Show off Monday & Rococo Fan Swap

Vintage Rose Designs
Etsy Cottage Style

I am participating in Show off Monday & Rococo Fan Swap ! This is one of the Fans I made. This one won"t make it to my partner! My problem is I am never sure of my work or if this would be my partners style...lol

I really need to get a little lot more confidence in my work. I really did 3 fans and finally sent the last one I made.

So, I guess why I am posting about this, is get feed back as to how I get over the fear of giving my own work (and selling)! Any hints or suggestions? Give it to me!! Do tell!


This the first fan I made out of full fabric with cardboard down the middle to add

some stiffness to it.

Here is the actual fan I sent off to my swap partner! ( I hope Terri doesn't see this yet...lol)

The background on the fan is from Vintage fabric, I scanned and copied. Then on the back I spray painted over the top of a dollie to give a lace look,


My Favorite Wall!

Well.. I found myself very drawn to this wall. I must admit it is rare for me~ I seem to be more of a plain kinda gal with colors on the wall and yellow isn't my thing...lol

So, the more I looked beyond what I didn't like, I found a true beauty in the whole thing!! I saw a spiritual collection of Crosses on a beautiful wall. I just wish I could be as creative and bold to do something like this in my home!

Well, I do have a small collections of crosses so there's a start .. right? So, I think I will be searching for more... I am inspired~!

Beauty comes in all fields of Art. I am searching and seeking where the beauty with in lies again...



Rustic Moments

Sharing one of my favorite places I like to sit and have peace! Just an old rustic metal bench, I gather tons of pillows and a cool cotton sheet . And there I lie thinking and finding my solitude.

There are small places for everyone of us, a nook here and cranny there. Where do you find your peacce?
Peace and harmony are good for the soul and balance in our daily struggles in life! Remember to find your own nook and have peace today!

May the Lord bless you...and give you peace
Numbers 6:24
