Creative Friday...but it's Thursday?

I know it's Thursday!
But DH and I are leaving town for a long weekend. Just the two of four legged children.

Here are my submissions for my Creative Friday images.
Would love to see what you create with the images this week!
I will take a lot pictures to share with you next week.
Wishing you a wonderful and creative weekend!

American Idol...

What is up with those judges this year?
They are telling them to do something different every week!
My favorite is Siobhan Magnus.
It is a boring American Idol year.

Altered Vintage Lace Journal

This is what I have been working on the past week. I finished the final stages today.
I have named my journal Vintage Lace Romance. There are several layers of vintage lace and trim on both the front and back of this journal. I have also added a tea dyed silk rose embellished with a vintage aurora borealis earring.
Just to add more shabbiness to this journal is a sweet vintage linen hankie that has French knots and appliqued flowers.
Here is a close up photo of the tea dyed silk rose with a vintage aurora borealis earring.
I listed this OOAK journal in my Etsy shop this evening.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Easter Swap and Vintage Finds

This is a display of my vintage finds. I stopped by an antique mall on my way grocery shopping yesterday. It was such a beautiful day here.

Just look at the pretties! Some may be included in my May blog give away.
The May blog give away will be a special one.
It will include some art pieces from some of my favorite bloggers.

Just look at this vintage purse! It is so pretty. There is a some damage to the fabric but is still such a pretty vintage find.
I am thinking of altering it...well really adding some pretties to the handbag for a hanging collage.
Look at these lovelies! Such cuteness!

This is what I received in the mail this week from Deb at Garage Sale Gal. We have had several holiday swaps. This is our Easter swap which included a handmade tussie. Deb was so generous with all of my goodies!
Thank you Deb!

This is a close up of the tussie Debbie made. It is so pretty. I have it hanging in my hearth area on an antique cabinet so I can enjoy each day while having morning coffee and reading the newspaper.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Creative Friday

Some vintage Easter postcard for your creative Friday and weekend projects.
I used Photo Shop to enhance the images.

Has this happened to you? This week has been a tug of war on emotions for I create or do I clean? So needless to say I feel as though I haven't accomplished much this week. So my creative Friday will be spent cleaning instead of creating.
Wishing you a wonderful Friday and weekend!
