>For one of my trading groups I decided to do a “Kitschy Kitchen” theme. I love all the 50’s and 60’s kitchen stuff, much of what I remember as a kid. I collect vintage and vintage-like tablecloths as well. I found some great stamps from Crafty Secrets and I resized and printed an old recipe card I found at an antique shop in Maine several years ago. The papers came in a paper pack but I can’t at the moment remember the company name and they’re in Florida. The 3 1/2″ by 2 1/2″ card opens like a little file folder. Don’t you just love the little measuring spoons from Alpha Stamps on the twill bow? Fun!
>It’s has rained the last two days and I’ve gotten a couple projects done. Today was glorious and it feels like fall has definitely arrived! Crisp, cool air and blue skies!
Here are some pictures of the Halloween Postcard Tags that I made for a Red Lead swap. These postcard tags are really nice, you can find them at Red Lead Paper Works, along with the images I used, the charms and the rubber stamps.
>I know I haven’t posted in awhile. My mother was doing so much better but on September 4 she had a stroke and died on September 6. I am so saddened by her death, she was not only a mother but also a friend. I had to rush back from NC and my sisters came from Maine, North Carolina and one lives near me in Florida. So it’s been a rough couple weeks. Also, Jay and I came down with horrendous colds, we’ve been living on Sudafed and Bufferin! We’re going back to NC tomorrow for most of October and look forward to enjoying the fall weather. I’m about to start working on Matt and Jen’s Save-the-Dates so I’ll be posting some pictures of them soon. Here’s a photo of my mom with all of her daughters: (from L to R) April, me, Mom, Diane, Lesley. We miss you Mom!
