A Treasure from Dawn

I've been looking at Dawn's Tutorial's (the feathered nest)for some time and finally purchased one and I LOVE it! If you've been on the fence on ordering one, go for it, they are wonderful!!! The directions are wonderful and the images I recieved are the most gorgeous I've seen! Next time I see one I'd like I won't think twice, especially for the price ($10) it's a steal ;)

So thank you Dawn, I'm one happy customer! Now to just find the time cause you all know, there's just not enough time in the day to create everything we'd like!

Art In The Garden Show

Okay, now that I have my Blog back like it was, wow, that was scary!
I'd like to mention that this is an awesome show for me! I've been in it for about 5 yrs. and it's one of my favorites! Robin Crego and her husband own the shop in the front called "Garden Delights" and it is DELIGHTFUL! Just jam packed with everything for your garden. The one picture is one of their garden items I had to have! They do an awesome job putting this show on and ALL the profits go to the
"American Cancer Society's", "Relay For Life"! Wish you could all come as it's just a delightful setting for a summer show!

Hope you are enjoying the pictures! GIVEAWAY COMING SOON!!!!!

Wondering Around My Backyard

A couple of days ago I was taking photos of my jewelry and decided to wonder outside with my camera. Do you believe that picture of that Poppy? The picture looks like I used photo manipulation, I promise I didn't (don't even know how to). I took many more pics but I won't bore you with all of them!

I have an art show I'm in on Saturday June 13th and when that's over I'm having a "GIVEAWAY"! I promise this one to be the best yet! So stay tuned for the BIG GIVEAWAY!

Hope you're all having a wonderful week!

Look What I Found!

I have found and purchased from this shop and decided I MUST share it with my friends! Her name is Rhonda from "Parisgal56" and I've found some of the cutest creations there. I could buy everything! I've had wonderful convo's with her and am so excited to have found her on Etsy! So I just made my second purchase and have to share with you what came in the mail! The attention to every little detail such as glitter applied to the sweet pictures in just the perfect places! The little wire basket is just adorable, so cute I went back and bought a second one ;) and the cute little bottle with with a french message...love it! I've purchased her cute drawstring bags with a stamp on them and love them too!

Would love you to go give her a visit and maybe even a heart♥
The weekend is almost here and hope it's sunny and warm for all.....xo candice

New Name New Banner Coming!

Hi everyone! Changing my Blog name and I have a new Banner/background! So excited! Hope you all like it. I know I haven't been a very good blogger lately and I really have so many things to tell ya and talk about! I'm really a gabby person, lol. I've been so busy getting ready for 2 upcoming shows, I'm usually very busy at my shows so I need to be super organized right down to the very last detail. My daughter and a friend help me at my shows and so I'm constantly trying to improve so everything flows smoothly for them and myself!

Our little Maggie has been sick and needs to have surgery Friday. We've been worried about her, here's a cute picture of her!

Hope everyone's having beautiful sunny days! ox candice
