pink sweetness

Happy Friday!
Where did this week go? Well, I hope it has been a great one for you!
I have been keeping my hands very busy this week, and even did a little thrift store shopping yesterday. I came home with some sweet treasures that I will show you on Monday.
The front of the pink rose pot holder is finished, and I am working on the back. I might try some scallops as the edging for this one. I do love that sweet pink and bright green together! 
Some pretty vintage tea towels are waiting to get their crocheted edges and dresden flowers, and will be making their way into my shoppe next week to bring some sweetness to those wintry days! And, just in time to bring a little Valentine touch to your kitchen!
A new year means some new business tags for orders in my shoppe. A sweet way to use those lovely scraps!
The felt heart ornaments are almost done. I have some smaller ones that I have hanging from branches in an enameled vase, that these will be added to.  
 I finished cross-stitching roses on these crocheted hearts. I love how the rose came out on the pink and white one better, but the red is still pretty. I followed a pattern from a vintage table runner that I have with roses, and really adore how cross-stitching looks on crochet.
Now I will add a little vintage lace to the back and hang these on my vintage coat rack. What sweetness are you working on? Well, I am off to create away and enjoy the beautiful, sunny weather today!

Wishing you all a most lovely and crafty weekend, and hope the sun is shining where you are!!

  5. You've been busy Heather! I love your tags, so cute and another reason why I must buy something from your shop soon! I always seen to think of that exactly when my cash has run out - how annoying. Anyway, I adore your cross stitched crochet hearts too, they're perfect.

  8. Hi Heather,
    We've had snow today and it was too cold to sit in my sewing room so reading in front of the fire (and pinteresting) for me. Love all your beautiful makes and especially in awe of the pot holder. Pink and green is just the best combination.
