Tea on Tuesday

Today is my very first post for
Tea on Tuesday
is the organizer of Tea on Tuesday so
make sure you stop by and
visit her.

It's a gloomy, overcast Tuesday in
so I thought it called for a hearty
English Breakfast Tea

It's just what I need to finish
projects in my studio.
I have a gorgeous
bracelet to finish for my lovely
A gift for her birthday.
I'd show you, but it's a surprise.
I'll post after tomorrow.

So for now, enjoy your cup of tea and
I will see you next Tuesday for Tea.

Mother's Day

I had a beautiful Mother's Day.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous,
so we decided to go to one of my favorite cities in Colorado,
Pearl Street is unlike any other street so
I thought I would invite you to come along.

Walking out of the parking garage, we were
greeted by this gentleman on the back of
someone's shop.

Walking down Pearl Street there were flowers everywhere!

I did discover though, that one of my favorite stores
is closing its doors, Paper Doll. This little lady has been
outside their door for many years.

I sure hope someone buys her
and a few of her friends.

More flowers.

I found a couple of new favorite places.

This shop was an absolute visual delight:

And still more flowers:

A beautiful shop filled with chandeliers from Europe:

Finally, no post about Boulder would be complete without
 a few photos of the entertainment:

Everywhere I looked, I couldn't help but smile.

Thanks for coming along with me.

Etsy shop

I have finally started my
Etsy shop.

The 1949 of course is the
year I was born.
As I've said before, I love
the 20s, 30s and 40s. 
My goal is to keep the tradition
of hand sewing and vintage
things alive.
I absolutely adore

This is my first piece that I have
listed and there will be lots
more to come.
I just had to share my
success at getting
an item listed.
It seems the older I
get the broader the learning
curve becomes.
