Mid-Century Modern

made it to the front page of etsy

I just love mid-century design, especially the textiles. Are you surprised? LOL! I have had some fun with some funky fabrics from that period - pure eye candy to me...

And the Winner is...

...Annette from Cottage In The Sun! I shipped her out a stack of sweet smelling lavender sachets crafted from brightly colored vintage napkins. She is a member of the Cottage Style Street Team on etsy and makes wonderful heart, star & cross wall art from salvaged antique and vintage 1800s to 1900s tin ceiling tiles. Here are a few of the items from her shop...

Thanks for stopping by today and hope everyone has a fab week!

Oh, to be two again...

...going to the mailbox with Rebecca is so much fun, she meanders her way there, stopping to look at ordinary things or changing course to go and see if she can find something - she will be two in May and is just adorable. This picture was taken while going to the mailbox on the day before Easter - she had to stop and look for earthworms - they had crawled out of the ground the last time we ventured to the mailbox because the ground was so wet....Oh, to be two again...

Shortly after I opened my etsy shop, Apartment Therapy featured some of my bedspreads on their blog. I have sold all those spreads now and wish I still had them! LOL!! Once a chenille junkie, always a chenille junkie! I trust that you all are well and had a great Easter! This Southern Belle is counting the days until April 15th and then she can have a life again! I am itching to get into the studio and craft once more! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!!
