Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

IT'S TIME FOR PINK SATURDAY

I have been busy this week creating for my website. I feel as though I am all over the place, and so I will share my pinks in my work. My garden is sleeping and needs to be attended too, so we are not going outside at all this week.....sorry....
I love pink and black together and love this fabric. I created a pillow using some white dots on black for a border. The ruffle has daisies and roses.....a great combo.
This is the first in my keepsake box collection. Decorated inside with pretty fabrics, pearls and a large paper rose. The outside is painted a pink and the top is bordered in paper roses, vintage lace in the center with a large pink paper rose and pearls. I just had to add the key to my heart with a satin bow.
Back to doing some weaving....I warned you, didn't I??!! I am all over the place. :) A pretty egg basket hand woven by moi. There is a gods eye on both sides, some yarn around the gods eye and a lovely reddish color dye along with natural reed. The bottom basket has curls and makes a great door basket or basket to hang on the wall. I use one to collect the outgoing and incoming mail. All of this is available on my website Someplace in Thyme.
I want to thank Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for making another Pink Saturday possible. THANK YOU so much Ms. Beverly!!!

I love all of your pinks today, especially that gorgeous pillow! There's a gal that teaches a different basket every month at the church across the street from me, but I quit when our house became overrun with baskets!

I'm jealous of your good weather. The snow is finally melting here and it was weird to get out of the house today and see grass.

Your grandkids are all cuties. I think all little boys love tractors. My youngest cousin was obsessed with them for YEARS and had John Deere everything. Looks like you might be collecting some pink tractor stuff someday too.
