Beautiful mirror and shoe by Linda Postma, Texas
At the Texas Beauty in Blue we did an embellished shoe and mirror swap.  I was so darn LUCKY to get the fabulous Linda Postma's shoe AND mirror.. now Linda is a Texas gal and sooo very creative and fun but she does not have a blog !!!  Puhleeeze Linda get a blog so we can see your beautiful creations and keep up with you.

While in Texas we went to Canton, the home of first Monday Trade Days and my French pal

Oh Linen...The way to my heart!! What a fun swap, that shoe is sooo cute! I know what you mean about getting on my own way with the projector...Once i figured out which side to be on so as not to block the projection, every thing worked out OK!LOL

I loved the idea of the mirror and shoe swap when you first mentioned it, and I think what you got in the swap is just plain beautiful. I agree that a person with that kind of talent needs a blog. I would love to see more!

All such beautiful things!!! I thought that Canton, TX was also home of the country's largest yardsale, held once a month. I could be wrong, but I have always wanted to go there!! Which is why I remembered the name! You scored with those lovely linens!
HPS!
