Catching Up...

What have I been up to lately? I sent this birthday atc off to Sheila. This is an atc swap with about 25 people and we send each one a atc in the month of their birthday. I will show you the ones I get in September!

Here are some pictures I have up on Artsy Mamas Year of Color Flickr site. The color this month is BLUE. This is a sweet little 1st birhtday figurine.

An african violet in my kitchen window.

Here are some of my vintage sewing notions.

I have been catching up on some good reading! Somerset is one of my favorite publications.

I received my Secret Admirer package! She was Mary Anne the host of this swap! She sent me some wonderful things! She decorated this awesome heart box and embellished a sweet ornament with a cameo.

This is just a glimpse of what is inside. It is packed with valentine pink goodness! I don't know how she got the lid on it!!

She also sent a paper pack of stickers, papers, ribbon, card, and tags. ( Sorry for the glare)
Thank you Mary Anne!
I will try and post a sneek peek of some swaps I am working on later!
Hope everyone is having a good week and trying to stay warm!

Pink Saturday

Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday. I have been away for awhile and have missed alot of Saturdays! But with the New Year here I am ready to jump back in and get back in the swing of things! The above picture is a fleamarket find I found while Christmas shopping and had to buy it for myself. It will help me stay organized in the New Year.
This was a purchase I made from this sweet lady. It is a vintage wallpaper covered wooden box , it will hold my "special " treasures.

This is the inside. I love it! This was another Christmas present "to me"! To see more of Pink
Saturday stop by and see Beverly for the complete list of partisapants. Have a great weekend,
thank you for stopping by.
