I am soaking up all the birthday goodness I can get and enjoying every minute of it.
This cute card is from Robin, as if the clock/frame she made wasn't enough?!
My suitcase is still sitting in my studio, filled with vintagey purchases from my trip. I am trying to focus on getting ready for Art in the Park on Sunday and ignoring the other stuff piling up around me.
But I just HAD to pull some of it out to play with.
All the photos and birds are from the Cottage and were only $1 each. The cute bird collage is from an artist there too, look at how she has used the snap for an eye!
The first three hats on the back left are from my trip to Virginia, but the rest are from a day out with Sugarwings yesterday. She and I did a bit of junking and I bought these four floral beauties for $30!
And even though I know I need to get ready for the art show this weekend, I spent the hour I watched American Idol last night sorting flowers.
(Our local Kansas City boy, and my favorite, David Cook is still blowing them all away on Idol, and I think he has a good shot at winning)
The blooms are sorted into boxes by color then I put them into my big storage box that is covered with old wallpaper.
I even made a separate box of an assortment of posies to keep by my worktable, ready to grab when needed.
Still had more than I could use. What to do with all these hats and flowers???
So, I made 5 packets of pink and white to sell on Etsy. It isn't even a drop in the bucket. I think that once I get past this art show, and the rest of my upcoming 50th birthday parties, I will wrap up some more to list and sell. edit: only two left, these are selling fast
edit: oops, those sold too! I added more to the shop, thank you all so much for stopping by and snapping those flowers up so quickly!
Twinkle was relieved that I decided to sell some.
