little wristlets

This weekend I have been making these little guys.  I wanted to make something new for the shop and the local shops I'm in, so I thought these would be cute to sell.
I have been having fun picking out the color combinations. I really liked how this yellow turned out.  I made a corsage with a vintage button for the center.  

This pink one has the black and white gingham inside and on the wristlet part. 
And this blue one was my first try, which turned out pretty good :) I found this beautiful fabric at a re-sell store, I just love it!
If your interested you can find some of them here.  :)

pretty finds...

i found some pretties last week at sales.  When ever I see any kind of lace at a sale, I go in and sweep it up!  I have a ever growing collection of vintage laces, I just love the intricate workings.
I also found some pretty pink floral corsage and loads of pearls. I am hoping to collect enough of them to fill a glass canister. How pretty would that be? 
how pretty...

spending some time decorating...

I finally spent some time re-decorating my home today.  I feel like I have no time to work on my house because of other things going on.  So I spent the day at some sales and fixing up the house....

I added one of my favorites... Little Women novel. I remembering watching the movie for the first time years and years ago, and I still love it today. Such a good story!
I've been wanting to neutralize the hutch for some time now.  So I gathered a bunch of whites, creams, and ivory. I wanted it simple looking.  

Loads of vintage buttons, faux birds nests, glass, lace, and mother of pearl napkins rings, among other things make up my hutch... have fun looking..... happy friday!!!:)

This past weekend I made some journals. I had some really pretty paper and ribbon that I thought would be fun looking for jounals.

I don't know why this one photo is going the wrong way... I loved all the prints together on this green journal. And I LOVE polka dots also!
A nice blue- aqua one...
More polka dots again....
This one my Mom made for the shop. Just love the little "forget me not" charm on the binding.
This paper is one of my all time favorites. Love the pink and black together. 
And the last one is this garden journal.

Some of them will be in my etsy store and others will be going to elsewhere. :)
