Heel of Approval badge

I am in awe of all the beautiful blogs and the collections of awards and badges that so many talented bloggers have rightfully earned.
I am very proud of my two badges collected so far. One being the Kreative Blogger Award and the other is Gail Lackey's "I've Been Bopped" badge. I covet this badge of Gails. She's a marvelous person, so considerate and talented. She inspired me years ago to follow my dream of becoming an artist. And thanks to her encouragement, I do consider myself a fellow artist now! You'll find Gails bop badge on my sidebar. You'll enjoy your visit on her very entertaining blog.
Bigg Huggs Gail!
So, anyway, I've created my own badge,
the Mrs.T.Bagg's "Heel of Approval"
(supposed to sound like "Seal of ..." my attempt at humor!)
For those of you who love collecting badges, this one is free for the taking. If I'm following you, then you're already a favorite of mine and I'd be thrilled to have you post MRS.T.BAGG's approval on your blog. Just grab and post it with a link back to me and let me know you've "been approved". If we've not "met" yet, then just drop me a welcome to your blog and I'm sure we'll be fast friends! Haven't met a blogger I didn't like yet!
It's just for fun. So enjoy!

Kreativ Blogger Award

Isn't this just the nicest thing!
Thank you Tracy Topps for nominating my blog for this award.
Please visit Tracy's blog at

Now, there are rules for accepting this award. They are as follows:

1. Thank the person that gave it to you.

2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog.

3. Link to the person who nominated you.

4. Name 7 things about yourself that nobody knows.

5. Nominate 7 kreativ bloggers.

6. Post links to the 7 blogs that you nominate.

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know that you nominate them.

OK, so I've got the first 3 down.

I'll be back tomorrow evening to complete the other 4.

Thanks again Tracy...

Ok, to continue...

7 things about myself that nobody knows:

1. I'm really not superwoman!

I find the balancing act of family, day jobs, art studio, blogging, facebook, and etsy quite challenging. And I wonder how all these wonderfully talented bloggers balance their computer time with their family time?

2. I hide a bag of Cod Chips in the console of my truck. And I don't share!

3. I still enjoy watching soaps! I grew up on "As The World Turns" and watch it whenever I can!

4. I have a pair of 3 inch heels in my closet that I've never worn and never will, and will never part with!

5. Honey blonde is not my natural hair color. I'm quite sure my hair is snowy white by now but I will never know for certain as I will be coloring my hair as long as you'll be looking!

6. I enjoy being 25 pounds overweight and only pretend to diet!

7. I have a favorite daydream that I and MRS.T.BAGG will one day be on OPRAH and that Oprah will pass out a MRS.T.BAGG art doll to everyone in the audience. AND THE AUDIENCE GOES WILD! :o)

And now to nominate 7 deserving kreativ bloggers for this lovely award. A big thank you to these artists for starting my day off with their beautiful offerings making my morning cup of coffee so much sweeter!

1. (as I go to retieve this link, I have to pause and look at the latest post on Karens blog! You can always find something new on this amazing blog! Thanks Karen!)







Thanks again Tracy for gracing my blog with this award, I'm honored!

Dreaming of Hawaii...

Oh, to be in beautiful Hawaii again. I need sunshine!!

These are some of my favorite photos from my trip to Honolulu just last November.

This tree stands in front of the oldest hotel on the island. I don't remember the name of the hotel, but it was gorgeous! I love how lacey the branches are against the sky. I love trees...

I had a delightful afternoon tea on my second day in Honolulu. Tea served in silver and china on an outdoor terrace, at a lovely hotel, right on the beach. All while enjoying the view of surfers and sunbathers.
I was joined by Terrie Lee Steinmeyer, a very talented artist of needlework art.
And it turns out she's quite the doll artist too. I think she would be successful at any endeavor! I am tickled to to call her by her pet name "tlee", to me it sounds like "tea lea". Love that! Love everything tea related :)

This was the view from the balcony of my hotel taken on the first evening after I arrived. Shopping- right under my nose!

