Pumpkin Orange Pom Pom Trim

Ruffled Crepe Paper Garland - Orange Spice & Black Licorice

Spooky Haunted House Vintage Playing Cards

So Easy!

I saw these beautiful cardigan candle covers on another blog recently and totally fell in love with them. I thought they looked so warm and cozy and very simple to make.

So while I was out at some local thrift stores I picked up a few old cardigan sweaters and some glass containers and decided to put some together.

This one is my very first attempt and I think it came out beautifully! This one is a lovely blue color, which matches my color scheme and I have plans to add a cream colored one and a rust colored one (if I can find a cardigan in that color).

Oh...And I'm already planning all the wonderful color schemes for this Thanksgiving and Christmas! I can just, green, white....oh the possibilities!

Today was my first day of vacation (yah!) so I headed out bright and early to hit some estate sales. The sales were not that fruitful so after only stopping at two I headed off to find some thrift stores. I actually drove across the state line to Post Falls and decided to see what their local shops had to offer.

Well.....they were fabulous!

I picked up some pretty good deals at the first three stores..but then I headed to the Hospice Thrift Shop. The moment I walked in the door I was knew I was in for a treat! They had a HUGE section entirely devoted to crafts...There were walls and walls of fabric, yarn, sewing items, and so much more.

These pictures only show a very small amount of what they had. Everything was so neat, organized, and priced very well. They sure know how to do things right at this store..and all the money earned is going to such a great cause.
I know I will be heading back for sure!

Scrap Attack!

The Summer Collection

Sunshine Garden Collection

The Earthy Collection

Lately I've been addicted to making vintage last week it was gingham...but honestly..I've been hooked on buttons since I was a little girl.

By making your own buttons you can use some of your most favorite vintage fabrics...and then you can enjoy them anytime( I have several that are pinned onto my pin cushion).

Since it's all about the fabrics..I created some wonderful vintage scrap packs that are a collection of some of my favorite vintage fabrics. These little mini packs are filled to the brim with little bits and pieces of adorable prints and patterns...which are perfect for button making.
I listed them in my shop and they have been flying off the shelves!

Here are a few of them if you'd like to check them out...

I adore them SO much that I have acquired quite a bit of them...but haven't had the time to make anything from them.

So...I decided to let loose of a few of them and
