Helen, Georgia

Well we're here in lovely Helen, Georgia staying at the Loreley Timeshares. The grounds are beautiful this time of year with lots of green stuff, flowers and geese. We are thrifting a lot and have made some great finds. I am using windows 7 so I don't really know what I am doing with pics but here are a few. The moving valentine and old card came from the Murphy NC flea market yesterday. More to come soon. Happy Spring!

Card Swap

Got my cards from Missy's card swap(see Sidebar) yesterday. They are great. Not a disappointing one in the bunch. Here are a couple of pics. I have been making stuff slowly. I really want to get in there and get to work but life keeps getting in the way. I am going to Helen, Ga to meet my parents on Monday and spend a week of Thrifting and maybe a little crafting. Then Friday we're are moving on to North Carolina to see my daughter the vet(homeless parrot on side bar). Looking forward to a great week. Will post pics of my thrifting finds and perhaps some works of art too. Have a great week!

New Cards

Well I was finally able to stay home ALL DAY! Of course this will be the last day for about a month but I enjoyed it. All the new goodies made me really want to make cards and I did. The owl card was a challenge to use a border punch in a masculine card. I used my Martha Stewart eyelet border. Who'd have thought it would work out? Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

Goodies in the Mail

No this isn't blog candy. It's great stuff and it's all for ME! I got a notice in the mail box that I had a package. I thought it was from the card swap so I was happy about it but when i got to the PO it was a big box that contained these goodies. It was from my wonderful daughter and husband who live far away. I am so thrilled with it. The box is very large and has Hydrangeas and birds on it(love both) and it even had Prima flowers in it. I have been wanting some of these but not able to afford them. It is a great gift and it is all stuff I love. Hope everyone has as happy a day!

Saturday's Vintage Finds

I went to Garage sales and Church sales with my DIL and 2 year old granddaughter. It was a fun day and I found some vintage stuff. I love these Polka dot coffee mugs. I will use them to hold something in my craft room. I have a confession to make. I love cardboard boxes, especially old ones. This pin box has such nice printing, graphics and colors and then it was filled with old beads and earring parts. I also like tins a lot and this blue dutch looking one is very nice. I found a lot of seam binding which works great as ribbon in card and dollmaking. It was a good day. Hope everyone has a good week.
