Pink Peonies Blooms


The wet spring has been perfect for my peonies this year. I have more large blooms than ever before.
I didn't even realize I had pink ones. Just in time for Pink Saturday





I am taking this pretty bouquet to someone this morning. I already have it packed in a travel box.



This one is sitting on my work table in the studio which i'm sure you can tell by the mess around it  or should I say all the creativity around it LOL




Just beautiful if I say so myself. I hope everyone has some in their yards. This is my second favorite first is my Hydrangeas. Do you love peonies also?





I'm going to post these on Beverly's Pink Saturday

Beautiful Finds

 Hi

Oh my I have already had lots fun going to estate sales and resale shops this spring, sure you have also.
I know I need to clean out, sale or give away lots of items around my house because it is getting cluttered around here. I'll just stick some things under my bed ? LOL I bought another complete set of Mason dishes a flowered transferware and just couldn't pass them up for the price of $41 for 76 pieces nothing chipped, however I forgot to get the sugar bowl lid ! Darn,left it on the check out table



Now that I'm not working I can play a lot more in the studio and treasure shopping.I do enjoy arranging things in the studio. I have an idea for rearranging a few pieces of furniture






I still have plants sitting around tin the studio windows that I brought in last fall and not sure it's warm enough to put them outside quite yet.

It's very cool and very cloudy here today so I will be busy inside all day. I need to get some bedding plants out also.
Hope you are having a fun week

Inside Birds

Well I do believe spring has finally came to central Missouri and the birds are happy and so am I.
I still throw out sunflower seeds for my birds year around, just feed them more in the winter then always have water for them

Anyway I bought this embossed cardboard picture frame with birds on it at a shop in Chesterfield Antique Mall at their warehouse sale and I loved it soon as I seen it. Not perfect for you people who want only perfect items LOL See the top left corner.



The colors are good and look at the birds ! it's about a 8 x 10 inch frame. I tried different pictures and different ephemera papers and nothing looked good.



So I started going through drawers of papers I have and seen this music paper and thought, YES the birds are singing, so used this.





I have been outside a lot today, raking my yard dragging out flower pots  from my garden shed and painting an item and haven't completed one project . I have just gone from one thing to another. This is what I usually do I get so excited when I get an idea about something.

A friend said this frame is from around 1910

I have enough energy to get back outside and fill a bag of leaves where I cleaned out my peonies bed. They are coming up beautifully. I'm sure your flowers are also ? Hope you are busy also.

Snowy Saturday

I can't believe it has snowed today didn't accumulate to much on ground however it snowed for a long time. Temperatures tonight low 27!!  Rain most of day also.

Our Rivers are really rising here in Missouri, I have a friend on the river in Clarksville whose house is in big danger of serious flooding. It's sad to see a mansion flood.

I worked in my studio off and on all day trying to straighten up work tables and making it look maybe not so cluttered which it is . I rearranged some tables and still need to get more done. This picture is just a shelf.



I also did some baking today ,I made chocolate chip black walnut cookies. They are soooo good . I bake from scratch no mixes most of the time.LOL
 Delicious if I say so myself.

This is a page out of an old Victorian calendar to remind me it is still March  one more day. I think the little girl is so cute and the bunny




My flapper doll waiting to be dressed ,that pink silk is off an old blouse of mine and of course an old lace dollies. I posted these for Pink Saturday . She is sitting in a chair I painted pink several years ago and paint is still good




Also my pink fairy is posted for Pink Saturday at How Sweet The Sound blog, she is hanging under a shelf




Gosh I'm tired now so must go have cup hot tea and rest a while, hope you are having a good Saturday.
My neighbors just drove in from Tampa Florida and came home to a cold surprise with our snow

I Went To Paris

Well I did go to Paris Missouri to an antique show with a friend. It was like back in the late 1980's to me all the blue crocks, quilts and primitives that I use to love.

I bought some flatware forks which my Instagram friends said are cake knives which I thought was fish forks LOL
I just love them I also purchased a large serving spoon and a butter knife to match the pattern oh also a cake server



After that show we drove over to Mexico Missouri and went in a fabulous small shop which the owner collects clocks and has many in his shop. Anybody that knows me knows I love rhinestones on anything LOL and when I seen this clock I knew I wanted it. It is marked France !!! I'm sure Paris ?





I need to show a few pink thing for Pink Saturday and this time of year before Easter there is plenty of Pink around here. I'm sure at your house and studio also.This is a box of little treasures I bought at a warehouse sell in Chesterfield to adorn some of my creations I'm always working on something  for self entertainment. I Love the little plastic lamb.




 Here is a tray of Easter Eggs I am still working on which I have the ideas in my head just can't get them on the eggs, do you know what I mean? I found this white porcelain egg tray in a resale shop last week and it's perfect for my fancy eggs. I'll add the rhinestones on the handle




Here is a couple plastic rabbits that opens and I added some of my vintage buttons in them



Well I have to take a walk while the sun is out, it has rained some today and lots thunder also.

Fun With Sea Shells

I have been playing way to much in the studio and not keeping up with house work. But guess that is ok? A friend and I have been working with our collected sea shells.Some are my grandparents from Florida back from 1960's.
I also used some die cuts I bought years ago from an artist estate sale.I get started on a project and just can't stop however there is lots of glue dying time evolved with these.

This first one is my favorite one



These were really fun to make I'll show a couple

I think this is another one that is my favorite LOL I had a small piece drift wood I added
The backs are shells glued standing up then I embellished them with with trims etc

I added some pearls since pearls do come from our sea shells



I think this little girl is sweet riding in her egg cart, I put glitter around her shell , It was a challenge to get these shells glued to stand up on other shells




Now i'm trying to decorate Easter Eggs, since I love glitter I'm starting with glitter and then will add ribbon trims and rhinestones. I must let them wait for today I have a list of other things to get done. Also since the sun is shinning I can get things accomplished, on cloudy days I just want to sit and eat cookies LOL





Are you working on any projects? I still have cards I want to make for Birthdays etc.I use old papers from calendars and scarp book finds on my cards
