You do not run across people like Angela Harris every day, that is for sure. I purchased some beautiful tags from her shop on Etsy "YourAngil" and we started conversing. Next thing I know I'm opening another package from her filled with inspiring items. I gasped with delight and realized what an incredible giving person I had run across. Here is a woman who is constantly featured in Somerset magazines for her unique style and talent in her shop. I consider her famous. She is one of the many sellers on Etsy who have inspired me and supported me in this thing we all love to call art. Merci Beaucoup Angela - you are an angel.
Look what the mailman brought me today....it looks so beautiful and I wanted to share it with you. The La Musique is from Corey Amaro in France. I follow her blog "Tongue in Cheek" daily. She is selling these beautiful French Brocante items on the Somerset / Stampington website. I am so excited to have grabbed this. It is dated in 1912. Also, is the little leather bound book "Maximes" in excellent condition and each page has turned that lovely brown around the edges. All the ledger paper is from a shop on Etsy. God love these women who can part with these. I know I couldn't once I found them.

Here are one of the new finds from France - I bought them from a lovely French woman on Ebay one night. Religous little metal statues, they look Catholic. I love them, they watch over me in my craft room....hope they are not judging me. Too funny. If anyone at all has ever seen these before, please leave a comment, I'd appreciate it. It amuses me that they are displayed on a shabby chic shelf from Goodwill...I so love resale in any form.

My small Marie Antoinette collection and the altered bottles I'm getting ready to list on Etsy. I keep these in my book cabinet and enjoy looking at them as I pass it in the hallway. If they sell, they will be missed. The Marie Antoinette pictures will never be sold. It is my new "must have" LOL
