sunday stash/mimi kirchner

Sunday Stash this week includes some more buttons (hearts and flowers). I bought these in ny this summer. Love the whites!!
Also posting about a giveaway from mimi kirchner. Her blog is so wonderful and inspiring. It speaks to the little girls in all of us, loving our dolls. I can remember that when I kissed my dolls good night, I had to kiss them all. Sometimes that would take quite a while. Have fun checking out mimi's dolls. I would kiss them all!

Pink saturday

For Pink Saturday this week I'm showing pictures of this fabulous scrapbook shop I went to in Houston. It was so big and everything was decorated so beautifully!!
This is a view of the workroom in the back where scrappers get to play.
I had to take another picture to show the darling awning with pink fringe.
The rainbow of ribbons!!
Just a little shot of pink!
I had so much fun here-not only was it gorgeous but the staff was so sweet and friendly-Texas style!! If y'all have a chance and don't even scrap, just drop in to see it!! Happy pink week!

Pink saturday

Just a little touch of pink! Hope y'all are all doing okay-it's been awhile it seems that I've posted for pink saturday. I made this little purse to put my phone in and a few dollars or debit card. That way I can quickly run in the store or even clip it on the store basket or larger purse.
It also clips on my bike which is a really good thing in case I need the phone while I'm out riding. The outside is made of felted wool and I lined it with a fun print. If you look closely, you'll see that I quilted it with pink thread!
Another project I finished this week is not at all pink. It's a pillowcase style dress appliqued with the letters for our high school football team. The little girl that'll wear this has a dad who's a coach. The little green balls on the letters are like pompoms!
Hope y'all have a great week ahead and looking forward to visiting as many of you as I can!! Happy Pink!

sunday stash and a Halloween preview

I found the cutest Halloween fabric at Hobby Lobby. Such adorable witches and companions. I need to make some dresses with these! I only bought two yards so I really should go back before they sell it all and buy some more.
These are a few more things I bought in New York at the flea market. Probably will make some brooches with them and other jewelry.
It's really hard to take a picture of black fabric. I want to embroidery on this linen and the ribbon is velvet. Isn't it gorgeous?
Finally, some black cats for Halloween decorations or atcs. I love Halloween-such fun ideas to play with and share.
Hope y'all enjoyed the preview for October and have a wonderful weekend!! Going visit Georgia this afternoon to entertain her while her mom has a open house for potential buyers! Wish her luck! Thanks!!
