It worked! Plus, a free Art and Soul ticket...

Eureka! Browsing the internet this week for some aged vintage millinery for a project. My issue: it can be hard to use those lovelies once you get them...they are one of a kind and so beautiful. So, I went to the craft store and got some super-cheese stark white ones and soaked them in tea. I was a little afraid the hot water would make them come unglued, but...wha-laa! I love them. And they were inexpensive!
Last weekend, the family indulged me on a trip out to my favortie antique mall. Came back with some lovely things for projects. I know, these days I have been collecting more than crafting. But I am slowly working!
It looks like I will not be able to make it to Art and Soul (sigh). I have a ticket for the journal session on Thursday, 5/20. If you live near Hampton Virginia (or if you don't!) and you'd like my ticket, please email me. ( I'm determined to get to an art retreat one of these days...Maybe I will see you there!

Celebrating a Big Birthday...and...Catching Up

(sigh) Celebrating my baby's tenth birthday today. TEN! I cannot believe it. Now everyone is on double digits. A mixture of joy and sadness.
More mixture of joy and sadness...Art and Soul Retreat! My invitation came the other excited! I'm only signed up for one workshop, but still! Now, cosmic forces are conspiring to keep me away. Stay tuned. There may be a freebie headed your way.

I am lucky enough to have a hubby who will entertain my love of dressing up. We went out to a facy fundraiser the other night. These pictures are reminders of a lovely evening.

What a treasure I found the other day in a fun new boutique! I love these gals and their jewelry...right up my alley!

We are enjoying unseasonably warm weather these days. Summer is coming. Soon, everyone will be out of school and our thoughts can turn to lazy afternoons. So thankful.
