Hello dear friends! You guys are the best!
You were so sweet to me last week when I was feeling so guilty about my hoarding issues.
Because you were so understanding and appreciate my collections, I'll share a few of my
lastest treasures. This Little Miss Muffet is from 1943 and by Napco. I think she is pretty rare.
No sticker left on this one so I don't know who her maker is, but she was too
cute to pass up ;) and I hoard planters, you know.
This prettly little girl in blue is by Lefton and is also a planter.
This is a little drawer I've used as a shelf to display some of my thrifted finds
and flea market goodies. Aren't the colors yummy?
I have such a passion for old prints and really have to fight my addiction to them.
This one is in such a beautiful wooden frame.
This is such a lovely lady in a beautifully carved wooden frame that I picked up
for a song. Don't you love that saying? If I'd had to sing for it, I don't
think they would have let me had it :(
One of the features that I used to love in Where Women Create is the interview with different artists.
The question that always fascinates me most is 'How old would you be if you did not know
how old you were?'
I've pondered this question a lot myself. I am thinking I could be very happy
being 40. As much as I dreaded turning that age, I really consider that to be the beginning of
a great period in my life. I'd just lost 100 lbs. and was feeling better than I ever had, had a great family and
and soon to buy our first home. Creativity has always been in my life from a very young age, but I
began exploring different mediums then. I painted murals, took up scrapbooking and rediscovered my
love for crochet.
Yes, 40 I shall be!
How old would you be?!
Have a wonderful day, my dears!
