Lucky me, so I'm passing it on

I am so lucky, not only do I have an AWESOME mother in law who supports me in every way, BUT....she's a world traveler...AND she knows me so very well...AND she never comes home empty handed.
She just got back from China and brought home some wonderful goodies.
She knows I am bird crazy, so she found this great book of classic Chinese paintings.

Love the vivid colors.

This one is called 'Early Spring'. Love the cherry blossoms.

In between visiting Beijing & the Great Wall, she discovered a little shop that sold fabric remnant's. Check out these amazing silks!

I can't decide which side of this black & bronze I like best.

All of them in my favorite colors.

Yeah, she knows me pretty well. I'm going to have fun playing with these. Thanks Sandy!

I love digging through piles of old photos at antique malls. I found these beauties in my friend Barbara's booth at Grapevine Antique Mall. These are sweet & funny images friendship, so I'm passing them onto my blog friends. Use them if you like.

I'm going to use them in a project from Artist Class, presented by Beth Leintz. Pretty gift tags in an altered tin box.
I wanted to show you a picture, but blogger is giving me fits. I can't move my pics around.

It is so wonderful that you have a wonderful MIL. She must really love you, but I can see why. You are quite a girl.
The treasures are beautiful and the old pics are awsome.
Hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow.

What special treasures, and from your mother in law, that's even more special. I am falling all over that material girl. I can't wait to see what you do with that.

Have fun!

I also want to say that you cracked me up with your comment about me singing karoke in my pj's with a latte in one hand and a snickers bar in the other!!! Love it, cause that would be a dream come true.

SO envious of those birds and fabrics! They are gorgeous. (Oh and of the MIL, too! LOL)
