Sharing My Passion

Yesterday, as I entered the Barnes & Noble Bookstore,
I recalled the email that started it all.
The email that invited me so graciously
to submit an article to
Artful Blogging
by Stampington's Somerset Studios
Telling my story of
 how a moment or treasure
 inspires me to post. 
In this fast paced world -
In this uncertain world -
My only desire was to bring a bit of happiness to your day.
Letting my images and hopefully my words 
bring a tiny bit of inspiration to you.
I hope these images of my article
give you a peek of how it all turned out.
I am surrounded by such talent in this
Winter Artful Blogging issue
Including Kathleen of Faded Charm
Debra Oliver of Common Ground
I am honored and feel very blessed
to have had the opportunity to tell my tale.
There are those of you out there 
that know you are such a big part of me.
This is for you.
This is for all of you.
Merci from the bottom of my heart.

Studio Time

 I've been working very hard to keep it fresh in my shops 
 Not to mention I love to mix it up and try new ideas
Fabric books I recently made and sold.
This fabric book style is so very popular 
and I tend to create them from time to time.
I hope you've enjoyed a few soft whites!

A Sharing of Greys

I'm loving the vintage tin pans I've been finding lately.
 A found religious print at Brimfield by my friend Michelle,
that is so beautiful, I made gift tags with it.
Wrapping a few orders with a grey dey theme.
Hope you've enjoyed this

Reliving Brimfield Memories

 All the oohs and aahs of a Brimfield Day
Walking from tent to tent with Michelle
will forever be etched in my mind
 All I had to leave behind will haunt me
Praying I make it back next year...
 along with a huge truck!
It's all you ever dreamed of and then some
Even Jeanne d'Arc welcoming you.
Until next year Brimfield & Michelle.

A Grey Dey Thursdey Trey

What is on your nightstand or dresser? 
I like to collect new found pieces in my grey tray from Chicago.
Hoping to unlock some creativity ...
 Sweet crocheted hearts by a friend,
I treasure them so much.
Try collecting your vintage and French finds in a tray.
See what inspiration comes your way.

For the Love of Grey

Let's start this Grey Dey Thursdey
with some of my favorite Paris images.
I took these pictures at the
 Père Lachaise Cemetery

Gorgeous and eerie at the same time.
I recommend visiting when you are in Paris.
It is full of la famous!
I purchased this key at the famous Paris Flea Market
Marché aux Puces St-Ouen de Clignancourt
To this day, I cannot remove the price.
It reminds me of that day.
Closer to home....
A collection of vintage finds and my crinkled grey ribbon.

I hope you've enjoyed this 
as I link up and join in

A Blissful Whites Wednesday in October

Fall is officially here.
Bring on the boots, sweaters and cool weather.
Although it will be a bit before I can actually wear a sweater,
I do enjoy October, as our days & nights are so much cooler.
I find I spend less time outside at the pool or on the patio
and more time in my studio creating pretties.
Locket necklace is in my shop.
Newly created pieces soon to be in my shop.

French ephemera packets
Linking up to
with Becky and friends!

Many thanks to all my new followers!
You all make blogging worth it!
