BEFORE & AFTER Monday
Things are changing everywhere.
Take flight over to Susan's and see!

Tried my hand at tea staining.


I was looking through my
Magnolia Pearl book~
A Bit of Velvet & a Dash of Lace
That's where I got the idea
to tea stain and also her quote
I put with the pretty girl
with the blue ribbon.


Happy Monday and please scroll down
to see my Blue Monday girl.

P.S. How To Do? Robin a.k.a. Magnolia
was in Country Living and tea-staining
was one of the topics.

Too often we try to choose and control things we cannot.

Too seldom we choose to control what we can ...our attitude
