Having Fun In My Studio Today

I have to admit, I count my blessings everyday. As I sit here and blog, I can smell the sweet scent of Jasmine coming in through the family room door. It's just beautiful and reminds me to not only stop and smell the roses, but also to be grateful for being able to do what I do......bringing you lovely items to enjoy. What a life!
This is my latest creation, a glass vanity bottle, decorated with lots and lots of pretties.
Working (maybe I should say "playing") with strands of faux pearls, crimped seam binding and lots of handmade as well as silk flowers, life is certainly a joy each day and working in my studio becomes not work at all.........just fun!

The topper has been painted a creamy white and decorated on one side with jewels. I also layered pearls around the top. Pearls, flowers, ribbons and glue, what more could a girl ask for??!!

This label is one of my favs. I added some little gems to the bottom and also surrounded the edges with an opaque glitter. Yummy!!

My latest pillow creation in lavenders and purples. It's a roll pillow with added blooms on the ends. What could be more romantic?

Isn't she just lovely? Surrounded by ribbons, flowers and hummingbirds. Soft and romantic, you get the feeling she is from another time.....
Below the image, this one of a kind pillow is embellished with an applique pearls and sequins.

Lots of pretty flowers on the ends.

This pillow has a double ruffle and the ends are a beautiful, sheer fabric.
What a day and I am very happy. I hope your days are as fun filled and bright as mine was today.
Thank you for stopping by and these two items can be found on my website, Someplace In Thyme.

  6. Char, the topper with jewels stole my heart! I'm a sucker for anything that resembles a fleur de lys & don't get me started on sparklys!! I can't believe I wasn't following you but have just rectified the situation!
