Two weeks ago I was in Pheonix for my Birthday. We had gorgeous weather, and I spent that Saturday with my sister, hitting garage sales, going to Goodwill, and then the real fun was the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall. We had so much fun that day and we went to lunch
and had my favorite dish.
I am always looking for new little white pitchers. I love these little things. These two came from the antique mall.
These two 'Royal Albert' teacups were given to me by my sister. I think this is some kind of warmer. I love the unpolished silver look though.
I found some really pretty pieces that I couldn't resist. I love to collect double handled teacups.
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!
