Just A Touch Of




Our area is blanketed in snow as many other parts are also... The snowplows have done there jobs and roads are fairy good and schools are in session today... Tom is outside plowing our driveways and cleaning sidewalk and decks... He will have a good work out today... I am doing laundry as we expect the well drillers to come and hook up our new well maybe tomorrow... May be without water for several hours and may have to run for hours to clear the well up... Right now it looks real good...Health officials will come in a few days and check it to make sure all is well. When Tom went for a permit to drill a well he found the permit was almost 400.00... We were in shock... The well story and success to be continued....
I created a couple small items to share with you... I had a old book cover in my stash that I used the back for another project and thought I would create with this one... I found a smaller very old photo and the cover and started.. I loved the old book cover and the lettering and details so I used it as was and added the old photo.... a couple different pieces of laces and a piece of stained muslin tie that someone had wrapped something in and I placed in stash for recycle. A addition of a chain tassel from a old earring and a piece of old earring front was added for embellishment... So simple... About half an hour project but it did turn out sweet.... The little heart and scraps of lace were cut from song book pages and hung from my mica snowman that I had left out to enjoy longer from Christmas.. The snowman ... snowballs ... and vintage rhinestone mica covered tree fits in perfect with today's snow covered wonderland we have in our area.... Oh what fun it is to create from stash at no cost... I need to find more inspiration and keep using the stuff I have laying around waiting to be re purposed.... Hope you all are warm and safe in your homes and enjoying the good life... Blessings...

What a lovely creation this is! I'm so glad we finally got rid of all the snow that's been "bothering" us for the last few weeks, but there's more to come, no doubt :-) Have a wonderful day, Ira

The snow is definetly blowing and swirling around today! I had to pay some teens to dig my driveway out a little while ago. Good luck on your well! Stay warm inside!~Hugs, Patti

You have just inspired me to pull out an old velvet photo album I have tucked away and do something fun with it. Wish I was as talented as you and using bits and pieces. You did a beautiful job as always.

Dear Marietta,
I love your Winter Wonderland decorating. Pretty, Pretty!
I have a little snowlady dressed in pink that stays out throughout January.
I hope everything is ok with your well.
Stay warm!

What a beautiful project you made in such short time. The old book cover is a perfect backdrop. LOVE it. We are shoveling out of snow too, the weather people say more is coming this weekend.

What a beautiful collage, and heart. Lace is so transformational, like the snow. We are about at the end of the snow and cold here in N. Alabama. I am glad and ready for spring. I hope your well works!
Stay warm and happy!
Love
