A week or so ago my friend, Debra, at Common Ground did a post about her space at Spring Creek. While looking at all the photos of her lovely things, I spied something that I had to have. I commented and asked Debra about this treasure. Long story short, we struck a deal and today it arrived.
Oh gosh darn it, forgive the reflection of my Kansas sweatshirt (given to me by a former student who went to KU undergrad and perfect for me because my brother-in-law was on the football team there.) Don’t you just love this beautiful old print? The collie has found the lost lamb. Dogs, sheep, lambs – I love them. The frame is old and beautiful. The only reason Debra could part with this is because she has one of her very own. By the way, Debra has a gorgeous home. I got to know her through Vintage Black Fridays and was amazed by all of her wonderful vignettes. Thank you, Debra – and thank you for the box it was shipped in. I promptly recycled it to ship out my part of this swap:
Now, I am very new to the swap business. This swap is all hearts – pink, white or red – everything has to have a heart on it or be in the shape of a heart. The only other swap I’ve done was with sweet Elyse. We called it a mini swap. I am not a crafter like so many of you talented bloggers. I stand in awe of your skill. Most of the things I included were vintage. I did, however, step out of my comfort zone and tried a bit of crafting. I’ll share photos with you after my package has been received.
While searching for vintage hearts, I found this for our kitchen:
Thank you for all your advice as to my bulletin board – so many fabulous suggestions! I still haven’t decided what to do – most likely I will make another one. Then I’ll have 2 – and the freedom to have a piece of art and an inspiration board. Thank you, friends.
Have a wonderful day.
