Hey Everyone, It's me Marilyn. Patty's on vacation and I am afraid you are stuck with me this month. I've learned a greater appreciation for what Patty does around here, that's for sure. She was able to pick one favorite each month of the various categories, I couldn't. So for this month, we will have a 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place for my favorite picks. It was so difficult because there were so many fabulous items all of you listed this month of July.

Among the greats was Connie Ryans'  of Connie Ryan123, made of Sterling Silver, Copper and Agate her  Pendant was to die for. There were so many more I wish that I could list them all here. But to my picks. Starting out with Numero Uno.

This is Senem of Seno and she is from Ankara. I chose her lovely Handmade Scarf as my first pick. It's a sensual blend of pinks and grays done in Chiffon,  it even looks soft and will be perfect for a cool summer eve.

Patties Pieces
For Numero Dos we have Patty from Patties Pieces coming in with the this gorgeous crocheted necklace.  Patty's jewelry is so unique and clever it was difficult to make a choice between this one and another Patty listed this month. But I love the light, airy, feel to this creation, and the colors will be perfect for this fall weather rapidly approaching.

Dr. Seuss Pic Frame

My third pick is from Sharon of Lilac Cottage Cards. I love this delightful picture frame decorated with pictures from Dr. Seuss. It would be perfect for a child's room or a child's photo. Anywhere,  anyway, it will brighten any room.

    Great picks, Marilyn! It's always interesting to walk in someone else's shoes, isn't it?

    I LOVE the "genius at work" picture of you!!!

  2. Patty has her hands full picking favorites, it's really difficult. I think the picture shows a lot about me, off in LaLa Land.

  3. Patty - thanks for choosing my Dr. Seuss frame. I read Dr. Seuss to my kids and now I'm reading his books to my grand-childen. When I saw this paper, I knew I wanted to make something for kids...Sharon
