Swiss Painting Signed Artist Postcard

Lovely painting on this postcard.  But I hope all your snow is gone and spring is here.

The Camper's Journal - Write it Down, Memories

I love this mini camping journal I bought at an RV store.  I was going to give it as a gift but kept it and will probably have my niece fill it when when she goes RVing with us.  This book is about 2 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches and has crisp clean pages to write on.  The cardboard cover is heavy and has a crisp outdoor feel to it.  I even wrote a review for for this book.  There is a larger Camping journal available from the publishers journals unlimited.

Happy Easter with Singing Chickens Postcard Friendship Friday

I may have chosen this postcard last year but it is one of my favorite postcards. The baby chickens are so cute singing away, under the direction of Mother Hen. A Joyful Easter to Everyone and also Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

If these chickens are running around my house I would never see them. The weeds are so high from the heavy rains we had a few weeks ago and need to dry about before we can get out the weedeater and lawnmower. If there are eggs to find on Easter Day I will never find them in the weeds. There are a few pretty wildflowers mixed in with the weeds, lupine and shooting stars. I am ready to get out my gloves and start working in the garden. The cats are happy with the catnip plants I just put in pots.

I have been busy doing spring craft projects among working on my Ebay auctions. I went shopping for Easter Egg Dyes but instead of using them on eggs I dyed plain ribbon and fabric strips into colorful Spring Embellishments. If you did not see them scroll down a few entries and you will see the lovely ribbons just waiting for a project! ENJOY SPRING.  To see more PFF entries go to

Quilting Patchwork and handmade Cards

Its such a beautiful day I took my goodies outside to experiment with my digital camera.
Hyanciths (I believe) and a spring has spring tag.

All I need to do is add a binding to this table mat. It is made from Hoffman Bali Pops.

Miniature Photographs Northern Vermont State

This small packet which contains the 8 photos has a stamp box on the back side and lines for address but today it would be too small for mailing. I like these tiny photos (2 1/2 in by 3 1/2 in)k because they are actual real photos.
I would guess these mini souvenir photographs are from the 1950's or 1960's. They originally sold for 25 cents.

Dyed Ribbons, Fabric Cuffs & Flea Market Finds

I dyed these ribbons with Easter Egg dye. It was a fun project, cheap and easy. I got this idea in Somerset Life by Stampington and Co.

Went shopping the other day, garage sales, consignment store and a Flea Market.
What fun finds, jewelry, vintage beaded trim for sewing projects, pins, wild handmade earrings, and even a Postcard.

Fabric CuffsAnother idea from Somerset Life.

Finished and ready to finish fabric cuffs.
Glad I was able to add three entries for today in my blog. I get such wonderful craft, sewing ideas from the many blogs I read. And blogs about collecting postcards are of great interest.

Rving with the Snowbirds, Laughlin Nevada Postcard

We have stayed 3 times in this RV park connected to the Riverside Casino in Laughlin Nevada across from Bullhead City Arizona. 750 spaces and mostly empty the first 2 times we stayed in the summer. We received this postcard last month with a special one week getaway. Well we went for just 2 nights after Presidents Day and the RV park looked just like this picture. FULL We did not have reservations but got a space for 2 nights. (cancellations) Just run your finger a few inches to the area at the lower left hand corner for our space. Its off the postcard. This park and others were full. It was 73 degrees and license plates on the RVs were from all over the United States, especially the cold states. 2000 at least RVs in the area. But fun fun and more fun with a great buffet. Also the shuttle boat took you across the Colorado River. Our 8 year old niece wanted to go out of state so we accomodated her. A fun trip in February.
