Welcome to a Victorian Tea Party!!! Hosted by Kim over at the Victorian Parlor.

Please come in and grab a cup of tea and relax. enjoy looking around at some of my favorite things. Mr. French Bear would be happy to serve you...... cupcakes.......... perhaps you need to use the hand stitched napkin, always a favorite......

Maybe you would rather use the delicate little child size tea set......

Take a moment to smell the wonderful roses, green are my favorite!

Teacher Gifts

Every year we have to come up with a gift for those teachers who work so hard. Nothing says thank you like a bouquet of pencils......
I have to give credit to Polly over at The French Cupboard, I got the idea from her because once when she was cleaning and organizing, she put her pencils neatly in a jar. I thought it would be neat to make a jar of pencils and scrapbook it with some other "teacher" ideas.
Now my grandson and granddaughter can give their teachers a super gift and not another coffee mug!!! I hope they like them!!! It's being so long since I have made teacher gifts, what are you making or giving to your favorite teacher?
Let me know, I love to hear from you!!!!

My New Knitting Bag














I actually finished something.... my new knitting bag! I love sewing bags, I'm not sure why, maybe the promise of things to fill it!!! It just gives me a wonderful feeling to make them. I have a few more on the go, along with these knitted roses I am working on. I'll show you when I am done, they are really addictive to make!! I probably will have roses on everything!
Happy Wednesday,

Whimsy Girl


A little while ago I purchased this beautiful framed art block from Lynn at Her Creative Spirit. I love her, she is so sweet, I love the picture of the little girl holding her dolls. I have been so busy lately, maybe doing too many things. I feel a tug towards making dolls again, but of course I need to finish my bears and rabbits I have had on the go for months! I just wanted to share my little Whimsy Girl with you and let you see what beautiful work Lynn does. She has lots of fabulous mixed media creations!!! I get inspired when I read her blogs!!! 
You may want to pour a cup of coffee and browse while you are over there!!! Thank you to Lynn for the "extra" little blue journal, I love it! She also sent me a cute wicker buggy, I am waiting to show everyone after I do something with it, he he...
I guess I need to go make something!!!
Where does the time go?
Have a good week!!!
