decorating*

this is the top part of an old hutch where i have some collectibles, most of them are old, probably not worth much but hold sentimental value..dont they all? my collection of the bottle brush forest adorns the top part of the hutch with a little cardinal sitting on a sleigh waiting for santa...i guess i have a thing for birdies, nest and bottle brush trees amongst other things....anyhoo..the tea cup on the outside ends i bought for a swap but liked them too much to give away and the one in the middle i got from a tea swap from a cool gal in sweden who is american and married a swede...
anyhoo...i thought the other day i need to display my atcs somehow and lo and behold an idea was hatched, put them in the tea cups..brilliant i said to myself!!

this one is from a collection of tea atcs that i managed to buy off of ebay from a very talented artist..you all know and love....http://arttealife.blogspot.com/...love all her things..xoxox

the little bird atc in the cup is one of my own designs and the shoe stamped atc is from my 3rd tuesday of the month girlfriend-shara..she does wonderful things with stamps which i am very jealous of..she does not have a blog yet, but is working on it..she just gave me this card last week..love it!! shara is also from ohio...xoxox

this last card i won off of ebay from another one of my talented friends-paul dion. she also does not have a blog but she is a member of art chixs and she has had her work published in somerset
magazine multiple times, she is awesome!! love her stuff also xoxox..(she lives in a log cabin)
how cool is that and she is also from ohio...
love you!
