Feels Like Fall

Hi Everyone!
I just spent all afternoon outside with my little one. She pulled me out and I'm glad she did. We spent an hour just sitting in the sun on the front lawn of the house, - laying around in the grass, wrestling and just doing nothing. Totally relaxing and totally what I've needed lately. I've been trying to teach her to whistle with a piece of grass between her fingers like my Mom and Dad taught me. A happy memory. Anyone else out there able to do it? It does take some practice!
And look at these beautiful tags I received in the mail yesterday from my friend Tracy over at Tied Up Memories. She uses kraft paper for the backing which makes them look like leaves which I think is so cool. I hung them on an old twisted wire tree that I bought a few years ago at a church sale but haven't used much until now. Check out Tracy's beautiful Etsy shop here.

Another one of the tags on the left in this picture is from Laura over at Busybee-Laura. I did a Halloween swap with her and she sent me the tag with the purple spider on it and the MOST beautiful Halloween apron (and many other wonderful Halloween goodies!). I wish I had taken a picture of it but it's been put to use many times already and it's hanging downstairs in my pantry! Check out her Etsy shop here!: Gigi Kay.
And last but not least, I was thrilled today to have one of my pieces featured on the front page of Lollishops! Sadie Lou sent me the sweetest note and then I went to go see it - set amongst the most beautiful things ever! Go check out Lollishops if you have time - it's worth the trip!

See Laurie! are getting more famous with all these!
I can whistle with a blade of grass & also, with a little piece of paper (hold the paper taut). I can't really describe how to do it but I can show you though so come on over & bring the little one & the 6th Grader too!

Wow so much exposure lately - that's great! Love the tags and your new little house. Spending time outside is what I need as well. Glad you took time to do it. The other stuff can always wait.

Hi Laurie! Congrats, your piece is just adorable!...I used to be able to whistle with a piece of grass, but I haven't tried in a very long time. What a good memory you stirred up out of the cobwebs! I love all those tags...and that wire tree too! Hugs, Paulette =D
