Pretty in Pink

Ladies' Home Journal......Book of Interior Decoration 1959

If you look closely there is a Huldah print on the wall. I have about 28 by HULDAH CHERRY in a box that I need to hang. I am always drawn in by her prints. I just love pink !

Marie and More

Dawn of "The Feathered Nest" has a wonderful blog she mentioned a giveaway and I went on a little journey, thru blog land via "Flatwoods Folk art"
check it out.

I am experimenting with a Marie picture I found on the net. I used a match and burned the edges of one. I like the feel of it.

If you have a Hobby Lobby in your area you have probably seen these flowers. They have almost a leather feel to them. I worked them around into a wreath and added pearls and birds. The Christmas Tree is one of my recent Goodwill finds. It was 2.93 cents....such a strange price for an awesome tree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Books that call your name

I was drawn to the colors of the bunny book and the cool illustrations of the other.
Normally I can spot "old" books right away when I go down the aisle and glance at the books. Usually when I find the really cool books I have spent the time almost going one by one. I have always loved books and bought lots of Golden Books when my girls were young. Now I get my niece cool ones. I find it really, really hard to cut up books....or re purpose them..... I always have a stack of thrift books that I can thumb threw.
