Don't Hate Me

I am apologizing up front to those of you who may be offended by this post.  

But can I also add that I just couldn't help myself!??

I found this scrumptious, soft, green, velvety fabric that just kept calling to me each time I walked by my fabric stash.

I simply could resist no longer!
I scooped it up like a crazed pumpkin
maniac,{which I am, BTW} and here is 
the end result...


I am in love with this little cutie!
What do you guys think?
{besides that I truly am crazy}

I had to take a couple of minutes to share...hope you all survived some ahhum...fall moments here at Timewashed!

OK...back to summer!!
Hope you're finding a lovely way
to keep cool!

Thanks for indulging the crazy lady!!

In My Studio

Hi Friends!

Hope you're having a good day!  I am!  

I have been in my studio for awhile working on new shop inventory.

 I love this shade of blue.  It's a French 
blue and I love how it looks with ivory
and the contrast of the kraft brown box!

Mini gift wrap kits that include
these elements will be listed in
my shop tomorrow!

Also worked on these sweet shabby chic rose gift tags for all you pink lovers out there!

I just added these to the shop!

Have a wonderful evening!

Needful Things

Do you have any "Needful Things"?

You know what I mean...those things you don't really need, but really kind of need at the same time... those lovely little luxuries that make your soul sing? 

Needful Things!

I certainly don't NEED stacks of vintage doilies, and buttons on their original cards...but it delights my soul to have them, and have beautiful pieces of history to enjoy.

The hours of artistry and handwork that went into creating each doily doesn't go unappreciated at home with me.

And the little gems created
from the bounty of the ocean, just make
me smile.

What about you?  What are some of your
Needful Things?

The giveaway ends tomorrow!!
You can click the photo to go enter!

Thank you to all of you who made me aware
that the button has the wrong month on it!!

Hope you have a lovely week!

Hugs to you all!

Jeanne de Arc Inspiration!

Happy Monday!

Aw...come on and's a new day...
a clean slate just full of possibilities!!!


On this cloudy Florida morning, I am back in my studio working on my new line of gift wrap coordinates!

I took a little inspiration from Jeanne de Arc Living for this pretty dove gray set!

I am really loving the soft, clean look of the gray and white!

I am always a little surprised by what happens when I sit down to create!  It's such a fun adventure!!  

I usually begin by just looking through
my stashes.  I pick one item, and build
my designs from there!

I'm hoping your week is fabulous!

So glad you chose to make me and my
little corner of the world part of it!

Blissful Whites Wednesday linky
party will be posted tomorrow night!
Come join the fun!!

OH YEAH!!!  Almost forgot!
Be sure to pop by tomorrow night for a GIVEAWAY announcement!!

Right Now

Hello Friends!
Sunday blessings to you!

You know, every day each of us experience a myriad of things, some of which are very difficult and challenging.

Some are remnants of things from the past.
Some are unfolding right now.
Some aren't even a reality yet; mostly fear and worry at this point.

I find that when I am in the midst of strife, or even just having a hard day, if I can give thanks for where I am...

right here...right now

somehow my perspective is changed, and my burden lightened, if even for just for a
few moments.

Most of the time, there is someone out
there who is in a much worse situation 
than us, and a little perspective is all
we need to get through.

May your day be filled with joy,
and your burden lightened by a thankful heart!

Too Much Fun!

Hey There!!
Hope you are having a great Saturday!

I am having so much fun in my studio playing with this and that!  Here is a new inspiration/gift wrap kit I just put together!!

Now available in my shop!
What have you been up to today?

Hope you're having fun, whatever it is!!

Friday in my Studio

Happy Friday!!
There has been so much going on around here!
My shop and my blog have been so neglected!

I have missed interacting with all of you, and missed creating!!

I am working on getting back in the swing of things, though, and have begun work on a new line of gift wrap elements for the shop.

Here is a little sneak peek at what I've been playing with!

I have always believed that the packaging
of gifts is almost as important as the 
gift itself, and take great delight in
wrapping up presents for friends and family!

I also love the idea of using cast off
items, and things that can be used again.
Some of the elements will be sold individually, and some in gift wrap kits.
Simple beauty is my inspiration!  

Lovely vintage trims and bits
and bobs will be included, of course!!
Everything looks better with a touch of vintage, you know??

and OK...
I know it is just the beginning of summer,
but I just made my first pumpkin for fall!!

I'll have a whole new line to choose from,
by the time fall rolls around, and will bring back some well loved styles like these French inspired ones, too!
Hope your weekend is fabulous!
I will be creating, creating, creating!
Praying for the firemen, and all those in
the path of the fires in Colorado Springs.
Blessings and hugs!

I will be sitting right on that sand
behind that life guard stand,

just soaking in all the beachy goodness!!

I'll let you know how it was!!

Blissful White Wednesday
