Yay!!! My sweet Mama is coming to visit today!! She will be arriving tonight, so I will be spending the day cleaning my messy house. My craftroom (which looks like a tonado hit a scrapbook store) is also the guestroom, so I'm going to be a busy, busy girl today. I'm so exited that she is coming- I miss her so much. She lives in California and I'm in Texas, so we don't get to see each other very often. She and I love all the same things, so we have so much fun together. We love hunting for antiques (especially together!!) and creating art and we love all things pretty and shabby chic and vintage!! The piece above is a collage I made and the little girl is my sweet mama when she was about 3 years old. Isn't she the cutest thing ever? Well, I'd better stop blabbing and start cleaning!

Hi Michelle,
I'm a friend of Terra-Cottage. Saw your comment there and followed your link. I'm just down the road from you. I love the piece with your mom - very playful and bright! If you like "flea market" shopping, I blogged heavily on Warrenton/Round Top which is a 300 sq mile antique show, swap meet, flea mkt, garage sale. It just ended but will come up again in Sept/Oct and I'm sure I will blog it again. Check it out - stashstudios.com and click on the ANTIQUES link.
Have a great visit with your mom!

Oh, I really love the soft color palette you have picked for this. It's Dreamy! Corny, right? It was so nice to "met" you yesterday also! I would love to link your blog to mine. I moved to Texas 6 years ago from South Carolina and I still miss my Mom with an ache that knocks be back every now and again. I am so glad you get to spend some time and do fun things with yours this weekend. Love, Jamie

Hello Michelle! How sweet of you to visit my blog -- thank you! Your artwork is just beautiful. When I visit my sister in Texas, one of the things we love to do is go flea marketing.

Enjoy your time with your Mom. xo

What a pretty collage and such a cutie picture of your mom. I'm sure she'll love the collage. Enjoy the weekend with her.
Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind words. My 2 guys are 3(almost 4) and 21 months. I've got my hands full right now!
I have a flickr account with some of my pictures on it, but I don't search it nearly as much. I tend to spend more time reading blogs!
It's nice to "meet" you. It's one of the best things about blogging. Visit you later!
