A Day of Stamping!

Well, today after I dropped off my son I took a quick trip to the thrift store.

I didn't see much going on but I did spot four pretty plates.

I'm not familiar enough with Transferware, but these do look something like Transferware.

I'll have to check with my buddy Sue, she knows a lot more about this then I do.

The back of the plates read "Double Phoenix, Nikko". Any information you gals can give me would be great!


I've had a project in the back of my mind that I was able to finally work on today.

Here are some fun bags made from vintage flour sacks.

I am loving stamping and I had so much fun using old and new stamps to create these bags.

Inside of each bag I tucked a little packet of lavender to give it a wonderful smell.


My mind is now racing with other stamping possibilities!

Somebody stop me!

To Fun!
