I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since my last post!
(altered pic of my roses, taken in their prime)

Been lacking creative mojo lately!
Just not feeling into making or doing much of anything...

About all I have to show for the last 2 weeks is this card 
I put together from last weeks 
Mojo Monday card sketch:
The paper reminded me of a dress.
So I pulled out some notions:
hooks & eyes, lace, ric-rac.

And added a little stitching around the edge.

I think I need to go find some inspiration!
Cuz this is getting ridiculous!
Maybe I'll snap out of it soon!

Hope things are going well in your corner of the world...

Beach Dreamin' on White Wednesday

Lately I've been dreaming of sunny days on the beach,
remembering visits to Florida
and collecting seashells along the shore.
(probably because we've been having more rain than sunshine here!)

My mom bought this candlabra for me
last week on one of our treasure hunts!
I love the center bowl that can be
changed with the season!

We also found this chippy wire chair!

And then filled my jar with memories!

See other White Wednesday goodness
over at Faded Charm!

Have a wonderful day!

Vintage Summer Monday

Melinda at Alabaster Rose Designs hosts Vintage Summer Monday's on her beautiful blog!  Although this will be the last she will have until she is done moving in July, I'm still thrilled to be able to participate, and I'm looking forward to her return!

Melinda is also having a 100 followers giveaway!
But HURRY!  It ends June 10th!

This past week I have been spending a lot of time with family who are visiting for my daughter's graduation!  We have had a blast checking out several antique shops in the area, with more to come!

Here are just a couple of the treasures I've found this week:

Vintage plate of roses!

Vintage flower frog, holding a picture I had found earlier!

Vintage metal wall mirror!
It's stamped "MadeItaly" on the back!!!  COOL!
(should I paint this white or not???)

Oh!  And if you haven't seen it already,
Dawn over at The Feathered Nest is also having a giveaway!
Just Because!!!
(I say just because she's so sweet!)

Have a wonderful Vintage Summer Monday!
