Rick Rack Vintage...


Hello, Sweet Friends!

Rick rack, no matter where I see it~
Makes me smile!
It gives these little rounds a creative kick!
I found these in a nearby antique shop...
The stitch work the woman put into each
one is truly amazing...


They're not Cinderella's mice...
They're Michelle's feathered pals!
Oh how fun to have little feathers flying all about
the studio... little chirps of delight!


Oooops!
We have cats...


So I draw them being playful~
Then list them in my Etsy store for you to enjoy!


Purple Coneflower grows very well in our gardens.
(even through the weeds at this point!)
Yellow Finch and Chickadees love to
perch, munch and rest...

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

Michelle,
These are some of the sweetest ones so far, I love them all, but I am a big rick rack fan. Everytime I go to a estate sale and find vintage rick rack I buy it. I hope you and your family have a beautiful weekend.
Hugs,
