I had to create my own little spring eggs ! Their blog is always filled with INSPIRATION , I love checking it out for a dose of creativity !! They were inspired by Anything Goes Here blog , another blog that will get your creativity going !These are my little eggs !

I used old dictionary papers , and tied with some batten burg tape ( I have a lot , as my aunt was one of the few licenced batten burg instructors in the nation .. she taught me , will have to be another post some day ! ) and a little tulle and some vintage florals from a hat that I dis- assembled because it was not in the best condition. I also dusted each egg with Pearl-x to give a little glimmer , it does not show up in the photos though !Happy Spring everyone .... so ready for it !!

Not Lost !!

I am not lost , or gone , or on vacation .... I have been just busy with getting so many projects done !! So it has been awhile since I posted ! I have been working on some more things for The Little Things and SecondTreasures ( I have a lot of great things that Iam re-purposing) ! My daughter & I have also been planting all of our seeds , so hopefully they will all sprout into a lush little garden of fabulous veggies !! This is a terrarium I have sitting on my table ( a very small portion of our seeds we have planted )

I also re-purposed a wonderful little find from the thrift store , a little wood storage unit ...was begging to get repainted and used ! I painted it white and spray painted the metal part black ! I am loving it because it has a somewhat well loved appeal !

And I also will share a wonderful find at the thrift store ... this organizer ...just sitting there and also wanting to come home , for $4.00 it was a great little find ! I don't know about you but I can always use any kind of organizing !!Love it because it can actually hold a lot of stuff in one area! Well I am off to finish working on my taxes , yes , I probably am one of the last that wait , but I would rather be creating than doing taxes !! Have a wonderful & blessed day !!

Waiting for Spring

I saw this "Pot Maker" in one of Better Homes and Gardens publications , so I found one online and yesterday my daughter & I started creating our own little pots to start our seedlings in !!
You use old newspapers and roll them up basically !! So I think it is a great way to recycle also !!

We will start our little planting shortly , living in a colder climate , our growing season is shorter so it is nice to get a head start on some plants. I know many of you have already started on your gardens ..... how fun !! I still have a giant pile of snow that is going to have to melt ! So happy that it has started to melt already!!

We bought all organic seeds for our garden . My daughter is going to be the seed savor , a job all in it's own !!
