She's here!! My lovely mama is here and we are having so much fun!! That's her above in the art studio/guest room!
We spent the weekend visiting antique malls and discount stores! The photo above is us in front of one of our favorite booths at the antique mall.
This gorgeous banner was made by my mama and she gave it to me for a gift! If I were her, I don't know if I could've given it away! Isn't it the sweetest, prettiest banner?! She even added my little guys to it! On top of the "F" is my baby boy and on the "Y" in the little flower is my big boy! I just adore it!! She also gave me a big box full of collage supplies- glitters and vintage photos and ephemera! I'm such a lucky girl! At the antique mall she found some wonderful vintage ribbons and vintage hats covered in flowers and lots of other goodies. We spent the evening ripping the flowers from the hats (which seemed kind of awful, but we couldn't help it!) to use in our collage art! We are just having the best time ever! You should go check out my flickr account- lots of new pretty photos because my mom brought her camera with her! Yay!

Thanks for coming by my blog the other day and for the lovely comments.

What a great time, antiqueing with your very talented mum, who seems to have a good eye for finding some lovely things. You seem to be a lot luckier than me I can't seem to find vintage flowers anywhere.

best wishes Ginny
