I'm thinking about a give-away to maybe LURE someone to this blog! I'll be gathering some things and will soon announce the details. Surely you'd enjoy a give-away!

Oh, I wanted to show you these bird tags altho they have already sold. So many bird lovers and yes, I'm one of them! Birds, eggs, butterflies, flowers....I adore them all!

Ahhhh....we are getting some much needed rain! My flowers are dancing on their tippytoes!

Here are some new items I've put up on Etsy. You can find them in my shop "Bluebird Lane" at .
If you've never visited Etsy and you love beautiful handmade items, then you need to scoot over there and peruse a while. There are so many talented artists offering so many beautiful onique, one of a kind items! There are also a lot of run of the mill items so don't give up on searching! Wade thru for a while and you will surely find something that you can't exist without!
In fact, if I was good about blogging , I would love to start featuring an Etsy artist now and again. Maybe I'll just do that......
Have a lovely day my dear ones....and don't forget to count your blessings!

It's been a long time............

Since I last posted.
Thank goodness that winter is over and Spring is here! The lazy blossoms of the azealeas are finally opening up to show off their freckled little faces! Well, some are freckled....the large-flowered azealeas. I see buds forming on the gardenias, it won't be too long until their heady scent fills the air! And I'm so lucky! I have three gardenia bushes right here close to my studio. We have two large bushes inside the fence up front and at night, as the walkers stride by, you can hear them exclaim how heavenly the gardenias smell. It's nice to know that we provide a small pleasure for them as they take their evening walks.
I have a wonderful friend that I must tell you about. Her name is, well, we'll just call her the "16th Street Fairy"! She is the most wonderful friend that you could imagine! She made me the most beautiful Pansy Brooch, really, it is to die for! And Lavender sachets. The smell will whisk you away and settle you upon a star! It's divine! She has a secret source for the most wonderful lavender! But her handiwork, you would think that the sachet itself was an antique from someones greatgrandmother's box of treasures! Her handwork is superb and the styling is impeccable! I would love to see her sell them and the flower brooches on Etsy as she is incredibly talented!!!
Thank you again Sweetie!
Pictures soon to come!

Do you keep a journal?

Do you? I need to but I don't. But I DO make them....:) Here are some that I've sold on Etsy....

Yet more Halloween...

I used to sell on Ebay , must say I hate selling on Ebay! But I do love making things! Above are a few of the Halloween things I've made.....

I Never Tire of Halloween!

From ghoulies and ghosties,
Long leggity beasties,
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

I wish I knew how to change colors on's time for orange and black! What are your favorite memories of your childhood Halloween outings? I loved to dress up and see just how much candy I could manage to bring home! I loved then and still love the sounds, the smells, the colors of Halloween!

From last year...........

These are some little Halloween diddies that I did last year, I haven't had time this year to do any. Sometimes I miss not having any spare time.....

Some Halloween on Etsy....

Here are some Halloween items I have up on Etsy right now...
