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.

I have lost my camera so I cannot post the mail goodies and vintage finds as promised.

I scanned some of my vintage Easter postcards. 
I will be posting more of them in the next week.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart.      ~Author Unknown

To love a person is to learn the song
that is in their heart,
and sing it to them
when they have forgotten.

Wishing you a wonderful day full of love and happiness!

How many days until Spring?

According to my sidebar calendar, it is 39 days until Spring. 

I found some of my vintage cabinet cards I scanned a couple of years ago. 
I thought these would help with your Spring thoughts.

This photo image was tinted using Photo Shop.

We had more snow here today...causing a lot of problems on the roadways for the drivers.
This area does not see this much snow, but again this has been an unusal winter for all areas. 
Please stay safe while driving this week!

Not much going on in the studio this week. 
 I am still recovering from pneumonia and a second round of meds.

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday dear friends!
Hugs, Sharon

Vintage Valentine

The past couple of weeks I have made some vintage Valentine art and gift tags for some blogging friends and family.
  I thought I would share with you some of the finished gifts.

This is a collage a made for a new blogging friend.  I used a original vintage Valentine for this collage, and added a vintage button embellished with vintage lace.

Here are some of the handmade gift tags.  I used copies of vintage Valentine cards and vintage photo images for these gift tags.  I embellished the tags with new papers, vitnage lace, vintage buttons, rhinestones, paper flowers, and ribbons.

Friends are kisses blown to us by angels. ~Author Unknown

But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine. ~Thomas Jefferson

Wishing you a wonderful week!

A Winter Swap Peek

This is a peek at my fabric collage creation for the Winter Swap.

I have been ill this past week and found out yesterday that I have pneumonia. 
 It started off with a cough...that just got worst. 
 So needless to say I am on some strong medications for now.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Sharon

Today is one of those days when I just want to stay in bed and sleep.  But when you have 3 dogs that need your attention...and lots of housework to catch up just can't do it.

I thought I would share with you some images around our home today.

In my art room ~
some vintage dolls.
