Hello friends! I must admit I've forgotten how to blog so if this looks strange please forgive me, it's been a few years!
I do hope you've all been well and life is treating you kindly......I've been working in my studio (cleaning it unfortunately, not creating!) but it badly needed to be done. I'm getting rid of so much stuff, unfinished projects, supplies, etc.
Not too sure yet where I'll sell these goods because Etsy has surely been letting me down for at least the past two years. Too many changes, sigh, and not for the good.
I'll leave you with some current 'work-in-progress' photos and hope to re-connect with you all very soon!!

I admit I've had troubles of late with google.....it's what happens when you take a "time out". Things change behind your back!
We look forward to our annual beach trip which will happen soon. It's the thing that memories are made of!
So many changes in our lives recently, thankfully most of them great. Hope you and yours are feeling the same. It's Summer and the livin' should be easy. I hope you're all taking the time to relax and re-fuel.
I made these BEACH letters using my dd's Laura Ashley border. They sold pretty quickly and I do hope the new owner enjoys these letters! I love making things like this that speak to people. I like to imagine how they will use them in their home. Are they for a child's room? A studio? A sunroom?
It's fun to think of the possibilities.........don't you think?

|A vintage scapular.......|
|The other side of the scapular...it's draped over the top of the frame.|
|I feel so blessed to have this special photo of my Mom holding me as an infant......she was beautiful inside and out!!!!|
|Have you ever made a "shrine" or special tribute to someone you love? This piece will hang in my newly remodeled studio so that I can see my sweet Mom every day and think of her.|

But who hasn't, right?
Well, dh had purchased it for me and kept it a secret for an entire week....I'm impressed!
In any event, I thank those who have inquired about me and what happened with my blog or lack thereof...... It means a lot to me and you know who you are!!!
In other news my sweet dd is about to graduate from 8th grade and her one and only school so we have a ton of festivities just ahead of us.......all great! What a special time in a young persons life.
She's such a wonderful girl, we are truly blessed.
Hope you're all well.......I look forward to getting back into the blogging world.

|I purchased the gorgeous doily keeper from a wonderful Etsy seller....there's a smaller one that is identical . The old fabric with the blue flowers and birds is just incredible....love them both! This vignette is in a corner of my dining room.|
|Pretty gold glittery bird holding a very old gospel card....he greets you as you come through the front door.|
|I've been so lucky to find some amazing old Polish ornaments (mostly at Vintage Industry) and they look so pretty all together in a bowl.....love all the pinks and the wee bit of glitter that is still barely hanging on......:).|
|Another advent calendar from Germany....adore this one with the trees that 'stand out' in the front.|
|More fun Polish ornaments. They're like miniature works of art to me!|
How is your Christmas decorating going? Have you started yet?
(Please excuse my less than stellar photos, it's a VERY dark and rainy morning here in Oregon and I took these with my iPhone!)

|I've been creating, how 'bout you?|
A wintery angel house.....
|Tart tin ornaments (with angels of course).|
Crocheted ornaments (with angels of course).
Seeing a pattern yet?
|I love creating at this time of year....it does the soul good!|
I hope you find a bit of time just for yourself to make something that makes your heart sing.
All of the above creations are currently in my Etsy shop awaiting their new homes...!
