Can’t we all use a little eye candy on a rainy Monday? Thought I’d start off this gloomy day sharing cheerful things that make my heart go pitter-pat. Enjoy!
I found these lovely old tea tins last week. Two sold lickey–split, I plan to keep a couple of them (for now), and one just made its Etsy debut HERE.
A stitchery picture on the wall in my studio features a garden overflowing with flowers. How I wish my cottage garden looked like that!
To me, there is nothing sweeter than vintage toy sewing machines. Shown are a few from my personal collection and some that have sold in my Etsy shop. (They sell super fast.) I still have a very cute one listed HERE. And an extra-fabulous one will make an appearance in my shop soon.
An array of colorful thread that belonged to my dear mom looks very happy stored in this rustic old drawer.
Sometimes all I have to do is walk into my studio and the ideas start flowing. It’s a special place that inspires me daily.
Vintage chenille bedspreads are the epitome of cozy cottage decor. I was thrilled to discover this rare peacock one at a local antiques mall. You can find it for sale in my Etsy shop HERE.
My studio’s vaulted ceiling afforded me space for this 13-foot-long storage shelf, the perfect spot for my collection of picnic tins. I love their different faux textures and patterns. Now all I have to do is look up — and smile. I hope I’ve made you smile today, too.
