Painting Up A Storm
I've worked with JOY in my painting studio for the past couple days and absolutely LOVE having control over my time again! I'm beginning to remember what my life was like before I bit off more than I could chew... I hope you'll find time to check out latest website offerings...several new things for your pleasure...like the the sweet Tussy Mussy you see above!!!
Hmmm....I'm getting started late this morning! It' must be all that fabulous sleep I'm getting now that my hectic life has called down a bit....
Or...maybe it's just that I didn't want to face my kitchen this morning and the SIMPLE fact that my trusty fridge decided to FAIL ME on Monday night! I just hate it when I pay big bucks for things and then they don't work forever...don't you? My guy said the thing just needs a new timer... Gee~since a kitchen remodel is on the horizon I was kinda HOPING I'd get to pick out a new state-of-the-art refrigerator a bit early! I've had my eye on a 2die4 Samsung French Door model (the one my hubbs rolls his own eyes over!) but it was not meant to be. Given it's cost it will most definitely continue to languish in the "it's never gonna happen" column of my wish-list!
The repair part should be here on Friday successfully dashing my hopes for a replacement!
Sweet Vintage Millinery Finds
On a much brighter note...last month Miss Jen from J.Nichelle drew my name as one of the winners for her sweet GIVEAWAY. Now...how fabulous is that? It's just too, too fun to get FREE STUFF!
Lovely Old Wallpaper
I've been over-the-top excited to win SEVERAL sweet little contests since I started my blog in January '09 and truthfully I'm always amazed when my name is called!
Fabulous Pink Flocked Paper
Since I don't believe in 'luck' I just have to believe that winning was meant to be.
Amazing Vintage Glass Buttons
Tucked inside the box from Jen are all the things you see above! A beautiful sampling of vintage wallpapers (of course you KNOW I love the pink flocked paper!) and a sweet little box chocked full of the best old glass buttons one could ever hope to find!
Nestled into the mix were vintage millinery flowers and some lacy old wrapping ribbon and three fabulous vintage postcards!
Pink and Green Toile Plate
And then...right in the middle of the beautifully packaged box was this absolutely stunning pink and green toile plate. The icing on the cake was the sweet hand-written note from Jen herself!
Thank you so much Jen! I hope you'll pop over to her beautiful blog and say hello. She's wonderful and a very gifted artisan!
Now...don't forget about my own giveaway! You can find it on my upper left sidebar or you can simply click HERE!
Blessings to you for a lovely day! I'm back working in my studio in hopes of finishing up more painted pretties for the Shoppe.
Love to you~
