Doily Factory Archaeologist

  'Things Currently Not Growing in the Garden'

 My resolution to use as much as possible of my bursting-at-the-seams vintage fabric stash has turned me into a doily factory archaeologist. I've been digging down through the layers in order to perform a fabric cabinet excavation and so far lots of long forgotten 'good stuff' is coming to the surface.

 'Shouldn't I Be In Hawaii Right Now?'

 And it's sunny today. Unrelated to the fabric dig but always worth mentioning when 'wintering' in the Pacific NW. My much anticipated thrifting adventure in Portland OR last week didn't happen because that day was the opposite of sunny. Sleet and freezing rain forced me to head back home without stepping over the threshold of even one thrift store. *sigh*

'Let's Pretend It's Not Winter'

  Tomorrow, some of the results of my de-stash resolution will be available in my etsy shop at 10 am PST. Rain or shine. If you're in the area, I hope you'll stop by.

  7. Amy,
    I thought of you when the sun came out on Thursday. It almost -- almost -- felt like spring. I love your pillows. Speaking of fruit not available here yet, -- I'm already dreaming of our cherry season. I went cherry picking up the hill from my place for the first time last summer and it was the best fun I've had in ages for 50 cents a pound!!!

  8. Love the new shop items! Absolutely beautiful.

  9. Again with the outdoor photos! They (the pillows and the photos) are just lovely.

  10. Your vintage pillows are gorgeous!!!! Love them!

  11. Oh these are gorgeous. Adore! Kim
