Tea Time,Craft Time.....Any Time.

The only space I have left in My retirement cottage is some wall space,so whatever I make for myself I try to keep in mind--tiny or for the walls.I do like having something over the doors.This bird,cage,grape vine swag when finished will look good over a door.I do love swags and enjoy making them. I was thinking... maybe some cloth and/or ribbon off white  flowers.What would you add to this? I would love some ideas. 

I'm still trading tags,they're small and fun to collect from around the US or even the world.This one is from Karla Jackson @ Sketchbooks ATC Mail Art.

That's the fun I have when I'm not ....

babysitting these tiny loves of My life.

I do also make quite time for reflection  and fun of Tea ,Coffee and going out with hubby.

This morning I picked Chocolate Hazelnut from Stash.

My all time favorite magazine-Romantic Country.It seems all My other faves have changed over the last years.This beautiful magazine still pleases Me.

Thanks for joining Me again in My library for Tea Time and Craft Time,Love Denise

I adore your door swag!
Those spaces should never be empty!
I keep my older mags I love to reflect back on as they are still fun to dream through and get inspiration.

Smiles, Cyndi

Gracias por venir a visitarme a Argentina, preciosas tacitas de té y los amores de tu vida más bellos aún.

Besos grandes

Thanks friend.
I speak English nor write but even helped me with the translator. It's hard to languages ​​when you can not handle. I send you a big kiss from Argentina.
Hugs, do not worry about anything.

Chocolate hazelnut tea sounds wonderful and I enjoy Romantic Country magazine too. Especially this month with fellow Canadian Carolyn's photo on the cover and more inside.

I would add baby's breath to your swag.

What a cute blog...I "think" I found you from 'simply shelley'...
(I say "think" because i hop through blogland so much, I often get lost for hours, LOL!)

That Romantic Country Magazine is just the sort I love! Your door swag will look beautiful when it's all finished. Such sweet photos for us to look at today, especially if the little ones. Such blessings. Take care.

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.
