There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends.
I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

Do you ever...

Plan your day and get side tracked? Well, today was one of those days for me.
We have company arriving in the morning and I should be cleaning.
I kept passing the computer and the art studio...and that urge to create kept pulling at me today. Thought I would share with you what I made on this diversion.
Yes, some more Christmas gift tags for my Etsy shop.
Just a reminder that when you purchase 3 of my gift tag listings...the shipping is free (US only)!

Wishing you a wonderful week of vintage hunting and creative inspiration!

Hope you have a great week!

I thought I would share a few with you today.

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Some affection and imagination!

I am certain of nothing but of the holiness of the Heart's Affections and the truth of the Imagination. ~ John Keats

1. the faculty of imagining, or of forming mental images or concepts of what is not actually present to the senses.
2. the action or process of forming such images or concepts.
3. the faculty of producing ideal creations consistent with reality, as in literature, as distinct from the power of creating illustrative or decorative imagery. Compare fancy ( def. 2 ) .
4. the product of imagining; a conception or mental creation, often a baseless or fanciful one.
5. ability to face and resolve difficulties; resourcefulness: a job that requires imagination.

1. fond attachment, devotion, or love: the affection of a parent for an only child.
2. Often, affections.
a. emotion; feeling; sentiment: over and above our reason and affections.
b. the emotional realm of love: a place in his affections.
3. Pathology . a disease, or the condition of being diseased; abnormal state of body or mind: a gouty affection.
4. the act of affecting; act of influencing or acting upon.
5. the state of being affected.
6. Philosophy . a contingent, alterable, and accidental state or quality of being.

You can take both your imagination and affection for something and create endless art...or even a wonderful home. A vintage postcard image from my collection. Wishing you a wonderful day!
