Putting up my new finds.

I found this little shadow box shelf and I fell in love with the carved wood design. At first I thought I was going to paint it white, but I also love the black. What to do?




I put the door knocker up, boy it's laud.



This collection of framed mirrors I picked up at my mom's house. My sister no longer wanted them and mom had no room. Guess what ...... LOVE them.





Embellish It, swap at Your Paper Pantry.

These are the creations of group 3, for the Jan. canvas swap.

This gorgeous piece of art belongs to Lugene.

This beautiful one belongs to the talented Lisa.

This one is mine.

Cupid was good to me.

And I was good to Cupid, too. He knows what can make me very happy!


A new addition to my collection, she is so pretty. I haven't named her yet.


This is a tradition, cream cheese and guava yellow cake. YUMMMMMM

Isn't that a beautiful sight. My new rain barrel. I'm so happy right now!!!! Rain water is naturally soft and oxygenated, is also more acidic than tap or well water. Even though I have a well, rain water is so much better cause it doesn't have any chlorine, calcium or lime. It's great for the environment by helping to reduce the runoff. But the main reason is that plants LOVE rain water and if my plants are happy, I'm happy.

I've been wanting one of these for a looooooong time. I got one now! My very own rain barrel. Yes ladies, I'm probably the only woman out there that can get so excited about a rain barrel.



I was reading the instructions and it's so easy to install. A small adjustment to the rain gutter, and that should do it.



This is the grave yard for my broken china, great for drainage and I love how all the different color pieces look. My rain barrel is going to sit right here.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY.

This is my new, little cupid. I recently found him while junking around in central Florida. I think next year I'll make him a cute little outfit. LOVE HIM!




I LOVE making cakes and I often go HERE for inspiration. But, I have to say I won't be making one for this Valentine's day. I signed up for a mixed media art quilting class with my friends Olga and Sharon, that I'm so looking forward to. In the evening dinner and a movie, simply sweeeeeete.

I LOVE MAKING BANNERS.

A Christmas ornament was the inspiration for this banner. The moment I saw it, I knew it would make a beautiful banner. It welcomes you into my tiny scrapbooking area.
It's amazing how a bit of black can make things POP. My favorite embellishment is the little black rose bud. I got those from my friend Beth. She is my personal "treasure" shopper in Alabama, LOL. Love them!
