A little black lace.

I got this black lace a while ago and been wanting to use it on something. I'm in a card making mood, but have not had much time to play. Does that ever happen to you? I have everything lined up and I know what I'm going to do, no time. But, don't get me wrong, I feel blesse to have all these supplies to play with. I think I have a problem with my time management. Maybe I need to be more organize and have systems in place???? Keep you posted on my progress.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week. I've been working hard in my garden. It's very hot here in south Florida for garden work, but I've missed it so. I still have a few more garden projects to finish, taking my time and enjoying it.
These are the lattes items that I've added to my ETSY store, oh so pretties.
I'm working on listing more of the vintage items that I picked up on my junking trip to Alabama.  I'll have more listings coming soon.
Porcelain Hand Painted Jewelry Trinket Covered Dishes
                              Delicate floral and lattes candy dish.
Vintage Milk Glass Small Egg Cup/Shot.
Hand Painted Fern Tea Cup and Saucer Set.

But, I'm a simple kind of gal that really doesn't wear much bling. So I think I will used some of these pieces to play dress up with my Ella. While some I will probably take apart and use in my jewelry making and  mixed media art.
These are some of my latest finding, my favorite is the pink bracelet. It reminds me of South Beach and Art Deco, so pretty.

I got the Farm girl collection just because I knew I wanted to create these layouts. Even though  October Afternoon can be use for any layout, I try to save my papers for  layouts of my nieces and nephews.  I think this company if perfect for children layouts, such cute collections. I know I say this all the time, but this is my favorite October Afternoon collection, until the next new one, lol.  
I took this picture of my cute niece's boots, just as she left them in her room, so cute. Thank God they were clean, lol.

Here she is in the chicken coop feeding her chickens. It's part of her daily chores, but I think she loves doing it anyway.  The kids have made it very clear that the chicken are pets. So glad they can just go to Publix for their food. I guess she's a modern day farm girl.

I just love these little veneer pieces that I  found a Michaels. But what to do with the cute little wood tray they came in with. I decided to feature an ATC every month, by placing it right at eye level in front of my work desk. All I did was remove the compartments, added some metals and Gesso the entire thing.  

                                      This is what I came up with.

                                       This is my latest ATC.

This little unexpected RAK I received from my favorite ATC supply source. I had mention her store in a video I did on my YOU TUBE channel, so she send me these 2 ATC kits and this beautiful ATC. THANK YOU!

All this beautiful goodness was given to me my my friend Lele Lineca. This package traveled quite a bit, all the way from Norway to Miami.   Make sure to take a peek at her You Tube channel and her Etsy store. She has some amazing goodies.
This is one of her famous Lele flowers, she names all of her flowers and this one is named Ella, after my Ella, so sweet.   

I'm in love with this pearl necklace, what a beautiful crown. She really knows what I like. 

                                      Yummy laces, so beautiful.

       She made these tiles, perfect for when playing with my mixed media.

 These napkins are four vintage images per napkin panel. I can't find these here in the states. So happy that I got some to play with, love them.

                          More of her famous flowers, so beautiful.

                                           Can you say BLING!
