What a sweet surprise!

We all do it. You're reading someone's blog and they show a fabulous picture from someone else's blog and you click on that link and before you know it, it's 27 degrees of seperation from where you started, but you've stumbled on some really amazing bloggers. That happened to me (for the 100th time) last week. I was on a blog and that blogger was showing things that Elizabeth, at Creative Breathing, had made. They were so cute, so I went to Elizabeth's blog and from there to her Flickr site. What a treat to see the art that Elizabeth creates. Small pieces, for the most part, intricately detailed and flawlessly executed. I've sent her two messages begging her to sell her things somewhere. I guess all the begging sent her to my blog (to see if I was some kind of crazed lunatic) and my Flickr site where she found the following.

A while ago I posted a picture of a vintage postcard I purchased on one of my excursions with my firend, Mimi. This is the postcard.

The postcard is cute enough but now look and see the paper piecing that Elizabeth did. Isn't it lovely? Take some time to skip over and check out Elizabeth's blog and the pictures on her Flickr site. It will be like a little breath of fresh air today. And you might find yourself a few degrees from here.

Enjoy your Friday!

Joyce, I know exactly what you mean! I have done it many a fact, that's how I fell in love with vintage things! Elizabeth's paper pieced picture is gorgeous and I went to her blog and her Flickr site...everything is wonderful. I agree with you, she should be selling!

I've been known to wander far and wide doing the exact same thing, often with delightful results.

To answer your question on changing the fireplace from wood burning to gas, yes, my husband did it himself. Our fireplace is one of the insert type it had a place where you could drill it out for the gas pipe to be threaded through. He then bought and installed the gas logs, ran the gas line to a fuel tank outside. We also thoroughly cleaned the fire box and bricks, repainting them with a high heat bbq paint to freshen it up and it looks brand new. If you have any specific questions, email me and maybe I can answer them more fully that way.

Have a nice week!
