Hello Friends!


That's pretty much me these days.
I have been leveled by a monster cold this week,
and tapping away at the keyboard is pretty much all I manage.
And...oh my gosh...where do the hours go when you're on Pinterest?!
Or I Can Has Cheezburger (cute pet pics)?

Oh, but I do have some things to share with you...

I received these lovely journals from my partners in
Speckled Egg's Altered Journal swap.

The gorgeous journal I received from Ros:


And the very lovely journal I received from Kim:


I love them, thank you Ros and Kim!!

I did finish my vintage button brooch for a swap
in the Marie Antoinette Mail Art group:



I have it pinned to a fabric tag in the picture,
I think they look pretty cute together. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by,
and you may like to stop by White Wednesday
where you will find lovely links to lovely whites :)

Time for a couple of freebies:

Have a great week!

Lorraine, every single one of these is charming but your brooch tops the charts! It's perfect.

I do hope you feel a bit better soon -- seems to be the time of year for not being at our best. I hope you're lively and perky in no time at all!

Happy Pink Saturday Lorraine Sweetie...
Oh what beautiful journals your received. I love the little lady with a cloth embroidered dress, how elegant she looks. Her wings are so exquisite.

The Cherish journal is just as beautiful. I love the little crowned girl and all of the feminine touches. Just priceless.

What a beautiful job you did on your tag. It is so pretty. It is truly fit for a Queen dear friend.

Have a glorious weekend dear friend. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

Hi Lorraine - Visiting from Pink Saturday and was drawn in by Marie to visit you. Such beautiful work you do - and what incredible journals. I'm trying to move into this realm - but fear my own writing projects will take the time away from growing truly proficient in these marvelous collage mixed media works. Been collecting supplies for years with good intentions - but - little time to indulge. Such a lovely and inspiring visit with you, here - am following. Hope you'll stop by and visit me at The Writer's Reverie!
Joy!
Kathy
