|So I was visiting Shari's website Plays with Paper (don't you just love that name?) and she had just introduced these darling little doll necklaces.|
|I saw them and wanted one...I mean REALLY had to have one, you know?|
|Someone else left a comment on her blog that SHE wanted the doll...rats!|
|This is her back, finished in every detail, just stunningly cute!|
|So I did what any rabid fan would do, I emailed Shari and she said that she would be happy to make me a custom doll. My heart was happy.|
|Shari also included this darling Thank You card that she created. Yeah, that's another thing beyond my realm!|
|And check out this sweet little frozen charlotte she included with my package. I was thrilled to see this because I've only ever seen these on other's blogs or shops, never owned one of my own.|
Shari, I can't thank you enough for making me my own special doll necklace.
If you've never been to playswithpaper
well, you must go see Shari's creations! You won't be disappointed..:)
Plus, she's having a giveaway....hurry!

|Of course I had to use my favorite fabric for the skirts. I also used german glass glitter and velvet leaves for their wings. They now reside in my Etsy shop...:).|
I'll be back soon to share the most amazing package I received in the mail today. Hope you all have a lovely evening!
These both sold, thanks so much!!!

|And then I spied this beauty...25"x25", huge and cushy. LOVE it.|
|In other news, I've been trying to create every day, some days big things, other days little ones, like these glittery birds. Using the above items...(don't you just love Twinklets? How can you not love something called Twinklets?)|
|Voila, my thrifted birds, which were kinda brightly colored for my taste (but the price was certainly right! Have you seen how much these cost at Michael's? It's a crime I tell ya).|
|Much prettier, don't you think?|
|This is how they started out...pretty, but bright. I like how they sparkle now and the colors are a lot more subdued.|
So don't pass up those birds while thrifting, they can be made pretty with very little effort.
What will you make prettier today?

Nerd that I am, I took it to bed with me so I could just enjoy the pictures. Maybe if I read it enough some of it will rub off on me?
Oh, if only.....

|So I found these scripture cards on ebay a short while ago and when I opened the box I gasped!|
|Aren't they lovely? The colors are stunning to me..muted greys, blues, pinks, reds, sepia.|
|The box they came is isn't too pretty so I may need to fix it up a bit.|

|So it's getting to be holiday time! Yay! My goal this year is to buy all hand-made, how about you? Today I listed the wallpaper journal above (it's huge, about 400 blank pages).|
|This album was also added, made with old ledger pages.....|
|I also added this logomachy glittered banner for your studio....happy creating!|

|The weather today could not have been more perfect! Sunshine, no wind to speak of, and around 70 degrees? What? This is Oregon in November? OK, I can live with it...|
|This lamp needed some dressing up so I strung my felt garland around it's shade. World Market carries these felt leaves every Fall, last year I missed out on them...not this year. They're simple and pretty.|
|These are real leaves that are still left on my redbud tree in my courtyard..it's such a pretty tree. The leaves are heart-shaped and they turn these luscious colors every Fall.|
|Pretty, right? I hope you take some time to look around your home and make some simple changes to go with this gorgeous season. We're hosting Thanksgiving this year and I'm so looking forward to it...get to use my new brown transferware!|

|And I was able to do that because of this fantastic stamp set...it was a gift from a friend...and if you ever see one of these sets my advice is to grab it quickly. If it's affordable that is, because I've seen these go for quite a bit.|
|It was produced in 1932...for classrooms. Let me tell you, you could have hours of fun with this set.....making up silly sentences etc.|
|The stamps above have actual pictures of all of those items on them, yes, even a picture of George Washington! I've seen many of these little stamps being sold separately which is kind of sad that somewhere along the way the set got broken up.....|
