Spring has sprung!


Spring really has sprung here in Minnesota. It's in the mid-60's today. It feels soooo good!!! Oh and yes, there was much more fun to be had estate saleing this weekend. I bought enough interesting stuff at the same sale where I found the millinery flowers and eggs that I shared in the last post, that I decided to make up some fun little ephemera bags to swap at ArtFest. Also found this lovely tablecloth for $6. I love this color combination. So Springy!! And the buttons below were in a large tin filled with all white/cream vintage buttons for $1. What gorgeous cards they are on!

I've continued to receive amazing spring artwork in the mail practically every day. This wonderful canvas piece is by the extraordinarily talented Tricia Scott. I just adore her style! The way that Laurie works with fabric is awe inspiring. She made this wonderful fabric scrap nest. So unique, creative and lovely!! She also filled the box with tons of other goodies that I can't wait to use for my creations at ArtFest. Thanks so much, morningk!

This tiny and amazingly detailed chandelier is by the new "it girl" on the blogging scene, Mary (Oh Merci). After her stunning tea party set-up, I think she now has a whole lot of admirers flocking to her blog!
This gorgeous card and adorable St. Patrick's Day ATC came from Angela. Love that fresh springy green. Beautiful!

So I'm in my final packing stages for ArtFest. Wow, it's almost here! I leave Wednesday morning, so I'm sure I'll post again before I leave. I'm sooooo excited!!!!

I just wanted to say I'm so sorry I didn't get to the tea party. I had every intention of coming but time ran away with me, and this is the first chance I've had to pop in. What a lovely day everyone had - I just wish I'd been able to come! Sue (Vintage to Victorian)
