This darling cookie jar is my favorite for today that is. The little poodle dances on a spring when you go to get a cookie. I love the whimsy, the color and the fun of the whole thing. TeeHee.
When I was in France I went to a place I know how to say but could not begin to spell. I adore France and the people who live there. I never met a Frenchman (or girl) I did not like nor a New Yorker. They get a bad rap which is sad because they have delightful senses of humor!
Anyway, I bought this red enamelware set at a flea market in France and I fill it with fun things at Christmas and if I have time will have Valentines coming out this weekend.
The plate below it belonged to my Mother (from Canada) and is one of my most treasured items.
Now I can look at it each day.
We just had a family birthday party and I am sitting between my daughter in law and my daughter and my Granddaughter is in pink. I love being with them.
These pillows are from one of my patterns (available on my website) and a fabricline I did called Cherry Jubilee). They are in a chair I love and no one sits there because it is simple a fun thing to look at...haha.
The chef above is from Bavaria. I rushed off a tour bus and ran down the street because we only had a potty break. I wanted an Oberammagau wooden doll (King Ludwig) and thankfully, I found a shop that had one. I also bought this darling chef because I knew I could use him as a nice reminder of a lovely trip (in my kitchen). he is cute when he hangs as he is supposed to do but for now this is fine.
This silly chicken came from the Folk Art Museum in San Antonio. It was the only thing I could afford...and even he was expensive...but worth it as he makes me laugh.
The little people above were picked up here and there and they are my "cupcake buddies." There is nothing more fun and maybe creative as making cupcakes and giving one to someone with one of these funny little figures on it. It makes an ordinary day become special and isn't this what we all need?
I have lots more treasures and new quilt things and creative things to share, I do hope you will visit again.
Hint: I got a couple of neat things in the mail to show you soon....
