Happy Easter!

I'm still in Mississippi, but I wanted to wish all of my blogging buddies a Happy Easter.
I'm so grateful for the blessings God has given me, my health, my family, my home.
I'm also so grateful that I've made so many amazing friends this year,...ya I'm talking about You!

The sweetest girl in Denmark is giving away one of her precious, amazing dolls. Dorthe is so special to me. She was the very first person to follow me, & has always been right here encouraging all of my endeavors. I own a beautiful angel that Dorthe made for me at Christmas, she sits in my studio & brings me luck. If you would like a chance to win one for yourself, go see her sweet & inspiring blog

Just before we left for vacation the postman delivered a wonderful surpise from my friend Beth.  Look at the orphaned hairbrush!

The box was filled with treasures & creations like this sweet dress tag. Beth does this mean I'm now part of the sisterhood ?? 

And this little pin is now the most coveted jewel in my whole studio! It is just the COOLEST thing ever!
I love this Alice tag, I will add it to my swap book from Karla.
Tags, twine, lace & jewels, oh my gosh I was squealing!!
You see... I've been blog stalking Beth for months now. My peskiness finally wore her down.  I think I might, (I'm just sayin might) be a future member of the Lawrence Hat Syndicate.

Thank you so much Beth, you know I love it all! Tell Karla & Mary, hide the breakables because I'm packing up the RV & heading to Kansas!

Look at this gorgeous velvet ribbon, this is some of the great stuff I bought with Jodie last week.

I seriously could not believe my eyes when I saw these sealed packages imported from Switzerland.  I bought as much as I could afford, 5 packs, 10 yards each.  The colors are so yummy....... taupe, cream, chocolate brown...MY colors! I also bought some beautiful aqua & pink to share.

Oh the sewing notions! Look at this box of embroidery thread, & the stains of age on the zipper. 

2 baskets full........

2 months mad money.........

Tons of vintage goodness, Priceless!
It's a good thing we have a luggage compartment on the top of our van to transport my goodies home.  Tomorrow we hit the road for our 11 hour drive home.

It is good to be back - that was 7 days of going going going! I met some fabulous people and had a blast. I have enough blog material to last me a couple of weeks now :)

Hi Lisa, You have been spoiled and received gorgeous goodies from Beth! I love all the wooden spools and the dress tag is so adorable!
Ah, You couldn't resist those awesome velvet ribbons! I don't blame you! When Jodie had posted about them some weeks ago, I had been drooling already. Your other treasures look wonderful as well! It looks like you had a real good time and did a great job spending some money :-).

Miss Sandy said...


Just love your tattered and tarnished style! I made the project you designed from Artist Class today and LOVED it too! The technique was so much fun and I now have a personalized piece to hang in my studio as inspiration. Thank you for sharing such an easy to follow tutorial. By the way, the heat gun thing - genius!

Have safe travel home!
