Bella Babes Dreaming

February 3, 2009

This is one of the inspired artwork pieces from Teresa McFayden's Bellarama. Once I saw Teresa's artwork and the story behind it, I just had to make one for myself.

I put together this canvas with vintage sheet music and ledger papers that I received from my Junkin' Journal swap papers from Silver Bella. I then added a silver ribbon and round broach that I topped with a crown tie tack that had been my Granddad Jones. I couldn't believe my eyes as I was trying to find some vintage pieces to embellish and just happen to spot this one.

I then dug around in more of my Junkin' Journal swap papers and found a perfect quote from Ann Landers on dreaming.

"Current research has shown that there is indeed a definite need for dreaming."

It was a dream that came true for me last year when I attended Silver Bella. I have hung this on my wall above my desk, to remind myself daily that dreaming is an essential need just like food, water and sleep. A dream is a wish your heart makes when your fast asleep. Here's to dreaming...

I love it! Dreaming seems to be the theme for the day in the blog world. I'm embarking on a long time dream and my friend Maisy at wrote about figuring out what your dreams are.

I curled into my bed last night with my Somerset magazine in tow...I started reading a lovely article that I soon realized was about you and your love for a plastic little cherb doll. I was so honored to say I know you! Kara
