Its been over a week since I last posted on my blog. I must confess I've been feeling a little blue lately. Nothing serious! I'm just a bit disappointed that I had to postpone a holiday that I'd been planning (and really needing) for some time..boo hoo :-) It hasn't helped that the weather has been miserable here in Ballarat. What better way to cheer myself up than to do a bit of thrift shopping. It's getting so hard these days to find any vintage in op shops but I managed to find these.... heaps of vintage 70's brown cotton fabric with sweet children's print......a little Pyrex dish ( a freebie..yippee!)....vintage 70/80's bed sheet with the cutest storybook print....and a tiny ceramic cat.
I really felt like doing some sewing this week. These vintage fabric flower brooches turned out really well I think. I showed them to my husband and 19yr old daughter and they weren't that impressed, but I really like them.
I love these two books - Modern Vintage Style by Emily Chalmers and Vintage Craft Workshop by Cathy Callahan. I had ordered them some time ago and completely forgotten about it, so I was pleasantly surprised when they showed up at my front door this week. New books...Yay!
Here are a few images taken from Vintage Modern Style.....
....and Vintage Craft Workshop.
**Another thing that made me smile this week was finding out my little craft shop SweetnKitsch is currently the 2nd top seller on Craftumi...YAY! A big THANK YOU to all my lovely customers.
Have a great weekend everyone :-)
