Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
That title is just fun to say! Actually, I received a sweet surprise from my mother in law, Jean, this weekend. We had dinner Friday night and she brought me a bag of vintage goodies she has been saving for a long time.
This little box was full of rhinestone bracelets, necklaces and little treasures. The top of the box is a pin cushion. She used it for her hat pins. I love the blue pieces in here too. Here's a better look at some of the rhinestones.
She also had saved a tin of buttons for many years and has donated that to my studio and artwork. I really like having a little part of her in the studio with me now. I was touched that she thought to give them to me.
I snapped a few photos tonight as the sun was going down. When I shoot photos in the backyard, I always have two helpers, Shelby and Zoey. I have to be careful with art pieces that they don't slobber and step on them. It can be a challenge! Bassets are very, very curious. What is yours, is theirs. They parked themselves within a few feet of me to watch.
I have a handful of projects on the table this week...art doll assemblage, altered whisk brooms and some rooster tags. I've struggled a bit with my next giveaway choice. You guys are so wonderful and I've hit some important milestones in March - 500 followers and six months blogging. I'm working on something special to share with you so hang in there with me and check back often. I appreciate your follows and comments so much. Have a safe week!
