Babies and Birdies and Blessings

Hello, my friends! (I borrowed that from John McCain, lol) It's high time I got back to my blogging!

It was a crazy week, but brother Paul is home now--a little worse for the wear and tear, but in good spirits and happy to be home. Thank God. I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart--all of you who stopped by with a kind word, and a hug, and a prayer for him and us---you have no idea how much it means to me! I LOVE you gals!!

I so enjoyed my last giveaway!!--and the lovely MaryMarsh was so pleased with her prize that she wrote me a nice little piece in her blog. Thanks MaryMarsh--you're a sweety!!

Speaking of Giveaways.....I was the extremely lucky winner of a giveaway by StarryDeborah. She is a very talented mixed media collage artist and I won this GORGEOUS Paris collage from her! Oh, I just love it, and am a little sad that the picture doesn't do it justice! I guess that is the way it is with most art, right? There is so much more to it in person...depth and texture and emotion. Thanks so much StarryDeb--I absolutely love it and it looks so good on my blue wall!


I did a new style of birds this past week--you know, just shaking things up a bit! This style is more old-fashioned and lends itself very well to vintagey wallpaper prints --see for yourself!

I love them! Of course, I am still doing my old style too and have some new ones in the SHOP that have some nice Christmas colors--swing by and see!


You will never guess what? I became a Grandma yesterday!!! Remember my step-daughter Misty? Well, surprise, surprise....she was pregnant and didn't tell us. It's all a bit of a soap opera and I won't go into details but--good always comes from bad--and we have a GRANDCHILD to go meeet today!

AND--our lovely and talented friend PINKY had her baby on Sept 31st--and put up pics of the little fella on her blog --swing by for a nice AWWWWW! moment.

Congratulations on the newest member of your family.
I read your comment on Maryjo's blog, I am the editor, Karen. I am working on an article showcasing crafts, fabrics and trims. Do you use materials from Mary Jo's? Do you have a project or 2 you could share? I will link the article to your blog and or Etsy shop.
Thanks in advance for your response.

Fabulous birdies!

Pinky said...

I am SUPER glad to hear that about your brother! YAY!! AND, you get to be a g-ma?? How awesome is that??? Thanks for the love for me and my new baby. Crocheting amuses him, so I'm still being able to be a little crafty. HUGS!!!

p.s. he LOVES the music on your site. Seriously, sometimes I come over here just so he can chill and listen. The Oreo song is his favorite! HA!
