A Spring Vacation, Creation and GiveAway

A long awaited spring vacation is coming up - yeahh

Tomorrow morning I´m heading here

Doesn´t it look awesome.
We were here last year too.
In a little read wood cottage in the middle of the
swedish forrest overlooking this beautiful lake.
it´s all about relaxing, kayaking, fishing, antiqueing
and with no internet connection - wanna come...

it´s suppose to be rain, but I´m gonna be prepared - with rain boots and coat
and lots of books and needlework.
Bringing stuff for some new projects

I´m sure it´ll be awesome.

I´ve been working on some spring creations
in the studio this last weeks 

here´s a little close up.
These are more of the 'snippet' project I´ve been talking about

including some embroidery

pretty cones and garlands


which lead me to the giveaway - yeahh

I though it was a about time
to offer a giveaway again
for my wonderful followers
while we wait for spring to arrive over here

one of my new 'snippet' garlands.
There´s 5 triangles on this - all different
created from my flea markets finds.
All reuse. The base is vintage table cloth
with vintage lace pieces and
sweet embroidered handkerchiefs

here´s a close up, so you can see more details
all on a twine, ready to hang


if you´re a follower
 and would like to get a chance to
win this spring garland
all you have to do
is leave a comment on this post
and I´ll draw a winner on

April 28th

at that time I´ll be back
reloaded and re-energized from a hopely relaxing vacation in Sweden.

Wishing you all
a beautful day
and a wonderful weekend.
Thank you so much for popping in today :-)

Tina ♥♥♥

Your garland is so beautiful and your cones also. Who wouldn't love to own a piece of your beautiful artwork.
