Mason’s Ironstone China Vista England Pitcher

Brown Transferware Pitcher

Here is one of my latest vintage listings in my Etsy store.  It is a gorgeous, brown transferware pitcher from the 1940’s.  I love the country, english scene.  Doesn’t it look so peaceful?  Just look at that castle! 🙂  It is made by Mason’s Ironstone China.  Click HERE to be directed to my Etsy store for more details and information.

Retro Stacking Coffee Mugs

One of my latest finds have been these vintage stacking coffee mugs.  These were in every kitchen when I was a kid.  They are ceramic.  Each set’s glazing is so unique.  In fact, no two are glazed exactly the same.  They are one of a kind art. 🙂  I don’t know which pattern is my favorite.  I’d appreciate it if someone could share the history of when and how these were made.  I’d love to know the process.  The bottoms are all marked “Japan”.  They are all listed in my Etsy store if you’d like them for your collection. 🙂

Catch this Gingerbread Man…

While I am off cruising, I thought I would share this cute card from the A Muse Studio designers.  How cute and easy is this to make? 

Ingredients: Cherry cardstock for the card base.  Sugar cardstock cut with the Pinking Border Die using the Big Shot.  Silver Shimmer Couture Cardstock for the cookie sheet and the ginerbread man from the Candy Cane Wishes set was embossed with white embossing powder on Coco Cardstock.  Then his lovely little buttons were glittered with Cranberry Glitter.  Finish it off with a tied bow made from the Cherry and White Baker’s Twine.

Dragonfly Pendant Beaded Necklace

My mom and I spent last night together making jewelry.  I had so much fun.  I haven’t had time to create in such a long time.   It has been months!  I wondered if I would remember how. 🙂  But, have no fear!  I made this and several other items that I have listed in my Etsy Store.   Click over and see what you might like 🙂

Owl Valentine’s Day Card

Here is a cute card if you need some inspiration for some last minute valentines.  I used the stamp set Little Darlins from The Angel Company and embossed cardstock from DCWV’s Sweets Stack.  I added glitter to the owls’ bellies and the hearts.  Simple, cute and so easy to make. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Reindeer Christmas Card

My theme this Christmas season, as always, has been “simple and easy” and here is another one…

I designed this Christmas card for my grandmother’s cards this year.  Every year I make cards for her to mail to family and friends.  She has recently moved to Kentucky and this is my first year of not going to her house for the holiday.  She’s only been moved a couple of weeks, but I miss her so much. 

I stamped the reindeer and “Merry Christmas” using Burnt Umber on vanilla cardstock.  Then before I mounted it to the brown cardstock I distressed the edges, dragged them in Moulin Rouge and curled up 2 opposite corners.  I used red Stickles to make his nose shine.

I used the following products from The Angel Company

Stamp Sets:  Reindeer Food, Vintage Santa

Cardstock:  Vanilla, Scarlet and Monochromatic Browns

Ink:  Burnt Umber and Moulin Rouge Palette Ink

Accessories:  Red Stickles and Pop Dots
