this is a mixed media postcard that i've mailed off to one of the angels that bless my life.

i hope that it brings a smile to her beautiful face.

these two atc's are a couple of my newest acquisitions.

aren't they wonderful~!?  the sensitive knight card is digitally made  and the fancy lady is a traditional cut and paste.  they are both made by Terri Daugherty of Pixels and Paste.

this lovely Vintage Butterfly card came from the Sparkly Fairy in the U.K.
i love it's old fashioned monotone sweetness.

this adorable spring robin card came from Joy Northrop.
i've traded with her before and LOVE her work.
i have yet to see any spring robins in the yard so until i spot one her tiny card is perched prominently where i can see it and dream about warmer days.

hmmmmmmm . . .  confetti, fancy plates and  "cake" . . .
what could it all mean?

for the last couple of days i've been working on some birthday "cake": a short stack of scrappy 3.5 inch (finished) hour glass blocks.
i can't say too much or i may give away a surprise . . .
but there will definitely be a party happening~!


  1. Oh yummy. What pretty, pretty blocks. But be still my heart your mixed media piece is matchless. I really enjoy the sensitive knight, too. Gosh, I love them all!!! What a beautiful post.

  2. Perfect hour glass blocks ... hmmm ... I'm intrigued!

  3. Love your new mixed media postcard and thank you for showing my ATC x

  4. The cards are so much fun to see. I especially like the knight and the adorned Victorian lady. Looking forward to seeing the party quilt.

  5. What fantastic cards! I love the heart and armor one especially!! The one with the bird too- yes, reminds me of spring.

    So many hour glass blocks!! And perfectly pieced!!

  6. Hi, sweet Libby Q!
    LOVE the top one and the birdie!

  7. Lovely ATCs' Libby - and a party, intriguing! Will wait to hear what happens. Have a good weekend. x

  8. your post card is wonderful, I'm sure she'll love it. The ATC are too fantastic. I love the bird especially.
    lovely blocks.

  9. You're collecting an esoteric mix of ATC's, all beautiful and mysterious.

    That's the most tempting layer cake I ever did see! What perfectly delicious little blocks.

  10. It did bring a smile to my face! I felt unworthy but honored to receive a work of love from you.
