{a little monkey business}


this is an order I was working on this morning and I couldn't resist sharing the proof I sent to my friend and client.
These scalloped pieces can be used for a garland, used for stickers, great for attaching to a favor to say thanks for coming, etc.
I think these turned out great. I think my favorite is the banana!
Happy Tuesday!

{treasures}


I thought I would post this lovely picture today. The glass jar was a find by my friend Emily at an antique store here in Denver and I created the little hanging bird with some bright ribbon, pieces of french stationary and a vintage button. {the little bird cut out was from Michaels, for $.25} The fabulous straw purse was my grandmothers, one of the many vintage purses from her I treasure. {hmmm that would make a great blog post!}

Lately, I am wishing I had unlimited space to fill up with treasures from Estate Sales, antiques stores and French style flea markets, and I would sell it, and keep some of it, I am sure! In a few years, once I am not working full time I would love to do that, along with selling my cards.

Last time Emily and I did go to an estate sale, we picked up some lovely treasures do a giveaway. We plan to post that giveaway in the next few weeks so please come back again soon and be on the look out for that! It is going to be a lovely giveaway!

Hope this makes your day a little brighter!

{inspired}

after another trip to the Dallas Ikea this weekend, I was so inspired by all these pots... makes me want to garden!
and the fabric, oh the fabric!
I didn't really know that Ikea carries fabrics. I was smitten!
all the colors, all the patterns!
When Ikea finally opens up in Denver next year, I plan on getting lots of lovely fabric and stitching up a few things! {ps please forgive these photos from my sad little camera phone!}
