I’ve been working at and creating "pretty stuffs” for Indie Lulu Living, a new shop here in Osoyoos BC. Well, its the most fun and inspiring place that little bits of it have been coming home with me… haha BIG bits too it seems. Here is the couch (pictured in the shop when it first arrived)
Isn’t it wonderful??? Really I had no idea at all if it would “fit” with the rest of my decor - but sitting on it is what made me decide. This is one of the sort of vintage couches that cuddles you, inclines you, says “come read a book” upon it.
Lucky for me, it “goes” nicely.
But yes, little bits do come home, and you can see some of the wonderful wares in the coming days if you visit our new blog - http://indielululiving.blogspot.ca/ We will do our best to bring you new (and vintage and one of a kind) items over the coming days so stay tuned. Better yet, perhaps you might “follow” our Indie Lulu Blog and then we can bring new treats to you daily too!
So I’ve been pretty busy with trying to get the social media happening, but I did manage to bring off a pretty Mother’s Day card today too - and I’ll share it here.
Playing in Paradise #63
The theme: Fabulous Flowers
Here is my take:
I printed the sentiment myself using Segoe Print font and cut it using my Silhouette SD.
Not sure what this designer paper is.
I am not sure which embossing folder made the strip - made that at a visit to my sister a way back. (should have taken notes!)
The tulips are a cut from the Silhouette store made by Lori Whitlock. I shaded the blossoms with wisteria shade of ColorBox Cat’s Eyes Chalks (latest treat to self!)
So a pretty simple card on the whole and I’m happy to have completed it in a day and posted too.
I’ll leave you with this good thought:
It is my joy in life to find
At every turning of the road
The strong arm of a comrade kind
To help me onward with my load.
And since I have no gold to give,
And love alone must make amends,
My only prayer is, while I live -
God make me worthy of my friends.
