Playing Around

Playing around with scrabble words and little treasures...made these last night...
My Tiny Tears on my night stand and one of my baby photos and little Miss Kailee's photo. Yes her little fingers have been chewed on...my Mom made her this dress.

Shells, door plate, plastic gems with a glittered and bling starfish in my bathroom....

I went to a Tim Holtz "grunge roses" class last Thursday evening and made this. Too bad it has a horrible order and is in the garage...hubby and I both noticed an "order" and figured out it was this project... I have "grudged" things for years. I really just wanted to learn how to make the rose.
I'm hoping to meet my friend on Friday to have our lunch date at the General Store, aka "chick place"... keep your fingers crossed :) Yum...large popovers are calling to me..with honey butter!
It's a large store with awesome gift, clothes, treasures and restaurant! If you come and visit me, I'll take you there :)
Deb :)

Sweet baby doll and OMG the picture of you... how precious! I loved the project with the rose. Sorry it ended up in the garage:) Enjoy the "chick place" with your friend! Have a blessed evening!

Oh Deb, you were such a cute little girl, you looked like a little doll yourself!
The rose looks really pretty, and I would love to learn to make one.
Will you pass on your knowledge to all of us on how to make one?
Have fun at the chick place!

Oooooooooh.. I love the General Store and try to get there several times a year. They have the most beautiful things there and I'm anxious to see what new things they have for Spring. Hope you find some goodies for yourself if you are able to get there on Friday.

Your art project from the class is so pretty. I don't care for the new products for aging and grudging. I still use my chalk.

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!
Hugs. Sharon

PS I had a Tiny Tear just like that one! My grandmother would make her dresses.

Thanks for the visit friend. I have missed you!

Linda said...

I had a Tiny Tears too and just loved her. My last doll was Terri Lee...I still have her, no idea where my TT baby is.

The General Store sounds great...what time should I be there?? ~ hugs, Linda

Hi Sis ~ what a cutie pie you were and I love that Tiny Tear doll..I so remember those! My dolls fingers used to look just that one!

Wonder why that project had an odor? That's weird!

Wish I could come visit so we could go to the General Store...sounds devine!

Hi Deb,

Deb~seeing your Tiny Tears doll brought tears to my eyes. My sissy and I both had those dolls when we were young(er) and loved them. I still have mind. It is sad because her face is looking bad and her arms & leg are literally deteroriating. Maybe I will take her to a doll doctor. I have tons of clothes for her....some we bought but lots I have made.

Have a fun luck with your friend tomorrow.

Hugs, Cory

Only you could "bling" up a starfish and have it look so darn good!

Creative Breathing said...

Hi Deb, Do you think it is the glue? I have received projects from several people that do altered art, and can't keep their beautiful projects in my home at all. The smell is terrible. So happy you learned to make the roses though! Have a great weekend! Elizabeth

Queenie said...

Hey Deb!
Love the little scrabble treasures you made...there are so many neat projects to use the letters for isn't there?!

The baby doll and baby pics are so cute together....they are darling!

That General Store restaurant sounds like such fun...hope you and your friend had a great time.

Have a great weekend! fingers crossed that they'll be some yardsales around here...I think there are three in the paper but I think we are going to get rain...we'll have to wait and see. Happy treasure hunting to you...
Big Hugs,