More pics of Hawaii to come soon!
Have a sunny day!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

I learned today on the Travel Channel that the three leafed shamrock is considered representive of the Holy Trinity in Ireland. I didn't know that. It does resemble the fleur de lis, seen as a royal symbol and found in the beautiful windows of cathedrals.

I learn something new every day...

I'm attending a Cupids Charms Workshop!

Look at these beautiful jewelry charms!
I have bought several of these wonderful necklaces and have even
sold one right off my own neck!
The lady loved it so much,
when I told her I'd be happy to get one for her,
she insisted I give her my own,
right then and there,
and replace it for myself!
So I did!!

I have admired this style of jewelry for some time.
When I learned I could take a workshop
and learn how to make these amazing charms myself,
I signed right up!
I can hardly wait to fashion my own charms,
perhaps using the art trading cards
I've been making with my MRS.T.BAGG images!

And look at the back of these gorgeous charms!
Tiny postcards!
They're adorable.
You must visit this wonderfully talented artist, Joy Jones at her website
and also check out her blog -
I just love artists who share their talent with all of us.
The workshop I'm attending is in St. Petersburg, Florida. I will be attending the April 1st class on how to make these lovely charms.
Joy offers a variety of workshops, all held in St. Petersburg, FL.
My sailor/husband/loveofmylife Jerry
is thrilled to be able to walk among the sailboats while I attend this day long class.
Horray for both of us!!

I know, I know.
I've barely got a handle on the first blog page
and I've already uploaded another one!
I'm hooked, what can I say!


I've been planning this site for quite a while.
I've been making these little videos
of MRS.T.BAGG on Slide.
Slide is a great site for making
fun video slide shows.
I decided to create a place to "park" the
retired videos where
I could go and visit them from time to time.
They were too fun to make and I hated to delete them
into the ether, hence the new blogspot.
If you're interested, just click on the
Movie Ticket Stub
for your free ticket to the movies!
You'll find the ticket stub near the top on the right side bar.
You'll find a pair of Ruby Slippers in the theater that will
magically transport
you back here
when you're done.
Don't forget you coke and popcorn!

A Grateful Day!

Ahh, I wish I was back on this Island, basking in the sun! What a wonderful cruise I had with my wonderful husband Jerry last year. I am so blessed!
This is my thought for today...
You know, it's not about how many "friends", fans or followers we collect, but about the recognition we receive from our fellow artists and from those who truly love us. And I am grateful to blogger for this format in which everyone is a "star"!
I wish you all a Blessed Day!

Well, it certainly has been a "day in the spotlight" for me! I'm very pleased with this article and the picture they used. The interview was done at the Greystone Antique and Marketplace, and I'm sitting in my little "artist corner" where I sometimes sculpt and enjoy meeting the shoppers as they browse through the antique store and my room. I so enjoy their surprise as they learn that I actually "make" the little faces!
Here's the link to this article-

This wonderful online magazine has posted an interview about me and MRS.T.BAGG today! Thanks to the editor Tina Wilson for so much "air time" in her magazine! And thanks to all who visit this blog page too! This is a wonderfully blessed day... :)
Oh, and here's the link!

The Royal Winton Chintz Collection Art Trading Cards

I've finally completed the art trading cards for MRS.T.BAGG. I've had so much fun making these out of vintage victorian greeting cards! This selection of teacup ladies are dressed in Royal Winton Chintz fabric.

The Royal Winton chintz fabrics are of beautiful floral patterns, originally found on Royal Winton china. The chintz patterns I have to offer MRS.T.BAGG in are- Summertime, Julia, Florence, and Welbeck in background colors of yellow, green and blue. this fabric was discontinued some time ago and as far as I know, are no longer available.

One of these beauiful cards will be included free with the purchase of your MRS.T.BAGG. The back of the card will have a fun little profile about the character purchased and will be signed at the bottom by the artist, me!

Thelma, No Boundaries- Enhanced by Blingee


I'm not much into the "blinkies", but I thought I'd play with it just to check it out. It actually turned out kind of cute.
A little "bling" can be fun!
