Hello! I have been waitng to post about this wallpaper pack that I ordered from Holly. I am behind in showing you this beautiful package!!! She gave up beautiful vintage wallpapers and a border! Plus vintage tulle millinery...I have several ideas to put this to use! P4270055
P4270056 You can see Holly's bussiness card in the lower left hand corner of the picture below.. She has used the image of a beautiful painting that she has done! P4270057
Before getting started on another project I must keep working on the diningroom/studio. This is making me nervous...Caitlin and I both want a studio space, however, this is needed as a diningroom also. I have been waiting over two years to paint this room and get my dishes and books back in this room. It is my favorite place to go in the morning (I get up pretty early) to read, plan, think, and to be thankful! I have a feeling I am not going to have the same space again. Well, "change it'll do you good" is how some song goes!
I have another beautiful package of goodies to show you at my next post!!! : ) Have a wonderful Saturday!

I can't wait to use my Doodle Pack as well. Like you, I have a million other things going on (like starting my softie for the softie swap!) but those beautiful papers keep calling my name!

Mary!! I can't believe we have found each other through blogland! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and letting me know you are out here...this is such a wonderful surprise! I love your blog, I'm so happy it is here to showcase your extraordinary talent. With love, Meg

Oh Mary, I'm so glad you're enjoying your Doodle Pack! Please post pictures of whatever you decide to do with all that good stuff! You are so talented, I can't wait to see what you create, especially with that yummy flocked tulle! I'm doing another Doodle-pack some time in May with a pink color theme.

Hey Mary! Yeah I wanna see what you do with it all (pressure is on, isn't it?)
I think most people's dining rooms end up coming down to a crafty level at some point. My husband putts golf balls in ours!

Gypsy Purple said...
