Hello Valentine!

Happy Valentine's day to you!

I just wanted to share some of my home decorations.
I got this little sign for only 5 bucks at a cool shabby chic store in Spokane, on Monroe street.

I am a sucker for vintage valentines....
especially ones with kitties!
My daughter lets me take over her christmas tree during the off season....so I bought pink and red ornaments after christmas when hobby lobby had them 75% off. 
It makes a fun display, very cheery!
My tree topper is a big heart I made years ago that has an old photo of a man and it says "Fool of Love"...lol.
I love snoopy and the peanuts gang!
Snoopy is so cute and his antics are hilarious!
I got a huge honey comb display from the two women antique store.
I believe it is a Bethany lowe.
I got the sweetest glittery house with chenille stem kitty cat...right up my alley.
It was in a cool store called the Boulevard.
When clowns were cute...lol.
My favorite is this cat with a bonnet. 
She has a mechanical hand.
My old quilt and a cute ornament made by Simply Eilene. 
Her items sell out within a couple minutes of  her restock.
I painted Linus, on a whim....he just loves his teacher.
I wish he would have shared his chocolates with Charlie Brown.

I have a table runner and lots of goodies on it ....on my dining room table.
Quack!
You can't beat the dollar store!
Glitterama!

My little doll (I kept one for myself) and she is next to my party streamer trees...that look frosty.

Groovy artist!
Another sweet cat...that looks like a stuffed animal.
Vintage valentines...so delicate and detailed!
My hubby has bought me many many boxes of chocolates...love them all!
I also collect scottish valentines...my dad is from the Colquhoun Clan and my mom is from the Drummond clan.

Target had some amazing dollar store type valentine items this year...the unicorn was one of them!
Have a fabulous day!

A valentine box of goodies...

My daughter Selina and I are collaborating on a fun new project...
It's like a subscription box, but it is just a one time thing.
We may be doing more in the future for holidays.

You will get a box of fun products to decorate, craft with and celebrate Valentine's day! 
All items are designed by Selina and Shirley Hudson. 

There is 6 different items in the box:

A vibrant print....saying: Your heart and my heart are very very old friends.  I watercolored the art and added this sweet saying that can fit love of any form.  It is an 8" x 10" print (can fit a 8 1/2" x 11" frame too) (Frame not included- the one on display in photo is $4 at walmart). The print will have a clear protective bag. 

Isn't it cute framed up!

A valentine girl chenille stem dolly...on a spool. She is holding a heart and love envelope....and has a cute pink dress with trims and glitter. OOAK. 5 1/2" tall. Ooh la la.

Her face is another piece of art I painted....a pouty little girl.  She stands nicely and is super sweet.

A sweet wooden ornament...with a kitty cat and heart basket (we designed) ...hand painted....with lovely seam binding ribbon for a hanger. (2 3/4" x 2 3/4" not including ribbon length)

I just love the wood ornament....our special design.

10 heart tags in pink, red and white. 2" x 2" not including length of bakers twine. Hand stamped, great for gifts, adding to decor and snail mail. 

One wood hexie pendant with embroidery pattern for hearts (Not finished item) as shown. Really easy and fun to do! (hexie measures: 1 5/8" x 1 5/8")

Here is what the back looks like.

The finished design looks like this...fun and easy to make.

A Hudson's Holidays pattern - A vintage valentine mini quilt pattern. 3 designs are included....make some sweet wallhangings and table mats.

If you already have this pattern...I could replace it for another one.

We tucks a few little extras in too.  

*****The value of all these items are more than $65.00. The box will be sent in a priority box...super fast....so you can enjoy your box of goodies.

I have been super busy with tons going on...
everyday is crazy.....hope to have a fun date night with my hubby and see the movie "The Favourite".

Happy weekend to you!!!

HAppy New YEar....welcome January!

Wow....It's 2019!
Can you believe it?!
Time flies...
How was your holidays?
I had a great time....lots of fun, family, friends, and events...
but I am so glad for things to get back to normal.
I am still working on a HUGE project... but the hard parts will be over soon.
I wish I could talk about it but I can't....you will be the first to know when its time.
In the mean while....I designed up a new January phone/tablet calendar to download.
I wanted a pine tree, nature look....I don't want to see snow...lol.

The green sidebar is perfect for your icons to still be visible.
I keep my shortcut icons to a minimum...they get cluttery.

Selina has some brand new needle minders in her shop.  There is a camera, create, coffee, cup cake and love.  Each one is comes with clean silver magnets...that are super strong.  She has many more to choose from as well.  They keep your needles handy and make great gifts too.

I have also been making some fun ornaments....using prints of my art!
These are all hand made by me.
They are on wood and have a gold wire hanger...plus some seam binding ribbon.  Some are for Valentine's day and St. Patrick's day....they are in my Etsy shop.

While watching movies and TV ...I had to make more of these sweet pendants... they are a little naughty....but sometimes that is how I roll. The pattern for these are in Selina's etsy shop as well as the mini hoops.
