April 2015

April started without me so it seems ~ Like the Pierrot who was the center of pranks the 1st of the month had me jumping over the cracks in the sidewalk and wiping the egg from my face ~*~.
I lost The Theory of Everything movie rented from the red box leaving me with The Theory of Nothing ~ my grocery bill came to 666 and my faithful companion of an Alaskan Husky took off running after a Canadian Goose. And so the chase for April was on.

Today is the 4th and the day of " Passing Over " placed me back on my contemplating self track ! My dog has returned with not a feather in sight and well.... I'm hoping someone returns the DVD after watching it on the house. All in all its all good ~*~ Spring has sprung in the west and I'm thankful for the life I lead.

The gloves I spoke of last month are selling and a new series of vintage fabric bouquet that I make are coming along nicely, the colors are summery and the fabrics used are sheer and lighthearted. I'll list two or three this up coming week.

Thank you always to the brave brides that have chosen to use my fabric bouquets in their happy celebrations. I appreciate playing a small though mighty sentimental part in your journey together. Until May.....
Cheers to good times !

March 2015

We can't ask for better weather here in the Pacific Northwest this first week in March. I'm hoping spring comes on time if not sooner for so many people in the US crippled with such cold weather for so many days. Hopefully the powers that be have let you scroll through Etsy while in safe and warm

I was blessed with a really nice box of gloves this month. I'll be listing them throughout spring. All leather some have beautiful cuts , rhinestones , lattice embroidery in interesting colors like blue and a pair of rich burnt orange. Beautiful for weddings and parties.

Other than that I'm always making vintage fabric bouquets and listing them once a week. Vintage items are added daily and custom orders are always welcome. The turn around this time of year is 3 - 4 weeks. If you need a rush bouquet or two let me know and I'm happy to make room for you. Larger orders 3 - 4 weeks is a good amount of time to get them completed and shipped. Remember shipping abroad can take up to a month for arrival and I've noticed The Netherlands and Italy seem to take up to 6 weeks at times.

Have a fun day !

February 2015

Spring and Summer orders are coming in ~ the themes have a winning formula with carnivals and the circus leading the way ! Creativity is in the air and the vintage fabric gods have been good to me thus far ~ Prints and stripes , sheers , crinolines, lace and wonderfully thick cotton have settled into last years renovated ceder closet ~

I keep one eye open and a buck in my in pocket in case I see a deal and a challenge to breath new life into a surviving piece of something that has its admirer out there. It's what keeps us individualized. The vast land of vintage is a wonderful place and its fun to create " upcycled " art (for me fabric ) as well keep supplies circulating.

I've come across so much creativity in this lifetime I can only imagine the trend will grow into another year of terrific artists here on etsy !

Here is a terrific page showing a few small bouquets made for this rocker bride and groom last year ~

Cheers to the new year ! I hope the world has treated you kindly thus far :)

Walking my dog in the cold with a cup of most excellent coffee got me on my way this morning. Deep in thought, I forgot that I had treats in my pocket and my loyal girl couldn't figure out the New' Year's hoopla when she couldn't get to a simple treat .

I've started listing some pretty things this morning ~ more to come. Finishing orders for special vintage fabric bouquets is wrapping up ~ and a new line of terrific fabrics will start coming out from the ceder woodwork for a new year of vintage fabric bouquet making.

Thanks again to the brave brides placing custom orders this year ~ you truly hold a special place in my h e a r t .

Happy New Year !
