~MORE PINK ROSE TEA BAGS...and Giveaway, too!~

I shared with you yesterday that today my November Giveaway would begin...and it will, it will!  PINKY-PINK PROMISE!  I ended up having some unexpected errands to run this morning (exciting bathroom makeover stuff!), but... I'll be back early in the evening to unveil a sweet little pretty I'll be offering up to those of you who are interested in joining in the fun!
Yesterday I was in my studio putting the finishing touches on the Victorian Girl Altered Art Tea Bag Covers I've had in the works and I finally got them uploaded to my A Gathering Place Website last night.
 My fairly new camera is giving me FITS and because of the wasted time spent on taking scads of pictures (only to have them turn out crummy!) I'm seriously considering purchasing a camera I've had my eye on (eeek...and heart, too!) for quite awhile now (a Cannon EOS Rebel)...
That said...the quality of the pictures I'm showing you today are truly poor...sooo sorry!  I'm tired of whining about the issues with the camera (maybe it's the picture-taker!) and I'm close tossing it out...
Anyway...sometime later this afternoon I'll be retaking pictures of the new Christmas Tea Bag Covers that will be uploaded to my shoppe tomorrow...hope you'll check them out when you have time!
Of all the vintage images I love to work with nothing speaks to me more than the vintage artwork of Miss Frances Brundage.  Don't you just love her???  I like to think she's looking down upon us from heaven in total amazement and awe over the way her timeless paintings and works of art are being used more than 100 years after they were first offered to the public.

More later today!

Love to you...

I love the tea bag covers, Rebecca! So sweet! And I think your pictures are wonderful...but don't hesitate to leave a hint for Santa that you want that Rebel! I have thought about it but I find even my little old camera to be difficult!

Enjoy your day!

XO,
Jane

Oh you darling lady...my pillow came yesterday and of course I am in awe of your talents. Everything that I get from you, be it cards or pillows or gift tags or ornaments, always melt my heart and I look forward to visiting your blog everyday. The tea bag covers are to die for (just ordered some) and will make a lovely addition to my tea tables.

Get the new camera... Life is short!

Dearest R. You continue to inspire me even when I may feel uninspireable! These are darling and they would make wonderful little thinking of you or long time now word ice breakers in a sweet letter. I love them! I look forward to your giveaway. Lovely job on your tea packets. Hugs. tammy

Well, Rebecca, I hate to tell you this...but your pictures look just fine to me. Of course, I can't take a picture worth anything and just have a little Snappy Canon..whatever it is-that I dropped ON THE CONCRETE 2 days ago..and it still works!

Your tea bags are darling and that artwork is adorable. I think she would be pleased to see someone using her artwork so beautifully! Hugs- Diana

Rebecca, those are absolutely lovely! So pretty!

And I feel terrible that your present is riding around in the back of my car. I have been up to my eyeballs in alligators, and I need to get it to the pack and ship. I was sick, and then I had company. Now, I'm battling something again and have workmen on top of it. I will get your present to you BEFORE Christmas! Do you believe me??? I will. I will. I willllll! LOL!

Love you, beautiful one...

XO,

Sheila :-)
