Winter White Wednesday

We are in the midst of yet another major snowstorm here in New England and EVERYTHING i see is whiter than white outside my window. So my mind and creative inclinations are to think of "spring!"
This is a mixed media project i finished recently.......

....a vintage book page ....
...a little maiden talking to a sweet bird...

..beckoning him to come live with her.
And here's the closeup of where my gluegun stick got jammed and i pressed it so hard that hot glue spurted out and onto the page!!

Oh well..onto the next project....some "nesting" tags.

And some petite burlap pouches....

...and lastly, sharing some finds from my trip to Michael's... 
I thought i'd buy some supplies but couldn't resist these....

...j'adore those rhinestone-studded crowns!!

Not a whole lot of white inspiration here but it's the best i can do at the moment! 
I'm heading over to 
Kathleen's Faded Charm Cottage for  some diversion and inspiration!!

Happy White Wednesday mes amies!

Avec Amour,
P.S. Happy Ground Hog's Day and Happy Birthday to my own little ground hog....my "baby!"


  1. What a sweet little picture! Love the flowers in your header. Are they from soda cans?


  2. ...oh Michelle,
    just what is up with this blast o' winter??
    ~ I'm with you, come on spring...hopefully very soon, when you put out birdseed it won't disappear into the feeder ~ but I bet for now, the birdies would eat it out of your hand ~ LOL!!

    warm squeezes dear one!
    xo, Rosemary

  3. Michelle ~
    Those are beautiful things
    that you created !!
    Isn't it so much fun to get to
    create ! I just love it ~


  4. Hi Michelle,
    Imagine my happy heart when I saw your crown bottles. My Alli girl gave me those for Christmas....boy does that kid know me!!!! I love them and they are on my fireplace mantel.
    Hang on with the snow....we aren't even dug out yet....just posted pictures on my blog.
    STAY WARM.....Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)

  5. Michelle- dear it is so lovely -your collage-even with the glue --and your tag and pouches are truly springlike and sweet,too-
    The crown bottles-- WOW-love them....

  6. Michelle, your mixed media project, tags and pouches look like they came right off the pages of beloved Jeanne D'Arc Living mag! What an artist you are, and the gluegun mishap just gives your result some character. Beautiful! We need to think spring with all this heavy white stuff. Oh, will it ever melt??? Sigh.
    We'll definitely plan an excursion to Essex to cheer us up.
    (Happy Bday to your son!)

  7. Hi Michelle,
    I bought a couple of those crown jars at Michaels last time too. Can't not buy them at 80% off. I only purchased two because all the others had the seal pushed down into the jar and I didn't know if they would come back out.
    Don't ya just hate it when the glue gun does that? I am sure you will figure out some way to fix it. Love your projects!

  8. Just GORGEOUS!! Thanks for the tips you sent me, and watch for your exclusives!!

  9. Oh, Michelle, everything is so beautiful... I see the problem with Picasa was finally solved.
    XOXO ;O)

  10. Such pretties!! Love the crown bottles!! I feel at pit stop at Michaels coming on!! :-)


  11. What do you mean there's no inspiration here...there's TONS of inspiration!!! I love every bit of your post...especially your little finds at Michaels and your petite burlap bags are beautiful!!

    Keep warm,

  12. Happy White Wednesday and thanks for sharing your lovely projects. Everything is just great. I love the little burlap bags. I haven't been to Michaels since before Christmas. I think I'm missing some fun finds!
    Best to you,
