If you have not yet visited Kathy at Kathy's Cottage, you need to go visit her! She is a wonderful friend and so talented. She sews sweet hearts, adorable birds and so much more. Well, I fell in love with "Maggie" the magpie.
The package came wrapped in tissue and the sweetest butterfly seal.
Inside was Maggie - sitting in her nest upon some pretty green vines. Maggie, being a magpie has been gathering shiny items to feather her nest, like the vintage pin and black checked ribbon. Kathy showed her sitting in a vintage cup and saucer and I loved that idea, so I found one of my favorite transferware cups and saucers in the cupboard and I love the way it looks! It is going to be perfect as part of my redecorating, painting and fluffing!
It seems I spend more time buying things for my house or my studio and nothing special for me. Well I decided to buy myself a Mother's Day present. So, I went to visit Joy, at Cupids Charm. What's a mosaic artist, who loves china buy for herself as an indulgence?
Inside was this beautiful china pin, made from vintage 1930's china. Is this not the cutest thing? I am thinking how great this will look on a jean jacket. Joy makes great necklaces, charms, bracelets and more from vintage china. Take some time to visit her, I know you will fall in love with her creations!
I am off to go visit all of you. I have fallen behind on my blog hopping. See you soon!
