I just looked on my stats for this blog and this will be my 600th post! Wow! I can't believe I have actually rambled on and on.............
THis week I have really been on a little bootie roll. These little things are so much fun and so addictive to make. I just keep cutting out more and more and it seems like I will never finish. Here are a few more photos.
So there you are on this friday afternoon just before the 4th of July weekend. Hope you all have a safe and wonderful holiday.............stay cool.
The last several weeks have kinda been a blur( kinda like the expression on this little boys face).........from 2 showers and 2 weddings, Dallas Market, classes,3 baby showers, birthday and birthday surprises and all the inbetweens....... I am so ready to be home for a while........I am such a home body and would be perfectly happy just to stay in my " ROOM" and create all day and all night if I could. That is really not reality but that is how I wish it could be......So starting today I need to get back in the swing of things and start creating once again, and I am ready.
I hope to get some projects started and finished, and start gearing for some Fall classes. I have a few things in mind but it will be a while before I can show you and start to schedule them. Probably in August sometime. I will let you all know well in advance.
Below is a photo of some little treasures my mom handed me the other day in a little jewelry box. They are the cutest little plastic charms. If anyone out there knows what they are or what they were used for please let me know. One set is on a chain for a necklace, and the others are just loose. They are so detailed with fine lines. You can see how small they are up against the coins.
That is all I have today.......I do want to say again to all of you who sent me Birthday greeting and wishes, Thank You! I received some of the sweetest texts, emails, cards and comments from all of you! It sure made turning 60 easier! I'm still not sure I like the sound of sixty! Oh well I better put my big girl panties on and deal with it.................
make it a great wednesday..............106 here in OKC! I love it!
Oh wow you all really blew me away with some of the sweetest comments and birthday wishes! Thank You..........and now the winner of the wooden dollie is DENISE BRYANT! Congratulations and would you please email me for some information...( firstname.lastname@example.org) Thank You all again.
Yesterday I received one of the best Birthday gifts ever........Our son Adam surprised me and flew in from Denver! So to all of you I may be away from the computer for a couple days and enjoy him being home .........
Happy Monday to all and thanks again for the birthday wishes!
I have been away for a few days! Every June I head to Dallas for Market! We always have a great time but it is hard work, if you can believe it! We walk and walk and walk and walk more, and we try to order merchandise that we think might sell.........its always a gamble no matter what, the new trends, what's in what's out.........and this year in several places it was all about VINTAGE! New sections of the market were geared towards old, rusty, lacey and worn out! (like me)
I am home now and I need to get down to making these little cuties! Before I left I cut out 25 pair of these sweet little baby booties. They are made out of felted wool..... I only got a few pair finished before I left......... I am going a little different direction this time and adding different little pieces of lace and ribbons. I will still have the cute ones with the flowers, hearts and polka dots like the photos below from before....
I hope this finds you having a wonderful summer weekend.......
Remember you have until tomorrow evening to leave me a comment on the birthday giveaway!
I can't tell you how many more photos I have with the color turquoise......but I just wanted to pick out a few. Turquoise is one of those colors you see in our homes, clothes, jewelry, work, advertisement, and of course outside..........and there are so many different shades of turquoise! Just look around and you will be amazed......have a beautiful turquoise tuesday!
