Fun stuff!


I was very honored to receive this pretty Art Award from Louise at Beachys Cape Cod Cupboard. I was very fortunate to meet Louise during the OWOH giveaway and we really hit if off :-) Be sure to stop by her blog and Etsy store if you want to see some Fabulous Finds! This award was created at Arte y pico and was passed on from artist to artist. I am to pass it on along with the following rules:
Post the award on your own blog with a link to the blog it came from.

Indicate its original link and link to that site.

Pass the award on to your five favourite bloggers - people who inspire and stimulate. And the award goes to:

Angie-Quillysillys Vintage Paper Boutique

Amy-Razz Pizazz Boutique

Nerissa-Kate,Vee & ME

Sherry-Tied up in Ribbons

Jen-Artful Dreamer

These women always inspire me with their awesome artwork and encourage me with their kinds words. Pass it on, girls!











My DVR (yes, I consider it mine...my hubby doesn't have any shows recorded on it, hee hee)in the Master Bedroom is always full because of the old movies that I love to watch! Occasionally I record some movies that I know my daughter will enjoy. Cover Girl was perfect for our mother/daughter movie night! I don't think this movie had the best script but the dancing, music and fashions were really fabulous! I tried to find pics from the movie but I found very few. Rita Hayworth plays a dancer/model in the movie so if you want to see glamorous fashions from the 1940's, then this Technicolor movie is for you. You will see lots of chic red lipstick, beautiful wavy hair, to-die-for jackets with peplums/fitted waists, ladylike gloves and lots of gorgeous over-the-top hats!

I've been busy...Correspondence Envelopes...a fabulous custom order


Today was my lucky day...I received 3 packages in the mail today (I am blogging about 2 of them today). FABULOUS FIND OF THE DAY: My Wriskey and Sew La Mode T-shirt arrived today...yahoo! I fell in love with this shirt and I had to have it..ooh-la-la! I had a really difficult time deciding which Wriskey to purchase but I chose to go with the chic pink cheetah print (pink....of course!).



I won these beautiful and chic ATC's from Teresa Sheeley at French Poppy Greetings. My daughter will be thrilled when she sees them! I am going to frame them and hang them on the wall in her Paris themed bedroom. Thank you, Teresa...you are so talented!




Have a fabulous evening, everyone!

That Wriskey is new to me... and I LOVE that style! And what a sweet thing to have a mother-daughter movie night... right now, my daughter loves Disney movies -- (I'm sure SOME day she'll enjoy watching "old" movies - heehee)! I DID manage to have all my kids sit down together to watch "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" with Don Knots done in the 1960's. I guess they're all still too young to appreciate anything "vintage". =)
