Things have been fairly busy here lately - tied up with
gardening, bottling, preserving and lots of personal stuff in my life
at the same time I've spent snipets of time closeted away
in my studio creating a number of gifts to send
to some friends for Birthdays and Thankyous
such as this one
which went off to my dear friend Liz in the U.K.
In the parcel went a vintage heart along with
this little keepsake clutch purse.
I used some of this vintage brocade fabric
and created a flower from a vintage doily using
one of Julia's hand crocheted flowers
for the centre.
Another Birthday gift to Rosemary
a special friend of many many years.
A collaged broche
embellished with this dear little Kookaburra!
A thankyou gift for Cindy below
(cindy adkins whimsical musings)
Cindy is such a wonderful heartfelt friend
who created some angel wing earings for my dear friend, Andrea,
to wear during her cancer journey last year.
That truly was an act of love so appreciated by me!
Finally, another little "Thankyou" gift to Glenda
for the beautiful laces she gifted me with recently.
I feel very blessed to have friends such as
these in my life!!!
I'm linking these last two gifts to
Grey Dey Thursdey with Michelle at
Petite Michelle Louise's party.
So pop over and have a look at some amazing
grey gifts, makeovers and inspiration board.
I'm hoping to be a more faithful blogger again by coming
over to visit you all very soon!
I too have recently had a birthday and would like to
share some gifts I have received too!
Hope your grey skies are turning blue!
Big hugs, Suzy xox
