Vintage Linens and Curtain Panels

Hello all!  We've had to go through the sad process of cleaning out my grandmother's home.  She has Alzheimer's and had to be placed in a nursing facility back in December.  Her home has recently sold and it has been quite emotional going through her things.  I found many vintage linens and lace curtain panels that I know someone will appreciate.  It is not that I don't, just that I already took many items and don't have anymore room!  I've listed them all in my Etsy shop, click here to be taken directly to the shop.  I'm not looking to profit off of these items, just to basically cover the cost of shipping them.  I do hope they will find a good home.  The below photos are a few of the items I've listed.  Please check out my shop for more.  Thank you for looking!  Hope you are all enjoying your summer.

Time to Take a Break

Hello my friends.  I hope you are all enjoying your summer (or winter for my Aussie friends!).  I have decided to take an indefinite break from my blog.  I feel I don't have the time to properly devote to it and it simply isn't what I want it to be.  I haven't done much crafting or creating and when I do, it has been inspired from projects I've seen on others blogs.  In other words, I haven't had that many original ideas or fabulous finds to share.  I have also not been great at taking photos.  Lots of photos of Chelsea but I am not keen to post too many photos of her here.  I am on Facebook and if I'm not already friends with you please request me!  I find that to be a much easier forum to keep up with.  I am still visiting blogs regularly.  I can't imagine life without visiting some of you!

When the time comes that I'm able to have a bit more creative time I will start posting again.  I know that time will come...  Until then, see you all on your blogs...

A Summer Wreath

I have been looking for inspiration for a summer front door wreath and coming up empty.  Then I stumbled across this blog and found the inspiration I needed!  She even has a great tutorial for the rosettes.  My rosettes came out a bit loose but for the first try I'm happy with them.

Jeff even likes this wreath!  In fact, he told me I shouldn't put it on the front door as he is worried that it will fade in the sun.  So for now, it is residing in the living room.  I'm thinking of spraying some clear coat on it and taking a risk with the fading.  I know, I live on the edge.
