A nice little respite is coming this week in SC--weather in the 60's. I'll just be happy with bright sun to warm my face. I believe its time to retire my Uggs to the back of the closet (I admit this little splurge this year was well WORTH the money). This has been the longest and coldest winter here in over 10 yrs. I'd go home from work and slip them on--just heaven. My office will not get over 62degrees and I can't have a heater or the dumb building blows a fuse (let's just say I found out the hard way--still not living down that one at the office when it went dark). geez..so I justified not having frostbite at home :)
Little one has been 'helping' me in 'our' room (craft). I had this gorgeous vintage girl image for years--not sure what to do with it; then one day a few weeks ago all the pieces fell in place. It's actually a folder to store sweet papers in! I absolutely LOVE the velvet hood with fur trim and the sweet face. I utilized doilies, seam binding and vintage button as closure. I have another sweet vintage girl image to make another folder soon.
This 'Snowman' day hanging is made out a vintage children image that I added some sparkle and glaze to showcase the snow and accessories. Vintage bingo board for the backing.
I tend to be drawn to the vintage images of children and women from yesteryear. Innocence, romance, and beautiful fabrics, trims, and wonderful teas!
I really do plan to upload some items to my little bare Etsy shop soon.
Accomplished this weekend:
some spring cleaning
5 loads of laundry

Lots of time with Little One :)

I still hand calculate and mail them in though (I know!)
Happy Sunday night--off to warm my coffee :)
