Valentine mail art exchange





Today I received my mail art from Lillie in Malaysia..It is so pretty.I love the fabric she lined it with and the bow on the front is the perfect touch..She also sent me some heart stickers,2 skeins of thread,a post card from Malaysia which was a real treat as I collect postcards and this is my first from Malaysia..Also notice the handmade card it is so pretty.I wish you all could see it in person.Lillie did an amazing job on the card..Receiving Lillie's mail art today sure made my day ..I only wish that the valentine mail art I stitched would find it's way to the person I stitched for..

True Virtue Update



O.K. Here is my update..I stitched 2 apples on the tree then worked on the steps and the bottom front of the house..It's not much but it's more than I have been doing..The weather here has been so nice.I just can't stay inside..I've been soaking up that warm beautiful sun..Today is a rain day and I have a lot of running to do..Wish I could just stay home and stitch..Hope everyone has a great day.

Finally framed and my wreath




This has been a wonderful weekend..I spent most of the day Friday and Saturday on the patio..We even cooked out both days..It was so good to be outside and enjoy the sunshine..I was really getting grumpy from being in the house so much.

I finally framed this Prairie Schooler and I have it hanging on the wall as you enter the front door..It's not the best framing job by far but it will pass..I made bows out of gingham and tied them on my grapevine wreath for something country..The little sign that says simplify is something I picked up at a yard sale..Now I am off to fix some supper then work some more on true virtue..I have made a little progress and will have a update tomorrow..Pictures are clickable ..

Shaking my head..





I know my college boy really was bored during Christmas break when I found these on the camera..Poor Merriweather she is such a good sport..I bet she was glad to see him go back to school ..I guess I need to put my Play-Doh up next time..

Valentine Mail Art Exchange






I'm getting nervous.I sent my envelope out on Jan.10 and the person I sent to still hasn't received it..I know she doesn't read this blog so I feel safe in posting a picture..The second picture was scanned and didn't turn out very well.When I go to the post office and get the stamps I always take a picture then..This time I got to take one picture of the front..The memory card was full and did I know how to delete the old pictures off ..Of course NOT I never read the operating instructions in the book that came with the camera.I am looking forward to the next exchange it is a no theme exchange so we get to stitch whatever we want.

Thank-you Joanie

Thank-you Joanie for the award..I sure haven't been very good at keeping up a blog and may end up getting rid of it completely..But for now I will post 5 addictions although there are many more :-)

1. stitching ..right now I am on a mail art kick and I can't get enough..I LOVE IT!!!

2.Mah Jong..I play this mindless online game by the hours then get mad at myself for wasting so much time..

3.the computer..I just waste to much time on here reading all the blogs I love..

4.good patchouli oil and musk perfume are big loves and addictions

5.I love old stuff and always have so I collect everything..I will have to post some pictures of some of my collections..

I don't know who to tag so anyone that wants to take part go ahead..This is fun
