Twyla Tuesday

Hello my dear friends! Allow me to introduce you to my new girls.

On a weekend trip to a flea market I ran into some of the cutest, sweetest little figurines I've ever had the pleasure of finding.

This one is a little granny with glasses on.

I bought this birthday angel for my mom who's birthday is in January. It's by Lefton.

The holiday season is quickly approaching. Christmas is now less than two months away. It's a time that makes for very busy days and we have to do decide between the want-to-do's and the need-to-do's. This Friday night we'll have our annual Halloween party. This year I am going to be a witch. I found my costume by getting pieces from thrift stores and flea markets. We'll be sure to take pictures and if they're not too embarrassing I'll share them with you ;)

Lindsey and I are looking forward to the upcoming Christmas season and we are already busy at work on some projects that we will share with you soon.

Most of you probably know that Lindsey has her own scrapbooking blog called Lindsey's Paper Scraps. I am really excited about her latest post. It is her first tutorial and I think she did a wonderful job! Do go check it out and let her know what you think of her cute creation.

I just want to mention a dear friend of ours named Sarita. Some of you may have seen her name in our comment section, she doesn't have a blog, but emails me now and then. She has been very sick with pneumonia and even hospitalized. She is just not getting over it and I am very worried about her. I would like to ask all our dear readers to keep Sarita in your prayers.

Have a wonderful and safe week! Happy Halloween! Twyla

Fondly, Carrie

Everyone on the train looked at me very strangely as I read this post on my blackberry and squealed at these cute little figures - I just love them!

I was lucky enough to find April, my birth months figure when I was in LA last year!

Lindsey's tutorial was great and I will def give it a go.

Best wishes and prayers for Sarita

Love your little finds like always! And I will pray for her!

Oh, all of the girls are so sweet, especially the Congrats one!
Yes, you're right, it's about to get crazy, like it always does around Christmas time. It definitely requires getting priorities in order!
Prayers for Sarita.

Oh gosh. Reading the name Sarita sent me back to being fifteen years old again. I went to school with a girl named Sarita, she was on the cover of Seventeen magazine and I think she was the most beautiful person I've ever seen, took your breath away.

Sending prayers and wishes for a rapid recovery for your dear friend Sarita, and sending you hugs Twyla.

Nan said...

Will do on the prayers for Sarita.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I'll keep her in my prayers, too. It's so hard to get over something so serious. I love your new girls! My B D is January, too and I love pretty things like that! How special for your Mother! It's fun to find something beautiful for those you love!

Lindsay-ann said...

Your new little figuries are adorable Twyla. My favorite is the one in the pink dress who looks surprised. Hope your halloween party goes well. Jessica is having one too, she is going to be a yeti this year! I will pray for your friend.

Hi Twyla,
Your new girls are adorable, I really love the granny!
I do hope your sweet friend Sarita feel better soon, no fun being sick and pneumonia is a real bummer. Did I just say "bummer" ok. now I'm showing my age. LOL.
Enjoy your week,

Love the cute figurines!

Sarita is so sweet. I was wondering why I hadn't heard from her in awhile. She will be in my prayers.

Ever so happy you popped in for a visit my way. I read through your delightful blog while I had my tea this afternoon and it was so sweet I felt as if I had a dessert to go with! Will include your dear Sarita in my prayers....

I love your tiny glass people of this type - I started to collect these beauties also. I found my first one at an antique store - she is very faded but I bought her anyway. Have a wonderful rest of the week.

A quick hello from the library, Twyla! Sorry I'm a day late!

Praying for Sarita! ♥

Here's hoping your friend, Sarita, gets well soon! That is so sweet of you to ask for prayers in her behalf!

Those figurines are so darling! They are endearing, in fact!


Heidi Ann said...

Oh, my gosh! Those little "Girls" are among my favorite things, as well. You certainly found some special ones, Twyla! That "Congratulations" one is the very same as my "Happy Birthday" girl that Tina gave me! LOVE them - thank you for sharing them with us.
