I can't remember where I saw this, but coffee lover that I am,I thought it was brilliant! What a great gift this would be for that special couple that not only love each other, but also love their coffee!
I'm hoping to finish up these Kindreds this weekend - they still need at least a day's work. The one in front with the long sleeved black dress will be a dark angel for the ADO February angel challenge.
I know I'm jumping from one thing to another in this post, but it istitled "Saturday Snippets". On Thursday I was thrilled to receive several parcels in the mail. I belong to the Vintage Fashion Guild and twice a year we have a members-only yard sale. SOOOOOO much fun! From two of the members I purchased (at a complete steal) the antique handbags below:
The beaded drawstring one is in almost perfect condition. Unfortunately the beaded leather bag has a case of leather-eczema but parts of it can be salvaged. I think the small leather belt coin pouch would look great in a collage shadowbox.
Several weeks ago I finally got around to purchasing some back issues of some of the Somerset Publication mags, and I also received them on Thursday! I can't wait to delve into these! I love the inspiration I find in these mags and after seeing so many varied and talented artists on the OWOH blog event, I have a yearning to spread my wings and try out some different mediums and styles of work.
Before I close, I want to give mention to a giveaway on the very talented Lisa Gatz's blog
It is for the newly published Steampunkery book. I want this book and I hope I win, however it would be selfish of me not to let others have a chance too (right?). Either click on the link above, or click the button for Lisa's giveaway at the top of my lefthand tool bar so that you can enter too.
Okay, I'm off to have lunch and then out to run some errands!
