Birdhouses and Rhinestones

I have lots of pictures as it has been a busy few days. First, a few tags and a collage I made for etsy. I love the pink ones with the angels and lace. The collage is sweet, and named " To Have and To Hold " I know a lot of us display our wedding memorabilia, cake topper, dresses etc. So, I thought this would be sweet to add to it.
These sweet Birdhouses were a Custom Order for a sweet Lady in England. I hope she likes them !! I painted my sweet roses and added vintage rhinestone earrings and pink and green birdies.


This is a lot of Rhinestone Jewelry I bought on ebay last month. Just love the Aqua !!!
Yesterday my Husband and I went Runnin' with Mom ( and to lunch ) and look what my Sweet Husband bought for me !! Yep, a Sonie Ames print for $5.99 ! Wow, Wrap it up !! It is perfectly sweet, great chippy old frame so I wont have to do a thing other than clean it and hang it ! You can't tell from the pic, but the matting is pale pink. Just perfect !! Thanks Honey !! My Sweet Mom, also brought me MORE buttons and this cute tomato pin cushion with the pins. Also a Bible that is very near and dear to me as it was My Aunt Rozie's and Uncle Roy's. Thanks Mom !!


Finally, look what the mailman brought ! Sweet Pink Tags from Betty at She's so Pretty, and Baby tags from Beth Leintz. Betty is filling up a book that she is making, with all of the great stuff she has received from other artists. So we swapped tags, and I bought the baby tags from Beth's Etsy store, as I am making a canvas collage for my work room with tags from all of the sweet ladies in Blog land. So , If you would like to swap tags, please let me know, and tell me your colors and preferences !! I can't wait to be able to look up from my work table and see all of the pretty art of all of you talented ladies. What a great few days it has been, although very busy. I have had one Blessing after another all week long. And I thank My Savior for every one of them !! *smiles*
