Love Is In The Air......

First, I would like to say....I can't believe I have been away from my blog this long! So.....let's just get that out of the way from the very beginning. Happy New Year & all of that. Same old resolutions and all that good stuff. I don't have a good excuse....and it is pointless....I am busy like all of you & I just couldn't make time for this blog. I had a GREAT holiday season....cooked....decorated....created with my nieces & children....wrapped gifts....decorated mountains of cookies....& truly enjoyed every minute of it. The best part of it....I got inspired by all the hoop-la. I de-stashed!!! I organized & re-organized! I am set to go for 2012 & have been having a ball so far. Love is in the air around here! So XOXOXOX to all of you!


I had so much fun making these soldered heart pendants. They are made from snippets of lace, vintage French book papers, vintage sheet music, velvet flowers, glitter, and little pieces of Hannah silk ribbon. I love how they turned out.....I hope you do to. I can't wait to run them into Lisa's shop this afternoon. Love is in the air at Lola Rue too. Stop in for a peek if you are in the Bloomington area. Blessings for an artfully creative day.

It's so good to see you blogging Hope! I wish I was going to be around there to stop by and see your nearest treasures. I've spent the weekend destashing and organizing too and now I'm looking forward to some play time!

Hello, Hope:

I got to come thru Bloomington when I was with my KY friends for our weekend in Brown Co. We stopped in Lola Rue's and I got one of your sweet birds. Loved seeing all of your pretties. Kris
