It's time my friends...time to LET GO OF THE WONDERFUL!!!


So...here's the deal.
I'm going through my amazing hoard...and listing TONS of stuff!!!
It's really time.
I've not been very creative lately but have SO many wonderful things!
Why not pass my found treasures on to another artist???




















This is just a FRACTION of my hoard so stay tuned my precious friends!!!






What else have I been up to?
Hmmmm, let's see.
My precious mother-in-law had a birthday SO
I wanted to make a wonderful gift basket for her!!!
Bedroom shoes to keep her feet cozy,
a fuzzy throw to keep her warm this winter,
hand wash and hand lotion,
yummy smelling soap,
the most wonderful smelling candle,
a coffee mug and since she loves wearing silver,
a container of silver jewelry cleaner!
SHE LOVED IT ALL!!! SCORE!



ALSO...I've been working on some wonderful lavender sachets!
They are for a precious friend of mine that will be a vendor
in the Country Living Fair here in Atlanta!!!
EEEEK!
My little handmades will be sold there!!!
Finishing them up this week for her.


And so it goes, this simple life of mine.
Thank you always for taking a peek inside!!!

Wishing you so much goodness and love,

xxoo,

These truly are the good ol' days!


Seems the older I get the more I realize
that the here and now,
the gatherings with loved ones and
the moments we all share together,
truly are times that should be treasured!
We need to cherish each and every moment
with our family and friends.

I found this gorgeous old painting the other day
and knew you would love it!
Artist: Sir John Everett Milais





It's been a while since I've received a gift in the mail but
last week, a box was delivered to my door and I was totally surprised!

Months ago a blog friend/reader emailed me wanting my address
that she was de-stashing and cleaning out everything and would
I like a few of her old laces and things. Why, OF COURSE!!!

I had forgotten all about this and when I opened the package,
I could not believe the beautiful gifts tucked inside!!!

The gorgeous embroidered net lace at the top center of the photo below
was her pram cover when she was a baby!!!

She told me she had no one to leave these things to and
knew I would appreciate it all.

Dear sweet Gina, I love it ALL!!! I've displayed the pram cover
in my studio, hung up the baby dress and coat...so I can enjoy them
each and every day! Thank you for your precious gifts, I'm so very honored!










And speaking of precious times with friends and family,
last weekend we had the most fun
at my son David and Heather's gender reveal party!!!
They are expecting a little boy!!!
His precious name is going to be Owen,
I cried the minute they told us that.
Another dear grandson!!!
She's due January 7th and it seems like the time is whizzing by!





Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to!!!

Hugs and love,
Dawn

A little something pretty and a new addition to the family!




I recently found these beautiful old images or rather paintings
that I knew you would love!
They each have a wonderful ethereal look to them.







So far we've had a pretty quiet summer around here.
We did have a family reunion last month and I snapped this photo
of our precious grandbabies Clara and Murray!
I just love these angels.




I've made a little bit of handmade soap for a few birthday parties...



And have even been getting back to printing on fabric!
There's definitely a trick to it, getting the paper to feed into the printer correctly
and avoiding paper jams but the results are always worth the work.
I created several lavender sachets for a local French restaurant that has
a sweet shop attached. She really liked them!





I also have a few that are listed in my Etsy store if you'd like to take a peek!
Filled with approximately 1 full cup of fresh lavender buds and adorned with
a little bundle of seam binding and a vintage button of course!







Another little tidbit of news from our farmhouse...
Our pair of diamond doves have a sweet baby!!!
Born just a few days ago.
We will see if it's sibling hatches too,
it was laid a few days after the first.
Neat, huh???





Thank you always for stopping by to see me!
I hope you are doing so very good ~

hugs and love,
Dawn
