Joining Grow Your Blog Party with 2 Bags Full and Pink Saturday



Welcome to the Grow Your Own Blog Party hosted by the lovely Vicki  of  2 Bags Full  to connect you with other blogs you may not had a chance to visit yet. I am Marilou of Lulu's Lovlies and this is my personal blog where I  share bits and pieces of my life,  join blog parties, share the love of found vintage treasures and the love of creating. I love everything vintage, victorian and shabby cottage chic. Everything and everyone has a story making blogging a rewarding journey of old and new friendships as you never know what is around the corner in this big "adventure called life". My other blog Lulu's Heartful Creations is where I share most of my work and what I create for Swaps. I would like to give a big Thank You to Vicki for hosting this Blog Party and another sweet lady Beverly of  How Sweet The Sound  for hosting Pink Saturdays, the first blog party I ever participated in starting in 2009. I'm an active member and Group Leader of  Tag Art at  Roses On My Table  where you will find more wonderful Creative souls and Artist to connect with. Above I have shared a bit of my work, my favorite is working with fabrics, vintage finds and all types of mixed media. that include vintage photographs. I am also participating in Vicki's "Pink Scarf Project" which runs all year and I'm already working on my "special scarf" for this project.  I hope you will return as I will be hosting a Giveaway at a later date for all Followers who leave comment and it will be announced.

Hi Marilou. Thank you for popping into my blog. Time fairy, huh? I don't think I've ever found one of those. But I'd love to enjoy some drawing with you sometime. It would be fun! Thank you for sharing some of your lovely work here. I think the birds with the blue trimmed crochet are my favorite.
