My very first blogging award! I'm so excited! It's so nice to know that I am making people in blogland smile. Thanks so much Michelle! Now I have to give this award to 10 people whose blogs make me smile. And they are:
Joy at A Day in the Life
Becky at Sweet Cottage Dreams
Polly at Counting Your Blessings
Priscilla the Flea Market Queen
Colleen at Fresh Vintage
Cindy the Queen of Tarte
Heather at Pretty Petals Boutique
Dede at Dream Create Share
Claudia at Paris Apartment
Holly at Holly Doodle Designs
Lalee at Lallee's Cottage
Okay, I can count and I know that is eleven. I could have done more as there are so many wonderful blogs that make me smile on a regular basis. If you get the chance and you haven't already, please visit these lovely ladies and you will see what I mean.
Now, for those of you that have been given this award, you need to pick 10 blogs that make you smile. I know not everyone will and that's okay, no pressure! Ha ha And since I never like to post a blog without pictures and because some of you asked, here are some pictures of what's inside some of the boxes in my sewing room which I featured in my last (and the longest in the history of blogs) post.
Vintage rick rack and seam binding
Barkcloth and vintage roses fabric scraps. Time to make another quilt I guess.
Inside is my collection of vintage glass buttons.
Some of my Victorian valentines.
Vintage hanky collection.
Do you think I have enough old calling cards?
And finally, box of vintage ephemera for collage projects.
My dilemma, and maybe some of you will share this, is I have a hard time using my "best stuff" in projects. I worry that I will never have or be able to find that item again. Joy has been telling me lately to just go ahead and use my stuff, more will come my way. I really need to start doing that.
