Artful Thursday

Let's see...since we have my Father-in-law staying with us this week from out of town and College Boy is staying here for a week, we have a little bit of a lack of sleeping space around here now so I decided to go with a "sleep" theme today.

I found a cute little image from my stash of vintage patterns, and placed it on a cute background and punched it out.  I got out some of my tulle and chamomile flowers, made a simple sachet, tied it with ribbon, added on the Tim Holtz addage label and made a cute sachet to place on a pillow, bed or tray. 

Here it is on my little tray in the bathroom with other perfume bottles I have.

The two little kids remind me of myself and the Rocket Scientist. I think I'm telling him to "shhhhh!!!"
Sweet Dreams!!

awwww, that's cute!
I'm so afraid to cut into my old papers - but you're inspiring me to make use of them instead of just keeping them stored away. Thanks!

Say "Hello" to Florida for me...I miss it! Alabama has been so C-O-L-D lately :0)
