KEEPING BUSY

Is it really possible that it is already August 2?! Where has this summer gone? I must be getting old....I don't think I am a summer-loving girl any more. I just do not enjoy the heat. I am looking forward to fall. I enjoy the cooler weather. Today I ordered tickets for the Country Living Fair that is held in Columbus, Ohio at the end of September. Sara and I went last year and loved it! We knew this had to be a yearly trip for us. I will try and remember to take more pictures this year to share.
I am working on setting a date for my November sale. Along with that I am trying to work on a few things. Just wanted to share a few things

a hand - stamped heart full of love...


a spoonful of goodness!


a few shabby pins...






this little tin box slides open !





This is a sweet little pearl choker with a simple silk flower on the side.

This was done using an acid-etch technique...

My first attempt at making a pillowcase dress. Still have some tweaking to do on it.





How cute are these fabrics? I love all the bright colors.....when my daughter was little everything was pastels








"Bebe Burps"...ok. So maybe I am getting carried away. I am not a sewer....but, when I get in the mood I have to go with it. I thought I would sew a few burp cloths for Maryn....So 2 dozen burp cloths later.....but, new babies spit up alot...right?
