Hello my friends,
I'm not sure when it started, but as long as I can remember I have been a 'theme' girl.
Give me a theme and ideas start running rampant in my mind.
I'm not sure if it's a blessing or a curse! lol!
(now that I've confessed this, watch someone give me a theme and my mind go blank) :)
I just finished watching the BBC series, Paradise. I loved the character, Denise. I think it was because she always had ideas popping into her head.
I enjoyed it so much that I decided to carry on a similar theme with my living room mantle this year.
SEW in Love With You!
(I gifted my stitching group friends with the chalkboard clipboards a few years ago for Christmas. Of course, I made one for myself.) Old spools wrapped with handmade lace and a heart made from an old cutter quilt)
All it takes is stepping into my sewing room for lots of vintage sewing treasures to help carry out my theme.
The Old White Rotary was scored at a yard sale years ago.
I made the hearts from old linens.
I recently found the little shoe at a thrift shop. I added a bit of stuffing and covered it with a piece of an old quilt. A pretty pin and a spool charm helped to dress it up.
This sweet altered art heart was one of my first give away wins.
In high school mom made all of my dresses. I don't recall, but I wonder if she used one of these to measure my hem?
I love old buttons, wooden spools wrapped with yummy colors of thread, and pretty much any vintage sewing notion!
I've always loved the old tomato pincushions. Can't resist picking them up whenever I run across one. I found the oil can in OR last summer. Love the sweet pink pin stripes!
I picked up the cute angel at the 'fleology' sale.
I draped a faux crystal and paper heart banner from the mantle.
Just a little reminder that I am
SEW in love with you!
I wish I could say that I am everybody's 'Dream Girl',
I am your 'Theme Girl'!
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
