Sew Much White, and some green and red for you

A new collage.
(Can you see the influence that Dawn, at
The Feathered Nest,
has had on me, with a little pocket for my nest?)
This was sooo fun.

And a tiny nest for a friend.


I know I've been showing this lately,
but I just love it!!
Making more, and looking for more shoes to 'antique'.



Here is some white for you.

Little thread boxes.
If I already showed you these,
please forgive me and zip right past them. =)

Another White Thread Box

Sewing display.
Picked up tha black metal 'thingy'
for 50 cents.
Didn't know what i would do with it,
but this works for me.

White hankies with trim.


Yard Art at my friends house.

New planter boxes.


And talk about red!!!
This is anew display piece.
It is bigger than i thought it would be.
Not sure I have room for it. =(


I'm joining these folks today.
Please go check them out!!

I am loving the collage, especially the pocket. I wonder if I can make a paper one for my mixed media? You've given me some more creative food for thought.
