Working on in The Studio

Sneak peek at what I'm working on in the studio today. Just a little something I'm whipping up. ;-)

And I want to share with you the most exquisite letter I received from my blog writing partner from Ireland. It was written on the back of this paper! I think I'm going to use the paper for another one of my birdhouses. The photos do NOT do it justice, trust me. It is absolutely beautiful.

And she was so kind as to send me some souvenirs of her beautiful country, Ireland. Now, we've been to Ireland and I've been wanting to do a post on that most magnificent of countries and will sometime very soon. We had a wonderful time driving through it.


  1. What a lovely gift, and from Ireland, lass...Faith and Begorra, how much better can it be.

  2. Connie how lovely.
    I'm so glad you ahd such a nice letter. I knew you had been to Ireland previously, whcih is why I matched you with Kathleen!

  3. Those papers are so pretty, Connie. Very sweet of your friend to send them to you!


  4. That was so sweet of your friend to send you those wonderful things and those papers are beautiful!


  5. Hi Connie, thank for stopping by. You caught me in between chores getting rested for the next thing on my list. Grandkids week starts Saturday. I am getting organized and cleaned before the chaos begins.

    Love the beautiful rose on the papers. I haven't figured out what the paper is but I love the look.

    I love the beautiful papers and the Ireland momentos are so sweet. I do want to visit Ireland very much. One day...

    Back to work before I lose my energy and take a nap. HA! I love my naps.

    Happy days to you Connie.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  6. Glad everything arrived in one piece Connie and that you enjoyed it!

  7. Oh what a great gift from a blogging friend. And to use the paper for a special project is perfect.


  8. Aren't bloggy pen pals just the best?!?

    Your friend was so thoughtful to send you such pretty papers and gifts. I have never been to Ireland, but it is at the top of my wish list. Hubby and I are both Irish- Americans so we have to go!
    Hope you have a wonderful day sweetie!
    XO, Mary

  10. Oooh, I really love the paisley.

  11. Those papers are just so beautiful! Blogging pals are just the best and most generous people!


  12. I've seen you popping in and commenting on some of my favorite blogs-- so I'm finally dropping by! Love your blog-- oooh- I've got to go check out your esty shop now!

  13. Love the blue rose paper in particular. Looking forward to seeing the birdhouses.

  14. Hi Connie, What a great package that was to receive! Those papers are grogeous!

  15. Lucky girl! Those papers are just beautiful. Nice to have friends in other places. Have a great week, from the other Connie!

  16. In this day of email and texting, a hand-written letter is a rare and beautiful gift. And when it is on SUCH lovely paper, it's even more beautiful.


  17. Oh how blessed you are to have received just lovely treasures.... My mother is an Irish Wanna-be :0)

  18. I keep leaving you a message and it goes to spam! I know all about the Face Book scam that took over myself and my oldest daughters Face Book accounts. There is nothing we can do about it. Facebook does not care. If they did they certainly would not ask me what my e mail password is! I posted a comment on my blog. Ther eis nothing else I can do if I can not leave a personal message for people that contact me regarding that. It just gives these jerks who scam/spam more power because I am sure they are enjoying reading the comments!


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
