Roses


Yes I have a thing for roses! I love to paint them and love anything that has a rose on it. Today I moved some things around just playing and grouping things together. Fun putting the things I make together with the things collected. I have an eclectic style, but a strong draw to the Victorian era as you can see. I really do love many styles and different styles influence the creative side of life for me.





Pretty little bowl and plates makes me want to paint some glasses to go with it.

I love porches!

The weather was beautiful today so I decided to move a mirror from inside to outside on the front porch. I like it but think it now needs a vine of some kind with twinkly lights. 
I have been going junking a little more lately and found all the pillows in one store, they where really ugly individually, but when put all together, it works for me! 




I am still loving the battery candles!!!!!


Still a few things to do___ add some side tables and spray paint the coffee table and  maybe a few plants. This porch gets hot in the afternoon so I refer to it as the morning porch.

Tutorial Finished and In Store



I have a few tutorials in the works, but really happy to get this one finished. I tried a number of times to load it up to Etsy, but it would not take it because the file was to big. I put lots of pictures in my tutorials and I guess I went a little over board. Today I compressed the file and it worked. These little primitive angels are so much fun to make. They are made of coffee stained coffee filters and that makes them creamy wonderful! Keep them plain or add a little lace and a few pearls.

My Quick and Easy Way to Make Pom Poms

So many ways to make Pom Poms, but this is how I make them!
Hopefully you have a dresser with knobs
 
Tie yarn onto knob and wrap 30 times.
 
Tie a piece of yarn at each end and then one in the middle as tight as you can
 
I spaced them about an inch apart
 
Cut off knob
 
I am showing this part if the Pom Poms are going to be on an item that will get a lot of wear and tear. After taking them off the knob I will tie again really tight and then with a needle take a few stitches. This part is optional you can just tie.
 
Cut
Note _ For demonstration purpose I used a red yarn to tie with. Use same color yarn as Pom Poms 
 
Fluff with a needle and hair brush or just leave as is

Christmas 2016

It is hard to believe that Christmas is over. Really where does the time go! I decided to go with a white tree this year. I lost my beautiful white flocked tree to not storing it correctly. Never ever store a flocked tree in the box because the tree will turn yellow. Now I know! I found this one at Walmart and I love it! I love how it has lights already attached and the fact there is plenty of space to hang my many collected and handmade ornaments. For years I did not like tinsel, but now it is one of my favorite things It makes the tree so pretty even when the lights are off.
The old ornaments are so fragile and easy to break. I seem to lose a few every year and that is painful, but it gives me a good excuse to go in search of more.
This year while out junking I found the sweetest little porcelain Christmas scene
Details so sweet!
I never did finish doing the decorating I wanted to do, but that is how it goes sometimes.It has been very warm here in sunny Florida and that seems to effect how much I get done. We had some damage to the house from hurricane Matthew and that also had lots to do with the lack of enthusiasm. Thank goodness for Lilly and her excitement of the season, 
She does not understand why it does not snow here, so I asked her why she wanted snow and she said she wanted to make a snowman, no problem lets grab a few carrots and walk down to the beach and make a sandman.
Fun!

Doodling

Doodling tonight thinking about making the little pig into doll. The piggy bank is my inspiration.

One man's trash is another's treasure

I found this bunch of pieced pieces on the trash and they are finding their yummy vintageness into my pillow. How could anyone throw something so beautiful out!
I have always had a love for old things and it has remained  throughout my life. The hunt is just as much fun as the find. Adding more fish to the pillow and tiny yo yo . It's almost time to get the embroidery thread out, but still a little more stitching down to do.
