Things are a
little crazy here after 100 days of 3 digit weather.
Okay, maybe not 100 days, but it seems like it!
I'm not sure how many days because I'm too weak to find the remote & turn to the news.
So what can we do inside on a hot day?
Design & build a spaceship to catapult us somewhere cool
- of course!
I think you could build a spaceship with duct tape!
(my kids do wear shirts, I promise.)
While the kids were busy exploring the galaxy, I unwrapped some great gifts~
Boxes from Dawn are incredible.
Every item packed so carefully.
There is some history behind wonderfully tattered wedding shoes.
Let's just say that I've admired them from afar for ages,
& now they're mine!
I will leave this pile here on my desk for weeks I think. I will just sit & stare at it.
The little elf shoes are the cutest things I've ever seen!
They are so teeny. I just love them.
Dawn has a tutorial on her blog if you want to make little shoes.
So many little bits of nature, lace & vintage goodies, all in perfect 'low color'.
Speaking of 'low color'.....
Beth, Miss Low Color herself, sent this amazing Autumn colored collage.
Can't believe she used this beautiful book cover.
Sewing, inking so many elements layered on. We are about to begin work on a special sewing themed project. This collage will certainly inspire me along the way.
Yesterday something totally unexpected arrived on my door step. Overseas postage hum............
It was from Tina!
This idea is so clever, Tina flipped a tiny lampshade upside down & turned it into a basket.
Trimmed in laces, handle wrapped in ribbon & a prism dangling from the bottom.
She also packed the basket with these lovely trims.
Thank you friends, I love it all!
A couple of packages left the house too.
A couple belated birthdays.
On a trip to the mall I found & bought up all these
velvet frame backs.
Perfectly faded from years in a window sill.
Can you tell I'm ready for fall?
The fern in back is encased in wax.
It sat in my car for days waiting on me to bring it to the post office. Gosh I hope it doesn't look like a melted birthday candle by the time she receives it!
I'm linking up with Debra & all the other's for
Vintage Inspiration Friday.
Wishing you all a nice cool, breezy weekend!
