I saw this at a Antique Fair and I took a picture to show my husband what I needed him to cut for me.  I think this would be great for my next project to put at the end of my driveway at the beach.  The pizza guy never knows which driveway is mine since we have 3 lots and several pine trees in the front of the lots.  I'm going to make this next weekend.  Right now I'm packing for a 4 day Teacher Assistant Conference in Greensboro.  I'm going to look for a Hobby Lobby so I can buy some fabric to make 5 outfits that people have ordered like the vintage outfit. I love to design new creations and I bought several wonderful patterns off the internet!!

Beach Candles

These are fun and easy to make.  You can pick up your own shells or buy them at the Dollar Tree:) where you can also buy the sand, candle and sometimes the vases.  I usually pick my vases up at Goodwill or a Thrift Store. Of course put your sand in first then the candle and I like to put my smaller shells on the bottom and the larger ones standing up on the sides.   I saw them at a outdoor wedding and new that was my next project.

I've seen so many people having drawing for items they've made so I've decided I'd join in on the fun:)  All you have to do is go to the Tooth Fairy Pillow Picture and comment on which one you like. Wed. 25th  I'll put everyone's name in who left a comment and if I pull your name out I'll let you know and get your address and sent it to you! I'll also put it up on my blog so everyone will know who won. Good luck!

Set of Vintage Pillowcases

I have several sets of Vintage Pillowcases and a few ideas of outfits that I want to make with them.  I started this outfit Sunday night and I can't quite decide which ribbon and lace I want to use.  So until I get my thoughts together this is where it sits!  I think I'll put the lace on top of the ruffled bell bottom to give it a little more vintage look.  I usually make Pillowcase Dresses but I wanted  to do something different.

I also wanted to show you 2 displays I have of vintage pieces.  The top is pieces that I found at the Cameron Antique Fair which is coming up the first weekend in May and then again the first weekend in Oct.  The second is an old quilted piece that I framed. I found the frame that had the extra little framed piece where I placed a quilting needle.

I have been working on several items lately!  Seems I might need to finish some of them up before starting on something else so here's what I have accomplished so far.  One Boy I Spy Quilt , I Spy for both boy or girl and almost finished with the girl I Spy Quilt along with an I Spy Bag.  That's a lot of I Spying if you ask me:)  Each quilt has 42 different squares and I use fussy cuts. I have an embroidery machine that I sometimes will do embroidery if it's a gift as: To Kathy  From Grammy 2012. Well that pretty much wraps up today.  I already have my material on the cutting board for a little girls outfit. Can't wait to see how that turns out!

I've been working hard trying to fill all the orders for the Tooth Fairy Pillows.  This is all I have left as I've been selling them for $5.00 each.  As I have an order I cut 1 or 2 extra ones out and put on my Facebook page and they usually sell.  I also sell them in 3 Consignment Stores in 3 different towns.  Each Pillow has a pocket in front where you put the tooth and then the money:)  If you are interested in buying one the shipping is $3.00 for 1.

Well I finally finished a project I've been working on for a while. I love this material of teals, pink and greens.  It's so soft and Spring time looking to me.  I made most of my girls clothes when they were small and just wanted to make a little girls outfit.  I'm going to put it on the website for sale.  I already have plans for my next outfit:)  I found a place that has some beautiful white eyelet material I will use for the ruffle! Can't wait to get started.

Well I've almost finished with my new project.  If I finish before I leave tomorrow I'll put a picture of it up.  If not it'll have to wait until I get back from my Spring Vacation.  I hear the beach calling my name, but I'm not so sure I hear the yard work calling my name.  I know it's a mess as we have several large Pine and Oak Trees in our yard. Oh well may just keep my eyes close as I walk by the mess:)  Can't wait to show you my finished item!
