Fall is just around the corner! What a beautiful hot summer we had here in Ohio. My flower garden and vegetable garden did great and we have enjoyed the beautiful flowers all summer. We have been canning everything we were blessed with to prepare for winter. It is always nice to have a stock of pickles, beets and tomatoes on the shelves. I took a week off from sewing and turned my blue country decorated spare bedroom into a Victorian bedroom. I painted cupboards, shelves, tables and cedar chest, cleaned, sorted, made new curtains, pillows and the new bedspread arrived and looks perfect. I recently bought some beautiful antique clothes and they look perfect added to the room. All the work because of a beautiful antique pitcher I bought at The Boston Road Collection. That inspired me to make a beautiful place to put it. It was a busy fun week and I enjoyed taking a week off from sewing. Now back to getting my orders finished and on to new adventures. Have a great Labor Day holiday!
It is a gloomy Saturday but still a beautiful day. We had a nice day traveling to Hartville to The Boston Road Collection to deliver Daniela the elephant and Foster the Giraffe to Brenda. Her shop is filled with the most delightful things! I had to buy an antique Victorian pitcher. It is large and so beautiful! Can't wait to fill it with roses or an arrangement of flowers. I am working on the extra bedroom changing it into shabby Victorian. I hope the bedspread arrives Monday. I still have a couple things to paint white and antique them. I also visited Helaine's in the Hartville Marketplace. Helaine is the sweetest lady and we have a connection since we both sew seven days a week. It is always a treat to talk to her and I LOVE her curtains and beautiful Victorian furnishings. We enjoyed the day out. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
I finished Daniela and Delilah Sue for orders. Today I have 4 more creations to cut out for orders! I have been painting the barn, doors in the house and finished them yesterday! Great to have those things crossed off my list. Canned tomatoes with Fred's help. This was another crazy busy week! This weekend we are going to an antique show and I am ready to have some fun!
