New work..... finally!!

I just finished this little tree. It is called reflection. It will be in my etsy shop this weekend.

This will be added then as well.

as will this.

A fun picture of the boys outside. It looks like they are being pulled up by invisable string.

Harrison showing off his super cool rock star jumps!

I found the warmth in an old quilt.

I love these bushes! They are so happy!

I can not get enough!

I am in love with vintage gas station numbers. Why? I have not a clue, I just love them, and the one below is mine!!!! I found it on the etsy store Fierce Whimsy .

Have you ever seen the show " American Pickers" on the History channel? If not and you love vintage things as much as I do..... it is a must. It comes on Monday night @ 9:00. I looove it!!
Check them out here antique archeology.
Really , watch the show . I am so jealous I am not able to do my own picking with them.

You know it is Spring when........

The daffodils bloom and you hear the crack of a baseball!

I know it looks like he is sneezing , however he just hit the ball!!!

A quiet morning........

We got to sleep in a tiny bit..... the best part was staying in PJ's until after 10:00. One went to early baseball practice so it was just me and the young one. I will not say little because he is just as big as his brother 2 1/2 yrs. older. He broke out the Buzz lightyear and played happily for at least an hour.

My only dilemma ...... Buzz was the next toy on the chopping block as far as our purge and clean goes. I guess I need to re-think it???

I am not sure if this piece is done or not..... I need to see what more it needs.

Still haven't found what I'm looking for......

Sound familiar..... yes I know it is not original. U2 did it first, however I really have not found it yet. What ? Well it is a classic wrap skirt. I love wearing skirts in the summer. Do they not make these anymore???

The above is courtesy of Spool . It was handmade of course. Now I can sew a little, however I really would prefer to buy one. They seem pretty easy to make , but I just do not have the time. I will continue my search, and if my hands have come up empty....... I will break out the machine. I just can not guarantee that it would last through the first wash!!!

One of my favorite places......

There is a place where I live that has the most incredable finds. It is only open one weekend every month..... and I go to every one of them. They change the entire decor around each time to keep things fresh. It is a huge barn that is filled to the brim with both vintage , salvage and new cottage chic items. If you are in Maryland and want to check it out it is well worth the visit.
Chartreuse and co. .

Although these hands are a new vintage type find.... I just might need to get one!!!

Friday ..... Hooooray!!!!

Well it is Friday!!!! I hope to get some creative time in this evening. I have been waking up early and doing chores, I make sure the dishes are done and beds and rooms picked up before we leave for school so that I do not get that freaked out panic feeling when I come home . So far so good!
I will have the above and two others posted hopefully tomorrow ( or later tonight) . My pics are not great because it is rainy out.
Enjoy the weekend!!!

I just did a trade with Paddyridge on etsy. Go check out her site. I love these little bowling pins!!!

I have just taken a long term sub assignment in my kids school ( I might have mentioned it in an earlier post!! ) . Anyway this week has been a bit crazy. I have 4 things to post in my shop and I am crossing my fingers that it will happen on Friday.

Finding the light......

It was a nice late afternoon..... the kind that gives you hope for spring. The sun not yet warm but welcomed none the less. Here is where I found the light.

Lots of stuff.....

Well, today I was very productive. I love these kinds of days. I can cross off that list that keeps clogging my brain and move on!

I am finding places for my beloved letters all over my house.

A nice even number in a cool color ( although you could call it a warm blue!)

I am not sure why I am so attached to rust and age and layers. I love the connection to other times perhaps. I always feel a bit out of touch with what is current...... age makes me feel comfortable. Hmmmm, I wonder what I will think of that statement in a few months when I turn 40!!!!

Remember this? I still need to finish the edges, but it will be done this weekend. I am not sure what I am doing with this yet...... I will keep you posted.
On another topic, I am doing a custom collage for a great gal Emily who happens to make the loveliest jewelry. We are actually doing an exchange . I am so crazy about the idea of doing artist trades. Emily also owns Vix Emporium in West Philly. So if you are in the area , check them out!

Another find.....

I love searching etsy for my little treasures. I found this little globe at oldohiofarmfinds . I was going to go and buy it, however someone else snatched it up!!

I have not shown much of my art ....... I have been super busy. I just took a long term sub position at my kids school. I keep telling myself that it is only 3 .5 months and everything will be o.k. . I have to get in gear and get myself organized. Anyway, I am working on 2 collages right now and hopefully I will be done by the weekend.

Another little find......
