Custom pillow for Bride and Groom

The mother of the bride, asked me to do a special pillow for the bride and groom. I hand embroidered the first intial in their names,onto the pillow. The bride's favorite flower is a sunflower. The groom happens to like browns, so that was my inspiration for the pillow.

Treasures from Brimfield flea market

I had to wash these items first, before I could take their picture. They are vintage hankies and some doilies. They are all clean and pressed and ready for a creative venture of my choosing.

Our annual trip to the Brimfield, Mass. flea market

There is always lots to see at the flea market. My husband goes with me and we make a whole day of it. We enjoy it a lot. Here I have taken a picture of a vintage wedding dress and veil. Then while sitting and eating an ice cream cone I noticed these cut little dolls. I just had to have their picture. They made me smile.

New treasures from our Brimfield, Mass trip

I now have new treasures to work with. I love getting new vintage materials. Here is some vintage velvet's and some vintage rayon. There are vintage buttons and a tiny little perfume bottle. I also acquired a bunch of vintage clothes pins. I will clean them up with some Murphy's Oil Soap, then they will make their way into some special crafts.
