off to cupcake heaven


at an estate sale i came across this whole box full of vintage grannie stuff. the older couple was moving to a retirement home and this stuff was from her mother and grandmother! lovely hand embroidery and crochet work. i dug out aprons, doilies, hankies, old scissors, lace, trims, tablecloths, pillowcases and these amazing crotchet potholders. i picked out my favorite pieces, but looking back i should have just bought the whole box! i sent these potholders off to jenny to live in vintage cupcake heaven. they just seemed to want to go there. i hope she really uses them. i can't even imagine when women spent that much time making potholders but i adore the idea of them making everyday things beautiful.



these little posies i made for each of the moms that came to our moms and muffins day at school. so tiny and sweet. the flowers are tucked into a little wet square of floral oasis and wrapped in colored cellophane. i mist the blossoms and store them in the fridge until i give them away.
it is a day for flowers and thinking about loved ones. enjoy, julie
