My Mews

This is Gus. She is the smallest of our many cats. She is very special. I have promised myself that I would never get stuff done and grow artistically if I didn't create something everyday. I promise myself I am going to do it but then I can't make myself go down that long hallway to my craft room even though I really want to. I enjoy every minute in there. When I am at work at my job I am always wishing I was there in my craft room.
This is where Gus comes in. She LOVES the craft room. She likes to prowl or sit in the chair with me and check out what I am doing. But you're wondering, how does that make her my mews(muse)? Every time I walk towards the craft room she runs ahead of me eager as any puppy to get in the room. Usually that isn't where I am headed but she is so eager to go that I feel guilty if I don't at least take her in there once a day. She searches through stuff and finds stuff I have forgotten about. Her favorite craft supply is a nice chenille stem but she is also fond of a good foam backed rubber stamp and can play with one for hours. If she had thumbs she would probably be making stuff right along with me. She is my mews!

Top 'o the Morning

Ok I know it isn't even March yet so this might be a little premature for St Patrick's day but I was in Fla last week, Very cold, and discovered these leprechauns at a flea market. They are ceramic and probably hand painted but I fell in love with them and with my new theory of buying things that i love I know i had to have them. At $1 apiece I thought i could swing it. Of course that doesn't mean I have finished with Valentine's day. I am working on a paperdoll on a heart candy box. It will be for next year if I can still find it then! Now I am off to babysit. More crafting and card pics to come soon I hope.

The Loot

Well I have finished my Paperdoll in a Box for my class but will show it next time. I messed up my blog banner so have to figure out how to fix it soon, but 5 More Days and I am going to Florida. Have bunches to do. Anyway after visiting so many wonderful Vintage blogs of people that love to go to Estate sales, garage sales, flea markets and thrift stores and share their finds i thought I would today. I went to a thrift store today and got this wonderful stuff except the shoes. They were $2 at Walmart and they're green! Who could resist. So these are my wonderful finds of the day. The tray($1) is metal and made in england. I have never seen a paisley tray before so I had to buy it. And I keep falling across yellow pitchers($1 each) so I had to have them too. Almost forgot the other great find. A bag of these little bottles about4 inches tall. don't know what I will do with them but they sure are cute. I am sure I can find a craft project that they are perfect for!
