Lori,
you are making me smile with all these beautiful treasures!!! Of course, you just had to show that gorgeous tatted puff again, so I've got a puddle of drool to clean up!*! The other puff is gorgeous, too. I adore that lace heart you made, and so proud to own one of those beauties. And what can I say about that precious bonnet....silk, ruching, flower...gorgeousness!!!
Btw, I love your etsy name...so perfect! ;-)

this post is making me smile because:
1) it's completely lovely
2) your use of a partridge family song title

Oh Lori I have missed coming over here the past week and some. You have been sharing the prettiest things here and I just kept sighing over every picture.

Elly said...

Ohhh... lovely, lovely!!!! Your post absolutely made me smile! But there was more! I went to a springfair today, my kids were so sweet, the pie we ate was yummie and I bought a few pretty items for my home. So that made me really happy and made me smile! Oh and our doggies were so naughty and crazy, that made me smile too! And what about my hubby who's working in our garden, making a new pergola???? That gave me the biggest smile today! Well, I think I'm just a lucky girl!
Hugs Elly

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

What's making me smile today (tonight)...YOU! I'm so enjoying my time here catching up with you.
I've been a bad blogger...so spank me. I'm pitiful.
I've officially been diagnosed with Spring fever...the computer is the last place I want to be. Before too long, it's going to be hot as hell here in Louisiana and I'll be forced to be in the A/C in front of the computer screen. But for now...tonight...I'm enjoying my visit with you! And...I'm smiling!!!

triple chin and all~

Lori,
That tag is perfection! I love it. I'm always printing out those precious babies & trying to make cards from them. I think I go too crazy, yours is darling. Very simple. Of course I love everything you touch. I bought 3 of Beth's bonnets last week. Don't know where that girl finds the treasures she does, but I'm glad she shares them. Lisa

Stacey Steimle said...

thanks for stopping by, love the tag and twine!
