More Hearts, Hydrangeas, Home Decor and Giveaway Reminder

I was the very lucky winner of this gorgeous fabric from
(A Fine Seam)
(thank you just so much Jillayne - what a lovely thought!)

recently and loved it so much that I had to purchase more!
It inspired me to create more Hearts like these below:

adding burlap, vintage laces, an embroidered hankerchief

dyed scrim, tulle, netting

and this beautiful metal embellishment
from Liz included in an order I purchased from her 
Etsy Shop - visit Liz here to see her very 
 French inspired Blog and then over to
her shop.

Some more beautifully green tinged hydrangeas
(originally in blue tones)
were ready for drying

as well as these ones which were originally
in pink tones
And yes - another Heart but this one is flat
and backed in chocolate coloured felt
with more burlap, vintage laces
a suffolk puff and chiffon rose
dyed seam binding, guipure lace
and scrim
And just a pic of a couple of recent trays
I purchased
which I find are so useful for a number of projects
(as well as serving cups of tea on, of course!
or the odd glass of wine!)
as well as two small metal plates.
Somehow these items of metal, wood and silver plating
with etched glass on the clock seem to co-exist
very happily together!!!!
There is just one thing else to mention
and, that is,
of a Fabric Collage

so if you would like to enter before 29th Feb.
please go to the previous post
leave a comment there with your email address
so that I have a way to contact you!

In the meantime,
remember that:

"happiness is a way of travel each day
and not a destination"!

  24. Hello, I love your blog giveaway and have my fingers crossed that I win. You can contact me at yourcraftbook@gmail.com.

    As a digital artist I really appreciate the creations that are made from images like mine and other digital artists. Beautiful work and thanks for sharing, Maureen.

  25. Your hearts are really stunning. So beautiful made. Lve the pics of the flowers and decoration.

    Have a nice weekend

  26. I really love your work and your blog. In the most recent issue of Somerset Studios ART JOURNAL, someone created her own idea journals with photos cut from magazines AND found on the web. I wanted to ask your permission to print a few of your photos for my own personal idea blog. I do not intend to publish them or try to sell them. I may, however, PIN IT/you on Pinterest. Your work is worthy of the whole world to see.

    BTW, I entered your most recent blog giveaway. Would love to win. Even the postage stamps from your part of the world would be fantastic.

    Thank you for being such a great artist.
