quilt blocks and a vintage baby quilt

 A happy sweet day to you!
Hope you had a lovely weekend! I have been working on some custom orders, and planning some new items for my shoppe. I had a little me sewing time yesterday and made my first diamond star! After seeing all the gorgeous ones the lovely Jessie of Messy Jesse has made, I was eager to try my hand at some. My little hexie flowers will have to wait while I make some more stars! I need a little practice with the centers, but happy with how my first one turned out. 
 I made this star block for Jennie of Clover and Violet for her Sew Sweet Bee block. It is such a sweet block and hope she likes it!
 Last week I found this little gem at the thrift store! A vintage baby quilt all hand appliqued and embroidered with sweet fruit kids!
 It has real cotton inside, that is balled in the corners, so maybe one day I can redo it, but I think it just give it charm.
 The pattern, Pee Dee Fruit Orchard kids, is from the 40's and it would be neat to find it so that I could make one, too! A sweet find!
I had some happy mail with these pretty fabrics from sweet Donna and her fabric shoppe, Donna's Lavender Nest! So pretty and I can't wait to play with them! 

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my great grandma's pot holder! I need to get some brown yarn to make one, just like hers!

Wishing you all a beautiful and crafty week!! xo

great grandmother's rose pot holder

Happy sweet day to you!
I wanted to thank you so much for all the love and support for my shoppe re-opening! You blessed me so much! My next shoppe update will be towards the end of June with patriotic and summer pretties!

Along with the treasures I shared last week, my mom also sent me this pretty rose pot holder that my great grandmother crocheted. I love this color combination and might have to make one myself using brown and pink. And, now I know where I get my love for making them! 
 Well, I am off to finish packing some orders and crocheting cherries! Wishing you a beautiful day and week! xo

new items in the shoppe!

 Happy Friday!
I just listed some new sweet items in my shoppe! I think this might be my most favorite shop update, with lots of vintagey strawberry and cherry pretties! :)
There are a few new creations that I have added, which I am excited to share! Introducing my vintagey apron wraps! I wanted to incorporate all the things I do in my shoppe, but make them simple and sweet! 
Along with my apron wraps, I am introducing my vintage inspired dress clothespin bags! They are perfect for those summery days that are just ahead!
And, these are just some of the classic Vintage Grey pretties that I just added!!
There are some more new items including pillow covers, coasters, cherry crocheted hangers, hankies, and more that you can check out in my shoppe!

Wishing you all a beautiful and creative weekend! And, thank you for all your love and support of my little handmade business! xo

some new treasures

 Happy Sweet Day!!
Hope you are having a lovely week so far! The weather has been quite hot, and is going to get even hotter later this week, which I am not loving. How's your weather?
Another beautiful pinwheel arrived from the sweet Missy of Missy's Homemaking Adventures. So pretty and she used two of my favorite prints! Thank you Missy!
 These gorgeous fabrics arrived from the lovely Shay of Simply Sweet Fabric, and I am loving the new Old New 30's from Lecien! Aren't they so pretty!
 She has this sweet bundle set in her shoppe, if you would like to play with one, too!! Thank you Shay for having such sweet fabrics!!
 I found this cute laundry bag at a thrift store recently.
 So cute, and these would be fun to recreate. ;) 
 My mom sent me some more family treasures, and these are some of of the sweet things. The precious doll belonged to my mom that my great grandmother gave her. The baby bottle, Bambi, the glove cleaner, and pretty plate were all my great grandmothers.
 These tea sets and milk glass vase were also my great grandmothers. I look forward to having some tea in those sweet pastel sets! There were some more treasures, but it was too hot to take more photos. ;) I think that family treasures are the best ones to have!
I am finishing up a few more items for the shoppe and will be re-opening this Friday! Thank you for all your sweet comments on my cherries! I love how the pink ones turned out, and will be offering them as this cute set of 4 pairs! 
So, I am off to work away, and will be back Friday with new shoppe goodies!
Wishing you a beautiful and crafty day! xo

sweet cherries

Hope you are having a lovely start to the week! 
I just wanted to pop in and share these cute crocheted cherries that I made for the first time. They will be going on some crocheted hangers for the shoppe, and I am thinking of making some pink ones and offering a "bowl full of cherries" in the shoppe, too. If you want to see what else will be heading into the shoppe next week, you can head over to my Instagram photos on the right side bar and see some sneak peaks.
Wishing you all a beautiful and crafty week sweet friends!! And, thank you for all your lovely comments on my shelf and mini quilt!  xo

happy may

 Happy May!
Hope that you are enjoying some lovely spring weather! It has been a little too warm for me here, summer temps, so I am  hoping it will cool down soon as I am not quite ready for the summer heat. 
It has been a busy week with working on some new pretties for the shoppe and doing a little spring cleaning and redecorating. 
 Since I do not have a garden, the vintage plastic roses are my May flowers. I just wish they had a better smell! ;)
I had this cute little shelf that I have been meaning to hang up, so yesterday I finally did in my kitchen.
 A couple weeks ago I finished my little "H" mini wall quilt using some of my favorite colors together.
I have been busy getting some sweet strawberry and cherry items finished, sorry for the fuzzy photo, my sewing room is not a great place for photos. ;)I am hoping to have them all in the shoppe by the end of next week. So, we'll see how fast my hands can work!

Thank you for your sweet words on my baby things and it was fun to read what you have! Wishing you a beautiful first day of May and have a lovely weekend!! xo
