{little lamp in my kitchen window}

I haven't wrote on this site for awhile. After my surgery in January, it has taken me a long time to get back to myself.. My body still feels weak .

When I created this site I had plans to use it to show my work on it. I am getting to that point where I am building my energy back up. And I am creating things again.

Romeo and Juliet song...

This is a new song by Taylor Swift called Romeo and Juliet.
So very beautiful..Reminds me of my John. We first met when I was 15 years old and he was 17..He is the only man that I remember meeting where I remember every moment of that meeting. The clothes he had on, the way his hair looked. His smile..

He was so very beautiful. So extraordinary. No love is ever perfect we went through so many trials. Most of them were from his family and demons that he fought. But I am so very happy that he was a part of my life. He gave me something no one ever gave me before, true love.

Hope you get a chance to listen to the song.

{Clematis on fence}

I have photos for sale on my Etsy Shop...
Gigi and Veronica will be along soon. I have had a hard time trying to get everything done that I want to do.

One reason is that I feel so tired. I have been fighting fatigue. But the things I have accomplished I feel good about. I have the whole front room cleaned up. All the corners. It makes me feel good having a clean house.

Sending you all love, Nita

Faerie Sewing kiTs...

I have 3 Faerie Sewing kiTs...Waiting to be purchased for your sewing needs.

In the first one I put old time looking paper in the bottom. I thought it fit the look of the Antique tin. The tin is from Holland. It is very old...The 2nd tin is made in Holland too. I believe around the Same age.. I wonder what was stored in these? Maybe cookies or chocolate? They are both very beautiful..
The Faerie KiTs include:
1. Scissors
2. Seam Ripper
3. Threader for Needle
4. 24 Spools of Thread
5. Hand Made Pin Cushion
6. 2 Tape Measures
7. Safety Pins
8. Straight Pins
9. Buttons
10. Thimble ( please put this up after use, faeries like to take this and bath in them...)

This is the front of the first tin..
The colors are so vibrant on this tin.

This is the whole tin and it measures 8 inches wide and is 2 1/2 inches tall.

This is the paper I have in the bottom of the 2nd tin. It reminded me of old fashioned wallpaper..

Each tin has a handmade heart pin cushion...

This is the front of the 2nd tin. It looks like a mosaic, doesn't it?

This is the whole tin. It measures 8 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches tall like the first one.

This paper is so amazing looking in person.. I put it in the bottom of the 3rd tin because of the roses.

When I was little I use to make sewing tins for my dolls. Little miniature ones. Taking all sorts of things and using them as containers to hold needles and thread my Mother had given me after she had cleaned out her sewing boxes.

My favorite thing was making the pin cushions..

I put safety pins, straight pins, buttons, and a thimble in little bags for these tins..

This is the 3rd tin. A big yellow Peace Rose on the front. We need more peace don't we? It measure 8 inches wide and 2 1/4 inches tall.
When I look at this tin it calms me ..
I hope it will do the same for you.
I have so many more things I am working on and plan on posting more stuff in a few days....
The price of the tins are 25.00 each I am going to the post office today to figure out shipping.
I will post that as soon as I figure it out. I am so new at this I hope everyone will Patience with me.
I wil be posting these on my Etsy Shop in a few days..

I was going to get my new stuff posted on Etsy today but ended up doing a bunch of other stuff. I will get it on by tomorrow evening.

I did have a good day today. I watched Phantom of the Opera with a good friend this evening. It was awesome. The visuals in that movie are spectacular. I loved it!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
