I'm so THANKFUL for......

The ups and downs of this amazing last year! My beautiful & healthy family. That I work for myself and love what I do. I am so thankful for sooo much, more than I can possibly list! I really am looking forward to the next few days spending time with family & taking a (small) break before next week.. the craftacular & gallery walk! I have sooo much to do.. but my list is getting smaller! Thank goodness!

I have some exciting news.. dainty daisies accessories are now available at The french flea (Wisconsin Ave.) in downtown Neenah. What a cute, cute shop! They have all sorts of vintage goodness, a coffee bar & lil' goodies to eat! You have to check it out if you are in the area!

I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving!

p.s. The shop is closed Thursday & Friday ( we will reopen Saturday at 9:00 am!)

Pleated purses awaiting vintage buttons...

is what I am working on today! I just finished up this batch and I have quite a few more to sew. These 4 are awaiting their vintage buttons to be hand sewn on. (I will get to that later)

I love this batch.. alot of vintage wools, and corduroy some denim... oh so lovely and winterish! :)

I have some errands to run and off to the dentist.. I have a tooth that is bothering me, not to mention I have to have my wisdom teeth out!!! (at 33 that is CRAZY I tell you.. I am cutting one now so I am hoping that is what is bothering me and not something else!) wish me luck!

P.S. Some of the pleated purses I am working on will go to the shop, some to the craftacular and a few set aside for Anthology! Yay!

Have a good day!

I bought some super fun plaid wool type fabrics that will become some awesome purses and these cute lil' mugs! Jake is gonna kill me.. see he thinks I have a problem with buying dishes! How could I resist. They will be sooo cute with hot chocolate in them! :)
