White Wednesday and a Fairy Freebie

I am sharing some photos
from a trip to one of my fave places, Urban Barn.
This place is a must visit if you're in San Diego County.

I LOVE seashell art:

And I love the huge white paper roses on the wall:

I love all the hues and textures in this photo:

Love the seashell crown!
And...the way to make something cute--stick a baby doll head on it! :)

I wanted to leave you with another fairy image...

Isn't she sweet? Click, right click and save!

Take in all the loveliness of White Wednesday at Faded Charm.

Pink Saturday!

I wanted to share this last little group of pictures
from my wonderful day at the Vintage Marketplace.
With a bit of a Gypsy homemaker theme!

Choose a pretty little apron:

From all of these:

And whip up a little omelet
in your tiny kitchen in your very own
tiny romantic Gypsy trailer:

Who wouldn't want a wall papered with vintage greeting cards?!

This is actually the kitchen in another Gypsy trailer
with more of a boho theme:

Snuggle up here with a snack and a good book:

Or relax outside in the garden:

Ah, the gypsy life!

More pink fun can be found at Pink Saturday!

Vintage Marketplace

My theme for this week is Summer whites...
here are more lovely pictures of the fabulous
Vintage Marketplace I visited last week:

You had me at white starfish:

Some wonderful altered couture in here:

I love this little mini-gazebo:

Vintage glass glittered paper roses:

Best for last...what a charming way to display pendants:

Mmmmm...Summer whites...
it's almost like you can smell the fragance of fresh line-dried linens!
I will have more pictures next week!

Pink Saturday at Vintage Marketplace!

Last weekend Marti and I went to the fabulous
Vintage Marketplace in Rainbow, CA just north of San Diego.
It was a beautiful day to begin with,
and there was more beauty to be found at the market.
I'm going to reveal my pictures in themes, bit by bit,
because there are some gorgeous pics
that will make for some lovely future Pink Saturday posts!

This week will be my romantic theme:

A dreamy, sun dappled sofa to just fall into:

I love the vignettes that everyone stages,
it just adds so much to the romantic ambience.

It was a wonderful day,
and I will have more pics to share with you.

Thanks for visiting and for your comments,
have a wonderful weekend!

Treasures of the Sea Matchbox Swap

I recently participated in Vintage Dragonfly's
Treasures of the Sea Matchbox Swap,
and what a fun swap it was!
I loved the theme, and knew just what I wanted to do.

I made this little matchbox for Jennifer:

and stuffed it with shells and pearls,
a tiny bottle of aqua glass glitter
(with a teeny tiny starfish, seashell and pearl inside),
glass seahorse and silver mermaid charm:

and in return, I received this beautiful matchbox from Michele:

stuffed with shells, pearls, carved fish,
starfish button and coral pendant:

Thanks so much, Michele!
I am a big fan of matchbox swaps, as you may have guessed ; )
Can't wait til the next one!

Spring Inspiration Matchbox Swap

Hmmph! I scheduled this post way back,
as you can tell from the Mother's Day reference.

For some reason it did not post as scheduled,
and I didn't catch it.

But I'm still lovin' the matchboxes!!
And a they make for a lovely post for Pink Saturday!

What a Mother's Day treat it was, as I received BOTH of my matchboxes from Heather's Spring Inspiration Matchbox Swap this weekend! On the same day!

I received this box from Tabitha:

How cute is that little shoe?!

And this lovely box from Heather:

Look at that adorable china doll head and the little cherub:

Thank you Heather and Tabitha so much, I love everything!
Can't wait til the next swap, I am hooked on trading matchboxes!

Head on over to Pink Saturday
for more pink loveliness!


Freebie Faerie Friday!

Summer is almost here,
the days are getting warmer,
and faeries are out and about in the garden!

Wendy at BLISSangels is having a faerie shoe swap,

so I thought I'd tempt you into joining the fun
with a quad of faerie tags:

In fact, let's have faerie freebies all month long!
And let's not have them only on Friday.
Check back often, because during the month of JUNE,
I will be posting faerie pics during the week as well!

I am also excited about winning this adorable faerie pocket

in Wendy's blog giveaway!
Thank you Wendy, you are so sweet!

Check back later today for my Pink Saturday post!
