Vintage magazines for sale!

I have listed this week some old magazines from the 50's and 60's on ebay.

Lots of variety from camping, to cars to photography!

And while you sit and read a magazine, how about a drink with some old swizzle sticks?

Some of these are great! I love the twig one and the one like a cane. They are all from bars and lounges.

All available this coming week here

Pressies in the mail

As part of my sketchbook group - we did the 30 projects in 30 days - see below for my posts - and we each gave a little present for finishing. It was random and a surprise so we didn't know who we were getting it from.

This is what I got from Bea in CA.

4 ATC's made by her. I love the figure one with rhinestone brads for folding the arms and legs in.

Close up of stitching on one of the atc's.

And then an envelope stuffed with old ephemera and postcards and photos. Just up my alley!
Very cool to use in art journaling I think.

And then at the bottom of the envelope some neat brass hearts.

Thanks Bea!

Summer is here!

Well, we are getting the heat now! NOT complaining... June here was the worst on record for Rain so any day now with Sun is wonderful.

Lots goin on.. Sarah is officially graduated and it was a great ceremony.

Here she is with her loot coming off the stage at the end. Besides her diploma, she won highest marks award in 5 of her classes, won a gold watch for high marks, Ontario Scholar, medal for over 80% avg, 3 scholarships including the entrance one for her college and one given for future nursing students. Wow. so proud.

Her boyfriend surprised her with a wrist corsage... so pretty!

And her Dad brought her these.

Lots of great gifts including a nice one from her Nana! and I gave her the book I made, some nursing charms and a diary I had made for her since she was 10. I have another gift, but I haven't given it to her yet, so mumm.

She is now officially moved out and most of her stuff is gone and she moves into residence in Sept. :( Hard adjustment for me, but I know she is gonna do great!!

Other things keeping me busy is this tiny garden...

Oh, and laying here -

It's rough I know, but I think I can handle it.

Stay cool!
