Tiffany Blue Bag

Having fun with Tiffany!
Here is a bag I made.
Gotta love Tiffany!
I visited Tiffany's in Palm Beach. NICE!!

Playing With Paper

Happy Sunday to you!
I have been having fun playing with my many images that I have collected over the years. SO I decided to make gift tags with them. I love them and they are great to tie onto a pagkage or anything around the house you want to label. I especially like the crinkled seam binding used for ties.
I hope you like them too!
They are available in my Etsy shop.

Wendy Bentley Fabric Designs

I would like to take a minute to show you some aprons I made with fabric designed by Wendy Bentley. I recentley had the pleasure of meeting her and her wonderful family. Wendy designs fabric for Timeless Treasures.  Here are a few of the aprons.
This is called All Things Good

This is the reverse side

This is Lift Your Spirits

Here is the Reverse

This is my favorite, again All Things Good. I do love daisies and
this one is very flattering and feminine. Do you like?
Wendy also designed my Blog Header and also my Etsy shop banner. She is truly a fabulous graphic designer. You can check out her blog at
to see what else she has designed.

Lavender Love

I love Lavender and grow it in my garden. I also make lavender sachets. Here is one I made recently.
I think it is so sweet and smells so good too.

Getting To Know Me

If you are wondering what this blog is going to about, well a little of anything. I am a married working mom of 4 and I work 45 hours a week. My kids are grown now. My youngest is 19 years old.
If you are wondering what kind of style I have, well I don't really have A STYLE I like everything from romantic shabby chic to down and dirty grungy thing. Fine silver to brass. One thing for sure though is I LIKE TO MAKE THINGS. Let me show you some of the thing I have made.
I really liked this bracelet of lucite flowers and crystal
and sterling silver.
