~Home is Where All Journeys Begin~



Hello Sweet Friends!
"Home is Where All Journeys Begin"
is one of My Favorite sayings.
You Might Recognize This Theme from my Fall Blog Header.
I Really Love the Art of Jessie Wilcox Smith 
and this Particular Sweet Girl is 
One of my Very Favorites of her Work.
I decided to Make her into a Journal.
It was Fun to Make  Envelopes with a Little Treasures inside. I added Mother of Pearl Buttons to the Book Marks.
I Had a a Botanical Artists Journal in Mind when I Created it! 
Hope  You Enjoy  the Journal and 
Maybe Even Find Something that Inspires You!
I am Linking Up with:

Thank You So much Debra!


 Thank you Very Much Courtney!

I Haven't had as Much time these Days to do Posts. 
My Father has been Not feeling Well 
and will Need to Have Surgery after Easter.
I am trying to Help as Much as I Can. 
Its Hard to see your 
Parents getting Older and Frail.
Thank You all My Friends. 
I Know you all Understand.
May You All Have a Wonderful Easter 
with your Dear Families and Friends!
XOXO

~ Simply Sassy~



Hello  Friends!
I Love this Image from Paper Whimsy!
Doesn't She Look Like 
a Little Miss Sassy!
Her Eyes are Quite Beautiful 
and that Cherub Face!
I am Sure she 
Melted her Daddy's Heart 
and had him 
Wrapped Around Her Little Finger!
She was Made with Different 
Printed Papers I Have Collected 
and then glued to a 
chipboard Tag as a Base.
I Embellished her with an 
Old Watch Face and a Vintage Jewelry Find.
Mother of Pearl Buttons of Coarse,
Seam Binding Ribbon,
& Butterflies!
I Think I got Carried away with the Butterflies!
She will Be going to a Dear Friend!
I Hope she Enjoys Her as Much as I Enjoyed Making her!
 I am Linking up With Debra For Vintage Inspiration Friday!
Thank You Very Much Debra!
And this is My First time to Link up with

~Some of my Favorite Things~

 These are a Few of My Favorite Things!
 I have Really Fallen in Love with 
Hand Carved Mother of Pearl Buttons. 

 Last Weekend I went to a 
Local Flea Market and Found 
all of these Lovely Rhinestone Pieces.
I Love to Visit with the Vendors 
to Find out the Back Ground 
of my Purchases. 
These Pieces came from a Woman Who Adored Jewelry!
Well What Woman Doesn't... But this Woman! Wow!
Her Dear Husband Loved Buying it for Her!
  Her Collection was not only Extensive but Beautiful!
She Had Passed some Years ago 
and her Dear Husband Couldn't Let Go of her Things.
He Passed Recently 
and Now the  Family was doing their 
Best with taking Care of the Estate.
It was Nice to Visit with Them 
and it Sounded Like their
Parents Adored Each Other! 
I Just Love That.





The Junkin Gypsies
Took a Trip up to a Little Town  named Corvallis, 
Just to North of Us. 
Lemay wanted  me to see a Little Used Book Store
that she has been Frequenting for Many Years.
This Place was PACKED with Used and Antique Books!
She said" OK! You have an 50 Minutes!"
"What! Thats Not Enough Time! Your Kidding!"
She wasn't...
She Told Me that there is 
Never Enough Time in this Store!
She was Right!
I did Find this Godey's Ladies Book!
Happy Dance!
It is So Amazing to Read and Hold in your hands 
something that was Written and Published  159 years old!
Charming and Sweet is what comes to mind 
when you Peruse through but...
Baby we Have Come a Long Way!!!Lol
