More treasures I Love

There is so many beautiful things in this world to enjoy and for some reason I am just overwhelmed with all this stuff I have collected and stashed  in my studio. I had to resist going to another estate sale this weekend. I kept reading the listing and telling myself there is nothing there you want. I finally convinced myself and went to a King's Daughter Christmas bazaar. I bought a great necklace. It's one you twist around and make your own design. It's sliver , maybe named a twist necklace?


This is just so much fun.I am wearing it today .

I was downstairs this morning and I think I have my ribbon rack back where I want it. I just love ribbon and I guess I am a hoarder when it comes to some things like ribbon. this is just some of it.The rest is in the storage room.

I couldn't get them all in the picture

On the second round is my pink satin ribbon I used for the drawer pull on my little white bedroom end table. It didn't sell at the last flea market for $20.00 so I put it in the downstairs guest  bedroom.

I was just moving things around and want to show you think yellow (Vaseline) don't know what kind of glass but anyway I bought it at a yard sale a couple years ago and it is so not like me to buy yellow. However now I like it.

I ran across some old aprons patterns that are just to cute. I need to take time and make me an apron.

I  do need a party apron. I have a party every December and invite some of my girlfriends over for snacks and I really need to wear one of my party aprons this year.

       Here is one of   mine and Sissy's Christmas cards we are sending out this  year.    I seen these  at Marshalls yesterday and I thought oh there is me and Sissy on this card so had to have them. Of course the lady is a little slimmer than me and Sissy needs a black face and black velvet ears but we can pretend if the people recieving them can.



  1. I love those aprons. At our flea market someone made pillows with old pattern images on them...wish I had bought one (can't remember exactly how she did it!). What a perfect "snapshot" of another era! Lovely! Trish

  2. OH that would be so nice to copy the images from these old patterns to fabric. I am going to ask my sewing friend how to do that good idea Trish

  3. This is really nice post works well and easy to configure...thanks for all info. Carpets in Abu Dhabi
