This stamp is what started me on my journey to Collageartstudio. I searched the term "Papa Bear"(thats what I used to call my Grandpa) and this cute stamp came up as a result. I found this wonderful stamp, but I also found a shop full of beautiful items.

I borrowed an excerpt from Jeanne's shop profile to get a little more background on the lady behind the shop. In her own words:

"I am a wife, mother, artist from the Midwest who enjoys reading, gardening, cooking, decorating, listening to music, sipping lattes, hanging out at art museums, and cruisin' in my VW Beetle."

Sounds like a great lady to me! Cruisin' in the VW sounds great!

All of Jeanne's collage work is beautiful. I am rather fond of the "Bathing Beauties" tag. The tag is from my her "Summer At The Beach" series and features a copy of a vintage photo of 2 bathing beauties, layered papers, both new and vintage, a variety of vintage braided trims, shells, button, beads, a touch of glitter and is finished off with pretty fibers and ribbon through the hole. The back is covered in blue scroll patterned paper and the word "SUMMER" - 1"x 3/4" - typed out on an old vintage typewriter. It is gorgeous.

The Green Rose plates are so pretty. They are a set of four 8-inch bone china plates by Royal Albert. These beauties are are green with magenta, pink, and yellow roses and rimmed in gold.
These would be wonderful to use at a tea party!
