Years ago I created an apron pattern and shared it on the blog. This year I decided to bring back that apron and add them to my line of handmade items. Made out of a vintage tablecloth, thus the name Vintage Tablecloth Apron, each one is unique and one-of-a-kind.
My small, word art pillows have been so fun to create. The vintage detailing that make them one-of-a-kind is my favorite thing about them.
All the lace, doilies, trim, yo-yos, and fabric scraps are vintage finds. Body of pillow is our signature canvas fabaric as well as the frayed-edge pieces on which the words are stenciled.
Today I’m sharing my Easter Tablescape and some Spring decor. Springtime is always so fresh and invigorating, the warming air, bright sunshine, green grass, and blooming flowers.
Easter is almost here once again.
I love springtime – the fresh green grass, the warm sunshine after the winter cold, the new life appearing.
If you love to add some pretty chocolates to your Easter table these eggs and bunnies are sure to be a hit!
Last summer I introduced some new, smaller size pillow designs. I took my original designs from my larger pillows and began making them smaller for the smaller size pillows. These are perfect for a kids room, an accent pillow along with the larger pillow designs, on a bed, a small side chair, or just about anywhere you want to tuck a fun, squishy pillow.
I have the most totally cool, jeweled cake tester ever. It’s beautiful and functional, and makes cake baking much more fun and exciting! I baked up a batch of muffins as soon as this beauty arrived just so I could use it.
I’ve been enjoying the slower pace of the last couple months. I’ve spent more time in my workroom just creating. Playing with new fabrics, fonts, and colors. Planning out a bit of a schedule for the year.
We recently had a family movie night and watched the newest ‘Cinderella’ movie. The one with real people. I know it’s not exactly a brand new movie. But we hadn’t seen it yet, and I have to say it’s really good. I have always loved the Cinderella story – I’m a romantic at heart, what can I say?! I love a rags to riches story 🙂
Teff flour and Chocolate goodness – I’m sure the word chocolate grabs your attention and definitely sounds like some yummy ‘good-ness’. But does the ‘teff flour’ stop you in your tracks just a bit? Make you say, WHAT is teff flour?
I’d never heard of it either – and I’m pretty in the know about different flours since I tend to stay away from wheat flour these days.
Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116 – Love is not Love… I find more and more I am drawn to the era of Victorian England and to the writings the people of Victorian England liked to read. Not all of it, mind you, but the romance and beauty portrayed draws me. Admittedly, I am quite happy to NOT […]
Squishy, Puffy Hearts, these are not just for Valentine’s Day! Hearts have been gaining traction as a trend for a few years now. We are starting to see them everywhere. I’ll admit the thought of hearts in decor does conjure up images in my brain of pastel hearts and geese lining the top of the […]
Sentimental Heart-Shaped Sweater Pillows Sentimental because the sweater used belonged to my Grandma. Heart-Shaped because of the obvious – the pillows are made in the shape of a heart. Sweater because, of course, the pillows are made from a sweater. And pillows because that’s what I do – I make pillows. The word vintage could possibly […]
This year for Valentine’s I created a Heart Shaped Sachet made from a sweater. And not just any sweater. This creation comes with a story behind it – my favorite creations always do. I think I’ve mentioned before that my favorite decor is when it’s not only beautiful, but it also has meaning. I’m all […]
