Vintage shirts & Airplanes!

So I bet you are wondering what vintage shirts and airplanes have to do with each other! Well nothing really?? Hehe! I have been putting appliques on some vintage shirts and sweaters to use up some beautiful vintage fabric flowers that I have. Here is a sample of one that is at the shop! Priced at $15.00! They are all prewashed and dried ready to wear! I have sooo many cute others as well.. if only my batteries would stay charged!

It is also EAA in Oshkosh.. Airplanes everywhere and people from all over the world come to visit lil' old Oshkosh! It is pretty neat to see an air show pretty much over my head any day of the week all week long! Here are a few pics we took from the roof of our garage!

Gallery walk is Saturday.. stay tuned I will be talking up my featured artist Stefani Lin.. The one & only Artsy Momma! :)

Get ready for something REALLY cute ????

Oh my gosh! I have had this idea stuck in my head for soooo long! I finally stayed up last night and finished a few.... cotton fabric belts (that have pretty ribbon ties in the back) with (handmade by me)polyester bows handsewn and all! I looove the way they turned out and even more I looove the way they look with my camp skirts! There will be more of these soon!

In my garden....

Well not really but throughout my yard you can find all these beautiful flowers! I am a little dissapointed though.. something got into my early spring flowers and my columbine did noy bloom nor did my violets in front of the house! :( I think something may have dug them up! Anyhow.. We have lived in our house almost 3 years and each year I have added a little something to the yard and gardens that were started by the previous tenants! I have added several daisies of course and the beautuful cone flowers! The problem is we have a pretty shaded property so alot of these flowers fo bloom but take a little longer cause they are not in full sun!

I also had to share a sweet pic of some little bird feet... I was painting Jada's dresser yesterday and when I came back outside to see if the paint was dry, I saw a little imprint of birdy feet! A little bird must of landed on the wet paint! ;)

The kids and I are off on a little adventure today... Happy Monday!

No Market for me.....

tomorrow! The rain chances are freaking me out.. I don't want to wash skirts that are already clean & I am feeling a bit under the weather.. I think mostly burnt out! I will be at the shop for a bit in the morning. I am thinking about 9:00 am to ???

I hope you have a great weekend & I hope that the rain holds off for everyone including my market friends!

Monday ALREADY!!!

I can hardly believe it is Monday already! Last week went by sooo fast & the weekend snuck up on me! I didn't get a chance to blog much or update my website.. sorry about that!

Here is a few new things I have been working on.. for babies! I have done the onesies in the past (always for the Appleton market).. and I was inspired to make some vintage looking (reversable) bibs! They came out soo cute! Many of the onesies even match! They would make a great gift! The set is under $15.00 .. I also have many hair clips that match as well for Mom of course!

I took a few new pics of the shop as well.. I will share those tomorrow! Happy Monday everyone! :)

My creative space....

I had a sudden urge to clean and organize my sewing room! It is where all the magic happens! :) I had a few book shelves from the shop that when I moved didn't fit & I have an amazing collection of Black Apple prints that needed to be hung as well as my ne AshleyG porcelain! I love this room.. it is an eclectic mix of me, right down to my wonderwoman costume I wore when I was 4! I also added a little chalkboard paint behind a vinatge frame (with no glass)I love the way it turned out! I have been feeling sooo creative latley and inspired... not sure but it might be all the positive energy from the new shop!

I love antiquing....

I don't know if it is the economy or what(I hate it when people say that..), but the last few times I have went out to the antique mall I came home with some majorly cute stuff and the prices were GREAT! I went looking for a lamp for the shop.. not only did I find a vintage lamp, it was only $10.00 & had been rewired! :) I also found 4 like new vintage aprons.. one with the tags on it from the 50's, a cute set of retro butterfly s&p shakers, and the cutest clear bracelet with silver glitter in it! Love it! A good day for sure!

They have a flea market once in awhile and the last time Lesley and I went I only spent $20.00 and came home with a ton of stuff! There is one this Sunday..I can't wait! :)

I was up very late last night sewing, trying to restock from the weekend! I made some super cute skirts!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I had the shop open for Gallery Walk( Thank you everyone who came out!) and last but not least did some sparklers and saw the fireworks (forgot my camera)on Lake Winnebago! What an amazing week.. I am a little burnt out.. sold out of most skirts and will be spending the next two days sewing and making new things and getting a package ready for Anthology!

I hope you all had just an amazing 4th! We did! Happy Monday! :)

Wow! Yesterday was soooo much fun & so busy! The kids were running around the park getting autographs from all the extras! The music at Live at lunch was AWESOME(all 30's songs) a beautiful singer singing beautiful songs! There were soooo many people out. The stayed open until 4:30! All in all very exhausting but sooo much fun! At the end I even walked to the shops with the kids so they could get their own trading cards!
