Hello and good Evening…

Img_4323I have not done a post in a week. Just a little catch up on what Ive been up to. My new Art pieces .. all silhouettes.

One of my good friends from Arizona came to visit, Kat.Love her. Met her through 2 Peas in a bucket ( a on line scrapbooking site)when I used to go to crops. I did not attend many of them, because I talked too much to get anything done. We have been good friends since then. I have been blessed with some great friends through the Internet (my Mom thinks its weird and dangerous).  Kat and I enjoy Artsy things together and everything vintage and Shabby. Together we have torn Phoenix apart searching for the perfect vintage items. Not too many of these people in my Life that are willing to dig through a bin of tattered fabrics and God knows what else! Took her to my Favorite Japanese Dollar Store….I think she kind of liked it. Filled her suitcase with lots of little bento boxes, adorable cupcake liners and little things to pack a child’s lunch. Img_4311 She sent her 4 children, Yes that’s right 4 children ! a little I miss you card .. the one on the Beach with the I miss u Heart. This girl needs a little time to herself. Let her sleep in, poor thing. We also had a little time to Party for my dear Friend Alice’s Birthday. The table looked so divine, Mary’s style of course. This lady just whips these last minute parties like its nothing. here are some pictures:Img_4247_4 Img_4249 Img_4251 Img_4253

Beautiful Party. Alice deserves it. Speaking of Birthdays, Mine is next Sunday. I will be having a Birthday Bash give Away with lots of goodies!! Please leave a comment on my Blog by guessing My favorite TV show in 1978. I will give you a hint: it is not a cartoon and I was 8 years old…….I guess that is 2 hints. 2 People will get presents! I did get a little present of nostalgia from my friend, she found my Cowboy twins book!!! Yippee!Img_4317  she said it was the hardest book to find.  Thank you friend. Well you are caught up. Filling silhouette things in the Shop this week and working on a new Art Journal class kit, here is a sneak peak:Img_4321 Bye for now!

    I was going to say Little House on the Prairie or Charlie’s Angels (my fav as an 9 year old in 1978 but I couldn’t watch it b/c it was past my bedtime) but they’ve both been said, I’ll try for something that hasn’t: Wonder Woman.
    Happy birthday from a 9-year old in 1978! Melissa

    Happy Upcoming Birthday! The first show that came to my mind when you said ’78 was Mork & Mindy. It was one of the most popular on t.v. (gee, my hubby even has the DVDs ‘cuz it was one of his faves).
    Glad you got a vintage book you were looking for…I love to find my old faves, ‘tho some titles still escape me.
    Love that green candy dish on the birthday table…looks like it was fun.
