Valentines, Seed Catalogs and Paper Dolls

Just love the cobwebs and flowers..

This is more real to our Valentines Day ...lots of snow...

That time of year to drool over the seed new favorites are' Grandma's Garden Catalog'
lots of interesting information and heirloom 'Bull's Blood Beet' not only is it sweet and tasty but the juice from this beet is the only red food coloring allowed by Swedish law.. and new to me 'Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds' a wonderful glossy catalog with beautiful photos of heirloom veggies and flowers..will be ordering from these catalogs for sure!! ..

Added a couple sets of Valentine Paper Dolls to my Etsy store..Made these yesterday at the kitchen table as a downtime in my papier mache projects...While waiting on supplies and pieces in my drying box ..So played with my paper stuff and happy with results..
Scanned and Printed copies of Vintage German Paper Doll parts and my favorite scrapbook paper ...added some rubber stamping and the fun inspired part..mounted on a a popsicle stick!
