Baby! Vintage Marketplace! Altered Peat Pots!

Hello Friends! 

Life has been very exciting around here!
The much awaited, anticipated Baby Colton is here!
Not without some drama and scares,
but Baby and Mama are now doing great!
They live about 1 1/2 hrs. from me,
so I have been going up about twice a week
to feed the parents, tidy up and revel in my new grandson!
Boys are new territory for me,
having had two girly girls,
but my heart is so full when I'm with him:

I know!!
He is a such a good baby as well!
Loving the whole Grandmother thing.

The fabulous Vintage Marketplace in Southern California
was held the first weekend in March.
I love it, it's so inspiring, a great shopping opportunity,
and a chance to catch up with some favorite vendors.
Here's a brief tour:

A closer look at the lovely ladies:

Fairy garden magic:

And of course it was a lovely day.
Looking forward to the June show!

I have been involved in a number of swaps lately, as well!
Here is an altered peat pot I made for my Paper Soiree group:

Covered the pot in a little French text papers, a little lace and a little burlap.
The bird is a wood shape which I covered in text,
on a wood birdcage, which was stamped in brown ink with a text stamp.
I was not able to attend the meeting, but I was delighted to receive
this adorable peat pot created by Michelle:

I love the fabric wrapped wire, and the twig with the birdie on it,
thanks so much Michelle!
I have another peat pot to share,
but I want to wait til my partner receives it,
plus more swap fun to share with you,
so please check back soon :)

Hope Spring is making its way to you,
especially to those of you who have suffered a harsh winter!

I fell in love with peat pots a couple of years ago on Karla Nathan's "karlascottage" blog -- yours are inspiring me to get mine out again and jaz them up for Easter. They're wonderful and I love your bird, too.

Thanks so much for the lovely images! Just in time for Easter creating!

Congratulations, Lorraine! He is beautiful! Those booth displays are gorgeous. I've been working on a few peat pots myself.

What a wonderful market. I see so many beautiful things to love.

But, the most beautiful of all is your new grandson. He is gorgeous! I know you are in heaven.

Happy Pink Saturday, Lorraine. I am so glad you joined us today.♥

Congratulations on Baby Colton and becoming a Grandma. It truly is the most wonderful role we play after being mothers. I miss all the amazing boutique events that So Cal enjoys. Looks like lots of eye candy and inspiration and shopping to be had. Lovely peat pots...both given and received. I mailed your ASFAS package a tad early and hope you enjoy it. Creative Bliss...

Among your pretties, that little fellow is the prettiest of them all! Just precious.
