Back to the Drawing Board

Hey y'all - I had to put decorating at the Woodland Cottage on the back burner for about a week or so because I've been doing some seasonal designing back at the old drawing board for a client. Here's just a few little snippets of what I've been up to...

I also made a little Scripture art that I posted to Facebook recently just for fun...

" have been called to live in freedom...
use your freedom to serve one another in love."
Galatians 5:13

Do you remember this daisy trim from the 60's/70's...?

When I was about 8 years old, my Mom gave me a small vanity table that she had skirted in lime green dotted swiss fabric and trimmed with this daisy trim. I LOVED that looked so grown up and so cute. I guess I've loved that daisy trim ever since. It seems to be growing in popularity again along with lot's of other 70's icons and images. Here's a cute example from Etsy that I saw on Pinterest...

If you'd like to Pin this photo, please pin from the SureLeeQ link - thanks!

Meanwhile, even though I had to take a bit of a decorating break, I've still done quite a bit since my last post. I just have not had time to take good photos. I promise I will very soon - the cottage is looking so sweet and cozy and colorful and comfortable - just like I dreamed it could be!!  I'd LOVE to have you all over for coffee and cupcakes - wish I could!!

I'll leave you with this one little tease - this garage sale dresser hutch ($4.00 is what the tag says) is an important part of a big repurpose project I did for the living room at the cottage - can't wait to show you how it turned out!!

Have a great week friends - I'll be back soon with more reveal photos!!

Oh - not to forget - prayers for all those affected by the extreme heat, the wildfires, and the mess that tropical storm Debby is already causing...Lord please keep your children under the shadow of your wing!

Free Father's Day Printable

I created this Father's Day Scripture art last year and offered it as a free printable, so I thought I'd offer it as a freebie again this year! This is one of the illustrations I lost in a hard drive crash last year, so I was glad it was captured online and not lost forever...

The verse is Psalm 112:1-9 in the New Living Translation, and it is filled with lovely promises and blessings for those who "fear the Lord and delight in obeying his commands..."  This would be great printed out and made into an embellished card or maybe framed for Dad - whatever you'd like. Simply right click the image and save, then print from your printer. (Please remember it is available for personal, non-commercial use only.)

I hope you have a blessed Father's Day this weekend, honoring your Daddy, Husband, Grandpa, Brother or any other special Dad in your life!
