Vintage goodies and this weeks art journal page

These vintage pieces came from My side of the family.Since when they're placed together they have a masculine feel , I say this self is My husbands shelf. Aren't I generous?Don't answer please. I know it's the only real spot I have what I consider masculine. I'm guilty.There are truly a few other things in the house . If you would like to serve coffee or tea to a man ,the1920-30s coffee pot should do.The McCoy Indian sign pitcher is from the same time frame I believe.They both have family stories that go with them. My husband baby shoes,o.k., those are really His.

These were both reproductions.The brown tin  is an old lunch pale I got at an antique shop.I knew it was a repo. I do keep Paul in mind when I shop sometimes :)

 Now for our girly play time. This weeks page in My art journal is from Color Of  Summer's prompt : Raspberry and cream with cashews ice cream -YUM,but all I could think of was how much My Mom loved that flavor,so this ones for you Mom.

The only tag I've ever purchased-Fairy Ballerina.

Try to add  FUN to your week and a little enchantment for yourself,it always helps.I promise.

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
