Gosh, what a busy September this has been so far.  Our clan is slowly getting into the routine of both children being in school all day.  I miss my babes, but I do have to admit that things have finally been getting done around here!  I have a full two-page list of house projects that I'm plowing through, while finding more time to craft. 

I'll be listing these petite frames with vintage wallpaper in my Etsy shop:

They've got a touch of German glass glitter on them:

Along with crafting, I've got more time to read the latest from Jeanne D'Arc Living.  Here's what arrived in my mail last week from talented Roberta:

What's in the brown package underneath, you wonder?  Never too early to start the Christmas inspiration flowing with JDL's new Christmas book "A Touch of France"!!!

Thanks for sending the order quickly Roberta!

Both publications do not disappoint.  I am especially enamored with the article on dress forms in the September issue. 

When I can pull myself away from this good reading, I find time to make angel wings for the shop.  Some small ones like these will be listed soon:

And stay tuned, because I'm planning a 1st anniversary of my Etsy store celebration giveaway and it will definitely include a pair of the large wings:

Thanks for all your encouragement this past year! 
I'll be linking to White Wednesday today - better late than never.

it sounds like you are going to have your hands full with that list! I hope there are some fun things on it! I LOVE your new frames, the glitter is just perfect. A blogger recently sent me my first copy of JDL and I am savoring it slowly! The pictures are so dreamy!

I hope you are enjoying some cooler days, Susan!
