something old, something new,

something borrowed, something blue:
studio friday
This is my first contribution to Studio Friday. I think this is a fun challenge and really enjoyed this theme, though I can't promise I'll be able to participate on a weekly basis. I'm excited to show off some of my favorite things right now. Sorry for the low quality photograph (bad lighting!).
Something Old: Glass jars- one filled with old oil paints my mom got for free and passed on to me. I love these all arranged in the jar like that. So colorful and old- I love that. The other jar is filled with old sewing notions that belonged to my hubby's grandparents.
Something New: See that pretty altered window? It was created by the fabulous Teresa McFayden and purchased a short while ago. I've been wanting to show you so bad but my studio is still such a mess and it doesn't have a "home" just yet.
Something Borrowed: The retired Stampin' Up! stamp set "Feathered Hope"- borrowed from my Mom some time ago. I seriously LOVE this set so unless you ask for it, Mom, I'll just hold onto it. haha!
Something Blue: I wish this photograph was clearer so you can see all the wonderful notions on this cagelet of mine, by Alicia Paulson. It's so beautiful!! Don't worry, though, I'm sure you'll see more of it in the future. Here is a photo of my second cagelet. :) I love these creations!

I saw the altered window when Teresa McFayden posted it on her site! It is so COOL! In fact, I think it is one of the coolest things in the world! It found a really great home!!! Thanks for posting the picture!
