Vintage Earbobs!

Yeah, I seem to get a bit carried away sometimes, well,
most of the time, but aren't they just so unique and pretty
picked them up in an antique store this week when
I went to pick up my antique cotton picking basket!
Hope y'all have a fab weekend!

How Time Flies - 200th Post!

antique cotton basket i scored today at an antique store in town

ca 1920s - 1920s seems like yesterday my dear friend Barbara nudged me into blogging land! This is my 200th post - wow! It has been fun sharing the good, bad and the ugly and sometimes the quite beautiful with y'all. Thank you for laughing with me and crying with me and being faithful to support me in my efforts with my excessive need to create things and occasional rants about things I have no control over! The words are not flowing very freely today, I am struggling to find the right ones, so I am hoping y'all can read between the lines and know how much I appreciate each and everyone of you! Y'all have a great weekend and, until next time, take care and do something that you enjoy! Take time for you! You are special! xoxo

Vintage Apron Fetish

Oh My! Just when I think I have gotten my vintage textile fix, I get into something these vintage aprons and I am in love all over again. I recently purchased about 60 vintage aprons, yes, I said 60! There is nothing like living large! LOL!! I have most of them washed, except the ones I have to mend. So now my laundry baskets are fluffed to the ceiling with aprons waiting to be ironed. I don't really like ironing, but I like how crisp and pretty my iron makes things, so away I go and this is what I have done so far....

Most of these were made by homemakers long ago - I love the variety of colors, patterns and designs - they show the personality of the gals who made them. Some are for sale in my shop and some are in my kitchen drawer - until next time :-) and thanks for stopping in!

Christmas Tree Ornaments - Scrabble Style

It will be here before you can turn around - time to trim the tree. That is my favorite part of Christmas! Love the smell that the fresh tree adds to the house, love placing each ornament on it and love the children's eyes lighting up when they see it! These scrabble tile mini wreaths are just so cute - I had a ball making them...

I made some last year too and decorated the tree in my studio -
hope y'all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping in!
