Its Easter at Tillies Attic

The weather is so pretty. I love spring in Arizona. I get Spring Fever bad and its so hard to drag myself to my job. I would love to be planting flowers or sitting in a chair reading a book. I also love Spring decorations. I was at Tillies Attic this weekend and Spring has definately arrived there. Its so pretty. I thought I would post a few pictures. I also wanted to share some information with local crafters. Elaine from Tillies still has a few spaces for rent in the store.  If you are interested you can visit her at the shop or call her at 480 775-4342. The address is 1941 W. Guadalupe #111 Mesa AZ 85202. (SE corner of Guadalupe and Dobson)
I hope you all have a pretty spring day and enjoy some flowers!

Last But Not Least

Wow, what a gorgeous weekend!  I cant believe its already Sunday night. It was a busy weekend, but lots of fun.  Its hard to stay indoors and take it easy. So I may have over did it this weekend. I finally got some flowers planted on my front porch area. Now I love walking up to my door.  No garden, no matter how small is complete without a gnome. This little guy has been following me around for years!  I also got around to a little sewing. I am making bunnies and got this one completed.  There are more in various stages of completion.  It was overcast today and it was a little hard to get some good photos.

And last but not least, I am so happy to finally say my studio is done! Well, about as done as can be. I imagine it will always be evolving to some extent. I found this pink table cloth and chair cover at Bed Bath and Beyond. I even had a $5.00 coupon, so it was much easier and cheaper than sewing one. I got the glass display cabinet at a garage sale. I got the dress form and ballerina dress form for Christmas from my girls. Most everything I keep on this table is for display and I really like having different options. There is lots of storage under this 6ft. table.  I finally found some pink taper candles at Pier One, on clearance too, for the "chandelier". Some day I hope to have a big, beautiful real chandelier, but for now this makes me happy. Its officially my studio now that I have a sign to hang. I made this on my last trip to the ceramic painting shop with my Grand daughter:)  I have done my spring cleaning ~ planted my little garden ~ have completed my studio: I am ready to get to some serious creating now!  Now if I just could figure out this 9-6 job thing that is cramping my style. :) I am working on a plan about that, but for now I will get up and start my Monday, thankful I have a job to go to. I hope you all have a pretty week! Happy Creating.

The Colors Of Spring

This is the time of year I love living in Arizona. The spring begins early for us. Its time to plant flowers and the sun is warm, but with a crisp feel to the air. I wish it would stay in the mid 70s everyday. I would never get tired of that.  If I didnt have my family and friends here I think I would be tempted to move to Maui :) I have a fairly large patio that I cant wait to plant a container garden in.  I cant decide if I want to have a mixture of colors with geraniums, pansies, snap dragons and many more, OR if I want to stick with a color scheme. My patio furniture is white and pink. I guess I will have to get out there and see what inspires me.

I have been working on some new creations getting ready for spring. Tomorrow its Make Mine Pink Friday. If your new to my blog, this is an event that  the shops at Make Mine Pink have every friday. Its a themed day of shopping. The month of march is "The Colors Of Spring".  Be sure to check out this link tomorrow to see what the different shops will be offering.  I am sure there will be lots of pillows, jewelry, garden art, vintage items, all with spring decorating in mind.  Each friday there will be new items listed. Ahhhh, Spring Fever has set in, but I must get going and get to work. I hope you are have a beautiful spring day too! Make Mine Pink Friday
