  1. So great work here again sweetie, and sooo great to see you back on the blog again too. Was a bit worried, you´ve caught a bad flu like the rest of us here, as there was soo quiert on your blog here lately, but I sure hope not.
    I´ve been really hit very bad myself and ended up with a bad pneumonia too, so have been put out of fun for more than 2 weeks here, but now I´m finally also back on my feet and getting slowly back on track here.
    Thanks sooo very much for both todays and yesterdays wonderful frames here, they´re soooo beautiful as always hun.
    Have a wonderful day and loads of great fun, I hope, and take good care okay.

    1. Hello Darling! There has been no flu on our part, thankfully, a lot of people have been sick in our town, but I’ve managed to stear clear 🙂
      I’m very sorry to hear that you were so ill!!! I certainly hope for a speedy recovery, you need to be up and running for the upcoming trip!!!

      I’m also sorry about abandoning the blog, I have had some internet issues to resolve, but I can assure you I have done loads of fun research that should result in some creative, fun projects in the next few weeks 😀 For starters I will put up several of the seed catalog frames 😉 I think they could also make nice, alternative cards, or some creative journaling. And of course they would be great in a vintage style album, which is what I hope to use them for 😉 Take care, get totally well, and enjoy the days getting brighter and warmer 😀 xoxoxo

    1. YAY!!! You might be exited to hear that this is only the beginning of a veritable series…lol All garden, farm, flowers oriented. I wasn’t sure to include any crops in my reinventions, but now I start thinking that maybe I should! I too have farm pictures of my ancestors, that would definitely look great accompanied with artful melons, tomatos or squash 😀 Please let me know if your interested, and I’ll make one of those next 😀 xoxoxo
