Team Love - some of my favorite things

My teammates have been listing some great items and I have picked a few of my favorites to share.  I am so blessed to get to chat with some wonderful people from all over the country and a few countries on the other side of the pond...as those in UK say. I LOVE getting to know them and learning things from them and admiring their talents.

This beautiful Envelope Pocket Album for photos was created by Judy of Mister Pen Quinn and JN Originals Judy always uses beautiful supplies and is one of the most immaculate artisans I know. No matter if the medium is paper or fiber each and every item Judy makes is beautifully crafted.


I've been sewing for most of my life so I appreciate well made clothing. Hannah from BananaOrangeApple creates adorable clothing for children as well as some lovely quilts. This patchwork twirly dress is made from upcycled fabrics and is almost as sweet as her model.


Please meet Harry Potter Parker. Isn't he cute with his owl Hedwig and the Sorting Hat. Parker is an original creation made by Katie of Kater's Acres. Katie's imagination is endless as she creates these adorable little guys and their friends.


Kate from Paintings by Kate Ladd is a wonderful artist. This beautiful painting of Two Iris is a lovely example of her talent. Kate also paints abstracts, landscapes collages and some very lovely floorcloths and home decor.


Joanna of The Dove Stop offers some beautiful floral felt brooches (and you know how I love flowers!) and some adorable cupcake ones as well as beautiful greeting cards. Since this year is Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee I had to feature Joanna's Queenie Brooch...besides, it makes me smile.


My last featured shop artist today is Kim of Clay by Kim.  Kim's shop is delightful especially if you are like me and love flowers, whimsey and a bit of fairy dust. Isn't this Cottage Fairy Door just lovely? I can imagine a fairy peeking at me through the little stained glass window...so sweet!

Many blessings!! Zuda Gay

I like the Queenie brooch. I've been reading a book I got from my grandma in anticipation of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
