~~I Have Bad News and I Have Good News~~

First the bad news:  Am I the only one having problems leaving comments at others' blogs?  For the past month or so, each time I try and leave a comment at my fellow bloggers site,  Blogger keeps telling me to "sign in".  So I do.  Then I get a strange message saying something about cookies being truncated (?) and I am unable to leave the message. So I try it again, and Blogger tells me to "sign in". So I do. Over and over.  Grrrr, frustrating to say the least.  Has anyone experienced this?  Any advice on other blogs I might try and ditch this darn Blogger?

Now the good news!  Creating Vintage Charm  magazine recently published a tutorial of mine in their recent issue, and it came in the mail 2 days ago.  It's outstanding to say the least.  Each issue gets better and better.  For anyone considering submitting a piece to this publication, I urge you to give it a try.  Sonia, the editor is pleasant and freindly and so full of compliments.   Thank you Sonia~

Now on to some more good/exciting news.  10 days from now is the annual  Heavenly Scent Herb Farm Summer Faire which I have had the extreme pleasure of participating in for the last few years.  Where nature abounds in the form of plants and flowers, artistic creations, culinary delights to tease the taste buds, and eye candy galore.  I invite you to attend, Saturday August 27  from 10-5 and Sunday August 28 from 11-5.  Admission is only $2!  I will have many one of a kind assemblages and collages, gift tags,  vintage lace and fabric creations, Halloween delights, , oodles of altered antique apothecary bottles, and so much more.  Don't forget to stop at my QueenBe booth and say "how-DEE"!  By the way,  please feel free to use the image above!!

Charlotte With Wings!!

I've got such an addiction to Frozen Charlotte dolls!  Time to put them to (more) good use, in the way of pendants and altered apothecary bottles. Wearing tiny brass filigree wings and hats, which I added a warm, authentic looking patina too.   I'm not sure if they are a fairy or an angel,  but I know I cannot get enough of them!  Available in my Etsy shop
