Starting a new week

Hey Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend.   I have lots to share today.  First .. are a couple of cards created with the new "love mail" Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage.   Oh these images are so pretty.  You can see all the images on these double sided sheets  here.  I did a number of cards and tags, that I'll be sharing this week, using these new images.

Friday night we went to First Fridays Art Walk again.  My sister and brother-in-law came also. We all met for dinner and then headed to Wes's studio.   I have some photos from Friday night, that I want to share,but before that, I wanted to show you some "pretties" from my sisters house.  I wish I could just take you on a tour of her home, because every square inch is decorated so beautifully! 
This is just a tiny sampling of the vintage dishes she had collected.   


And look at these little darlings.

Speaking of my sis, these are some of the necklaces she had  for sale in the studio.

I have been too busy this past month to work on fun things to sell, but I did make some of these hair clips with vintage buttons.

Wes wanted to showcase my brother-in-laws photography this month. He had a number of them to show, this photo shows just a few.  I love his work.. so it would be hard to pick a favorite..but the one on the top ... SO  beautiful!

Sarah Hansen was showing her work in Amy's Studio this month.   Her handmade books and prints were amazing.

Each different studio has so many interesting things to look at.  The signage is fun huh?

yes.. lots of  ........"Interesting" things to look at. lol

It was a great start to the weekend.


Well they are actually talking snow for us again...but I'm only "thinking SPRING" :)

                        Have a wonderful start to your week!
