~ Treasures ~

This week has brought lots of new treasures from places far and near! I found these beautiful pink paper flowers at Michael's (of all places! I'm usually not a fan of their fake flowers) and some great old photos from the flea market in New York. Now...what to do with it all! Ahh....!
Once you have started seeing the beauty of life
Ugliness starts disappearing.
If you start looking at life with joy,
sadness starts disappearing.
You can not have heaven and hell together,
You can only have one.
It is your choice.

~ Sunday ~

I finished up this board book that I made for my mother-in-law. It's got pictures of the kids doing all the things we did this summer..and man did we do a lot! One of the good things about the school year is that is makes you break down time and appreciate where you are, where you've been, and where you're headed! I took some great pics of New York Thursday, Friday and Saturday. There is so much inspiration there! More to come...

Paperweight Creations

I decided to combine three favorites...paperweights, lines from Nancy Drew,
and vintage patterns.
This is what I got...
I really like how they turned out, so they will go to the shop.
Although it is hard to part with them...

Especially this one....
