Oh heck, another week gone by

First, I would like to thank you all for your wonderful comments and well wishes on the birth of our little granddaughter Emily. I was so touched by your  kind words. she really is a little darling and ever such a good and happy little sweetiepie. I got to cuddle her again a couple of days ago when we visited, and tomorrow they are coming for dinner with us so I can sit there snuggled up with Emily and a big stupid grin on my face. Mustn't forget to take some photos this time, I totally forgot when we last saw her.

What else apart from baby huggling have I  been up to? Errmmm, well, dog walking every day, preparing listings for Etsy, sending out orders, and only a little bit of crafting. Oh, I did make another collage a couple of weeks ago and I don't think I have shown you that one yet. Similar in style to the one I had made previously. But here, have a look for yourselves -

I also managed the tag for this week's Tag Tuesday challenge. I have to admit, I have oodles of fun with the alphabet challenge.  I love searching through all my images, postcards, magazines etc for the right vintage image. This is what I came up with for H, HATS -

Still have to do this week's inchie, which has me slightly stumped, its Street Sweeper! YIKES!

I am busy busy trying to get things listed in my Etsy shop, gosh, it all takes such a long time, photographing, measuring, packaging, weighing, writing..... still, it is so rewarding when you meet lovely customers and read their wonderful happy comments. I will get round to doing a Vintageland post tonight, promise, to show you some of the stuff going in. Oh heck, another looooong evening, lol, I hope there is something entertaining on the telly to keep me company.

Right, enough chatting, I am off to be a good girl and get back to doing what I am supposed to be doing.

Have a wonderful Sunday tomorrow, my dear friends.

Good morning, dear Lizzie! Your fabric collage is gorgeous. I love all the bits of lace and the pretty papers you've used. The tag is adorable too. That beaded beaded ornament is such a beautiful detail.
Happy Sunday, dear friend!
