Rise and Shine

I am SOOO not a morning person. Don’t get me wrong, I love mornings. I love the fresh air, the dew on the grass, and early morning sun is so gorgeous.

That becomes a problem when you need to get up early {Read More}

Time Well Spent

Time is “well spent” for the clock and watch faces I’ve used, to create this sign, but I think it is also serves as a gentle reminder to spend our time wisely. I love, the crackled look of the varnish on this old wood. I used CeCe Caldwell chalk paint, in the colors Vermont Slate and Johnston Daffodil.  I lightly sanded the whole sign and did it a little heavier around some of the edges.

A Theme for Thursday {stencil it!}

Nothing was safe from getting stenciled this week. I picked up a few new sets of stencils and couldn’t resist putting words on anything that couldn’t escape me.

These 3 wonderful images of dress forms are from the early 1900’s and were sent to me by Audrey @ Timeless Treasures. This one was in an ad in a 1911 “The Modern Priscilla” magazine and is a Hall-Borchert adjustable dress form.

The next two images both came from {Read More}

Antique Graphics Wednesday – Sewing Border

I love this wonderful border showing a variety of sewing notions.  This image came from a 1913 magazine called, “The Modern Priscilla” that was sent to me by Audrey @ Timeless Treasures. Thank you, Audrey! This graphic was used as the header of a column in the magazine called, “The Home Dressmaker”, which provided patterns and instructions for a variety of garments.   I think it would be perfect for stationary or business cards. To see all the past images I’ve {Read More}
