aND ThE WinNeR iS........................


Congratulations! You are the winner of
my first Give Away.
I'm so excited that you will be receiving
one of my chandelier art canvas. I'm hoping
you will enjoy it as much as I did
creating it. I will be contacting you shortly.

I have a very colorful flower garden which has blossomed on
the top of my guest bedroom's bed!
Actually, it's covered with all my newly created infant hats
and headbands. Being anxious to see them on, I convinced
baby Sofia to come over and model a couple.

Sofia was getting tired... it was naptime. So, I had some difficulty
getting a good shot of the headbands. But you can get a little
glimpse of one of them here.

remember when I gave you a sneak peek
at one of my new creations
for the holidays?

I purchased some small vintage bottles quit some time
ago and have also kept a stash of found objects that I
just keep adding to, knowing that they will find
their right place somewhere down the road in one
of my creations.
After seeing similar ones that were created by
artist, Sue Pelletier, I knew this is
what I wanted to use my bottles for.

I had very little experience using Paper Clay but
found out that I just love it. I felt like a kid
again.....rolling, squishing, forming the clay.
Each little quirky face slowly evolving into
it's own personality.

I will be adding these little men to my Christmas inventory.
I can't wait to

display them on my table at the Believe Boutique
the beginning of November.

Thursday night my favorite decor store, Designer Blvd., held a
Of course, I had to be there. I'm never one to miss out on a party!
And this one was a blast.
It's always a delight to enter their shop. It is continually changing with
new inventory arriving weekly:
beautiful displays
unique merchandise

wonderful, friendly staff.
Carol (owner) and Vanessa (manager) greeted their guests
with this yummy table of goodies!

Then we were off and running....
there was so much to take in
it was total candy to the eyes!

Not only do they carry darling, inexpensive clothing, purses and jewelry,

To top off the evening, they were giving away door prizes
every half hour

and yours truly WON!
Is this not a "kickin" bag!

On Friday, Hanna had her 5 year old birthday party with
five of her girlfriends at Create Your Own Joy Studio. OMG!!! Kelly, the owner,
out did herself. She prepared the most outstanding Fairy party for the girls.
She made them beautiful pink tutu's and pink satin hats. The girls got to decorate
their hats and made flower wands. They were in heaven! Instead of birthday cake,
Hanna had cupcakes with glitter on top. It was such a fun afternoon for all of us.
I will post a few pics as soon as I get them. We topped off the evening with
dinner at Red Robin.

Tonight Hubby and I are babysitting our granddaughters
while their mom and dad enjoy an evening out with friends.
Dinner, a swim in our pool, a board game and then bed.
All makes for a wonderful evening.
Here's wishing you an enjoyable and relaxing weekend!
XOXO Nancy
