No matter how I toss back and forth with color I always lean towards Cream & Sugar.
The pictures are from past designs. That rosebud fabric was a favorite print and I made aprons as well as the coin purses. Hand sewn, and always dear to my heart, each stitch in time.
I spent the afternoon running errands and setting up a new music system at the shop. I'm probably a lone ranger in the way I prefer to play my music. Nowadays, Bluetooth, etc. I however prefer the old fashioned cd method. I dismantled our old cd player and tuner from home and took it to the shop. The little cd player holds up to five cd's at a time, and you can shuffle them so that one doesn't play at a time, but you get a sample of each cd. I really enjoy researching and choosing new cd's. I'm almost giddy to have a new collection to play on my what is probably called vintage cd and tuner.
Sometimes, it's the good old things that bring me joy.
A few years ago I made, well half made embellished canvas bags. I kind of like it when you get a helping hand and jump start on a creation. Semi handmade? At any rate, almost instant gratification.
My stash of Vintage Cream and Sugar attire. Demographically, and generally speaking, a hard sell at the apothecary shop. I don't understand why? I love wearing vintage whites! I have two long vintage layered slips that I love to wear in the summer with short boots.
Linen Cuffs, were a favorite design too. A thrill to be on the hunt for vintage baubles. The old fashioned rhinestone pins were easy to find, and usually affordable. They were the perfect topping, I always thought.
I have a few painted pieces I'm dying to transform. While searching I found this blog that seems to detail the paint technique I like. Not to mention, I'm obsessed with Chip and Joanna lately. Such wonderful humans. I admire and respect their lifestyle and beliefs.
Back to the food...
We made this for dinner. Yummy! I dropped by that favorite grocery store I mentioned last post and picked out a large bunch of organic broccoli. Actually, there wasn't any broccoli, but I asked the produce stocker if there was some, and he went in the back room and filled the bin with fresh florets. Yet another reason I love that grocery store.
Spring, Spring are you coming back? I sure hope so! I really miss you.
Home projects churning around and I can't wait to plant herbs and flowers.
Happy thoughts, always.
