New Items to Share & a Girls Day Out!

Thought I would share a few of the things we've been working on lately.... some we will add to our online boutique and some I will be taking to Laurie Anna's Vintage Home during the next Canton Show!

I love using these beaded collars around the flaps of my purses when I find them.... they work perfect for that, and add such a great vintage touch!!!

I bought burlap rolls at Laurie's shop last month, just the regular color burlap and the white.... these small strips worked perfect to go down the middle of this bag, I just love the look of it! Oh and I almost forgot I also bought the buttons that are on this purse at Laurie Anna's Vintage Home too, it all gives this purse such a fun look!

On a total different note, I took the day off yesterday to spend with these 2 little monkeys, and my dear friend Margaret.... we took our little granddaughters to the zoo, I've been wanting to take Amberly, she's never been and I wanted to take her before it got to hot..... well I think I waited to late, boy was it HOT! It was very humid yesterday, but it's only going to get hotter so I was glad that we went a head and took them. We had a lot of fun!

No it's not real, it kinda looks like it is though!

This is Margaret's granddaughter on the left and mine on the right~~~ they had so much fun!
Amberly looks really enthused over her shoe! It doesn't take much to keep a baby occupied!
Now looks like she's trying to put it in her mouth! What won't they put in there!!! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi Daphne,
You are slways so busy and it always lloks like fun!
Your work is always a plesure to see, how clever to use the beaded collars for the purse flap!! I see them at sales and never have any great ideas for their use!
My little dog Twiggy is an Italian Greyhound, I have four, he is very small compared to the others:-) Thanks for stopping by:-)

Beautiful bags, Daphne! I love the one in your blog header, too. Good for you for taking off to spend some time with your granddaughter! I'm looking forward to taking mine to a small zoo we have here in a local park. How did your granddaughter react to that monkey statue? Mine will see something that is strange to her and stands at a distance and checks it out, but if I try to get her closer she is visibly distressed so I back us off. I often wonder myself what won't they put in their mouths!

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Hi Kathy, so glad you stopped by, and thanks for your sweet comments about my bags! The girls didn't seem to be scared of the monkey statue, they had a really good time, I try to pick Amberly up at least once a week and spend the day with her... we have a lot of fun.
hugs~~~ Daphne

Love the new purses and of course, those grandbabies are adorable. Fortunately, it's been fairly pleasant in Ok. I can't stand that humidity.

Is that the Fort Worth zoo? Looks familiar.

Hello Daphne,
Ooooo, another delicious confection created by your talented genius. Just beautiful! Sounds like you are one busy lady ... I'm exhausted just reading about your adventurous filled days, past and present. ~ Love the lily pads ... they are so fairytale like ... it has been a long time since I have had the pleasure of viewing their waxy leaves and unique beauty. Thank you for posting this image!

Wishing you a blessed and blissful week ahead. I do hope your evenings are softened by cool, gentle breezes for peaceful nights of slumber.

Hi Daphne, Your new items are just lovely! Grandbabies are the best, and Amberly looks precious. Our little 18 mos. old granddaughter also loves shoes and calls them shoe-shoes. So sweet~
Have a great weekend!
