I've had an interesting day. We had a really bad storm here yesterday, we lost our power and a bunch of trees in the area went down- luckily none in our yard. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal, but I have an Autistic son that has to have things "how they're supposed to be". So when we had no power he totally freaked out. Couldn't turn on his ceiling fan, the lights, or the tv. Not good. So we spent the night at my parents. So glad they had power! The kids did great, but I didn't get much sleep. Came home today to power restored (yay!) and then the garage door broke. Ugh! Needless to say, it's been a bit of a stressful 24 hours. I was more than giddy when the mailman showed up with some *major* pick-me-ups from some of my blogger friends. As you will see, there's no way this wouldn't put a smile on my face! This book is a collaboration I did with Lilia and Marilyn. Lilia was kind enough to start another book for me when we thought mine was lost. Then it showed up, so now I have two books with her gorgeous work. Marilyn also participated in it and her work is always stellar and so awe-inspiring. Could I be any luckier?! First is my work, then Lilia's, then Marilyn's. They each have two books as well. Now my two are home and I'm estatic to show this to you. Enjoy!
But just wait...THEN I got a package from my new blogger friend Donna. I discovered her blog Under the Red Roof when she left a comment here. I love it when people leave a comment and I link to their blog and find a whole new world of inspiration! This was the case with Donna. Her work with vintage elements is absolutely stunning! Check out this collage she sent me below. She is such a sweetie. Thank you, Donna!
I would love to shop with her. She has the best stuff. But now we can all get in on it too. She just opened up her etsy shop. Yay!! Check it out here. She sent me some of her vintage wallpaper and tons of other goodies and the prints and colors are amazing. She even has a bunch of flocked wallpaper. Yum! Run over over and get some for yourself!!
Well, blogger friends...you always manage to turn my frown upside down! hehe. I hope you're all doing well.
