Discovering Honeysuckle Bloom!

With Summer just 8 days away, my "to do" list of home and studio projects, is getting smaller. Thankfully so, because more then likely, I will begin a new list. LOL!


I have shared many a project here with you and while I tend to work on more then one thing at a time, my studio received an update too recently. I'm not going to share that just yet. Next weekend, the 19th, Where Bloggers Create will be having a party to showcase the studios of many bloggers, so you'll have to stop back to see the whole story then. In the meantime, you can also join in the fun by clicking the link on my sidebar and reading the details.

Now, just what does discovering Honeysuckle Bloom have to do with all this? Well, stop back and see, but I will say it is a gorgeous new custom color I've been using in addition to the lovely creamy white shades I love to mix in my work and home.



I've been crazy busy painting a few old and useful pieces in my studio and added updates to my French toile style. All to be shared at the party. Today, I thought I would share a few peeks with pics!! I can't wait for the party, the wonderful studios around blogland will be so inspiring. It is going to be fabulous!

Here are a few peeks!










Lastly this wonderful tall deep basket has been with me for years and years. I love baskets with lids to paint. This one has graced many a design on the lid over the years and a few years ago I added a new pretty and painted her with my very soft light pink, also a custom color. This basket is filled to the brim with sewing projects I am currently working on. I'll share what's inside at another time, but for now, here is the basket and a few of my new pretties coming to my etsy shoppe later tonight.





Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a blessed Sunday and wonderful week ahead. I'll be in the studio working on many a new pretties and probably making that list of the next round of "To Do's"

Thank you also for your visit to my newest shop and your words of encouragement. You bless me with your kindness and patronage.
Till next time, Hugs, Celestina Marie

I will be starting to stop by a lot of blogs starting the 19th when the blog party begins. It sounds like fun, but this year I will just be a reader. I am catching up on my reading and commenting tonight. We had a wonderful day with family. Your sneak a peak makes you want to see more. Have a wonderful week. Your Missouri Friend.

Hello Celeste... I really did leave a comment yesterday, it appeared I think just below Marilyns, then must have disappeared... I have been having alot of trouble with blogger saying I have comments as well... infact, if you recall, some of yours did not appear, then suddenly they did... wish they would fix it! Anyway, your creations are just beautiful! And I love the pictures of Miss Beazy... xoxo Julie Marie
