I was looking for a rosary pouch for my daughter to put her rosary from her Grandma. This came and is padded, has sweet details and is exactly what we were looking for. I will be keeping an eye out for when there are more available.
Thank you, Suzanne, for your review and five stars. Make sure you favorite my shop so you can receive a notification when I have more available.

Oh sooo pretty. Well made. I like the metal snap so much stronger than plastic. Thank you 😊

Exactly as describe. I love the Lacey accents, and the floral fabric, different on two sides. It fits my small four cup pot just perfectly. I can suggest a water resistant liner would help just on the bottom piece to protect from condensation or minor spills.
Thank you for the wonderful review and the great suggestion! It is doable.

Shop Owner determined to keep vintage linens out of the landfills.
In our recent times of COVID, many have looked back on their lives. Some have wonderful memories of sewing with Grandma or baking with Auntie. And so it is with my shop.
Started from a desire to appreciate the time and effort gone into creating embroidered linens from the past, and at the same time, keep them out of the landfills, I have done my best to open a box of memories. I do this by refashioning them into modern and functional items such as cell phone pouches, clothespin bags and even bonnet and dress sets.
Many of my customers have remarked that they once worked embroidery on something I have in my shop, and this opens an avenue of communication. It's my mission to bring back nostalgia, because heaven knows, sometimes it's nostalgia that gets us through. Like a warm soft blanket, vintage embroidery bears memories of simpler times.
All my items are handmade by me in my small attic sized room. Nothing is ever outsourced nor mass produced; I don't even have production partners. It is this integrity and pride I bring to my shop and customers and I hope you will be pleased with the results. Make those memories happen!

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging
I am very happy to gift wrap your purchase and forward it on to the receiver for the same shipping class as originally paid. For enhanced security, I will include a packing slip, but it will not show the amount of purchase. This is to ensure that the item, should it be separated from the package, safely reaches its destination. If you would like a note added, please let me know in the "Note to Seller" box
Custom and personalized orders
I'm happy to take your custom or personalized order as a lot of my business is that feature. I don't accept returns on custom or personalized items unless the item is flawed or damaged upon arrival. Many of my custom orders are completed within a week of the request, and sometimes within the processing time allowed.
How are your linens handled?
All of my linens and fabrics are washed in natural well water, with organic laundry detergent, fabric softener and/or laundry starch. They are line dried in the sun, weather permitting, or line dried indoors, or on gentle cycle in the dryer. Pressed with steam from natural well water, or organic laundry sizing, when needed. Then they are designed and created into the product you see in a one person, smoke free and pet free studio.
Shipping on Returns and Exchanges
With any return or exchange, you’ll be responsible for covering shipping expenses unless the product has a defect or flaw at which point I will pay return shipping, at same cost that it was sent. Please see my return policies for more information.
Do you use recycled packaging materials?
I'm an eco-friendly shop and take great care in the packaging of your items to ensure a safe delivery for you. I often use a recycled box or mailing envelope to cut down on waste and to pass the savings on to you. All purchases are placed in clean protective plastic bags. I won't send you something that I wouldn't want to receive.
I'm new to Etsy. How do I pay for my purchase?
Etsy is a wonderful marketplace, full of many handmade sellers like myself. And I'm happy that you've chosen to buy from my shop. Here is a helpful link for you. https://www.etsy.com/help/article/339
How do I use a coupon code?
Here is a helpful link, and if you have problems, feel free to contact me.
Do you offer layaway?
Layaway on Etsy is called "Reserved". While I'm happy to assist you, I believe in fairness for all my customers and equally give them the opportunity to purchase. I'm happy to place any item on Reserve for a maximum of 48 hours, unless otherwise agreed upon
Can I contact you about a problem?
Yes! By all means! I encourage customer feedback as I don't have a variety of "testers" and won't know how something works for you. Any input you can provide me with will be received in a positive way. My job is to make you, the customer, happy with your purchase.
