Swooning over spring!

Antique European ticking fabric

Spring is just weeks away, yet it’s not soon enough. We had our first major snow storm with 14 1/2 inches of snow, so we are ready for for warmer days and sunshine. With that said I have been craving French fabrics. Hence, my happy mail.

Angel wings from vintage European grain sack

I have been busy working on angel wings, bunnies and more hearts!

Pocket heart bunnies. They are the cutest little piece of spring, just what I needed.

I will leave you with this warm weather spring pic of our garden last year. This pic just screams spring and warm weather is ahead. So for now I will continue to sew with vinyl fabrics and paint old chippy furniture until it’s warm and sunny!

Peace, love and junk,


Oh February…

It’s February and I have been busy. Here is what I have been up to with creating new hearts.

A heart created with a vintage scapular

My love of old and unusual led me to these vintage catholic relic pieces in an amazing antique shop in Delaware, Ohio. I have had them tucked away waiting for the perfect project.

Time worn vintage assemblage hearts

These vintage tiny pieces are so amazing. The stories they could tell. Now someone can enjoy them all over again in a beautiful way.

Oh my, the detail…

I have used black and white felt, gold embroidery floss and glass beads. Embellished with the vintage pieces. I could create these over and over.

Amazing crochet work on this tiny vintage piece

Sprinkle in a couple of tiny bags made from antique European grain sacks.

I have been busy, doing what I love……creating!

Peace, love & junk,
