Card Making with the "Gals"

These are from the Thrift store that I went to on Thursday. 2 sweet towels, round grater, trim and glass jars for more crafts:)
One of the gals, Jeanne came with a birthday gift...lovely kitchen towel with rooster, vintage chicken puzzle piece, vintage card, pen and pencil set and these sweet very tiny kitchen tool magnets...too cute!! Thank You Jeanne...love you!!!

I set the table in the sun room with the table cloth Pearl gave me...so pretty...it was too cold to eat out there. When the weather is better...this is where we will eat. I'll show you more photos of the porch later. I call it a porch when it's really a "breeze way" because it's between the house and garage. It's a warm and sunny room in the summer and it's my favorite room when the weather is nice.




These are the cards that I made on Saturday. I wanted to make more...however busy talking and eating with the gals :) I should have taken photos of what the other gals made...I forgot !!!
Still looking for Spring here...would really like to get going with the outside projects..
Take care.
Warmly,
Deb :)

Oh Deb! I'm way behind!!! When did you change your header? I love this!!! It looks great. I love the letters "s-a-l-e". That looks so cute!!!

You are really quite good at making cards. I'm very impressed! Sounds like you had a really nice time.

Hi Deb...
Another Awesome post! Ohhh how I wish I had Thrift Shops here like the ones you visit... those towels look brand new! Love the glass jars 'n trim... Nice Birthday Gifts from your girlfriend... the Red Rooster Towel is Stunning! Someone sure did an excellent job with their needlework on that one... and I just Adore the Chickens Puzzle piece... so many different things you could do with that!

I'm so glad you were able to use your "new" Birthday Table Cloth... I think it looks so pretty... and I noticed the Lovely Spring Tablescape you created... nest, tulips, bird 'n seed jar... All looks Terrific!

Where-oh-Where do you find all of your energy?!? I'm amazed at all of the cards you made... they're just soooo Pretty... of course, the underwire bra cards are a total HOOT(er's)! LOL ...You really should sell those!

Hope you're doing well, and that the "boys" are behaving themselves!

~hugs 'n prayers~

I'm loving that redwork piece! I've been looking for things like that but so far have been unsuccessful. The hunt is on though and I'm sure I'll find some!

The birthday gifts from Jeanne are so sweet! I love them all! It looks like you got a lot of cards made to me. You must work fast! You know, you really should start an etsy shop and sell cards! I am the same way about my sunroom. It's my favorite place in the summer (except when it get's too hot!) Hope you have a fantastic day! Twyla

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...
