Findings and letting go

Hi All,

I was hit hard emotionally recently. My Hub and I are a Foster/adopt family. We want to "add on." Well, we were able to hang out with this little one for a few days. He stole my heart. There is a happy ending for him. Rest assured. But we are on the list still. So we carry on...

Up and away. We went to the Balloon Races. You get up at the crack of dawn and watch the assension. It is really fun.
Here are some thrift findings:

An awesome vintage baby buggy. (See, I got it bad.) Pictured with a wrought iron tiered stand. There is this sweet pewter holder with a twig on top. Love it. And this danty pink tiered holder. It sits right on my studio desk.
And a little braggin' . I learned to make crochet rugs last Friday. This is my first one. I'm "hooked." hahahahah I am going to paint the dining room now. I took before pics.......xo juls

small favors

Baby Showers, aren't they sweet? Three women from church are having babies. The Womens' Ministries I'm in is throwing the shower. I've been busy making these mint/holder small favors for the ladies in attendance. It has been fun working in my new studio. I love the space. And the Lifesavers Mints fill the room with a spearminty smell.

Sorry for the glare. Sort of like a matchbook with a mint inside.

And here is this art collage I did. Isn't she dazzling? Well, she made need some more dazzle. But it was the first canvas I painted. Fun.
