Bonheur


In French, Bonheur means happiness, to have joy, or luck, good luck or good fortune. I made this little wall hanging with a horse shoe cut out wrapped in French newspaper. I added vintage buttons and vintage ric rac and scrabble pieces for the letters, and added a little pink paint to those. I think it fits perfectly in my little abode but alas it will be for sale next week at Sweet William Market.

Etsy Treasures::Maggie Whitley




I stumbled upon Maggie Whitley's Etsy Shop thru Becca:: Maggie (a.k.a. Gussy) sews and sells charming wallets, clutches, and little cosmetic bags and now diaper/toddler bags. She has really fabulous fabric and I love the ruffle detail on my wallet. The wallet also has room for 16 debit cards and a nice big pocket on the other side for check books. It is perfect for taking it out of your purse and carrying around a summer market. You can find her on etsy under http://www.maggiewhitley.etsy.com/ or on her blog. She has lots of other fabulous items available.
Thanks Maggie!
p.s. I took the photo of the wallet with my Grandma's black and white vintage straw bag. I love the combination of black and white! What can I say?

Crafting Night & Sweet William Market Preview

Emily and I had another crafting night to get ready for the Sweet William Market. Crafts make us giddy apparently because we had way too much fun! Here are some of the things we will be selling at Sweet William Market. Enjoy!
.........................................................................
Emily's Fabulous Paper Wreath::
Emily made this Paper wreath made with cupcake liners, and a vintage McCalls magazine and vintage adornments.



fabulous, isn't it?
..................................................................................................
Emily's Hair Pins::

Emily made these little hair clips with Vintage McCalls Magazine pages and vintage adornments.


.................................................................................
Little Bird Adornments::
I made these with little wooden bird cut outs, ribbon, french stationary and other paper goods and vintage buttons. We think these would be great hanging off a vintage bottle or with a gift or even used as wedding favors. I don't know if I can part with them but I shall try!



...................................................................................................
Wait, there's more!!!

Stay tuned to see what I do with these or come to Sweet William Market in Denver Colorado, if you happen to be around!!!
.....................................................................................................
vintage jewels that Emily is adding to headbands... Lovely! The headbands are going to go fast so be there early to get a hold of a few.
.....................................................................................................
Every good night of crafting has to start with a fabulous dinner and some wine!
All in all, it was a very good night.

Happy Mother's Day!


me and my mom at a show in 2007

Lovely cupcake ornaments that my mom hand sewed. aren't they lovely?

Thank you to my mom for being so wonderful, talented, fun and helpful. I get so much of my craftiness from mom and grandma. I am wishing my mom a Happy Mothers Day from afar. I wish I could be in Nebraska to celebrate... ! When my mom lays awake at night, she sometimes thinks up card designs for me and creative ways of doing things. What a mom! She also does a lot of sewn items for the shows I do:: slippers for kids, aprons for kids and adults, little embellished barrettes, the handsewn cupcakes pictured above. She is such a support to me.
And to my sister who is a wonderful mom to her four wonderful kids and a wonderful sister too. Love you both!

Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there!
