smitten again

One of the reasons I bought this vintage stamp set from my friend Linda Marcov of Willow Nest Farm
is this one stamp!  
I know, I know...there are over 30 other stamps in this box, including all the letters of the alphabet, and numbers....but it was THIS one stamp that put me over the edge!
I know you know what I mean.  
I can't tell you how many times I feel this way when I see a little bit different string of gemstones, or an eye catching necklace, a piece of vintage brass chain, a stunning rhinestone brooch,
or even something as simple as a charm.  
This is just how I felt when I saw my *FIRST* baby rose.
 Yes, I am smitten. 
Just take a liitle look over on the design blog to see how I've been using some of the little darlings as I get ready for the Summer Soiree.
You will likey =)
(btw...Jill is having a sale.
Her chain is 15% off until Sunday, June 20.  
Use promo code JUNE16.)
Jill is also looking for a piece of jewelry you designed that makes your heart sing...perhaps using the baby rose charms!
It might just show up on the design blog =)
Send your jpeg format photos to brass bouquet.

How sweet those roses are. I am going to have to check them out. I know exactly what you mean about the tiny little details that we fall in love with. Love it!
Hugs my friend

Wow, that stamp set is one of a kind! That is exactly the kind of thing that gives me chills & makes me break out into a cold sweat! I would be using that finger in so many projects. I have the pleasure of meeting Linda at Round Top last fall with Charlene. She was so gracious to us & her booth took my breath away. Thanks also for the tip on the brass findings. Lisa

Charlene said...

I LIKEY everything you make sweetie!!!! How was your week? Mine has been crazy. Still trying to get ready for the Studio Party on Saturday (oh my studio mess) & working on my swaps for the Mermaid Event. WHY do I always wait to the last minute to do these? I go to Paper Cowgirl Art Retreat but, it is local. AND I did NO SWAPS for it. Miss YOU! And tell sweetie that we have had NO chance to do a thing about the trailer. Hubs has worked EVERYDAY! Poor thing is worn out & this heat is brutal. HUGS! CHarlene

Oh Lady Di,

I'm quite green with just a bit of envy. And no wonder you are smitten!! Just the picture of your stamps, ooze personality. All those hands that have touched them, all the creating they were used for, all the ideas they absorbed. The positive,creative energy. Oh how very lucky you are!!
