I recently requested more tags for my Alice Tag book. (Originally came from the Alice tag book swap karla'scottage.typepad.com) I just thought my tag book needed more Alice in Wonderland themed tags. And this is what I got from Ruth at throughmygardensgate.blogspot.com I was absolutely spoiled here. I asked for two different Alice tags. I not only received two very beautifully done tags, but also this most lovely package. Reminded me of "Brown paper packages tied up with string," These are definitely some of my favorite things.
She made a beautiful large pocket and inside had the tags, this darling little notebook, a bunch of antique buttons some other embellishments wrapped up in a paper doily. Scrumptious indeed!
These tags are amazing. She is so talented. I couldn't love them more. Thank you so much Ruth.
And these lovely old buttons. I have been receiving many antique buttons lately. I just can't believe all the work Ruth put into this package. I am so lucky
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
