Common Ground? I just love her blog, her style, and she's a wonderful inspiration to all of us! Debra's been hosting a wonderful link party (Vintage Inspiration Friday) every Friday for a while that I love to link my projects up to and visit all those great inspiring bloggers out there. If you haven't visited it, you'll have to check it out this week...

After working on several painting projects the last couple of weeks, I thought I'd take a little break and work on some jewelry projects...painting dining chairs can do that to you! A few weeks back, I posted a tutorial on how to make typewriter jewelry, including these unique little bracelets, but I thought I'd share my recent batch with you.

If you ask my sweet little kindergartner, Lily, "What do you want to be when you grow up?", she'll quickly reply "An artist!". She's also a girl that craves a little color and like most girls her age, her choice is hot pink and I have to admit, since most of our home is neutrals, it's super fun to inject some happy color...

Since I do quite a bit of crafting, painting, and jewelry-making, I rely so much on baskets with labels to hold all of my materials, while looking cute at the same time...
They are also perfect for holding pretty ferns, potted plants for the porch, and my "branch arrangements" that I like to use....
Unique shapes and sizes of baskets seem to be everywhere - from old locker baskets at the flea market, to new woven ones at a discount store. I've had most of my baskets (which I've never paid more than $10 for any of them) for several years, rotating them around. I'd say that's some serious bang-for-your-buck...no wonder I love them!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I wanted to let all of my readers know how extremely grateful for all the sweet and wonderful comments that have been pouring in for my recent posts, including my daughter's room. I feel so fortunate that it was featured at some wonderful blogs this past week. Even though I've had this blog for the last couple of years, it's only recently that my life has settled down enough to nurture it and I can't tell you how much I've enjoy it! In many ways, I'm a newbie blogger and I'm still at the point of feeling so much excitement for every comment that is left for me and thinking, "Wow, they really like it?!" Since moving across the country and leaving behind family, friends, and all the wonderful antique shows that I was able to be a part of, I've feel as though I've lost a little part of me, but blogging has really helped give this stay-at-home mom a bit of purpose and the ability to connect with such kind, talented people. I really look forward to all the sharing, learning, and inspiration that the wonderful world of blogging opens up for us.
