15 Happy Years!!
So happy to celebrate being married to Sweet Husband for 15 years!! Thank you, my dear sweet husband, for all the happy years and for putting up with this crazy girl, for claiming you love all my girly shabby chic decor, for ignoring my artistic messes, and for understanding me and loving me for who I am. XOXOAs you can see, I have been having a bit of fun making Christmas ornaments for that white Christmas tree I'm hoping to buy this year. I can't wait to make some more!

The time flew by.....
My sweet mama just left and I miss her already. We had so much fun together while she was here! Below is a photo of my pretty new mirror I found at the antique store. I bought it with my birthday money. Just what I needed in my studio. My studio is my favorite room in the house. So full of bright, happy sparkling goodies and lots of art!!And here is one more fun thing I found at the antique store- some vintage Christmas ornaments. I have really been wanting some of these for a while now and it was only $4 for the box, so I could not resist! They would look so pretty on the white Christmas tree I am hoping to buy this Christmas!! Once I saw Jenny's white tree, I knew I had to have one!! Maybe since I had to clean up the studio for my sweet mama to stay in I will get some art done now! I'm itching to create some cute ornaments for that white tree I'm hoping for!

Birthday week fun!!
What a fun week it has been with my parents visiting!! We celebrated my birthday by eating at Pasados (I adore Mexican food!) and we had a yummy white cake with buttercream frosting, which is my favorite! Then I got to open my wonderful presents!! Here are a few of the goodies my sweet mama gave me..... two adorable vintage embroidered linens with scottie dogs, some pretty trims and buttons,
this gorgeous vintage dishtowel (faded just perfectly!),soft pretty sheet music and perfectly coordinating vintage wallpaper,this amazing vintage tablecloth- also faded to perfection,sparkling goodies for making art and a necklace pendant I can personalize with my own artwork or photo,
this pretty crazed plate, more vintage trims,lots of my favorite candy,and this amazing vintage hat!! I had some fun creating a vignette inspired my fabulous new hat and sheet music.
And of course, whenever my sweet mama visits we always must go antiquing!! These photos are from my favorite antique store called "Gatherings" in Georgetown.
The serenity of white.
Cute, cute stuff!!! Love the vintage toys and dolls!!

Here is my dad with my littlest guy. My dad is so sweet to always keep the kids busy so mama and I can have some kid free fun.Here is my cutie in front of one of my favorite antique stores called "Rough and Ready" in Georgetown.
I had such a fun week! Sadly, my dad had to go home after a week, but my mama gets to stay for another week!! So there is more fun to be had!

Happy Birthday to....... me!!!It is my 35th birthday and I am getting the best present- my sweet parents are coming to visit!! That means some fun antique and thrift shopping with my mama! I will bring along my camera because I know you girlies love to see those photos of all the gorgeous antique stores as much as I do!! This lovely little aqua vase is my latest Goodwill find. It was only 99 cents!!I have not been creating much lately, but I did make this sweet scrapbook page. I also had some fun painting and adding glitter to these vintage bluebirds. Can't wait to use them in a project!!Well, I must go do some last minute cleaning before my parents arrive. Will be back with some yummy photos in a day or two.
