SWEET SURPRISES FROM A SWEET FRIEND: Part One......

Everyone loves a surprise, right?  That's what I got this Monday! My sweet friend, Bryanna, sent me two packages (to my delight!)  I can not believe her generousity!  In the 1st box, I found not one, not two, not three, but FOUR, beautiful necklaces! I was actually giddy as I opened each one! My poor hubby, who had handed me the packages, looked at me like I had lost my mind! You know how it is..they just don't get it!! He just smiled & went back to reading his boring mail! Anyway, I absolutely love them! In these pictures, you will see two of them...a precious little girl and a sweet little bird sitting in a nest!  They are so gorgeous!  She is an amazing artist! They are so detailed with rhinestone jewelry, tiny ribbon bows & the chains are just gorgeous, too!Please stay tuned for part two of "Sweet Surprises From a Sweet Friend" and I will show you the other two necklaces and also what was inside the other box. Thank you Bryanna, I am so touched by your thoughtfulness!

I AM A PRETTY, PRETTY PONY!!

This is an adorable little pink and aqua "Wonder" pony that I found at an antique shop a couple of months ago. I thought she would be perfect for the baby shower I am hosting for my niece, Autumn, this Sunday, to celebrate the upcoming birth of her first baby! She and her husband, Wes are having a precious, baby girl. The little pony was missing her handles so I added a sweet baby headband made by Bryanna Lenan. I also ordered the baby charm necklace from Bryanna. She really makes some pretty items.

The colors I am using for the shower are guess? pink & aqua! I hope it all turns out pretty!

Where does the time go???

I really don't know....it seems to fly away on invisible wings! I have discovered that the older I get, the faster it goes! When I was a little girl, I couldn't wait for my birthdays, now I dread them.  I was the oldest grandchild on my mother's side and I would flaunt it in my cousins faces! Now, they look at me and giggle about it! What goes around comes around, right!!lol
I have been busy, though. My sweet mother had major surgery and stayed with me for a while to recover. I really enjoyed the days we spent together.  My Uncle James, her brother, wanted her to stay with him a while so I had to share her with him.  I didn't want to but I knew that they would enjoy each others company & they are getting on up there in age & need to spend quality time together.
I have also been busy with my projects for Cassandra's event in Tampa "Marie's Danse des Fleurs" on February 25th -27th. http://mariesdansedesfleurs.blogspot.com/. I joined a M.A. shoe swap and a gift bag swap. My shoe turned out really pretty but I haven't taken any pics yet.
I have also been working on swaps for Kim Caldwell's event "Moulin Rouge" on March 17th -20th.http://artisticbliss.typepad.com/ and that is keeping me busy, in a fun way, of course!!
Today I had the 2nd part of a root canal.  YIKES!!! My endontist couldn't finish it last Tuesday so I got to go back today for more! My roots had calcified and he said it was like chiseling through marble.  He's a sweet guy, though.  It just hurts like a...............!!!
So here are just a few pictures I have to share with everyone.  I take lots of pictures and even got another new camera for Christmas(before finding out that there was nothing wrong with my old camera, it was the lense) but I like new things so that's alright.  The pictures are of my sweet cat, Stevie and a half doll perfume bottle that I made. I wasn't finished posting pictures but for some reason, it isn't letting me add anymore!!!

"HAPPINESS IS A COLLAGE"

 
I LOVE MAKING COLLAGES! Guess it's just the fact that so many things I love can be put in one place to look at all at once,  kind of like creating a vignette, which you might know, is one of my favorite things to do.  I have been so busy lately and have not taken the time to blog.  When I make a collage or mosaic, I feel as if my bloggy friends can see what I have been up to, without a lot of posts. In this collage you can see what I have been creating. I can honestly say that I have had lots of fun making these treasures.  It's very time consuming but I have loved each minute!!
