Have Not Been Posting Life Has Been Too Busy

So sorry I have not been updating my blog...wanted to do a giveaway, wanted to get some more creations done...had shoulder surgery instead and found out the recovery time was not a few weeks as I was told before is 6 to 9 months...lovely surprise...I am much better but it is crazy some days I am having such horrible pain cannot do much of anything...did start my Hospice Volunteering finally..that has been going fantastic...I simply love it, really believe that God directed this entire move into this field and I am so thankful to my God for doing is very satisfying...I highly recommend it to all who feel the need to give back in this world...hopefully I will be making some new items soon...I have ordered lots of jewelry supplies and am coming up with ideas that will create a line of jewelry that I hope you will fall in love with. Hope you all have a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving Day with all those you love...don't forget to thank every soldier you see and hug them, if they do not mind...until next time.....Hugs, Becky

I Have Left My Blog Lonely For Too Long

It has been so long since I paid any attention to my sorry everyone. I thought I would update everybody. Last Tuesday I had shoulder surgery which I had been trying to get done for awhile now. Torn Labrum...all repaired now, just have to wait for the achiness to go away. I want so badly to get back to creating more clocks...I have now starting producing a line of vintage repurposed jewelry that I think you will love as I do. I may even add more lace items to my collection. I have always collected and loved vintage lace...ideas will come to me as I look at and hold it. There is a huge 40% off sale in my shop right now...just put the word  thankful  in the coupon code and click on recalculate for the huge savings. Hopefully, within the next few weeks I will be able to use my right arm to make some new creations for you all. See you in The Cottage soon!

I  just love the idea of "Giveaways" but having never done clue as to what needs to be done..I would be grateful if someone would either post something here to teach me the ins and outs of a giveaway or if you would rather email me, that would be just fine   I am looking forward to hearing from some knowledgeable bloggers...If any other blogs would like to join me in a Giveaway just let me know...if you can teach me how to hook something like that up...I would go for it..thank you so much for all your kindness and willingness to share...Hugs, Becky

Spring Is In The Air...I think..burrrrr

I keep thinking Spring is coming and then we get another day in the 40's....I am longing for the warming of the soil...of my little corner of the world...I want to get out to the fleas and look at all the unexpected treasures that pop up.
My sweet, adorable husband was kind enough to make me some fork easels for my website...of course, I have not had time to put them on but they will get there someday. They make lovely display stands for photos, tintypes and vintage postcards...I even  use one in the kitchecn to rest my receipe card on while mixing a yummy treat...which reminds me, I found  a receipe that calls for Devil's Food Cake Mix and a can of Pumpkin...that is all...the cupcakes look yummy. I really have to try them...
Here are some pictures of the fork easels...let me know what you think...

Next I have a bunch of vintage silverplate spoon hooks to embellish..I will work on them, today. So many ideas rumbling around in my head...that is the true sign that Spring is coming, now the temps outside need to cooperate.
 My craft room is full of vintage jewelry taken apart ready to be repurposed and lace by the ton that needs to be transformed into something wonderfully useful...I love the feeling that comes over you when your own Creativity Spring begins to overflow....visions of lovely every where I look.Until next time...

Check out the new clocks I added to "The Cottage" just the other day

Just added some really pretty new vintage rose china clocks to Becky's Rose Cottage the other day...something new and different...using vintage moulding, lace, parchment roses and some pretty vinage rhinestones...I am working on some silverplate fork stands and spoon hooks, too..trying to decide if I should leave them as is or add something to them to shabby chic them up....any suggestions out there?

The Passing Of My Father-In-Law

The past month or so has been very difficult. My 91 yr old father-in-law just started wearing down. I think since his wife passed in 2007 he has been so sad that he had trouble finding a reason to continue. One infection after another would happen at the nursing home. A trip to the hospital...tests, more and more medicine. He was transfered to Heartland Hospice in Hockessin, De a week ago this past Monday. On 1/20/2011 he passed into the arms of the angels. Although it was very hard because we all love him so...we could see how much work it was for him to pass. He was so weary of it all. I will always miss him, he was my last parent in this world but am thankful that God will make sure there is no more suffering for Dad. He was a very good and loving man. After the services are done I am going to try to slowly get back to my creative side...need to create some lovely pieces to pull me back to the land of the living. Sometimes that adjustment is hard to do but God does not want us to worry about those that are safe with Him now. I want to thank all my friends for all their kindness during this hard time. God Bless You All.  With much love, Becky

The Start of a New Year

Well, the Holidays are over and the New Year has begun...always exciting to think of what it will bring..what changes are in store. I have been wanting to do more work with lace. Although, I am not much of a sewer, I may have to do some learning because visions of lacy delights keep dancing through my mind. I put aside a few articles of clothing to see if I could repurpose them with some of my vintage lace...everytime I see a piece of vintage lace lately it has just moved me.
Also, I have visited so many beautiful blogs lately with giveaways to just die for...lace, vintage buttons, and whatnots. I would love to do one here in the near future as soon as I can figure out how to work it all out. I am still rather new to this blogging business. If anyone out there in blog world would like to send me some info on how I could set up a giveaway with one of those random number generators I would be so thankful. I just love the idea of bundling up some goodies to give to someone. There is nothing like receiving a package of vintage goodies in the hopefully before too long I will learn how to do it and have a giveaway of my own here at Becky's Blogging Place. Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season that was very satisfying for you. Wishing you all a Happy New Year full of vintage glory and creative fun!
