It is Thoughtful Thursday and so today I am supposed to reflect on something....there are so many things at this time of the year that brings thought back to me. Putting ornaments on the tree (from when I was a child), signing songs with my kids (that I used to sing) and even cooking and preparing our meals. But for me, my thought turn to my Grandmother. Many of you see the wonderful creations that I make from her Stash, but not many of you know her story! I can't tell you much (she was a private person), but what I can tell you is that I loved my Grandmother very much! She brought light and life into a room with her smile and laugh (she always laughed)! She was one of the most giving and loving people I have ever had the privilege to know. Maybe it is because of her Stash all around my house, but I still feel her looking over my shoulder! For those of you who have your own angles looking down at you, you'll understand!!

The artist says it best; "I love warm traditional things, which explains my attraction to old-fashioned art and craft techniques and vintage item." But, for me, it was this 'little poodle' that caught my eye!! Just too cute - and there is a story behind them..... go see! And remember, always support handmade artist when you can!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought;
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
