Who doesn't love the color and ahhhh- the smell of fresh cut grass. Sitting here buried in 2 feet of snow makes me love this Etsy Treasury list even more!

I should have been working on a commission today (sorry Emma!) but kept getting distracted by yesterday's post on Rebecca Sowers' blog. I'm joining her in scattering hearts all over our cyber-world. I stitched my heart on linen, with an old Japanese glass heart and antique lace, set in an old pocket watch frame.
These 2 rocks are among my most prized possessions. Given to me by my young son, he found them in a nearby stream. He came home that day, so excited by his treasures, and told me to close my eyes and open my hands. He placed them in my hands and simply said-
"I love you with all my heart"
So it is those simple words spoken by an 8 year old, and 2 found treasures that inspire me and lift my spirits when I'm down.
Have a wonderful weekend!

My monthly studio cleaning- you know-when I have to get rid of a few things in order to acquire a few more...I just listed some pocket watch parts and antique German doll parts in Mike's Etsy shop...
This old relic, with the crude inscription "Founded 1929 by Mahlon Lowell" has such a "To Kill a Mockingbird" vibe.
I love the old pocket watch frames- use to frame a photo or small stitched sampler.....
I love this little Shamrock lady- I've never seen one like her......
I'll be listing more doll parts all week so check back!
