I started putting this post together and realized I had so many different things to talk about. I wanted to share them with you because I might need to take a blogging break. My time is not my own these days and I have a lot of irons in the fire. So . . . here is my slightly disjointed, tidbitty post.
Tidbit 1. . .
These sweet white porcelain petals are from the wonderful Ulla.
These are actually for a special project that she and I have been cooking up together. We had a blast the other day creating away in her studio. Have I told you just how wonderful Ulla is? She is one of the most talented and generous people I have ever met. She inspires and cheers on the process of creation in other artists. She passes on her knowledge and love for art in a way I have never seen anyone do. I have learned so much from her and I am so very grateful to have her in my life.
Ulla, if you read this I hope it doesn’t embarrass you, but it is the truth. I had so much fun the other day with you. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon of creating!
Tidbit 2 . . .
I have this beautiful standing lamp that I packed away awhile ago, but recently I brought it back out to bring more light into my living room. The lamp comes with a wonderful lampshade which has a separate gauzy cover. The only problem is that I misplaced the cover. I decided to create another one and didn’t want to spend a fortune. I thought sewing material onto the frame of the shade would be the most economical way to go.
I found this unusual material at Joanne’s. It was really different from what I would normally choose. When I got home I took my needle and thread out and sewed it onto the frame. I wasn’t very neat as I sewed, but I do like the overall effect.

My hubby brought this home to me, today. It is a lemon chocolate truffle! Did you know that chocolate sales during this time have increased by 20%? I thought it looked sweet on my pink rose petals.
