Bloomin' Tuesday; Happy Soulbrush ATCs and Maya*Made Gathering Gift Bag

Happy Blooming Tuesday. I found these beautiful blooming tulips last Saturday during our weekly garage sale trek... I became enamoured of this front yard. I liked what they did instead of lawn. The roses are for all of you on this wonderful day.
And this bouquet is a welcome home from Hawaii to our dear Teri C. ,
who we all know as a Daisy lover personified.
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday Everyone
Many of you are already familiar with the wonderful art of our friend, Soulbrush.
She and I made a trade of ATCs and these are the ones I chose from her collection. I am so pleased with them! Thank you Soul.
And then...Last week I received this adorable gathering bag from Maya of Maya Made Blog:
Her work is so perfectly made...this bag is made from a re-purposed burlap bag and believe it or not it is very soft to the touch. Maya gave this away and I was the lucky winner! I told her I'd give it to my grand kids and help them explore nature, record their finds in the little note book that comes with it. Her note card is also very attractive with the bird stamp on it as you can see.
Please go to her blog and/or Etsy store to see more of her lovely hand made items. You will be as pleased as I am to have found her blog. Thank you again, Maya! ;-)
As for me?
I am still with spinning head from my wonderful day at the art gallery
on Sunday~ My cup absolutely runnith over!

    ATCs are simply your art put on a card the size of a business card:
    2 1/2" X 3 1/2"'s okay to make a full page of something and cut it up to cards that size as well. Be sure to let me know if/when you want to trade!
