Dress Up!

Ahhhh... to be 8 years old again :~). This was an impromptu dress up moment. My daughter was playing with some of my vintage goodies, including this wonderful dress given to me by my friends Kimberlee and Sandra Edgar. The yellow tole tray was a thrift shop find and will soon be hanging in my daughter's room. Isn't it wonderful that our children afford us the opportunity to become young all over again?

It's nearly Summer!

Peace Doves Candy Container

I made this piece several years ago, and have really enjoyed having it as a part of my collection. It is a 2 piece candy container, as you can see. It is painted in the exact same design on both sides. I had much fun designing this piece, with the pendant flag in the center. Figuring out how to have the flags fold and wave was a challenge!
Can you believe that July is almost here?? Yikes! Happy Summer everyone!

A special visitor!

Isn't he just gorgeous?

It's been years since we've had a great blue heron in our yard, the kids and I really enjoyed watching him, even though he ate some of our fish!
