...Details! Details! Details! Did It Involve Lampshades?

Lampshades you say? Well...let me share a story! 
This past Thursday, Three genteel Southern Ladies from South Carolina and two of Georgian's sweet Southern Belles met up in a Southern town called Commerce which is located in Georgia. 
The proper ladies planned this get together for tea, friendship and to do some old fashioned lace making called tatting, using shuttles and threads. These ladies with their talented hands and fingers turn those simple threads into beautiful fine laces. As these tatting shuttles flew, the ladies shared some of their current of events.

Well, we are stirring up some more fun this coming week-end and we decided to start the week end sooner! Tomorrow!!!! There were for of us the last time... Sandra, Catherine, Sharren, and myself. We have a new trouble maker joining us this time and she is Marie (I think that is her name).
After reading my past blog of the event... I made a mental note to pack up that wine bottle opener so that the mishap will not repeat!! Also, I'll be further away from home this time. We are invading Commerce, GA this time around!
I'll pack the camera and tatting stuff... I'll be back to post about this fun time! Adios... Look OUT Commerce...we will be on our way!

...After a Long Hiatus!

I finally added some of my "stock" to my etsy shop! Everything and everything is made by me!
I am trying to get back to making things. It is good therapy for me. I like sewing, crafting, tatting... ahhh the list could really go on and on. I am blessed for having being surrounded with generations of creative and artistic talents!

Anyways.. I needed to have an outlet for all the creations! Or I'd have no room to roam in my home!

There is a widget to the right of this blog that show various of items that are for sale at my etsy "Yesterday's Scraps, Tomorrow's Treasures" shop... for your conveniences !

...A Mailing Box Turned into a Treasure!

From time to time I would receive samples in the mail. In this case, it came from Kashi and I tried their snack bar.

I am always intrigued with unusual shapes of packaging and always keep them, in hope of doing something different with them for later use!

With some decoupage and fabrics.... and a bit of imagination...

TA DAAAAAAA... a pretty treasure for holding things in.... like my tatting kit!
