Slow But Sure...

The creative juices are returning...slowly, but surely. Gosh, this has been a dry spell! I haven't even been frequenting my favorite thrift stores.

What I have been doing is working on my secret project with Janet and cleaning house. With the fresh start of Fall approaching, it was time to tackle the kids closets - boy, how they've grown! I also have been cooking and baking up a storm which hubby loves.

I've also made up some new "Dinner Party Bottled Fortunes". These two sets are made up of a nice eclectic mix of old bottles.

Oh, one more thing! If you get Romantic Homes this month be sure and check out the letter by none other than my talented sister Melody! Silly girl, she had forgotten she had even written in....her letter is titled 'Beauty on a Budget' and features a picture of a cute display cabinet that she re-worked.

And finally, to toot my own horn, I was featured on the lovely Modern Vintage Designs website. Too cool, huh?

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
