Let me first say that if I don't win this giveaway, I will most certainly be buying some prints from the lovely Tollipop! I adore her blog - how have I not seen it before?!? It is hilarious - I mean, really, laugh-out-loud funny. Her stories are deeeelightful - and I'm off right now to peruse her archives. Go over there right now and have a look around - I promise you'll love it!
We go to estate sales almost every Saturday - it's our little family ritual in the spring and summer. We hop in the car - kids still in their pj's - grab some breakfast, and cruise around town. It's a fun way to see old houses and find some treasures. I came across this gorgeous tablecloth a few weeks ago for $6 and I couldn't pass it up. It has the most amazing emboidery on it, especially on the corners, and I knew it would be great incorporated into Delaney's Easter outfit. I didn't use the corners on her skirt so I have to figure out what to do with them. Any suggestions?
I used some Michael Miller bias trim, and let me tell you - it is SO nice. It's silky and smooth and sews on so easily. I also used the last little bit of my Amy Butler Lime Full Moon Polka Dots - that has to be one of my favorite fabrics of all time - it just matches everything!
Delaney had this pink cardigan that was missing a button so I just went with it - I took off the other buttons and sewed on mismatched buttons in yummy candy colors. She loved looking at all the different colors and shapes - and it looked adorable!
I haven't lined the kidlets yet, so no pictures of them. I forgot to buy the cotton webbing for the handles, but once I finish them I'll upload pics. Hmmm....what else.....I'm excited to finish up some pillows and bind my wallhangings - I'm hoping for a shop update sometime in the next week or so.
That's all I've got, friends! Mwah!

And I'm coveting one of these old subway directories - I LOVE them. Maybe one will make its way into our next house.
