Be on the lookout.... my 1 year blogversary is coming up in Feb. and Valentine's day so that sounds like a good time to have a giveaway...don't you think? I think it's going to be a combo of some of my favorite things and Valentine's day so check back around the 1st. of Feb. I'm hoping you'll come back and visit before that and see what I've been up too.
We're having a beautiful sunny day here***temp's around 40***snow almost gone what more could a girl want??????? Hope your having a beautiful day wherever you live also.

Thank you Jean so much for this beautiful fabric covered box....I was the winner of Jean's giveaway and I received it today. The inside is covered with copies of sampler paper that Jean made copies from sampler's she has made and she sent some of them so I could make my own boxes along with little sampler card's to use to wind ribbon around on them. I love the card that is inside the lid on the second picture...reminds me of the Amish people we have near us & of much simpler times. Thanks again, go and visit Jean's blog you'll love it.

The picture below is of course the"new" copied from the picture below of the "old" I don't really know what it is so I just call it a baby vest because it's open on all sides...I put a silk ribbon rose at the sleeve edge to hold the sleeve together but, the rest remains open. I found the old one at a vintage shop close by thought that would make a good simple easy pattern for something new. I made the little rabbit from vintage chenille w/silk ribbon flowers around his neck. I took it to the shop where I have my items hoping someone has a special little person that they can't resist buying it for.

If you've noticed lately I've changed my backgound quite a few times because I couldn't find one that I really liked....then I found this blog background site www.cute-bloglayouts.blogspot.com and they have the "BEST" backgrounds I've seen anywhere so I'll probably still change because there are so many beautiful one's so if your having the same problem go check them out I promise you won't be sorry!

Here are the baby shoe's I made...they are made out of silk dupioni fabric and silk ribbon and the floss is the new Cosmo floss that is silky smooth love it! I've taken some of the items I've made to a shop near where I live...it's a beauty shop and where she had tanning bed's she's made a little gift shop....and invited a few people who are crafty and make different things to put their items in to sell, quite a good idea I think....her customers can pick up a gift right there...so if you happen to be a hairdresser and have your own shop might be an idea for you to try...if so best of luck to you!

It's a beautiful winter wonderland around here and we have more snow on the way today...the cardinal in the tree is our state bird and doesn't he look beautiful against the black & white background just that speck of red really stands out. My DH left for China yesterday so I get to put up with this white stuff while he's enjoying 50 to 60 degree weather there oh well, I'd rather be here (tooooooooo long of a flight) and hopefully I'll get some sewing done which hasn't happened in quite sometime I did make a pair of baby shoe's though so I'll post them tomorrow....sew till tomorrow good night, sweet dreams till we meet again!!
