Sharing and Creatin!

Hey thar Sweet Bloggy Friends!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me today.

I found 2 of the most beautiful handpainted plates
on Saturday when a sweet
friend and I visited a Large Antique Mall in
Northville, MI.
Best thing of all, I paid $4.00 total for them both!!!

I just can't resist an handpainted plate!

Then I have been tackling a looooong list of crafting projects in
varying many unfinished
ideas are now becoming a reality!
Do any of your creative peeps do this? I will
go in a see them all ready to be worked on...
and....then I leave!  Well, I am so glad that
dry spells are not permanent!

Would you like to see a few things I finally finished?

I so charmed by this sweet praying lil figurine!
but... for about a year she remained on my shelf...
I did have an idea tho.

My idea: A sweet Childs prayer I learned 50+ years ago.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
That lil figurine and prayer became what you see,
that was my idea! yea!

Then  on Tuesday I shared a sweet Tea cozy that my sis gifted me
many, many years ago...
well I have a stack of
cozies waiting for me to make..
this was the first
one I tackled and I am so happy with how it turned out.

This is such a purty creamy 2 toned textured fabric that I knew
would work well with my cozy!
I then fashion a sweet rosy pin to add onto the front
Creamy Cozy Perfection!

Oh and I had so share some current Chloe
pix...she spends many hours of her day in our
family room, snoozing, purring and talking with us
on my covered coffee table.

So if you talk to this sweetie...she turns and talks to ya
until ya just have to pet her!
My lovey dovey girl!

Thanks again for stopping by!

I love your prayer box and the tea cozy is so cute. Not being a tea person, I have never seen one! What I really want is sweet Chloe! I have a talking cat also!

Your creations are lovely and so is your sweet purr baby. My Gizzie talks to me too.

Kitties are funny like that, aren't they? My mother had a cat that talked to her. It was so funny because they actually understood one another.
Your new plates are lovely but I am LOVIN your tea cozy! That is just the purtiest thing ever! Do you know I don't even own a tea cozy? I'm ashamed to tell you that! But yours is just gorgeous!
Thank you for sharing it with us. Now, I'll be wanting one just like it.
My son and his family will be arriving tomorrow so I will be away from the computer quite a bit over the next two weeks. I will try to stop in and visit you whenever I can. Have a wonderful weekend, girlfriend.

Guess what girly girl? I have that exact plate (top one!). I love it.

My daddy believes his kitty talked to him.
