Monday and soooo many yummies to show you!

Happy Monday, Sweets! Oh my goodness...I have so much to show you that I don't even know WHERE TO START! We have Yummies of COURSE, plus I want to tell you all about something new I'm involved in called Joli Paquet AND I have some sweet piccys of last night's Pumpkin Party at our church. So how about we start with sweet little Pumpkin Party pics?? The kids got to wear their costumes and though I didn't get THE photos, I got some fun ones and will get more on Wednesday when we go trick-or-treating...

The Flower Fairies minus their wings...there were TWO bounce houses! So they looked more like ballerinas than Flower Fairies...
and a Sleepy Turtle....
And now....JOLI PAQUET (Pretty Packages)! Oh my gosh...I'm so excited about this. Cerri of Little Pink Studio wrote me and asked if I was going to Silver Bella. I'm not (deep sigh....) since my little guy is still nursing and showing no signs of stopping. The food source can't go traipsing off to Nebraska! So though I'm absolutely GREEN with envy and seriously in mourning that I can't go, I feel a little better after hearing Cerri's plan and getting on board with it!

Joli Paquet is a way for those of us who are not able to attend Silver Bella to get in on some fun "kits" that a group of wonderful, sweet, talented artists are going to be offering the weekend of Silver Bella! These kits will be available starting November 9th and oh my goodness...you are in for a TREAT. I was sooooo flattered to be included in this and am really excited about the kit I've developed. The gals involved in Joli Paquet are Cerri, Holly, Heather, Joleen, Lori and Heather and ME! Double-click on their names to see their blogs. A few of them already have piccys of their kits to ogle at! SO YUMMY, I tell you. So here's a little sneakie peekie at my kit....

**The Snow Queen**

I'll keep you posted with more details about all our PRETTY PACKAGES as they become available. And here's the Joli Paquet blog where you can find updates about all our kits: http://joli-paquet.blogspot.com/! But mark your calendars for November 9th, when all the kits will available for purchase.
And now for MONDAY YUMMIES! Hop on in my little cyber side-car and I'll motor you around cyberspace for some SUPER-SWEET shopping!

YUMMY THING ONE AND TWO: More Mussies by ME! :)
I can't get enough of these Mussies, I tell you! I've been busy making MORE Tussie Mussies and am having such FUN! Here's a few I finished, all made with vintage linens and mostly vintage trims, as well.

Southern Belle #2 (SOLD):
This was made from the other end of the same lovely vintage runner I used for another Southern Belle tussy. This one has darling pink repro ticking for the ruffle and vintage crocheted blue and white trim. The bow and handle are a new (but oh-so-yummy) wired pink ribbon that is so crisp and luscious.Twin Bluebird Tussie Mussies (still available!):

These two were made to match from a vintage runner, as well. Aren't they just precious??? The ruffles are made from vintage satin seam binding and the bow and handle are in simple white grosgrain.
YUMMY THING THREE: Darling Christmas Bells by ChiChilala Designs
These are some seriously SWEET Christmas bells! I just love the vintage style, the gorgeous colors and the darling little details.

This is just beautiful. And it's on sale! YUMMY THING FIVE: Sweet Baby Shoe by Faerie Window
I am always enchanted by anything sweet Lori makes but this one is particularly adorable, don't you think? She says she can turn any baby shoe you might be saving into a custom little "shrine" like this one. I think that is such a sweet idea.

Aren't these so cute? I ordered some Christmas tags just like these from her and they are just TDF in person! I can't wait to use them. I haven't decided if I will use them on packages or string them on a banner type thing for the wall or over a doorway. But they are from a vintage coloring book and have the best color and texture. Plus added glitter!
I love this. I love how everything about this LOOKS vintage. Have I mentioned this is how I like to create? I love using all vintage or vintage-looking materials. I am always happiest with the end result when I follow this "rule"!

YUMMY THING SEVEN: Fall Blosssoms Sweater Set by WarmestWishes2U

This sweater set is one that my friend, Randi, is selling on etsy. But this my Emily in the photos! She modeled for Randi last Fall...so much fun. I have to tell you, this sweater set is possibly the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen on a child. Truly. I seriously almost cried when I opened the package! I made the "frock" that is under the sweater set to match and sold several more to customers. I'm happy to see Randi is still offering this set as a custom. So perfect for portraits!My friend, Allison, made the gorgeous jewelry to match!

Here's my favorite pic of Em in the frock I made to match the sweater set. She's sitting in a chair that belonged to her great-grandmother and it just happens to match perfectly.

Isn't this darling? I love the details. She has lots of really cute pieces...check them all out.

And that's it, girls! I've got a messy house and lots of stuff to get ready to ship tomorrow, but darn it if I didn't finish my YUMMIES! ;) Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.

And have a YUMMY week!

Love,

Cheryl :)
