The Sweetest Things...

Hello, Sweet Friends o' Mine! I have oh-so-many yummy things to share with you today! Are you ready? Pull a chair up, don that sweet little pink bib I've laid out for you (that's vintage quilted satin, mind you!), pick up your pink-handled ice cream spoon and here we go!
First off...




























Remember this little fabric book I made a few weeks ago? The lovely Amy of Inspire Co. bought it and I embroidered the cover per her request. I just LOVED her idea..."The Sweetest Things"...isn't that just darling? Read what she's going to use this little book for here.


And look what I have for sale in my etsy shoppe! Something similar to Amy's book but with a little vintage fairy twist...




A little whimsically-sweet book for your whimsically-sweet thoughts and ideas. And I


will personalize this book for you (my treat!) in any way you would like!



All made from fabric, this little book is sure to be a keepsake. Features lots of little pockets (I've told you I'm a compartment/container/pockets, fiend, haven't I??) for holding the ATC cards I'm including with this book (also made by me) or whatever little snippets or supplies you would like to keep in them.


Here's some more pages...pockets galore and lots of vintage images on fabric, rhinestones and vintage laces and trims!


The spine of this book is my favorite part...tulle, ribbon, fibers, buttons, beads and baubles!








Don't miss the fairy and wand charms hanging at the bottom...











Some sweet details....








Vintage image of a doll embroidered to vintage image of a butterfly...plus hand-beading on the wings! If you are interested in this little bookie, pop on over to my etsy shoppe!
Also in my etsy shoppe today, a Pink Fairy and her Pink Bird companion...both wooden tags decopauged and embellished.








And look at these delicious treats! These were made for me by the darling Becca of Of Bluebirds and Roses for Angelina's Christmas in July Card & Tag Swap! Boy did I get lucky! Aren't these just lovely?



Here are the tags Becca made...














And here are the cards! Notice the hand-painted envelopes and the details she added to the cards....incredible!!!!





























Thank you so much, Sweet Becca! Your swappies are on their way to you! I can't wait for you to see them...I had such fun with this swap!
Well, Sweeties....thanks for popping in today to enjoy some Sweet Treats with me...there'll be more tomorrow...I have almost finished the Quote Contest winners' little gifts and I can't wait to show them off!
