On the road to recovery and SHOPPING again!


Hello sweet friends! Im BACK! Finally Im getting a chance to sit down and "breathe again". It’s been a week since my surgery and Im feeling better each and everyday! I cant THANK YOU ALL enough your sweet kind words of encouragment and support!!!! It means the WORLD!!!!! I finally have my children home. Thank heavens!(they’ve been staying with my In-laws while I recover) I’ve missed them sooo much!!!! Yesterday was my FIRST day out (I was starting to go stir crazzy!!!) and I went shopping to one of my favorite places. HOBBY LOBBY!!!!! Lookie at the CUTE shabby christmas tree’s I purchased. Aren’t they yummy???    


These are some beautiful sparkley aqua oraments that I just HAD TO HAVE!!!!


The week before my surgery I made some fun purchases. One was at a local flea market. I found these adorable vintage Christmas glasses that I will use in my kitchen. Aren’t the fun???


These FABULOUS purchases came from one of MY FAVORITE websites Glitter & Grunge. Oh my!!!! Soooo many incredible and talented artist!!!!

This fun ONE OF A KIND pumpkin girl is made by the SUPER talented Debra Schoch of Hop Hop Jingle Boo. I just LOVE her acorn wand!


This next piece I drooled over is made by magnificent Catherine Chavez of Pink Rose Pastries. Her pastel roses filled cakes, cookies, petit fours oooozzz SWEET & SHABBY!!!! I own a few pieces of hers, and added this one to the collection. It’s a hanging ornament. I would love to collect ALL colors. πŸ™‚


Finally….my last beautiful purchase is a white shabby gesso frame. I purchased it on Ebay, and I frame all of children portraits using these GORGEOUS old & chippy frames.


This is the SWEET picture of Vivian that will be displayed in the frame.


This is a section of my wall located in my Master Bedroom where my current portraits of Grant displayed, and I will soon be adding his baby sister. πŸ™‚


Thank you AGAIN for all your sweet words of support!!!! It feels good to start creating again. Im getting ready for Silver Bella, and making some more fun & whimsical creations to share with you all. πŸ˜‰

I hope you are totally recovered soon. You’ve inspired me to make the one hour drive to Hobby Lobby to get the pink trees!

I’m so happy your feeling better!
Look at all your goods…
Love them all.

Oh, and I also wanted to say, I think the portrait of you and your baby in that last pic is the most beautiful mother/child photo I’ve ever seen in my life!! I wish I had had one taken like this, it’s just so beautiful!!!

Hi Jenn, so happy to hear you are back home with your babies! We adore Gesso frames too, aren’t they just a perfect way to display baby photos in? Loving the pink trees, just perfect! And the pic of Vivian is more than adorable! Have a lovely day at home Jenn! Jenn and Jacqui x

I’m so glad that you are recovering, and wish you continued good health. Take care of yourself, and let everyone help if they offer (and even if they don’t πŸ˜‰ ) Such cute pictures!

Everything is so lovely, Jenn! And that picture of you holding Grant as a baby….priceless! What a treasure. Your “get well” package will be there before you know it, but I think you might be well before it gets there! hehe πŸ™‚ BIG HUGS!!!!

out shopping? oh yes, a sure sign of feeling better πŸ™‚ i’m so glad!!! i just love your goodies here today esp that gorgeous frame and the wonderful goodness of the hanging ornament. Viv’s picture is SOOOOO sweet, she is such a little doll baby!!! confession: i CANNOT STOP thinking about the “VB” that you told me about…remember me if you sell…i would love to have a “collection” and of course you need three of something to say that you have a true collection πŸ™‚

Jenn, so glad to hear you’re recovering well! xo natalea

Hey Jenn:
So happy to hear you are on the road to recovery! You made some fabulous purchases. I’m going to the flea market this weekend and can’t wait! I haven’t been in several weeks and ham having withdrawal. Vivian’s photo is precious. It will look perfect in the frame.

WOW! BEautiful baby! Love the pink trees… a lot! And OMG! So glad to hear you are on the mend! I hadn’t heard you were broken! LOL! But what ever it was, I’m glad it’s passed! You are so fabulous and have the most perfect home, and your family is gorgeous too, so like I said… glad you’re on the mend πŸ™‚

Vivi is just adorable!!!!! Loving everything here Jenn. The frame… oh my… and the hanging decoration is so beautiful, I thought it was a wand until I realised it was a box! how cute!!!


So glad to hear you are getting better. πŸ™‚
I love those vintage Reindeer glasses. I collect older glasses usually with flowers or fruit & need to find some Christmasy ones. I recently found at the thrift store, some milk glass punch glasses with red & green scenes & silouettes on them & the words, Tom & Jerry! I have no idea who these Tom & Jerrys are, but my youngest loves those cartoons so I had to buy them.
Now why don’t we have Hobby Lobby here? Those are some sweet trees.

Jenn, I have tagged you for 7 weird things! See my blog for details! But you are recovering, so take your time, no rush, okay!
I am so glad you are feeling better and okay, and glad you have the sweet ones back home!
I Love those ornaments, trees, glasses and rose cake ornament, gorgeous!
Take care of yourself! :O)

Hi Jenn πŸ™‚ Thank you SO MUCH for your sweet comments! We sure are glad that Miss Natasha introduced us to you!!! PLEASE DO come and visit anytime, we will bring out Pink Lemonade and fairy cakes! Take care and speak soon, Jenn and Jacqui in Aus xoxo

Hey sweet Jenn…I’m so sorry to hear that you were ill, or that you needed surgery. I must be really out of it because I had no idea. I’m glad to hear that you’re feeling better, though. Missed you and glad you’re back. I love those old frames too. I have a few that I’m goint to do something with soon. Or, so I keep saying. xo
