Forty Four years ago, I was in the 7th grade, my mother and her 3 sisters started a tradition that would hold strong up to today. Once a year they would meet somewhere for lunch with their daughters. It grew to more daughters and daughters in laws to granddaughters, to great granddaughters. We have the best time ever. This year we met in Orem at the Carrabba Grill.
Oh -- I had to sneek a picture of Kacie Joe and Mia modeling their new girly dress and skirt.
Ever since we moved into this house I just haven't found a good spot for these two wing chairs. I'd like to sale them for $135,00 each. They have hardly been sat in. They are of medium built, a cream on cream nylon material with mahogany feet.
If you are interested let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org or (801) 553-9145
Maybe you've noticed that I have a special place in my heart for all children around the world. I love their pure innocence and softness. As I was trying to figure out what I want to share this White Wednesday I received an e-mail from a cousin that I love. I got an IDEA!
WHITE BABIES - I WOULD FEEL THE SAME IF THEY WERE BROWN OR BLACK, BUT I AM UNABLE TO PUT THEIR SWEET PICTURES ON THE COMPUTER. SO, WHITE BABIES IT IS - AREN'T THEY DARLING?
Kacie's girly skirt and Mia's girly jumper are finished. Kacie was holding her skirt for the picture and the fan was wearing Mias.
I think I'm beginning to like my sewing room the best! I was so inspired by Karen Valentine's party of cozy places, I decided to really make my sewing room fun and functional. Today I built my second little shelf and filled it with more milk glass. Each milk glass piece holds some special things that I use.
I have been admiring all of your dress forms and today I found a little black one to sit on my shelf. Of corse I had to make her a skirt and a scarf and a necklace and a shoulder pin. Whoops, she doesn't have a blouse on. I want to be able to see her black form so she'll have to be ok with that.
I have had so much fun, this week-end, in my work-room. I had a few elements hanging around and this is what they turned into. ELEMENTS HANGING AROUND: Cream and Tan material (Material Girls) - Lace (Fabric Center) - Castle Graphics (thegraphicsfairy) - and of course, 40 year old leather wrapped buttons (bought when I lived on Wilson Lane).
The lighting is awful, I'll take another picture tomorrow.
What a fun evening. My son and his family came to dinner the other evening. I don't get to see my youngest grand baby(no.8) very often - he's 7 month's old now.
I fryed up some new potatoes, cooked some new corn on the cob, and fryed fresh ground beef patties. Hillary brought a crock pot full of barbequed pork, along with home-made rolls, and she dipped and fryed new green tomatoes. Yum Yum! Then we didn't have room for a new seedless watermelon.
I have wanted to get myself over to this darling shop on Redwood Road in South Jordan, so today was going to be the day. I got in my white car and headed up the street. I took my camera with me because I was hoping she wouldn't mind if I took some pictures. When I told her about White Wednesday and I wanted her to be my blog of the week, she said, Oh, of course. The stores name is LAVENDER HOUSE. It's a darling old house full of refinished furniture, and everything you would need in a cozy comfy home. There were cute tables, cupboards, cabinets, shelves, chairs, suit cases, lots of white dishes, Crystal, white linen, bottles, pillows galore - a big long white chenille one, baskets, picture frames, mirrors, oh my gosh, there is sooo much. There is a pink room, everything is pink. A blue corner where everything is blue. There was a beautiful white bowl hanging from a lovely wide ribbon that I loved. A little bird caught my heart, I almost bought him, he looked like he was carved out of wood. Then of course, a welcome sign.
Now is a great time to go in. They are having a 40% off sale. Only please don't buy that old metal outdoor chair. I want it!
You didn't think that after looking at all of her treasures I would only find one (metal chair) that had my name on it did you. NOPE your right, I found 2 more things a beautiful- white-milk glass-square-dish with a lid. I've filled it with special buttons. The darling shop owner is holding my other find. A pair of shutters, I am going to paint them and use them in my sewing/blogging room. Ya know, I didn't even ask her what her name was but she is go cute, I'll just call her LAVENDER HOUSE.
Well, it was a great morning and I had great fun checking out this shop. Have a white day.
I don't know about you, but I am having so much fun with all this blogging stuff. Every one of you inspire me and motivate me. I can't seem to quit sewing. These are my latest. Thank you for letting me show and tell.
Material is from Material Girls - Vintage Lace, Vintage Ribbon and Vintage Tatting is from "Just a Bed of Roses" - Vintage buttons and charm I've been saving for 40 years for a special pillow - hand crocheted doilies by my mother.
