are you singing ... ? ... just a small town girl, living in a lonely
world, she took the midnight train...i'm already off track (so to speak)...
that's one of my favorite open the sun roof on the way to the office
summer songs...and, man! i can clean house to Journey! it's also
our Mom's weekend song, while the kids were at Washington State University.
if you attend a WAZZU alumni wedding, the Mom's and kids throw their arms
around each other and sway and sing it to the top of their lungs.
it's emotion and love at it's best!
i just started this day with the best memories dancing in my head.
back on track...this post is about Susie V.
i have not seen Susie since... before Christmas.
she has the sweetest heart.
she invited me to her trunk show last November.
Susie has traveled all over the world. along the way she collected
beads and stones as souvenirs of her travels.
she says, "these are my journey stones!".
she decided it was time to share her stones by designing a collection
i snapped a few pictures of her... Journey Stones.
(please excuse the quality of the images, i was using my little point and shoot.)
the images above are only a glimpse of her beautiful collection.
this morning, before work, i prepared a surprise for Susie.
i cannot bring myself to cover Maria's French lavender filled pillows,
i just trimmed it with fancy ribbon. i am lucky to have a die cutter so
i can make my own tags. i keep my vintage trimmings in Ikea hat boxes.
the little piece with faux pearls, silver and white glass beads was the
perfect little flourish. i tied the paper linen tag on with natural tiny twine
thank you to everyone for visits and your wonderful comments. i promise that
i will catch up with you in the next couple days. the work days are
long, but i am enjoying all the new that i am learning.
