Great display
Great letter cubes
A little burlap on outside furniture
How about these great books, 5 books for $112
Love their burlap pillows
One of these HUGE books, $125, ouch
bits and pieces of lace
Ribbon and buttons
Wonderful large "bird" plant holders
Nice Rust
I would love to have a cluster of these concrete orbs

B-day Sunset

Went to Monrovia Farmers Market last evening. The sky was so beautiful, big drops of rain fell, a 7 year old girl held her hands up and announced to the world " It DOES rain in So. California" everyone laughed...then ran for cover...pretty funny. We had my Birthday dinner at a new little restaurant...Delish...had the best asparagus soup

New Header

I thought I would change my header on my blog, it takes a lot of time to scan and crop pictures, and I still didn't get the size right...I put in 700 w and 192 h, then I went with 665 w, it didn't seem to make a difference...Anybody know what size to put in the black lines?

Black Crow and Pumpkin Charms

I just made a few of these Fall soldered charms. I've listed these two on Etsy. They are l 1/2 square, I drew my own design and used watercolors on 140lb. paper
Thats weird, they did Not show up like I planned. Anyway, there is a crow on one side and a pumpkin on the other...

The top and bottom picture go together and the two middle ones belong together.

Back from Vacation

We started our trip with a plan...that changed quickly. We decided to just hit the back roads and see where it would take us. We ended up at Lake Tahoe. Isn't it beautiful
In the back country we found this quaint general store
Beautiful sunsets
The entrance to Squaw Valley, the Olympics where held here 1960
Deans favorite fishing spot on the Truckee River
Lake Sabrina out of Bishop...snowing up high

We started out at Lake Isabella
Love me some country cows!
Its good to be back home

Sweet Birdie Pincushion

It's been over a year since I have put my birdies on Ebay. I'm starting up again, I'll have to start building up my business again, it was going so great, but, I got a bit burned out and then we moved from Oregon to So. Calif. I love it here and there is so many places to go, so much to see and do...I am leaving on vacation next week and I plan to take along some things to work on.
I plan to fill up my etsy and ebay with goodies
If you are new to my blog, my birdies have been featured in the Stampington Mag. that are listed on my sidebar. You can also get to my ebay by clicking on the ebay link.
This is a charming English Staffordshire China creamer
I dyed the wool to match the green in the leaves.

Fair Day

Only $1 to get in!! I LOVE taking photos of Ferris wheels, I don't want to go on them!
Do you try the fresh handmade tortillas before or after the ride??
I love love love this shot with the smaller one in the background. The day is so beautiful, and warm. I have such a fun time walking through the (air conditioned) buildings to see what everyone is trying to get you to buy...I could have bought a new bed, a massage chair, a sewing machine that hooks up to your computer...and a knife that costs $150 and.... you get the picture.

New Couch in the House

love this pillow from Target, I really didn't go so I took it back...but I have plans to paint/make a pillow similar, I like the idea
I showed a friend the swatch of fabric, she said this picture looks darker then what it is
The rug...I just couldn't pay $300 with cats, so I found this one at Lowes, on sale...$69
The dark maroon goes with my husbands leather chair
Stacey painted the walls a soft yellow
We wondered how our cabinet would look once we got the couch in...perfect
