Embellished Pillow Fun,Painting,Thank You's and Get Well Wishes too!

Greetings bloggy friends. This week finds me still catching up since vacation, and little by little, I am moving forward. After some time sick after vacation, I am on the mend and busier then ever. Thank you for the well wishes dear friends.

My studio is buzzing with painting fun and creating with lots of new treasures nearly ready to fill the shelves of my shoppes. Here are just a few new goodies for my shabby and chic collector friends to browse.
The first is a vintage santa box with berries and roses. His beard glitters with fairy dust. The colors of this is so yummy, coordinating, a soft tan, pinks and greens with a touch of berry pink.

And, with something always being created in my lap. I had fun while recouping and accenting some old pillows for my cottage. What a difference a few embellishments can make to update and give new life to a pillow favorite.
The first, is made from a darling dress collar my sweet friend Marydon from Blushing Rose sent me to create with. I also collect vintage buttons and this one is from a coat of my mothers in the 40's. Thank you sweet friend, I am having fun with the treasures you sent.

Lastly but not least, I want to thank my friend Sandi from Bearly Sane for this sweet blog badge. I love this gift from you, and even though I have been an award free blog for some time, I am so honored that you thought of me and sent me this. Visiting you is always a joy and inspiring. Take a minute to visit my friend Sandi. She is a very talented designer of bears. I also pass on this badge to anyone who would like to display it on their blog.

And, another sweet friend Lore, sent me this sweet badge too. Thank you Lore for this as well. You are so kind and I have so enjoyed meeting you and visiting your pretty blog. Take a moment and visit Lore too. She is very talented. The badge is about being a big women. Not in size, but in heart and character. Lore is all these as well and thank you Lore for thinking of me. I pass this on to my blog friends if you'd like to display it.

I also want to send GET WELL wishes to my dear friend Julie Marie from Idyllhours. She is recouping from kidney stone surgery last week. Best wishes Julie and continued prayers for your full recovery. Stop by Julie's nature inspired blog for a relaxing visit and inspiration.

Well, I am off to celebrate the birthday of a dear friend with lunch. Surely the best medicine for anyone. Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to getting around to visits soon.
Have a beautiful August day.
Blessings Be Yours,
Celestina Marie
