Sneaky peak & what I've been up to.

Happy Wednesday to you!
I am always happy for Wednesday (survivor is on!...still addicted to it!)
I wanted to show you a sneaky peaky of my next pattern.....
It is a Needle punch!
I love Americana....and adding to my collection of Americana decor is fun.
This will be out soon.
I have recently started Instagram.
It is all new to me....but I LOVE it!
You can follow anything and everybody.

It is amazing to be inspired by all the artists out there....
see pics of your favorite stars...
follow you family...
see what is the coolest in vintage finds....
see new fabric from designers....
it goes on and on...
Anything you are interested....there will be an Instagram for!
Above I showed how one day I had a great time with art supplies, magazines and a, 
I drew on little ATC cards...just goofing around. 

I went to a plant sale this past weekend... the vintage coffee can with flowers was 3 dollars...the rusty flour sifter with plants was 2 dollars....cant believe it. They look sweet on my outdoor table.

Lilacs are early! Love how fragrant....great is good.

I just picked this tulip and put in a vase of water...she opened up big happy!

I went through some of my piles of drawings...maybe I will use some for my surface pattern designs.
I noticed some I used to make patterns of
like the bee...
and I used the chick for this Easter pillow... 
Never throw your drawings and art away...
You never know what will inspire you or what you can use later.

So...that is some of the things I have been up to.
Hope you get some time for you today!

You can print them over and over....add string and ribbons. 
I use old photos, paper and create my artwork...

I love shopping at antique stores....this one called 
in Spokane Washington
is definitely one of my favorites!!
I love the bike wheel....full of vintage postcards 
Old babies....I wonder what their story is... 
same here...
Who loved them and what happened? 
This is a chair's seat....a crazy quilt with some embroidery....1901, 1897, 1902... old. 
two thumpers! 
These crack me up....reminds me being on the phone with my sister Cecilia. 
Dramatic isn't she!
I would love the mannequin head...hehehe 
They really have a knack for displays 
Ok...I really loved this....too bad there was no mark to go with....
it is adorable!
I can just imagine the happy boy wearing this Halloween night! 
Cute mouse measuring spoon holder! 
I think that is how you spell
owl and froggy 
I LOVED Miss Piggy in the 70's when I would see her movies, collect stickers...etc...
There was something about her bossy aggressiveness that was so opposite of me.

This weekend is an antique show in town....
More shopping!!!
Happy day to you!!
