All it takes is a vintage piece of embroidery, a hoop and violà, you have a wonderful place to hang your pins...I made these little brooches and call them my "badges of honor". I hope your weekend is filled with some crafty goodness as well as some thrifted finds and a garage sale or two❤
Having lunch with my friend Koralee of Bluebirdnotes is always such a joy...We both collect pyrex, both of us love pink and turquoise. She gave me those two wonderful pyrex mugs to add to my collection...Thank you my sweet friend. Check out Koralee's blog, she is having a give away for her marvelous "Ice Cream" book❤
Our hydrangeas have been blooming for the past couple of weeks, this year they have such big blooms, the stems can hardly support them..even conditioned, they only seem to last a day or two....to me they are one of the most beautiful flowers I have in our garden.❤
A trip to a few wineries, sip, savor and enjoy the beautiful Okanagan Valley. Having our dear friend Frosso and her husband Robert here to tour around for the day..what a pleasure it was to have them here over night, just not long enough..
Two new bunnies made, "Clara" is for Christa..her body is made from soft light gray felt, her little dress is from a vintage embroidered table runner that Cindy gifted me..Her bloomers are a pair of cotton gloves, trimmed with crochet. "Harriett" is gifted to Shannon, dressed in darker gray felt and a light summer cotton dress..they were such fun to make..I know I will have to cut a few more..
I went out early the other morning to pick some cherries, moved the big ladder around until I found the perfect tree..perched about 10 feet up, the cherries were as ripe and plump as could be. It took no time at all for me to pick 5 lbs..It was a bit funny to try to take a photo, hold on to the basket, not fall off the ladder and smile at the same time..hope it makes you smile as well.
