What are you making for your Mom on Mother's day?

I already finished my project, I would show a picture but Momma wouldn't be surprized. I will ship it early so I can show you and give you some ideas. Oh and all my sister's are Moms too, so I can tell you I am stamping silver,beading,playing with my vintage treasures. What do you love to make? This is my favorite holiday.

A mistake takes you on a differant journey, just keep going!

I was trying to bend the spoon to make a bracelet and I snapped the handle of the spoon right off! I ended up doing some sewing instead, adding velvet to wrap around the back. Okay now what can I use the Handle for......any ideas?

This one is for Polly!

We blogged some time ago that we needed to start wearing our vintage aprons in public! We are old enough, do I care? It was fun. I showed up at The Red Shed Antiques,Grapevine,Texas sale with it on! Fashion statement, not sure? The girls definitely got it! I made up some fun Dumster Diva bumper stickers. It occured to me that now I need to make a sticker that says"I don't care if this Apron makes me look fat, I am going to rock it anyways!"

My own dress form "Isabella"

I have waited a long time for a dress form and she was waiting for me at Red Shed Antiques,Grapevine, Texas! They have such great sales every other  month! I saw on their blog how they worked on this girl, and I though she would be gone by the time I arrived in the afternoon. She was there waiting for me to drag home and dress up. I put an old Flapper dress on her to start with. As I got her home I relized she is my size when I am at a lower weight. She will work well for my sewing endeavors! I thank you so much Ladies at the Red Shed, as always you are my hero's!

Santa Cruz Beach Sea Glass for Kerri!

Nothing flatters you more then when one of your Daughters wants a piece you have made. Pretty green sea glass, one of my favorites. I just need to find some Aqua Marine colored glass for my other Daughter Amanda! Has anyone ever found Pink sea glass?

I want to go too the Prom...

I just made this corsage and it reminds me of a dress I would love too wear to a prom. Something Pink, Vintage, and full of Tulle!  How fun it would be to dance outside under the twinkle lights with my sweetie. What song....Joe Cocker's ..Your are So Beautiful...what would you choose?
