April in Paris 2011

This is the fourth year that I've attended the April in Paris event at The Porch and Atelier in Buffalo Minnesota! What a wonderful time we had this year! xoxo This year in attendance were: Therese, Bonnie, Mary, Sheila, LaVonne and Dawn

This was our table. I loved those vintage lamps.

We won some prizes and enjoyed some de la bonne nourriture, un bon repas!

Can't wait until next year. xoxo

Inspired by Thomas Campbell

Today I am noodling around on the computer, giving myself 30 minutes of free time to just look around on the internet and see what jumps out at me...came upon these amazing sewn collages by Thomas Campbell. I would love to take all of the bits and bobs of paper, photos, artwork and other ephemera and make some of these little beauties.
