I love all that is French General so I high-tailed it to my local store....
my budget was a little limited that day but I did come home with these!
You will just LOVE this line....






A few years ago I had the privilege of meeting sweet Fifi O'Neill when she came
to Georgia to shoot a friend of mine's home....




She was the editor of Romantic Country magazine at the time and
has also freelanced for so many other magazines too!

Well, this girl has OUTDONE herself!!!!
I picked up the recent issue of Romantic Prairie Style magazine this weekend.
Fifi is the editor and I just have to say ~
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!

It is FILLED to the brim with all the things we all love....
I just have to share a few peeks inside
but you have GOT to go get a copy,
I promise you will love it so much.













Here's a little look at what I'm up to in the studio....I'm such a nut.
If I have someone want one needle book, I have to cut out FIFTEEN!
What is wrong with me??
But I do have several different types this time...
even Americana ~





Plus, I've added a few new goodies to my Etsy shop!!!




A peat pot nest baby...the inspiration for my class at Paper Cowgirls!

Making pretty things...


I just never get tired of it!!!
I'm fortunate in the fact that I have the time to make
these little treasures...

First a sweet image for you ~

I have a special order of two lavender sachets that have the same
"feel" as my recent cream/white needle books ~
PLUS my customer wanted to be able to replace the lavender buds inside
once they lose their fragrance.
SO, this is what I came up with!

It's a bit of a pouch....
with ties at the top.
Same layered linens and lace ~



My lavender insert is created from a loose weave scrim ~
that will let that wonderful fragrance out!



A few goodies I used ~





See how I left the top open and added a couple of seam binding ties?



And then I inserted the scrim lavender pouch ~



 Then I embellished it with a scrunchy seam binding bow, a few antique buttons and voila!




 I just love this tiny old bread tin...I keep pretty buttons inside.



 And now I'm ready to start the other sachet to complete her order!




I did cut out a few extras I hope to add to my Etsy shop in a few days too :)

I hope you've been having a wonderful week...
sometimes it's hard to squeeze a little creativity into our schedules,
but it's always so rewarding when we do!!!

Wishing you a GREAT Thursday dear friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Timeless beauty ~


What is timeless beauty to you?
It's what you love....year after year after year.

I began pulling out a few treasures today and fell in love all over again!
I'm going to make a few lavender sachets and needed
to gather the components together ~
and it doesn't matter how long I've had them,
when these beautiful laces, linens, quilts and ribbons are
all piled up together...my heart simply swoons.

I had to take a few photos to share with you,
because I know if you're here,
you love them too!!!


Here's the beautiful, old tattered quilt that I use as a base
for my needle keeps and now sachets.
Don't worry, it has several bad spots
and is now being used again...just for a different purpose.







I even have a few scraps from other old quilts that I just adore...
they will make beautiful needle books or sachets too, don't you think?




I also pulled out a few old Victoria magazines...
talk about timeless beauty!!!!
Can you believe this is one from 1997???
Just look at a little of what's inside ~
















Beautiful, right??? I need to pull out more, I have quite the stash....
These old issues always, ALWAYS inspire me.



 And just a few more pics of my sweet linens and lace for you ~




I can't help myself.
I love all that is old and beautiful....
and just having these treasures around is absolutely inspiring!!!



Have a beautiful Wednesday precious friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn
