FINALLY FIRST LAVENDER SACHETS FINISHED
These three are just the tip of the iceburg. I have atleast a dozen more layed out ready to match up the embellishments. That's the fun part. I have tons of vintage images I have bought on cd and collected from lots of sources. My mother got me started on that part. I found a little journal that she had pasted Christmas cards in. It was in the cedar chest. My mother has been gone 5 yrs and she was 87 when she died. She put her age in the book as 9 years old when she made up her little scrapbook. I will try to photograph it one of these days. That book started me on my collection of Christmas cards and greeting cards, pictures etc. I would not trade any of them for anything. Oh yes, the sisters image on the pink sachet is from Gail Schmidt at Shabby Cottage Studios. Thank you for such a pretty picture. Want to make sure she gets credit for such a pretty picture/
Well, our weather has really cooled off and I am enjoying every bit of it. I know summer and hot weather will come again next year, but, I am going to enjoy this cool weather no matter what the heating bills are later on. I guess this is all for today. I hope all of you have a nice end of the month. I don't really celebrate halloween any more, it has gotten too witchy and dark. I love fall decorations, the leaves and fall colors. Not long and the holidays will be upon us. I look forward to that. It is my favorite time of the year.
May God Bless each and every one of you.
