A New Love~Driftwood Sailboats!!

OK, this is just too much fun!
I haven't had time like this to create in
like forever, it seems!!

And these charming driftwood sailboats 
are my new obsession!

What do you think?

I'm thinking I might actually make
some for me to keep!!

When I sit down to create, I have a few
raw materials, and a design in my mind, but I don't know until I'm finished how it will turn out and that is just the best!!  Sometimes I am bummed, and have to start over, but not very often.

I used the wonderful 80-120 yo hand loomed 
Euro linen for the sail, and the white patch is vintage French linen.  Both are absolutely my favorite textiles to work with!!

I have the feeling that I will be designing
lots more of these!!!  I see big ones with 
more bling, lace, ticking sails, sets, etc!!

My hubby actually recommended the 
grommets, and I love how they look!
He's good like that!

There will be 5 of these
sweet flower tags in the shop soon!

 The Euro linen is so versatile!

 Well, back to my workbench!
Hope you are really enjoying
your day!  

Hugs and Joy to You!

Oh Spring!

Hello Friends!

How are you?
I am totally enjoying the beautiful 
colors of Spring!

This hibiscus just whispered to me
that it needed to be photographed,
and I agreed!


Love the natural bokeh effect from the sprinklers! We just had all new sod 
put down.  Photos will follow when
we freshen the landscape!

I am working on creating for the shop again, too!

Made this very imperfect birdy
sachet last night.  I am really
growing to love handmade things that
show a little imperfection!

I hope your day and weekend are fabulous!
I will be working on stocking the shop with
fresh picked vintage and handmade pretties!!

Spread some lovin' with that beautiful smile
of yours!!
