The Best of Friends…and a Giveaway!


Hello, dear friends! 

Oh my goodness!  I sure missed visiting with all of you the last couple of weeks—blogging is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?!  But sometimes it’s also a wonderful things to take a little time off…and now I’m ready to be back!

Just a little whimsical project to share with you today {I’m easing back in with something light!}…


…three sweet friends…my daughters think they’re a bit odd…but I quite like them!

I was inspired by this vintage photo found on Pinterest {my very favorite place to “hang out” these days"!}…

Pinned Image

… “Ghost Girls”, it was titled.  I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it…add a few of my favorite German china doll head images, of course!


I decided not to mess with their “ghosty” legs—or lack of legs—so I just covered them up!  Isn’t this trim lovely?!  It’s from “Recollections”, found at Michael’s…


…kinda makes them look like they’re on stage, I think!  A pretty black vintage button added, just for a little POP

And that’s about it!

Now for the fun part!  I think I mentioned in my last post that I’m about to turn the big 5-0.  On Monday to be precise!  So, I thought this would be a perfect time for a giveaway!


Some of my favorite crafting products to share with you…from Crafty Secrets, the new “Creating with Vintage Illustrations” CD and four sets of Creative Scraps—I just love those!  From Maya Road, a couple of mini chipboard albums to play with…


…and a pretty little charm necklace I made using one of the images from Crafty Secrets’ “Mini Vintage” Creative Scraps {included in the giveaway package}…


…isn’t that a pretty crown?!
