time to celebrate..

So many reasons to celebrate!
Mom turned 80, graduation next week, and Hannah has a birthday right around the corner.
May has been such a beautiful month.  I have had the idea to make these little birthday lambs for a bit now.  Finally sat down and made them.

couldn't resist a little pink party hat lamb.  For the hat I used some pretty party tissue with some glitter trim.  The crepe paper collar is only 1/2 inch wide folded in half and a piece of pink tulle is tied in a little bow.  In the shop while they last...

one thrifted canvas panel.....

one thrifted canvas panel plus one vintage (reclaimed) metal zipper
and a bit of thread.

this one is for my traveling pens.  it needs a leather pull tab I think, and can't decide how many circles to sew on....

sweet hearts...

Every Valentines Day it seems I can't resist sitting down to sew up a few sweet hearts.  This year I started out with a bowl of cream and red wool hearts and a gorgeous box of vintage millinery flowers.  After a perfectly luxurious afternoon of stitching I snapped a few photos of them all together.

this red wool felted heart has a bouquet of the tineist plaster stamens and a satin Japanese cherry blossom.

  you can see how tiny they are in my hand.  the pink and cream is just so sweet and delicate.

five of the cream and pink ones together, so hard to pick a favorite!

I am going to love giving these away this year...

Etsy Shop Feature and a studio tour~

I almost couldn't sleep last night....
the Esty shop feature for my shop Vintage Handmade went up this morning. It is so fun to see all the photos Kimber Gleave Jepperson took for me and to read the comments. A great day for our whole family. Thanks so much to my sweet husband Matt and to my kids for encouraging me on this wonderful journey even though the shop is taking over our family room again...  here is the link to the Etsy Blog and my feature.

I wanted to share some of the photos of my studio that I didn't send to Etsy.  I just adore my desk.  I rescued it from a thrift store.  The college nearby was renovating their offices and discarded multiple desks and matching shelves.  I sat on the one I wanted until my husband showed up with the truck.  I have been using it for over 20 years and still love the big space and the little typing trays that pop out on both sides for extra work space.

 here is the matching shelf and a little red phone that I just adore.

making silk velvet mushrooms...

Here is the vintage shop wire rack where all my ruffles and tinsel trims live

I always have a little display of bottle brush trees, these are in a vintage glass caddy.

This old cabinet has the most beautiful oval glass window.  I keep all my spools of vintage trims here and my favorite old millinery hats.  The Wonderland banner I made when the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland came out, an invitation for me to create the wonderland of my imaginings...

My lovely south facing windows.  I can sit and work and watch the beautiful changing seasons.  This week the Fall leaves have been blowing and casting a gorgeous golden glow over everything.
My favorite view out this window is early on a winters morning morning with a cup of tea and my cozy wool slippers watching the snow fall...

Thank you for joining me on this wonderful journey.
Best wishes from Vintage Handmade studio,
