Primrose Lane Spring Show



Once again Janice from Primrose Lane has done a really fun show.  The show was held at three indoor locations in Coburg, Oregon. The weather has been so bad (read - not spring) here that a diversion is welcome. I purchased two great vintage bracelets for Nicole's wedding in July. The jewelry  room was almost overwhelming with so much merchandise.

Dressing in Petticoats


This photo is directly from Magnolia Pearl. She designs very funky, unusual clothing. Ruffles, lace and very feminine.  I thought that these petticoat skirts were wonderful and really lovely.  I really don't know anyone who would be comfortable wearing these things....they are really artwork.  Maybe it is just me wishing for a nice warm spring day....it was sunny and cold yesterday.

New sewing projects, Sandi Henderson patterns



I purchased these two patterns in February. I am ready to make the projects. I have a lot of small fabrics collected to use on the Cupcake Pincushion. I think that these will be something I can complete in an afternoon.  Of course the handbag will take longer. I have "cabin fever" really bad, this rain is lasting forever. Hum...rain and snow since last October...7 months. Ugh. I hope that keeping busy inside my studio will keep me entertained.

Wishing for Tulips


I snapped this photo last spring at a friends home. The bright pink tulips are such a beautiful floral spot for this season.  Soon, I hope to see these lovelies blooming here at home.

Creamy White Vintage Vases


I am watching the snow today, and hope that it doesn't get deep. I am so... wanting some sunny weather. The spring white brings out my collection of vases I want to share.  I like the heavy ceramic vases of yesteryear. McCoy, Shawnee, Heager, and other American potteries.  Why white, well... it was produced in large quantities, and I think that they are very versatile for any time of the year.

Window Shopping is Fabulous





I promised some wonderful photos, and I took these myself.  The eye candy and displays are some of the best I have ever seen. Creativity and putting unexpected items together, like the newspaper dress...wow, I had to show you. What do you like? Hum...just wondering.
