ok...i'm lacking in

blogging drive....not much time between maxx's therapy....and various other things goin on....

to say life is busy is an understatement...

Weather has warmed up nicely...yesterday in the 90's..today 80's tomorrow forcasted to be 75...then 65 on thursday...oh geez....that is NOT going in the right direction...as we COULD have snow by the weekend...



ON FRIDAY WE WELCOMED THIS SWEET ANGEL INTO OUR WORLD



MAY I INTRODUCE LAVENDER PAMELA!!! Weighing in at 7lbs 15oz, 20 1/2" long arriving at 6:22 am!

the flea markets and rummages were very good to me this weekend...
found these beauties at a rummage right around the corner from our house...
this one has a broken pin back...but thinking it will be so pretty on a cuff!







Sunday morning...BEEEE U TEE FUL MORNING...papa and I set out for Cedarburg...to fireman's park...for the first fleamarket of the season there!

found these two sweeties...



..and also THIS SWEETIE! None other that Chippy Shabby, Jeanine Burkhardt HERSELF!!!



Papa made several trips to the car for me..with the treasures we found...well what I FOUND...



my finds will be so happy in their new home, don't ya think? Here is the birdie cage



..and this picnic basket and trellis!


...then leaving the flea market...we drove by this!!!
My head did a snap...and made papa turn the car around...



..yep right into the car it went
got it home and took out the drawers...



...took off the back...going to use that stenciled part..for some kind of art..



papa got a new back on the dresser...



and i have it all primed and ready to go!
Now need to pick up a color of paint...it's going into my art playroom...so something vintage toy color...and with POLKA DOTS!



WHAT FUN!!!

made up these totes this week....the first one is a beachy theme..with mermaid graphics


i took strips of textured fabrics...and scrunched them all up and stitched them down to create a sandy beach water...feel...



then some sweet friends and family sent me coffee bags and i stitched them in to a panel for this bag...
side one....



and side two...



well that's it for now, folks...

BIG HUGZ TIL NEXT TIME! (Which will be sooner than last!)

Hi, It's been awhile since I visited your blog. WOW! Lavender Pamela is ADORABLE!!! Love her name.
Great fleamarket finds. I know there must be some great old items here in Texas. Just about settled in our new home.
Have missed visiting your site and other. I pop in Viv's as I can. Soon I will get to visit more.
Hugs
