Getting Closer

Soon after learning about the fun of antique mall shopping I began looking for a special kind of bowl that belonged to my grandmother. My mom cherished it until it was sadly broken long ago. A couple weeks back I stumbled across this pretty little etched pink depression glass bowl very much like it (if not identical) only much smaller. The minute I picked it up I could not set it down and knew it was coming home with me. It even has a couple little character chips to add to its charm.

Crafternoon Fun Folder Journal!

My sister hosted a fabulous afternoon of fun for her knitting clutch and invited me along. She showed us how to cut, paste, sew & glue this colorful folder journal from a manilla file folder. Mine turned into a birthday gift for a friend. I may have to make a couple more of these! Thank you Linda : )
