Before I blather on about my newest purchases *tee-hee* I'd like to thank those of you who voted on my little music poll! It looks like it's 7 to 3 in favor of adding some tunes! I think I will add a music player but I'll try to choose songs that won't knock you off of your chair when they start :)
As usual, I've been doing some shopping for vintage goodies. I remembered these cute, vintage quilt blocks that I had added to my Etsy favorites but I couldn't find them anywhere... I figured that the listing had expired. I sifted through my memory, trying to recall where I had seen them, and my old brain cells suggested, "BerryLane.etsy.com..." I checked that shop first and didn't see the blocks currently listed or in her sold items. Then I visited BerryLane's sister shop, CottageBubbles.etsy.com, thinking that maybe I found the ballpark but not the right field. Not there either. Hmmm. So I sent a convo to CottageBubbles explaining my search. Sure enough, Wendy told me that they were listed in her BerryLane shop but had expired and she would be happy to relist them ~ yay! I received them yesterday along with a sweet ACEO that I just couldn't resist and some delightful extras that were such a nice surprise :) Thank you so much, Wendy... you're a sweetheart!
I'm not thrilled with the composition of this photo, but I'm excited to share these goodies with you! An adorable ACEO with a reminder to 'hold fast to your dreams' ~ so sweet! A lovely dressform tag with wonderful wallpaper bod ~ *love it* And last, but certainly not least, dee-licious pink grapefruit sea salt spa soap with a juicy, fresh scent and most beautiful pink color! What a fun package to open ~ I just love surprises! Thank you again, Wendy :D
These Dresden Plate quilt blocks are made up of charming, vintage fabrics and sweetly embroidered with black outlines. I really love the way a touch of black pulls together a confetti of fun colors! 'The Plan' is to make some charming pillows for my studio. I have yet to use the new sewing machine that I got for Christmas... nearly a month and 1/2 ago... that's, um, 42 days ago. I don't have a space to set it up right now. I'd have to move some things which would require some cooperation by sweetie, but I'm working on it :) I'm telling you this in hopes of embarrassing myself into getting off my tush and firing that thing up! Seems I've developed quite a talent for procrastinating. In any case, I love these blocks and am enjoying their cuteness, pillows or not.
Aren't they yummy? I'm so tickled that I found these again! :)
