We went to an antique show on Friday...I got this cute tin that used to hold cookies.

I am always looking for Vintage Halloween....I got this at Coeur D'Alene, ID.

I think four nuts could fit in it!

I love going to this primitive shop in a near by town...they have cute inexpensive pictures. 
This is a huge tag my daughter made....cut from her laser....and I got to play with it!

There is a pencil next to it...that is how big it is!
Here it is hanging in my office.
Selina is considering alot of new products for her etsy shop...this may be one of them.
You could put any embroidery design in it....making it instantly framed! 
I recently got this lovely piece of art from Michelle is drawn on muslin!
I am still deciding if I will frame it and stitch it up into something. 
I went to the EXPO in my hometown almost everyday back in the early 70's....with my siblings to look after me.
I got this little flag for 25 is a great memory for me.
This cute elephant was made by a crafter...glittered...tutu of  party streamer and a sweet paper hat...this is in my office.

Be Nice...freebie & more

Be nice...or this.
Have you noticed that people are ruder than they used to be.
Also people thinking they are being "Honest"...but are just plain mean?
I really believe....if you don't have something nice to say...then don't say it at all.
This would be a fun little sign in your office space!
*Please note that all freebies are for you to use to make a couple finished goods (no mass producing) and a couple gifts...they are still legally my designs.

I am so happy for the weekend...I really need some time where I can just chill.

I have a new banner set in my etsy shop: Sweet girls banner. 

They come on this collage sheet....12 banner flags....just download and print...cut out and glue onto jute! 
I painted the girls and flowers...converted them to the flag shapes and also made extra flowers and motifs as an illustration that all the colors go together perfectly.
The banner can be any length. Each sheet has 12 could print as many as you need.
I have mine hanging in my office above my computer.

Grow...freebie embroidery design

I can't believe how much everything is growing is amazing!
Everyday I go out and see such a change in the scenery!
Even the air smells sweet ... just love it!
Today's freebie is "Grow".  
This would make a great stitched up piece in a black narrow frame!
*Please note that all freebies are for you to use to make a couple finished goods (no mass producing) and a couple gifts...they are still legally my designs.

This is my latest sign...
I illustrated it....making the background pattern too...I like how the white oval is transparent enough to see the pink background.  This is another $5.99 digital download sign...u download and u fast fast!
I get inexpensive frames from the dollar store, walmart, and thrift strores. 
Remember the United States wall decor my daughter bought me?
Well I painted it... 
I decided to go with alternating colors....soft colors. 
It was very bright when I was finished.... 
So I sanded it...I may sand it some more too.
I straightened the picture better....I just love it.

Trix says...Please check out my Instagram!!!
I share lots of photos there that I don't anywhere else!

Have a Spectacular Weekend!!!
