More Fairy Dust & New On Etsy

The purple bottle is my Dog Violet Fairy Dust and the pink is my Wood Sorrell Fairy Dust. These tiny bottle are from the late 1940's. They were salt and pepper shakers covered in wicker to look like wine jugs. I stripped off the wicker and voila! I think they look splendid all dolled up.  These will be available this week at Bliss Bakeshop inside Fancy That.

New On Etsy!

I am just about to post my Shamrock Garland on Etsy. This little beauty has stolen my heart. Everything from the embossed, hand stamped flags to the jute cord remind me of St. Patrick's Day. I think the 1798 London Herald is the perfect background to for these hand stamped shamrocks.

Downton Abbey

I am in love  . . . with Downton Abbey. Oh my it is sooo good. Julian Fellows is brilliant. He has created a story that is so gripping I dread the coming of the ending credits.

Julian Fellows is so talented. He is an actor, director, writer. He wrote Gosford Park, Young Victoria,  and Downton Abbey and much much more. But I love him the best as Kilwillie in 
Monarch Of The Glen. He is so funny.

What a talented fellow :)
If you haven't started watching Downtonw Abbey I would highly suggest trying to find the episodes and getting caught up.

Spring Is In The Air

Hi there,

I have been working hard on a custom order garland with a Spring theme.
This garland was a complete change for me. Each dress in the garland is a different color. Usually I stick to rotating prints and colors. But how can you choose from Spring colors? There are so many pretty pastel colors in the Spring palette. I love daffodil yellow and fresh green grass and lavender . . . oh my.

My next custom order is a Valentine's theme with the word LOVE.

Then on to a really cool idea. A garland to celebrate a birthday trip to a tropical beach but I can't say more in case the recipient of the gift is a follower of my blog. That would be bad to let the cat out of the bag.

My Man Thursday

Colin Farrell!!

Yes, he has made some mistakes in his life and yes, he has had some bad hair and yes, he has made some really dumb movies but  . . .I think he's still a good actor.
And he's kinda cute

A few of his good movies that are worth seeing are:
The New World
Phone Booth
Minority Report
Falling For A Dancer

A Gift For A Dear Friend

Here is a gift idea for a special friend. 

My friend Kim grow up in a lot of different places but one place is special to her~ Seaside, Oregon. 

So when her birthday rolled around in June I wanted to give her something that reflected this special time in her life.  

Lewis and Clark standing guard.

Phillips Candy Kitchen

She has wonderful memories of working in Phillips Candy Kitchen and spending time at the beach. So on a trip to Seaside I collected knick knacks from the area and made them into a collage for her. And here it is.

Each little square holds a vintage image or clipping with a sea theme and or a treasure from the area. 
She loved the collage and has it hanging in her house.  

The candy is fake so it won't rot but the wrapping is from Phillips. I just had to eat the taffy inside. :)
