Blogging Friends Craft Day

 Last week, Debbie Kay came for a visit. On Friday, Tammy & Erica came over and we had a craft day. We had a fun time and made Christmas treasures. We are all on instagram now.




Debbie Kay blessed me with all of these goodies. She is very sweet and kind. This is the first time we met and it was like we have been friends for years. We have been blogging friends for 9 years. She lives in CA. We went to estate sales, antique shops, thrift stores, out to eat  and other fun shops.





Tammy came with some crafting goodies to go along with my huge Christmas stash that we used to make some Christmas treasures.

.

We made the spoolie girl and  Tammy had made the spun head, a mini cloche and fun Santa from a decal that Erica had. We scanned it so she could keep the original.  I haven't finished my Santa, he needs some embellishments.


Erica gave me this fire king cottage cheese bowl that I have wanted for awhile. I LOVE IT! and pretty washi tapes.

It was great fun with these girls who have very kind hearts! THANK YOU, Friends!
XO,

Seaside Mantel & Question


I just LOVE the ocean or to be at a lake. There is something about the water that is calming! Since I can't be at either...my seaside mantel will have to do! :)





The green and white fish is for appetizers. Isn't that sweet!




Full shot of the mantel. The lady on the fish I've had for a few years. She is a flower frog. No marking on her.

Do any of you remember "A Swap for All Seasons" blog? It was where we exchanged a card, tag and bits & bobs in a color of the swap. I have been thinking of having one for a few months, starting in August. I will do a special post at the end of the month that will have sign ups. Anyone interested???

I hope you are enjoying the summer. It's going by so fast!

AND... Debbie Kay is coming next week to visit! We have been blogging friends for 8 or 9 years. I will certainly take some photos of our time together.

warmly,
deb
