At the last craft show I went to I was asked where my daughter necklaces were. Don't I have any? was my first thought. I didn't have any so I went forward in hot pursuit for the perfect photo, and I think I found it. I had to fight for it on good old ebay, but I actually won! Yea! There are some images that just speak to you, and this one did for me. Hope you enjoy it, and have a splendid weekend and if you have a daughter count your blessings and give her a big fat hug and a kiss.
Last evening while walking on the moonlit beach I came across a group of mermaids resting on rocks and combing their hair. Slowly I approached them. The mermaid nearest to me with hair as black as night beckoned me to come closer. When I did she dipped her webbed hand into the sand. Gathering it into a small glass bottle she handed it to me. Thank you I nodded and she gently touched my head. She dove back into the sea with the rest of her mermaid companions. Looking down at the bottle I noticed a beautiful label with her face on it. Inside was the most sparkly, glittered sand I had ever beheld. Of course it had magical properties in it. "Magical Mermaid Sand" was written on the tag. Affixed to the tag it reads: "This magical mermaid sand was collected when mermaids gather closest to the shore once a year, in the light of the full moon. Make a wish and sprinkle delicately to create your own magic.
Thank you mermaid friends especially Rosemary. I'll use the magical potion sparingly until I see you again when the moon is full.
Hi there and thanks for stopping by! Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderfully dedicated ladies. I recently found this photo of my mom and I. She always made me laugh as a child and still does to this day. Having a sense of humor certainly has made my life much richer, and I have my mom to thank for that. Here is a photo of my daughter's friend on the left and my daughter on the right wearing some of my charms. They were very nice to help me out at the last craft show. Thanks ladies! Well I wish you all a very lovely day tomorrow. Take a bubble bath, read an issue of Victoria, eat chocolate and relax. You deserve it!
Happy May Day to you! I thought I'd share a few images of the new project I'm working on. They are tiny charms (1/2"x1/2") filled with vintage images of birds, butterflies and flowers.
This butterfly charm says "Inspire" on the back. The yellow background comes from an old time card.
A pretty little poppy with "fleur" on the back.
For those of you who live in the San Diego area, I'll be at the Carlsbad Faire on Sunday May 4th. It is the biggest craft show I've ever been to. Downtown Carlsbad is filled to the brim with booths. I'll be across from the live theatre on State St. Be sure to come by and see me, because I love chatting with my bogging friends. Have a wonderful, joyous, flower filled May Day!
