~WHEN PINK MAKES ME BLUE~

~LOVING ALICE BLUE~

Today I will be working in my studio all day long creating things like the two Sachet Pillows you see above.  I finished both of these late in the day Sunday and I'm soooo loving getting back to this intricate style of handwork.  I'm a bit BLIND at the moment from all the detail work and I'm thinking I need new glasses...or at least some stronger contacts!  (One of the things I don't like about growing older is losing MY YOUNG, STRONG EYES!)

You might remember a post I did from last year where I took an aging photograph of my grandfather and great-grandmother and incorporated it into a sachet pillow as a gift for my mother.  The more I thought about it the more I wanted to expand upon this sweet concept.  So...I've opted to take some of my very favorite vintage images and work them into some special Mother's Day offerings for my website
~SACHET FOR MY MOTHER LAST YEAR~

Both Sachets sold early, early this morning, but I promise there will be more for those of you who are interested.  I hope you'll check them out when you have time!  Lots of sweet things coming up!
~MISS MAUD, TOO!~

Hope you had an awesome weekend.  I spent a great deal of mine painting out a bicycle planter my Mr. AGPMan bought me a couple of years ago.  I plan on showing you her transformation tomorrow...  I actually didn't really plan on giving her a makeover (she was Verdigris and lovely!), but since I was a fool and left her outside all winter she was looking a little worse for wear and so a repaint job was in order!!  More soon about this!

HAPPY MONDAY!


Love to you...

They are gorgeous! I know what you mean about the eyes. Mine are so weary by the end of a long day of sewing and creating. Fortunately readers get me through. Rebecca, you have inspired me in so many ways. These 3 weeks of vacation have allowed me to "play" and dream of where I want to take my business adventures after I retire. I am working on "Celebration" images. Like you I love images and old graphics and I want to incorporate those into celebrations, like anniversaries, marriages and births. I just love Photoshop and the possibilities are endless. I will keep you posted.

Have a glorious and blessed week. Much love, Sue

What beautiful sachets! The antique look to these is just wonderful. I love to visit this blog. I also like this rendition of "Fields of Gold". I had never heard it before. It is so nice to listen to.

I remember your original post. I thought they were so lovely and such a fantastic idea then, and even more so now! I will keep on the lookout for more to show up in your store.
I am totally with you on declining eye sight. I am almost legally bling in one eye and I'm only 32!! Thank goodness they make contacts strong enough for me!
Hope you have a wonderful week!

Your creations are so lovely and girly. I am looking forward to seeing how the bike turned out. Thank you so much for the encouraging words you posted in comments. I was so scared to hint the publish button on that post. I feel blessed by your response. Hope your day goes well. Blessings!

I know your Mother must have been thrilled beyond words to have received the ~SPECIAL~sachet you gifted to her. It has all the elements..sweet locket, vintage lace, your all famous bouquets and the graphic is perfectly gorgeous.

You never cease to amaze me nor your faithful followers with your God=Given Talents. Everything you create is so unique..you are always "thinking outside of the box"!!

Have a great Week

Your pillows are absolutely stunning! What fabulous and intricate work you do (and I know just what you mean about your eyesight... I went to the eye doctor to get new glasses for driving, and he told me I needed bifocals!!!). ;)

btw... the beautiful little pink painted roses laptop desk I purchased from you on ebay ages ago (when my 10yr old daughter was a baby!) DOES INDEED have your name painted on the bottom! ;)

Rebecca, I think I just lost my whole post, but I am going to wait a bit and see what happens. Maybe, it was too long ?
Thank you for your kind words. I hope something I have shared can become part of your beautiful projects.
I have NO idea how to do what you do...they are simply lovely.
