Show and Tell

Hello,
Happy Thursday!!
I started my day with my morning walk. I walk every week day with my friend Joan.
I then went to get my nails done. They really take a beating with all of my projects.
Here is one of my latest projects. A Thanksgiving garland, which will be going to Garden Memories this weekend. I drew out the oak leaves, painted and glittered them.

Here is a little turkey box I added to my box repertoire. Above the turkey,( because I can hear you wondering),little hanging letters. I had a special order for D's and C's.

A new Make a Wish wand, and a new ballerina box. They keep dancing out of the shop. I got some of my ballerinas from my friend Jamie at http://simplymeart.blogspot.com/ Visit her,
she makes the prettiest vintage jewelry ever!!
Got a little email note from my friend Jennifer Grey today. She requested a picture of the washstand I purchased from her. I used it in the corner of my bedroom. Pretty hand towels, courtesy of Garden Memories. www.gardenmemoriesgifts.com

Now I am glittering some new crowns, so much for my nails.

Have a great day/evening!!

One more note, I discovered my friend Manuela formerly of The Feathered Nest, has a new blog, http://thepleasuresofhomemaking.blogspot.com/ I'm so sorry that I did not realize this sooner. Anyway visit her, you will love her blog. Glad she is back blogging!

Chat soon!!

Love,

Rosemary

Wow! That sure is pretty! I make ragrugs for a hobby, plus purses out of old jeans, and aprons out of old dresses. I have another site for stuff like that:

Feel free to copy the crafts if you like them. They are easy. You have to scroll down a lot to see them on that site.
I will be posting a lot on my "Civilla" site on the 50's!

Hi Rosemary!

Those wands are so gorgeous I can see why they're flying out of the store! Love all your glittery goodies!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome back!

Have not been by in a long while ...that's what happens when you have little ones underfoot! I adore the little ballerina! You've been a busy woman, I see! PS I've just plain given up on nails!

I am betting that garland will be in the shop for less than an hour before it is snapped up! The leaves you drew are just wonderful.

Good morning my friend! I just love your wash stand! If I had space for one I would get one for my bathroom. Cute, cute!

Awesome garland you made there! I laughed when you said your nails take a beating. I gave up on mine a few years back. Keep up the amazing work!
