Steamy and Full Steam Ahead!

Happy Thursday Friends!

Wow!  Is it hot or what??

Even at 7 am in the morning here in central Florida it feels like you are walking into a steam sauna when you step outside.  Sooo crazy!

 I know everyone wants to enjoy summer, especially those of you who have the long, cold winters!  I love the summer, too, even
with the extreme hot days!

 When you design and create, though, you
always have to look ahead to the next season.

So that is what I have been doing.
I am thinking of the coolness of Fall
and working hard on my 2015 pumpkins!

Here is the first one available in my shop!

I love working with vintage chenille!  It is so soft, and full of texture!

There are tons more pumpkins to come!

I will carry some favorites from last
Fall, and am adding some exciting new 
designs, too!!

Only one of these cuties left if you want it!
Click here to see it in the shop!

Have a wonderful day, and
choose joy!!

From My Studio

Happy Wednesday!!

I hope all is wonderful in your neck of the woods!

Things here are great!
Could use a few more hours in the day,
but other than that...


Here are a couple of things I created 
for the shop!

A sweet petite journal for special thoughts, doodles, or prayers!

So much fun to design!
These one of a kind charmers always
take way more time and thought than the finished product might reflect!

First step is deciding on the color theme. Then I have a drawer full of vintage laces and trims and I play until I find just the right ones, and just the right elements and embellishments.

Adhering each piece is always a 
challenge because I just can't tolerate
glue that shows, lumps or bumps and anything being even a little bit off of where I think it should be.

I just ADORE when people take the time
to pay attention to detail, and always
want my creations to show that detail
is important to me.

This is a sweet, mostly vintage, inspiration kit full of treasures!

Both of these are listed in the shop!!

Oh and guess what the rest of my time is being
dedicated to???

Designing my new line of pumpkins!!!

Sneak preview coming soon!
Can't wait to share!!

Have a lovely day, and thanks so much
for stopping by!!

Embellished and Repurposed

Hello World!

How are you all doing this fine Saturday???

It is soooo incredibly stifling hot outside, that I knew I was going to have to work in some studio time!  

Don't get me wrong...I love Florida's hot climate!!  But when you just stand outside in the shade and sweat...that's a little too hot!!

So here are pics of what I have finished so far!

Love these vintage silver plate filigree boxes!!  

I lined this with Victorian era antique silk velvet and embellished the flower with a vintage rhinestone. 

The charming Paris tag is included!

A sweet little round tin box turned
inspiration kit...full of delightful treasures!

Vintage tatting, rusty skeleton key, 3 amazing
silver foil German glass buttons, small paper rose, and some sweet handmade tags!

Can you tell I love vintage silver

This little basket is just
so charming!  It comes with the  vintage
doily, the Jeanne de Arc clip with tag, and two vintage rusty keys.


And finally, this is an antique vintage linen patriotic tag I finished last week!  It just makes me smile, and 
I hope it makes you smile too!!

The real silver German glass glitter "stars" have already begun to get their lovely tarnished patina!!

All of these will be available for purchase
in my Etsy shop at 2:00 today!

Stay cool and safe my friends, and have a wonderful weekend!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
