Bringing It Back

When I saw this fabulous aqua ticking, I knew I had to use it to make a fun, coastal pumpkin, that just brings the sea back
to the home.

Here is the new design!

Just makes me smile!  
Think I have to have one
for myself!! 

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!
I am ALL better!!  Woohoo!

Have a fabulous week!

Blissful Whites Wednesday linky party will be up on Tuesday night!!

Uh-Oh~~ Computer Crash

Hi Everyone!
Happy Fall!!!

I am happy to say that I am all better!!

But I am sad to say that my computer crashed last night.
I am doing this on an old computer that is difficult to work on.

Just want to let you know that there won't be any 
Blissful Whites Wednesday until we get our other computer back.

Thanks so much...just save those fabulous whites of yours for next week, OK??

Thanks so much for all of your kindness, love and prayers!

Have a wonderful week, and know that I appreciate each of 
you so very much!!

Hugs and Love,

This has never happened to me before!!
Going to the Dr. tomorrow if it's not gone!!

I am trying to get some R & R, but I am
also trying to catch up with shop orders!

Just had to share these cuties

 Vintage chenille feels so wonderful,

Seaside Fall

Happy Monday, Friends!

Still battling this bug, but doing ok!!
Victory is close!!  

Took a few minutes and whipped up this sweet,
more natural look for a seaside fall.

It makes me smile...

I can even imagine my toes in the sand!

Faux Love!

You can find faux pumpkins in almost every shape,size, and color, in most stores at this time of the year.

Some are what I call "tacky faux".
Some are simply charming!

I took these little buttery and glittery faux 
pumpkins and gave them some love! Found these
at WalMart of all places!!

It's quick and just have to find or make some great embellishments!!

I copied an 1800's French invoice onto card stock for the tags, and inked the edges.  Then added a copper grommet.

Add seam binding bow, bling and you're all set!

Go try some!
Get your Fall on!!
It'll be here soon!!

Have a wonderful week!

And don't forget to enter 
It will close Wednesday
at 8:30 pm EST, and I will announce the 
winner on Thursday!!

Hugs and joy to you!

and will have antique gold mesh ribbon accents!

Can't wait to finish and show you,

Have a fabulous Friday and weekend!!

A Touch of Shabby!

Hope you're enjoying your holiday weekend!!

It has been so good for me and my family!

I actually took yesterday off from the first full day off since pumpkin season came along, and the weather has been sooo beautiful.

Going to get out in it in just a little bit, but wanted to share my touch of shabby pumpkin with you!

I love how the colors all look together on this one!  Makes me think of lattes for some reason!  Creamy goodness, I guess!!

The trim on the tag, and the doily are both vintage.  I love incorporating a little history into my creations!

Vintage textiles just add character,
don't you think?

Have a wonderful day!
And thank you all for being such
great bloggy friends!
I appreciate you!!

I'll announce my Fabulous Fall giveaway tomorrow night with my Blissful Whites Wednesday post!!
