Just a really quick little post to show you my 2 new Christmas trees that I purchased this year. A sweet perfectly pink flocked 4 1/2 ft tree, and a Vintage white 6 foot tree. I've decided to decorate very simply this year, and only using mostly vintage items (except for the lights!)
I finally purchased a Rachel Ashwell Couture Blush pink petticoat Euro Sham! I've been wanting one for soo long, and I finally have one :) Also made myself a couple of pink rose crowns.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello everyone, yes, I am still here. As I mentioned in my previous post, I now take care of my 2 year old, and now 4 month old Grandson's for our daughter while she works 4 days at the Preschool. They do keep me pretty busy, but I am loving spending the time with them. And the other 3 days I am spending time working away in my little sewing room creating new Holdiay Stockings and pillows for listing on Ebay. I have so much fun creating my Stockings, and it helps to use up the smaller pieces of fabric and laces that don't quite work on pillows.
The photo below is of a couple of great finds that I purchased on Ebay. First, and the one thing I have been wanting to get for a looong time, is Rachel Ashwell's Couture Pink Petticoat pillow. Love the soft blush pink color, and the layers of ruffles and lace. The other, a Euro sham, though not made by Rachel Ashwell, but created with her beautiful Primrose fabric
Thought I would share with you some of the new Holiday stockings and pillows that I've created so far and listed on Ebay. The ones that are still available are the last stocking and the 2 pillows. I've also listed and sold 3 of the 4 Stockings that I made for myself last year. If you'd like to see what's available for purchase, just click on the link near the top on my sidebar.
Thanks so much for coming by. I'll try not to take quite so long to do a new post, as I have with this one. So much to do, and never enough time to get it all done, lol.
Until next time !!

So sorry it's been such a long time between posts, I've been busy as of late. 4 days out of the week I watch my 2 year old and 2 month old grandson's for our daughter, as she is now the 2nd Aide at the Preschool, so they keep me pretty busy. So, just popping in really quick to say "HI", and to show you a couple of things that I have managed to create and list on Ebay.
First up are these 2 sweet Christmas Stockings....I know, Halloween is the holiday coming up first, but I just love making these, and wanted to get a head start this year, since my time is very limited to do any sewing.
I also managed to create another cottage pillow using this beautiful Vintage Waverly fabric, with a gorgeous rose bouquet on the perfect Robin's Egg blue background!
And lastly, here is a photo of our youngest son, Austin, wearing his Football Uniform for the Oakland University Football Club. Oakland had never had a Football team EVER in it's history, until finally this year, and Austin is a member of this team. We're going over to the east side of the state (Michigan) this Saturday to watch him and his fellow teammates play their first Home game. Can't wait to see him!! We live on the West side of Michigan, and it's a 3 hour drive to get there!
1 more photo, this is our 2 grandson's, taken a few weeks ago. I'll try to post a newer picture of the 2 of them soon for you to see.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me ~ Don't know when I will post again, hopefully not so long as last time.
Until next time sweet friends!!
