Like Usual...






































































































Like usual...Here are some willy nilly NOT in order photos...from around the house. Whatever struck my fancy. I was playing around with the camara today. I wanted to share one of my new pieces for my etsy store "You ought to be in pictures".....love that fab roaring 20's gal! I added some neat old buttons, rhinestones, an old earring, and stick pin. I will be adding a few things today over at my etsy store if you care to take a gander. Mother's Day is coming up!
Awhile back sweet Becky of http://sweetcottagedreams.blogspot.com/ and I did a fun swap with each other. She made me the sweetest pennant banner EVER and a heart sachet that smells devine, it even has a cherry charm on it! She also spoiled me with a wonderful old birdy (I collect these type) and a wee little Russian nesting doll keychain. She also threw in candy (all gone) and buttons!!!!!! I had the banner in my craft room...where I was NOT giving it any justice....this room is a mess at the moment...I won't even try to explain that one. Sooo I moved it in here to my white hutch...where it sassed the joint up a bit. Can I just say Becky is a very talented seamstress...I know many of you know that... but she really can rock the sewing machine! Thanks again Missssssss. Becky!
I wanted to show my old milk cap collection I now have an on going love affair with. A new silouette I found awhile ago thrifting, new plate, new silverware.....ALL thrifted of course. I nestled some clock faces in a flower frog and put them in my tart pan cloche combo! I found the purse this weekend at a garage sale for a 1.00. The white hen had been my husband's grandmother's...I folded some towels and put it in the old hen. I just love to add these little details to things...hope you enjoy them too! Well that is about it....for now. XOXO, Cherry

Hi Cherry
I have enjoyed catching up with your blog today. Your pictutres are beautiful. I especially like the red and white banner and the heart ornament. I love your milk cap collection too - we don't have those over here.
Thanks for for your comment on my blog. You MUST go to Discovery Cove. It was our favorite day. You can see lots more about it on my other blog but I need your e-mail to invite you to view it. If you leave me a comment with your e-mail I will not publish it when I moderate my comments. I have lots more to share over the coming weeks. I hope you have a wonderful time in August too.
Best Wishes
Lindsay

I love everything you featured. My grandmother use to have one of those little "ladies" with about 10 in there that you open then it comes down to a little teeny pea like lady...I loved it as a child.

Just a little something from Judy said...

You just have a way of creating amazing photo ops. I will look at your "willy nilly" photos anytime. This is another beautiful post. My favorite...the roaring 20's gal piece that you put together. What a work of art! And, the red heart from Becky. You know what, I think they were all my favorites. Thank you.

Hi Sweetie! As usual, your vignettes and artwork inspire me so much! Can you just drive down and help me with my house? Tee hee.

Everything you make is just precious! Thank you for sharing!!

PS: To get the tips of the pennants to uncurl, give them some steam and set a heavy book on them for a few minutes. xx
