Thrift Store Finds

Yay! Great vintage finds this week at the thrift!
I'm crazy about this red and whited checked
vintage blazer!
It fits me great, you can see it on me tomorrow.

And I found some cool white fabric 
and a splendid vintage twin sheet.
Both will be fab for future sewing projects!

Rainbow Dancing

 I absolutely love rainbows and dancing,
so what could be better than the two together!

Bye for now!

What I'm Working On

I'm working on square flowers from my 
flower loom.
I want to make a belt with them if possible.
Bye for now!

Thrift Store Finds

I'm so in love with my latest thrifted finds! 
I mean, check out the vintage craft book!
I've seen this on Ebay for lots of money
so I was so thrilled to see it at my thrift.
Plus, I got some yellow and some blue gingham fabric,
and some CUTE sandals! 
I just love the clog style bottoms.

Here is a close up of the craft book cover.

I think the illustration for this ad is fabulous!

And of course the colorful if somewhat cheesy 
craft projects.

This sun is amazing!

And there are always knit and crochet fashions.
I was especially amazed by the mod and space agey 
dresses with the yarn helmets and the fab tights!

Bye for now!

A New Day

Morning is such a peaceful time of day,
and for me and my hubby 
it's time to leisurely eat breakfast
and talk about things big and little.
We can look out our window and see the sun rise.

And light up the treehouse in the backyard 
till it's golden.

I also wanted to show a sweet pic I got today.
I spotted one of our bunnies tucked in a little bush.
Can you see him?
Bye for now.

Goodbye Barnabus

Goodbye to the wonderful actor, Jonathan Frid. 
He died last weekend at 87.
He brought the character of vampire Barnabus Collins to life (or death)
 in a way no other actor could. 
Dark Shadows will probably go down 
as my favorite tv show of all time.
It was the something I had to look forward to
every day after school,
and I couldn't wait to get home and watch it. 
And I don't think it would have been as compelling
without Mr. Frid.
He was the first to make vampires 
emotional and conflicted.
And he did it with style and grace.
Goody bye.

New in my shop is this Pretty Posh Pin 
in shades of yellow!

Yellow is one of my favorite colors
so I'd be wearing this one all the time!

I think is goes especially well 
with this belt!
Check it out in my Etsy store
Bye for now!

Early Morning Kitty Playtime

Just a little early morning workout for Smoke.
It combines his two favorite things:
hiding under a sheet and
 chasing a string!

When I see him like this
I just want to hug and kiss him!

Bye for now!

Thrift Store Finds

It was a great day at the thrift!
At the top left of the pic is a floral sheet I found
for my girls bed, for only $2!
Also, red and white gingham fabric,
embroidery hoops, vintage craft books,
and a vintage bag.

I just can't get enough vintage craft books!
I especially love the mushroom towel holder!

And check out those go go boots below!

This nifty bag had a few little marks on it
as you can see.
But I've already cleaned it up 
and they all disappeared, yay!

Bye for now!

Another Pretty Posh Posie

I have been working on more monochromatic colors
for my pins, 
and this is one I've done in springy green shades
with a touch of yellow.

It looks great with pastel colors.

But it also shines with brights and deep colors too!
 See it at my Esty shop!

Bye for now!

Hand loomed puple and green flowers
layered with hand cut felt that has been

Try it on the collar of a blouse.
 Or at the top of a scarf.

Thrifty Finds

 Not too much to find at thrift,
but I found a few good things.
I was excited to find these navy sandals
that are like new, never worn.
And this neat little pamphlet with crochet patterns.

Sketches of the Week

Still in a Christmas and winter mood with my art, and still working on my technique with gouache. It's a much trickier medium than I ...
