Favorite things...

Those of you that know me well, know that I especially love a few things in life: After God, Family and Friends comes chocolate, ribbon, sea shells, lace, roses, beads and purses - old and new.  Robin was sweet enough to gift me the vintage golden handbag - THANK YOU ROBIN! - and Caleen is amazing at whipping up fabric flowers, so she gave me some suggestions -THANK YOU CALEEN!  Today I finally got creative again.  I feel like my creative side has been sleeping the summer away - - like it's in a coma or something!!!......I had a great day today making "roses" from scrim.  Another one of my favorite things - scrim.  It's gauzy and flowy and a perfect shade of ivory.  Anyway...thank you friends for helping me to get in the mood to make something.  I think I will use this purse too!  It won't fit much more than keys, a driver's license and my cell phone, but what more could i need?  The chocolate won't fit, but that'll be melting in my mouth!
