Etsy Love and a Mini Love Banner....

This post was actually posted on Friday morning about 5:00 a.m. Note: So far in my area we have only had rain. It didn't ice over this morning because it has been raining so hard. We do have a prediction of a small amount of snow later. Update: At about 10:00 a.m. it has started snowing. It is coming down fairly hard and is starting to cover everything.
I have to share with you some more wonderful blogs and Etsy shops. This beautiful, glittered paper mache bunny is from Get Your Martha On. She MAKES these beauties with chocolate molds and even put a tutorial on her blog. It is absolutely adorable and I just love it!

Next is this adorable vintage looking hanging card. This is from Carla at Cosmogirl's Emporium. It is cute, CUTE. She has just re-opened her Etsy shop and has adorable cuties in it. Go take a look. Also, for her grand opening she gave away a mini Love garland kit to each person that commented that day.

I made mine and hung it on the mantle. It is so ADORABLE! Thank you so much for that adorable give-away Carla!

Cute Stuff! I love seeing new blogs and I spend way too much time on etsy!

Enjoy your winter weather! They have changed our forecast (as usual) to rain only! Yuck!

Cute decorations for Valentine time.

We got the ice, sleet - to early to see if we got anything else after we went to bed last night. The lights went off for a short times during the woke up with flashing clocks on several items.

Stay warm.

Darlene girl !!
Your blog is looking so beautiful and I love these vintage crafts .. so pretty .. I wish I was craftier but if I tried things like that .. well, it would be scary for the public to see what I end up with ? haha .. I know you aren't used to winter weather so I hope it doesn't cause any problems .. but it is fun to have a bit of snow when you normally don't right ? : )
I have to come back much more often and I am waiting to see how you decorate for Valentine's !!

Very cute. Glad you've only gotten rain - we're expecting snow & ice starting this afternoon. I'd better run to the store to grab my bread, milk & dog food.;)

Morning Darlene, I am glad you are not yet snowed in. We are expecting quite a bit of snow tonight. We'll see.

The shops you shared do look awesome. I will have to check them out. Right now I must get dressed to go grocery shopping with my sister who lives behind me. We need to prepare for getting snowed in...we never know! I have company coming, I hope they can get up our driveway.

Have a wonderful happy day.
Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

You did a great job making your Valentine decoration. I will visit the blogs you mentioned too. We're expecting a "wintry mix" here today, but not much chance of snow accumulations. Stay warm!

I was just listening to one of our local weather guys who journeyed to OKC to broadcast about the bad weather. Our local power and light folks sent several crews down yesterday to assist with possible power issues. Anyway, I thought our weather guy mentioned your town's I'm thrilled to read that all is well with you!

OMG I love the sites you shared with us. I will certainly check them out!

Stay warm and snug...we didn't get any accumulation. Whew!
L, Dana

HI Darlene. I love that vintage card...that is right up my alley. I haven't been able to make as much this year but oh how I dream. I have never been to the emporium blog so I'm heading over there! Have a blessed day.
We are watching the weather channel! Your area seems to be pretty hard hit.

Love all your cute stuff, Darlene!

Please stay warm. This weather has been so weird. Hope you don't get ice!

Hi darlene
The mini love garland is lovely and the paper mache bunny is adorable. There's so much talent and such wonderful ideas out there in blogland.
Is it still snowing over there? It's freezing here but thankfully no more snow for now.
Have a great weekend.

Stacey said...

Hey, I missed this post did that happen?

I love the bunny! How sweet.

jeanne said...

Darlene, I came back to tell our snow has started too. We are already white. Cheri' just had a running fit eating and shoving her head into the snow. She did everything but pee. LOL. Tomorrow I will post about her for pink Sat. I am in LOVE with this darling little poodle. So is Bill. Yes, we ARE poodle people.

Enjoy the snow, we are. I know Lexi will too.
Hugs, Jeanne

Tardevil said...

How cute is that little snowman on your background? I like the little bingo card you made, and the bunny. Thanks for letting us know. And thanks for getting back to me on the salt dough ornaments. They did turn out well! Have a great weekend.
