I wanted to show you some of the lovely things I've found lately. My very first Etsy purchase - in fact the first shop I landed on - was this lovely piece from Contemporary Embroidery: http://www.karenruane.blogspot.com/. I typed in "white-on-white embroidery" and up it popped! My photograph below doesn't do it justice, so I took a few sideways to show the lovely raised stitching.
Next is fabric purchased from Sew Love Fabrics www.sewlovefabrics.etsy.com.
And from Sew Deerly Loved http://www.sewdeerlyloved.etsy.com, more pretty fabric!
Soon to be incorporated into new creations.
Remember that pretty pink package?? It came from Shabby Cats and Roses http://shabbycatsandroses.blogspot.com/.
First, there was chocolate and herb tea, then a pink shaker:
AND . . . this lovely pillow.
I bought it for my sister for Christmas - but I may keep it - it looks lovely on my bed. By now, my credit card is smoking, but what do I see but this beautiful book on Sandy's Shabby Streamside Studio blog. http://myshabbystreamsidestudio.blogspot.com/. It's in German, but it doesn't matter, the photography and the rooms are inspirational. The link is on Sandy's blog.
So, now my credit card is frozen in an ice cube tray where I can't get at it, until it cools down!
