Tiny Little World

I bought some tiny vintage deer. I thought they were bigger but now I'm glad they're so small. I made a tiny winter scene on a drawer pull. I have a feeling more will follow.

Vintage Cupcake Toppers

I bought the cutest vintage cupcake toppers from etsy. They even have a Japan stamp on their backs. So here's a little shot of something I made with them. Isn't that pumpkin guy the cutest? If I make anything else I'll add them.

Get Your Feathers Ruffled

Ruffles seem to be one of the hottest trends this summer. Here are a few of my favorites. Some use ruffles in unexpected ways.

This pretty ruffle ring is made from silk ribbon in a pale aqua. Very unique, wouldn't you love to wear this to a special gathering?

For me there is nothing cuter in the world than to see a sweet ruffled baby bum crawling on the floor.

This gorgeous ruffled tote bag is perfect to carry all of your summer essentials. Pretty enough for a party, durable for the beach.

And now here is a way to even have your cupcakes ruffled. Four layers of soft ruffles.

Pinwheel Treat Cups

This first one is a pinwheel shape made from crepe paper. The bow will be straight- the wind was blowing during picture taking.
The next one is a regular paper pin wheels I looked for yellow but the only light yellow had rubber duckies on it.

Everything's Coming up Roses

Today I was cleaning up a little bit and found some old shabby muslin fabric. So of course I had to stop cleaning and make some ribbon roses. That was hard to do since I love to clean so much and have to force myself to craft around. ha

I just love how imperfect and tattered these look. Then I started thinking of a the gazillion ways you could use them.

Decorate a tattered hang tag.

Use them to decorate journals, notebooks or scrapbook pages.

They look especially good with raw paper mache.

How about a vintage paper wreath?

So many different things to do with them, what else can you think of?

Easter Swap

Miss Rhea from
sweetnshabbyroses had a fun swap where you decorated recycled yogurt cups to make sweet Easter baskets. I had two swap partners which made it double the fun watching for the mail.

First up, because I received her package first , are the goods from

Closeup of the basket. I can never get enough of crepe paper. My hub said it looks like something I would make. He's right.

Here is a shot of the basket when it was full of goodies.

My favorite was the pretty pink rose clip.

And here are all the goodies. A small candle that matches the paper on the basket, a chocolate bunny (of course he's already gone, why do you ask?), a wand with a changeable scene, and some tiny lip gloss.

And now here are the goods I received from RebeccaHere are the things from inside the basket. Faux cupcake, pink mica flakes, accordion fold Easter booklet, ice cream bubbles and a glittered bunny wearing a rhinestone choker.

This faux cupcake was my favorite. I now use it to showcase my cupcake toppers in my shop. I think I may have hinted around for one. :)
Look at this lovely basket. Polka dots and crepe paper- things I swoon for.

Check out the handle, don't you love that silver peeking out?

I just want to say thank you to Rebecca and Taylor. You girls rock at swaps.

What I sent Taylor and Rebecca

Rebecca's basket is on the left, Taylor's is on the right.

See those cute as pie bunny girls? They were made by the cutest etsy shop.

For Rebecca

For Taylor

I'm thinking about this wand for a swap. Is it too plain? Too Foofy?
