Eye Patch Pattern

A wonderful friend of mine has a Sweet little Grand baby that needs to wear an eye patch to help correct & strengthen her vision. She said that her eye patches were $10.00 a piece. I took one apart and made a pattern, I made 17 of them for about $10.00 total in just under 3 hours. I also found a free pattern on line here from a mom that designed them for her little one.

H is for Horseys, Having Fun & The Happy Car

We love to feed the miniature Horses down the road at my neighbors house. Today it was Cricket that enjoyed the treats we brought. She was born in June this year and we met her when she was just a couple of days old. The happy car was a fun find that my Girlfriend and I came across at a barn sale this summer. We got allot of Funny looks as we had to test it out & laughed so hard I almost wet myself. I was happy to buy it for $75.00 & I found out that it is from the 50s & they sell in antique shops for near $800.00. As you can see Sweet Lady Long legs can make it move & she says she can't wait until she can ride with her Sister! A giant wooden spool is the backdrop for the last picture. A wonderful Day with my G-Baby it was.

Love This!

I ordered this T-shirt and I recieved it Today. Someone in my Family will be getting one soon!

Mushrooms anyone?

I Like to bring a little outside into my House especially in the cooler months. My daughter & I spotted these Morel Mushrooms at our favorite thrift store near denver a few weeks ago.
They are handmade and very heavy. I added a rusty brown patina & they now reside in my living room.

Beautiful Words & Art

This is a Treasury on Etsy that my Escape necklace was lucky enough to be included in!

An Artist I Admire

I bought this card for my Daughter & it was created by Jaime, She is a talented Artist.

Go visit her sites and see how amazingly creative she is!

Bobby Pin Barrettes

Take 5 minutes & Create these Sweet hair Treats. I used Canvas scrapbooking brads with soft colors & vintage designs on them, Bobby pin sets with a round metal disk to attach the brads to & E6000 clear industrial strength glue. You could also use old buttons or rhinestones. They cost me about 60 cents each but if you buy your supplies in bulk they can be made for pennies.

Life is Art

A Beautiful Blue Jay was singing loudly as it was perched on the arm of my patio chair Today.

It made me think of My Mom. She was an Artist and she also Loved Birds. I thought it was very appriopriate the blue jay chose my "life is Art" chair to sit on and sing to us from.

I love you Mama & Miss you so.

Pine Cones, Peanut Butter & Bird Seed

It was a wonderful Autumn Day last week as we created the old Pine cones covered in Peanut Butter and rolled in Bird seeds. My G-Baby was excited to hang them & watch as they were quickly devoured by the birds. I also enjoyed making her Dress, It is a simple, fun pattern you can order here
