4 states and 4 planes later....
What an incredible Thanksgiving I had, flying with a friend,
back to our parent's homes for a short vacation.

I'm just now catching up, wrapping up orders
and with a new giveaway for December in the works.

The man of the house was NOT supposed to be putting up
Christmas decorations outside, on a ladder, without me.
Hmmm...but he did and they are beautiful.

Sweet French Friday

As I opened my mail yesterday
....there it was...
the coveted French Fabric Flower Wreath.

All the way from France
 via Simone
Her online shop is wonderful and full of French treasures.
****
Other packages had arrived and as I slowly laid everything out....



it occured to me,
perhaps they had found their way home.
 Romantic and Rusty
Not sitting in a box
but admired once again.
I believe I will just admire them as they are for a few more days.
 Wishing you all a fantastic weekend ahead.
Be happy - Be content
most of all Be yourself.

Cheers, Rhonda

Handmade with Love A Scapular Book


It's no secret I adore antique and vintage religious tresors, like the one above.
Not only are they displayed in my home,
they inspire me so much.


I created this very personal fabric book
because of my love for scapulars.


When you collect antique laces and fabrics,
it doesn't take much time to pull it all together.


However, this little 2.5 x 2.5 inch fabric book took hours to create.


Smaller creations are very tedious and time consuming
but so worth it!


If you enjoy the little things in life
and I do so very much,
you will like this petite book.


I hand stitched some pages and machine sewed the rest.


Pulling out the vintage, the worn, the tarnished pieces.


Keeping the tattered appearance and distressed look 
of a well loved antique piece.


Made with love,
made from the heart.


Religious beliefs are very personal.
What pleases the eye is very personal.
I find these little creations very personal 
and they will be in my blog shop only.
I will list 3 this month.


I hope something beautiful and heartwarming
touches you today, wherever you may be.

My Shabby Petite Cabinet

November is a great month to start venturing out for lunch.
I work full time and my lunch hour is usually spent
catching up with blogs or creating a bit at my desk.
So, when I found a thrift store so close to my office,
I quickly pulled in and started hunting.
I found this sweet shabby cabinet for $8.00.
I quickly filled it up with my favorites.
Petite Cabinet Love
Now it can be displayed anywhere in the house, it's small and will fit.
*************

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend, I know I am.
We are busy getting ready for a family visit
and since our guest room has slowly become a collection room, sigh, 
it's purging time. Wish me luck.

Soon in my shop....

Cheers, Rhonda
