Today I stopped off at one of my favorite Thrift Stores and I found this delightfully sweet smock for $2.99! I just love the shabby cottage pink cabbage roses on the top half and the soft blueish-green ground coloring of the fabric! Wish I could find yardage like this!!! Anyway...couldn't resist bringing it home with me...I might just wear it some day~ For now I love how it looks on one of my girly girl dress forms!
I worked most of the day in my studio today and finished up another batch of vintage lace Christmas Stockings! I know...I know! Some of you are most certainly freaking out over this...but since I'm not sure when my hand/wrist surgery is going to be (or how long it will keep this high-
maintenance energy gal down!) I've opted to start creating and listing some of my Holiday offerings early this year.
I'm so excited about being able to use the French Netting (Netted Lace) I found last June at an antique mall in Dickson, Tennessee! It is just gorgeous....LOVE IT! Incredibly I snagged 11 yards of it for $50. That is such a GREAT PRICE!!!!
Did I ever tell you that I LOVE to sew???
:) :) :)
I'm not sure how I'm able to even concentrate on anything related to the Holidays given the 114 temps parts of Oklahoma have experienced of late, but I think staying inside my super-cool house is helping...at least in part. We are on water restrictions (mandatory water rationing) and my flowers are almost all dead. Everything looks so sad....
I visited Hobby Lobby yesterday and all their Christmas aisles are stocked and in place. No doubt to assist all the crafters out there who depend on the store's products to help produce their own Christmas and Holiday offerings.
You know...I love summer. I do. I love spending time with my Miss K and watching her frolic about in the sprinkler and pool. But...for the second or third year in a row now it's been miserable! The heat further enforces my belief that FALL is the best time of the year. I hope by October the heat will have subsided and we can enjoy a cook-out or two.
Love to you...
