Trick or Treat !!!!!

ten things About Me...

My darling Joy ( The Vintage Rabbit) presented me with this cool award.
The thing is , I've got to tell 10 things about myself that nobody knows.
Hmmm, lets see...

1. I don't eat squash. Hate it!!
2.I won toys from a childrens morning tv show called Hobo Kelly
when I was in 3rd grade.
3. I can (or used to) pogo-stick and twirl a baton at the same time.
4.I'm terrified of reptiles! Even turtles!!In fact if a lizard gets in the
house, I leave!!!!!
5.Can't watch animal movies. They make me cry!
6.I'd give anything to be 5'6"...or taller!!
7.I have a super huge crush on a Formula 1 race car driver from Spain,
Fernando Alonso !
8.Never read War and Peace
9.I don't like to make left turns...not sure why!!
And now the last thing that nobody knows about me is........

10.I don't like my food to touch.
AND I eat one thing at a time...clockwise! I know,

Ok, time to pass this award on...I think all my blog-gals
are deserving, but keeping with my Southern California
friends...Sandra Lee, it's yours!!!!!!

A perfect blog party for two !

Last weekend I was able to spend some time with my dear friend joy...
we were able to have ourselves a little " blog-party".

We started our day at one of my favorite places for Mexican food and the most delicious pomogranite margaritas!
Then off to Vignettes' where joy has a very fabulous booth...the owner Laurie couldn't have been more sweet!!

We made another stop at papertales, then off to Cheescake factory for iced tea.

Our time went too quick, but it was sooooo great to be together!!!
Thanks Joy!!!!

What I've been working on lately...

Maybe it was another birthday...but I've been feeling like I need to try to push myself into different directions with my art. Do something that's not so easy for me....

Being inspired by all the cool vintage-bohemian stuff out there, I've started a new project.

Not going to say exactly what it is just yet...a gal has to have a few secrets!!

Rainy Days

I love to sew when it's raining outside!
You don't feel bad about sitting on your rear in front of the sewing machine just stitching the day away!
I made this little pumpkin head guy yesterday...
I was thinking about listing him on my Etsy, but he looks soooo cute on the mantel!
Hmmm...what do do, what to do!


Pete the Punkin Head!

Thank You Joy!!

My sweet friend Joy sent me the coolest gifts!
I love it when birthdays keep going...
She always comes up with things that are so "me"! I can't wait to read all about how Barbie was created!
She included a great Wizard of Oz tote, and one of her darling wreaths!

Thank you dear friend!!!


And my birthday continues!!!

Just a little reminder!

I had a little scare...well actually a big scare.
On my last eye exam the doctor was concerned that I may be developing Glaucoma!?
You could of knocked me over with a feather!
It's the #1 cause of blindness in this country!
Good news is that if caught early, it can be treated. Not cured, but kept under control.

Long story short, after 2 tests...and tons of worry I'm fine. I'm a worrier anyways, but this was pretty frightening!
So, please try to keep up with those ever so important eye exams!


I feel like I could fly!!

Bits n' Pieces

Just a little up-date of what I've been up to in my's been a while!
I really love designing my dolls, but it's fun to step outside the box sometimes.
Like most of us crafty gals, I've got "stuff" all over the place!
Old hankies, lace, bits and pieces of treasure from who know where...even a very old tattered prom dress that I found years ago at an auto swap meet !

My goal was to come up with pieces that would have that great vintage feel, but would work with any style.
Ta Da!!! My little pins were born!!

Hope you like them!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!


This is from a very old 50's prom dress!
