Hello, Dears!

Well hello there, my bloggy pals! I am hard at work, filling orders and putting the finishing touches on some exciting new Halloween-themed creations I think you will just LOVE, but I wanted to pop in and remind you to go take a look at the incredible Silent Auction to benefit the sweetest of Sweets, Little Ava Grace. From the moment I heard her story I have had a "pull" to help in my own small way...and now you can, too! There are over 60 artists who have donated to this auction and any one of these incredible pieces of art would make fabulous Christmas gifts or be lovely showcased in our homes. Take advantage of a wonderful opportunity to help a little one who so desperately needs it...and get a lovely piece of art, to boot! You can see the entire auction here. To go straight to my offering, go here. It's based on one of my favorite quotes about children, by Charles Dickens:
"It is not a slight thing that they who are so fresh from God, love us."

The quote and some lovely bullion roses have been hand-embroidered on linen. "Baby Asleep" and "Baby Awake" images on fabric surround the quote and the whole piece is framed in a shabby-chic white frame with a decopauged mat. This piece was such a joy to create and comes straight from my Mama's Heart. :) Here's a few photos...



And I have to show you some of my FAVORITES from among the incredible offerings donated to this auction:
First, "Baby Bunting," by the amazing Christina Crocker of Deerfield Farms. This piece is BREATHTAKING...


Second, two ADORABLE "efflelumps" named "Hope" and "Luck," by the lovely Blondie Spence of Vintage Primitives....


"Jenny" by Stacey Ann Mead of Raven's Haven
"Blessing" by Suzanne Davis of Pear Tree Primitives
Aren't these pieces just amazing?? See many more by heading here! And say a prayer with me that this week will bring an outpouring of generosity for Sweet Ava Grace. The auction will be held from now until Saturday, September 22nd. Feel free to ask any questions you have and if I can't answer them, I will find the information for you!
Come back and visit me again tomorrow for MONDAY YUMMIES and a special "sneak peek" of my Halloween pretties!!

Found your site via the Vintage Stocking Swap and blow away with all the wonderful creative things you are sharing here but the bunny sure takes the cake, what a cutie

OH I just realized what bunny you're talking about, Pearl Maple! I agree it is sooooo sweet...but I'm afraid that's not mine! It's available through the Ava Grace auction, though, which is still going on until Saturday evening! Thanks so much for your sweet comments, everyone!!!!
