vintage plastic flowers

 Hello and a happy day to you!
Hope that you are having a lovely week so far! Last week I ventured out to some thrift stores and came across this bag full of vintage plastic flowers. I was quite excited to get home and find all these pretties inside! There are pink roses, daises, daffodils, gorgeous teal flowers, and more!I should try to figure out what the names of them are! ;)
 I never thought that plastic flowers could bring such a smile to my face, but these sure did! They are so pretty and are now sprinkled throughout my house bringing some spring cheeriness inside!
 This cute couple also came home with me! Aren't they cute!
 And, these darling skunk decal frames! They have a red corduroy as the background and I want to replace it with a pretty floral print, so I will have to show you once I get finished making them over! It would even be cute to paint the frame, but that might have to wait. ;)
I am still working away on some spring items that will be heading to the shoppe next week! 

Thank you for all your sweet comments on my quilt! Wishing you a most lovely day and weekend! xo

it's spring

 Happy Spring!
The weather has been so beautiful lately and it feels so wonderful to finally be springtime! I hope that you are enjoying some lovely spring weather, too! Thank you all so much on your sweet comments on my last post!
 I was so excited this week to get my sampler quilt back from the sweetest Donna who beautifully quilted it for me!! She really did such a gorgeous job!
 I just love looking at the pretty design she did and love how it looks with the fabrics.
 I chose to use a vintage floral sheet I picked up recently at the thrift store for the backing, and it so lovely with the quilting design.
 Today I sewed on the binding and I just need to hand stitch it to the back. Then, it will be ready to bring a some prettiness to my home and perfect for spring! Thank you so much Donna for doing such a awesome job and making this quilt extra special for me to have!! And, you can find out more about Donna's quilting services here
I also got these sweet fabrics from Donna's fabric shoppe, which you can find here!! Looking forward to having some fun with these!!

Wishing you a beautiful and creative spring week! xo

the letter "h"

 Happy Friday!
I am not really sure where this week went, but it definitely has been a busy one. My apologies if I haven't been by to visit, I am a little behind with working on a custom orders and new pretties for the shoppe. 
For the Sew Sweet Bee, this month was the lovely Amy of A Quilting Sheep and she had us make our initial, which was fun to make! I hope Amy likes my letter "h"! ;)
 And, I even had to make myself one just because it was so cute and I love green and aqua together. Not sure what I will do with it, but for now it will just hang in my sewing room. Next month is my turn!
 I am working on a few pretty spring crocheted hangers for the shoppe. This is one that I just finished and there will be an aqua and pink one to follow. 
I will be re-listing my spring crocheted eggs at the end of the month when my shoppe reopens!
 They add such a sweet touch around the home for springtime!
 Some happy mail has been arriving this week including these darling vintage transfers and
 these gorgeous fabrics from the lovely Shay of Simply Sweet Fabric!! Looking forward to creating with these pretties!
I squeezed in a little time and made myself some new spring coasters! Love all these pretty floral prints together! I will be listing some sets in the shoppe soon, too!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and I hope that you are enjoying some springlike weather!

signs of springtime

 Hello and a happy day to you!
This week seems to be just flying and I have been so busy with some custom orders and working on some other projects, which is why I have been a little quiet in visiting with you and posting here. 
I was able to sneak some time and finished another sweet hexie. I have only one more to go! 
      I have been stitching some Easter and spring cuties that will be headed to the shoppe towards the end of the month, just in time for spring. It is nice having Easter at the end of April this year. 
I got some pretty strawberry tablecloths to create with for my new line of strawberry goodies coming in April. There is just something about strawberries that I can resist! 
Some happy and sweet mail came from the lovely Kim of Musings from Kim K. this week! She sent me a pretty vintage red tray to add to my wall collection and the cutest Easter basket! 

 She is so talented and creative!! I just love this, especially that adorable bunny, and it is my first start to my Easter decorating! Thank you so much Kim!
 A darling vintage The Fuzzy Duckling book to add to my spring decorations. Isn't he so cute!
 There are definitely signs of spring in the air and my home. How about yours? 

Well, I hope that you have a wonderful and creative week and weekend! Thank you for stopping by and visiting it always brightens up my day! xo
