Can't believe how hot it has been.  I water my flowers on the deck in the early morning before the hot sun hits them, then stay in until evening.  I have been very busy in my studio, getting lots done and trying some new things.  Been thinking of starting an Etsy shop. 

  I am sharing a couple of the pages in the book I am making.  I just love fabric, it's so much fun to work with and vintage photos just seem to fit perfectly.

The pages have not been embellished yet.  I am working on the face pages, they will have some paper on them and pockets to stuff things in.  Have a great Friday.

                Hugs, Jackie

Jackie, these are absoloutely glorious! I started some pages last year but other things got in the you've given me the motivation to get them out and start again because there is something so satisfying about working with old fabrics and lace.
I definitely think you should dosomething about an Etsy shop!

Jackie, you should doo that-make an Etsy----just look at your wonderful collages here, I love them- and the red so much, with all the beautiful stitches you have made -so beautiful.

Hi Jackie ..These pages are so beautifully collaged. Love all your laces and the red fabric coming through. The images are just lovely.
Look forward to see the end result.
