Summer Scarves and an Invitation!

Hello everyone
Happy Monday to you all!

Yes, I'm still knitting scarves,
and yes I know it's about 90 degrees outside
I'm hooked on those beauties
and with the new summer yarns it's
double the fun!
 Beautiful Araucania/Alumco yarn I bought at a Fiber Fair.
 Metallic beauty.
 Love the sparkles!!!

 Yarnes by Patons and Isaac Mizrah 
(found at Michaels)
who can resist these fabulous colors! 

Last but not least I would like to take the 
opportunity to invite you to the
7th Annual Blog Party of
"Where Bloggers Create 2015"
hosted by the wonderful
Karen Valentine of
                                                      My Desert Cottage
Hope to see you there,
I promise it's tons of fun and
you will meet lots of fabulous creative folks
and take a peek into their awesome spaces!!!

Thanks for stopping by,
hope to see you soon!

Have a great week!

A Vintage Father's Day!

Hello everyone!
I hope you all had a great start to your week!
Work is keeping me busy,
with the end of the budget year looming 
by end of this month,
things tend to get a little topsy turvy!
So you can imagine,
how I truly treasure every minute in my stamp room right now,
my little sanctuary keeps me sane.

Today I would like to share my 
"Vintage Father's Day" 
card with you.
 Vintage car was stamped with
Tim Holtz "The Journey" stamp set.

" Established 1873" from Stampin'Up! set 
"Established Elegance".

 I think the card came together fairly well,
what do you think?

A while back I promised myself  I would not
buy another plant I had to bring inside to 
winter over!!!
In my household cat's and house plants
do NOT mix very well!
Well, a visit to the local nursery 
and ...
... well you know how the story goes!!!
This adorable Gardenia went home with me!!!
 First bloom... beautiful...
...and I wished you could smell it...

Thanks so much for stopping by,
wishing you all a great week
A Wonderful Father's Day weekend!
