FABRIC and PAPER ART FROM MY HEART


Out in the Prairie where the wildflowers grow and the song of the birds like melody flows, there's a peace God bestows that brings joy to the soul...

GREAT FINDS AND A POCKET JOURNAL



Took a few days off to do some more thrifting and catch up on some art work. The first picture is a
Pocket Journal I made, which will go in my Etsy Shop, loved how it turned out.

Second is a very nice Purse/overnight bag I found at our local Market Street Days. The lady does such great work and uses mostly vintage fabric.

 Third is a highschool Autograph book from the 1930's (They use the phrase FORGET-ME-NOT quite often, I just love old stuff like this.


And last is this cool white Enamel Pitcher for only $3.00.
A snowy day here again in Wisconsin, but very pretty big flakes.

 Happy day to all.
 THINK SPRING,
Carol Mae
