On My Table

I have been busy with creating , or should I call it playing ? Created a collage using dress form die from Tim Holtz, various papers and embellishments later this is what I ended up with !
For some up-coming projects I also made some paper clay "beads" . They have words on them such as HOPE , DREAM , WISH .
Another paper collage , using bird cage die cut from Tim Holtz also.
A little  bird that I created using some adorable text fabric , sitting in a silver stem cup.
Love the little added bling on the cup ( from my vintage jewelry stash ) ! The tags NEST were from the Altered Pages . Well I better get back to my craft table ! Have a wonderful & creative day !
I am linking to very merry vintage style   link party , so stop over and check out all of the love !

Will it Arrive?

Will it arrive ? Spring that is !!  This has been a brutal winter and it seems as though it just goes on and on !! Yesterday was so nice out with snow melting, how wonderful that was ! This AM though , we had "icey" rain  , now turning into snow! Fortunately it is not suppose to last long !  With the weather keeping a lot of folks a little blue , I have been creating some paper flowers , creating my own spring I guess ! Parer flowers that I will use in some projects I am working on ! Love working with paper ! These are some quilled flowers, paper swirls and the fans from a die .
Have a wonderful weekend

Cards & More

      I have been busy creating a lot of cards this past week. Will post some pic's of some of them !
Paris birthday card
I could  get lost in creating cards, my studio is a giant mess from it all !! A little late , but this is one of the Valentines day cards I created. I love flowers , so I guess you will always see a lot of flowers on my cards !

More flowers , added to a vintage wood hanger , holding vintage papers & such ! I have this listed in my Etsy shop
Notice the sweetest ever little hand  crochet bag , actually my mom made that quite a few years ago when I had her make up  a bunch of them for a project ! Can hold a little treasure !
My sister lives where you can actually go into a store & buy something !! Yes I do have stores where I live , but not very many and not filled with the things I love ! I had her pick up some fabric for me for some upcoming projects! Is there nothing better to look at then an adorable "pile" of fabric ! So a big thanks to my sister for getting this for me !
Hope everyone is having a great weekend ! A little up-date on my last post ... the little doggie my son-in-law rescued from the cold is doing great and is now there new addition to the family. The kids love him !

Who Could Do This ?

Is that an adorable face ? My son in law was driving out of town the other evening and found this adorable dog on the side of the road. Mind you we have been having very cold weather STILL , like -20 below ( yes , that is really really cold !)  He  brought him home ( he had ice chunks stuck to the bottom & a hurt leg) he would not of lasted the night outside. It is such a good little dog , trained and good with my grand children ( he tries to sneek in their room when it's nap time ) ! He has a vet apointment today.So I would have to just ask , why would someone just dump a sweet little dog off on the road to just freeze to death ?  If people want a pet , remember it's forever or if a situation does arise please find it a home or if nothing else take it to the pound, better than letting it have a slow death. Not the best photo , he moves to much to get a good shot , laying on a pile of blankets ! Warm again & lots of food and love !
I will try to post some projects I have been working on. I have been busy with life , so I have not had much time to post much!!!  Just surviving winter , yesterday I was driving very slow on a side street because they all have ice and ruts and chunks on them and I just started to slide ...sideways , yikes and hit a large pile of snow that is really a big chunk of ice , so I damaged the front bumper on my Jeep! Oh crumb , dislike that a lot ! So ready for spring !
Have a wonderful & blessed day !!
