Case in point...

It's all about the vintage, altered, embellished
suitcase...and here are some that caught my eye
at Round Top Antique Show this fall.
how clever is this?
I wondered later if they cut out the backs for storage places.

Dixie from French Lique and I
cuttin' up at Theresa's blog party.
Her booth (one of my favorites)
was in the shadows of
Zapp Hall.
Talking Trash Deb, Candy, Theresa, Dixie

This was a vignette that would have made
Goldie Locks curl up and take a nap...
Love it!

Fragments, Perfectly Flawed
a booth full of wonderful creations.
I would like to think of myself as perfectly flawed ;-)

Heading back to the car all hot and red faced,
I had to stop for a pose with
Cactus Jack the hat maker.It was a fun trip and sometimes
we just had to
laugh out loud!
Hope you too will have a day
with a little laughter in it...

Just back from a quick trip to Dallas with my hubby. He was working and I was out spending it. Found myself at the Grapevine Mills Mall which had a pretty nice book store--Books-A-Million. Well being the magazine junkie that I am, I just had to have this one. Vintage & Victorian...two things that are great all by themselves but put together's just a tiny bit of what's waiting inside.

Living rooms...
and you should see the whole thing.
It's a two pager and
I'm only sharing half.
A center-fold sure to get your heart racing.

and Bedrooms...
I love the mostly white look
but color really does it for me!

and Kitchens...Oh My!

I'm pruddy sure this magazine is going
to add a few wishes to my
Round Top shopping list.

Leaving on Saturday

Not all roses are red...

Of course I am off doing...
life, but just had to
take a moment to share
some pink love.
Saturdays are Kitchen Band practice at
my mother-in-laws retirement home.
We are working on a new show...
All About Girls!
more on that later
A piece of my heart...and mind
are home dreaming of redecorating.
And these two scenes make me happy.
joining Pink Saturday and
Wishing all a happy pink Saturday.

Love on Wings

pearls & buttons & rust...oh my!

Can't remember how long it's been
since I created something.
So today I broke the dry spell.
I am trying a new thing...
CRAFT DAY every Wednesday.
vintage flower embellishment

With one of my sister's birthday approaching,
I wanted to make a little love. Using my new art form
of fabric collage learned from KC Willis a vintage, winged
lady encourages to spread your wings and fly.
But I know this wouldn't have happened
if not for CRAFT DAY!

Happy Birthday Pam!
Spread your wings and
do something you've always
dreamed of doing.

Love from
