Lest You Think I've Not Been Up To Much...

Haven't been blogging about my craftiness the past few weeks. Busy enjoying the summer and all it's opportunities for relaxation. But I've still been busy. Made the box above for a friend's birthday - full of trinkets and treasures.

I've tried to keep my hands of etsy lately, but I couldn't

resist this small vintage set of drawers. To me, the warn look of it

makes it all the better.

Made a special card for a friend using some vintage advertisements.

Who wouldn't be honored by a Clever Hostess Award?

Lastly, this summer scented candle was the perfect project for a 'happy summer' gift. I especially love old beach photos and here was a perfect chance to use one.

Hope your summer has been full of inspiring projects, too!

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl

Today was my daughter's 14th birthday. I hate to be cliche, but where does the time go? No, seriously. I am not being rhetorical. Where does it go? She left for Field Hockey camp this morning before I got up (thanks, Hubby!) and wasn't home til almost nine o'clock. I went to see the last 30 minutes of her game. Watching her in the land between little girl and, well, bigger girl. I thought about the days to come when I may not even see her on her birthday. I'll just leave pathertic messages on her voice mail. Or worse, texts. (sigh)

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl.
