Adventures with Advent








Went to Pickled Tink and make this advent calendar. I fell in love with theirs in the shop. Took the class and made my own. I had so much fun making the daily charms to add to each day. I love baby Jesus and Mary. I could not wait to make it. I love this calendar. Hope you do, too. xo, juls

Sentimental things

Well, how are you? I'm so happy you are here. I want to show you these amazing photos that I took photos of. They belonged to my Mother in Law, Lucile. She just passed away and we went to her home for the funeral/mass. When I say Lucile was one in a million, it is true. I will miss her stories and wisdom.
The ballerina is Lucile, we believe. Look at that dress. It is a birthday cake. Have you seen anything like it? Anyone know anything about it? And the elegant woman is Lucile's grandmother. She hung in Lucile's livingroom. The lady was a hat or dressmaker, in Paris, I believe. Aren't they stunning? I see lot's of possibility with collage, art, cards, etc..ummmm

UNFORGETTABLE MAMMOTH

I'm on a special assignment with my job in Mammoth, California. The assignment was to last three weeks. It will go on for a few more yet. I miss posting my little milestones. I hope you all do not forget me. I will be back home, up and running, posting, decorating, arting -- is that a word, really? -- very soon. I hope you all are well and happy. xo juls
