There's No Place Like Home

Well, we are back and as much as I enjoyed seeing my parents and viewing that gorgeous turquoise sea every day, there really is "no place like home".

I was going to share some photos of our trip, but my Farmboy left for Austin and took the camera with him. The camera and his laptop are where all of the pictures are. So I will have to wait a few days before I can share them.

In the meantime, I missed the Cottage Style Street Team's "Christmas in July" event.

I made two Tussie Mussies for the event.

The color in the photo above does not do it justice at all. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't get it to look right either.

I listed them in the shop before for I left since I wasn't going to be here for the event and the pink one sold before the event ever took place. Thanks Jenn! :)

Here is the blue "Noel" tussie.

This one is still available here. There are still many gorgeous Christmas goodies to be found from the other members of the CSSTeam. Just put "cssteam" and "Christmas" and "July" in the Etsy search engine to find them.

I also want to share this with those of you who don't know yet.
LolliShops is a juried, online selling venue for talented artists, collectors of vintage and art supply vendors
Sadie Lou, the marvelous idea guru herself, is creating the ultimate shopping/selling/information gathering venue. LolliShops will be THE place to go to for all of your "Elegant Whimsy, Romantic Inspirations, Fanciful Creations" needs! Before the official Grand Opening in the fall, she will have a trial run, so to say. There will be a few shops open so that the bugs and kinks can be taken care of before all of the other artists open their shop doors there. Including mine. Yep, I'll be opening an Alisa Jane shop at LolliShops! I am SO excited about this! You can keep up to date on all of the LolliShop happenings at the LolliShop blog. Seriously, you have to go check it out right now!

What are you waiting for?! Go!!
Talk to you later! :)

I bookmarked her and will go back to visit. Signed up with my email too. I LOVE your tussie-mussies! I have loved them ever since the early 1990s when I use to read herb books and first caught onto them. I keep saying one day I'm going to sit down and make one...

I can't wait to see your vacation pictures! It sounds dreamy but there certainly is no place like home.

Your tussie mussies are everything and more that I thought they would be.

Congrats on the lollishops venture!
