The whole world is full of creativity and talent: all these goodies were at one time dreams in the mind of their creator. I never thought I’d be a girly girl, love pink, prissy, frilly, lacy, flowery, foo foo femenine stuff. But here I am, putting together little collections of treasures I’ve picked up for pennies and launching them to stardom. Oh, I could resell them on ebay, but not just yet. That would be like putting an old racehorse out to pasture before it ever hit the track! Ahhh…savor the charm and playfulness of days gone by.
Christmas day was fast approaching, and still I hadn’t found anything for my sister. I was on the lookout for something just right in a thrift store, or second hand shop, or even in my house somewhere (We try not to buy NEW things for eachother..that just wouldn’t do..) But nothing had jumped out at me, and time was running out. She too had made a pile last summer from fabrics she liked, letting me know the kind of quilt she’d prefer. But I couldn’t possibly have time for that. Not this year. Or did I? I had started one of my own with larger squares. The work goes fast when the squares are big.
Found these little cuties for twenty-five cents each on one of my thirft outings. They were dying to make an appearance here on my blog, so I set them up in a few different poses…and…well…a star is born..or a snowflake..or something like that.
Been adding to the vintage ornament collection too!
Here’s wishing you many magical moments!
Since my daughter and I used to spend time creating the perfect setting for tea parties, it seemed fitting that her bridal shower be a tea party on a grand scale. The preparations were endless, and the day turned out magical! A wonderful turnout of friends and family shared this special day, and now that it’s over, I keep grinning thinking of it: Anne with her apron and “white meat only” chicken salad. (Which was great by the way! Good job Anne.) Linda at the blender mixing some pink divine grapefruit margaritas, and Adrienne filling her pink eggs. Everything pink and prissy and foo foo galore! I really like being a girl!
I recently scored the Jackpot when I was granted a “have at it” over a huge selection of vintage fabric. I have been in a quilting daze ever since! Here is my first quilt top. I fogot to take the finished photos, as it is off in a package to my neice who decided to give birth a bit early. But you get the idea..
