Playing In My Studio

Happy Memorial Day to you all!

My heart overflows with thanks for all those
who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.

May God richly bless all of their families
and friends.


Our day has been quiet as we had our festivities yesterday.


That means I got a little studio time!

These fun creations are hot off of my workbench!

A charming vintage silver plate baby
cup filled with treasures from the sea!

Makes me smile!

Love the spoon handle, and tarnished patina!

And I went shabby, too!
I have always loved creating shabby tags!

Layers of goodness!
Perfect for a wedding gift or
a little something for a special

And tattered, too

The "sea cup" and the tag are both 
one of a kind and now available in the shop!!

Have a wonderful week, my friends!
Share your smile!

Sailing, Sailing!

My sailboat design and production came to 
a halt when unexpected company arrived last
week! I will be back at it tomorrow!

But here is my newest creation!
A little vintage...a little shabby...


A whole lotta fun!

This one is also petite, {and now available in the shop} but I am going to
be making much larger ones, too!

Can't wait!!

What have you been up to??

I am partying with Linda,
over at Coastal Charm's Show and Share!  Hope you'll go check it out!

Have a wonderful week!

A New Love~Driftwood Sailboats!!

OK, this is just too much fun!
I haven't had time like this to create in
like forever, it seems!!

And these charming driftwood sailboats 
are my new obsession!

What do you think?

I'm thinking I might actually make
some for me to keep!!

When I sit down to create, I have a few
raw materials, and a design in my mind, but I don't know until I'm finished how it will turn out and that is just the best!!  Sometimes I am bummed, and have to start over, but not very often.

I used the wonderful 80-120 yo hand loomed 
Euro linen for the sail, and the white patch is vintage French linen.  Both are absolutely my favorite textiles to work with!!

I have the feeling that I will be designing
lots more of these!!!  I see big ones with 
more bling, lace, ticking sails, sets, etc!!

My hubby actually recommended the 
grommets, and I love how they look!
He's good like that!

There will be 5 of these
sweet flower tags in the shop soon!

 The Euro linen is so versatile!

 Well, back to my workbench!
Hope you are really enjoying
your day!  

Hugs and Joy to You!
