I BELIEVE IN PINK...............

Hello Friends. I am guilty of Blog neglect! Time slips away when a busy life enters the picture. Here's an update.... I have been very happily working many more hours these days at job I absolutely LOVE. (We just celebrated an anniversary last weekend & it was such fun!)
I have been out junkin' with a dear friend, working on projects for my booth(s) & have started in on Spring cleaning! Even though it still feels like January outside, I am encouraged by the sweet little pink Cherry Blossoms & happy little Daffodils that have surfaced.

Well, about my Post title... I purchased this fabulous sign yesterday at the best place around; Any guesses? This sign really hit home with me. So fun, so positive. It made me smile. Though, I do have to admit, it's the only black item in my house amongst all of my white & pink. That's just fine. Maybe this item will lead to more masculine tones. HA!
Have a wonderful Spring everyone! It officially starts tomorrow! Hugs, Raylene

Love is All Around Us.....

Valentine's Day to me is a holiday that celebrates love. What is it to you? What do you love most about Valentine's Day? Could it be the chocolate....? The roses....? I'd love to hear from you!
Please join me for "Show and Tell Friday" over at the beautiful My Romantic Home blog!! Don't miss out on this creative fun!

 I hope you enjoy my latest inspiration. I found these adorable sets of "angel" wings a few months ago at Camas Antiques and I just had to have them. I didn't know what I would do with them at the time, but these little beauties just had to come home with me. I started out by making these sweet little millinery flower cones. I liked them well enough, but they still needed a little something..... once I added the wings, then the cherub, I LOVED 'EM! What do you think? Don't you just love music sheets? It has such a simple elegance~kinda like a string of pearls with jeans~. I'm in love with little frames. I have been on the hunt for them for years. The scrolly ones are my favs. I remove the little glass squares from the frames to make 3-D art. I came up with a few Valentine themes this go 'round. The bottom photo is of a Valentine garland with pink glittered letters. Simple elegance & some sparkle. I'll be sprucing my booth in Camas tomorrow and these goodies will be on display. I wonder if they will find their way into anyone's heart this Valentine's Day?
Blessings to all, Raylene

Some of my Favorite Things.........

It has been way too long since my last post......Ooops!  With the holiday excitement over, I've been a little blue. It didn't help becoming ill just after Christmas.....all better now! My creative juices are flowing again thank goodness. There will be some creations in my next post, not quite ready now. I have wanted to share some pics from around my house of.... you guessed it, some of my Favorite Things. The first pic is a little chalkware couple I absolutely adore & will take to my grave. Lol!! Next are photos of my beloved Blue Bird China dishes & a few other Blue Bird goodies. The next three photos are of collections of various trinkets that I have not been able to resist during my outings searching for those special yesteryear leftovers. My whole house is filled with sweet bits of the past. I feel so fortunate to have these treasures in my everyday life here in the present.
Blessings, Raylene
