Random Vintage Stuff!

It's all about my love for all things vintage.  
A Vintage sign made by me from an old board found out in the desert!
 Remembering all the embroidered doilies. This one probably made for the back of a stuffed chair.  Remember when cedar chest were full of this stuff?
A very vintage icon here.  I could not believe I was standing next to it.  The Oscar Mayer Wiener mobile!  WOW!
A very old copy of  the book Peter Pan
An old vintage cross-stitched doily
a wonderful canape set just right for making hor'duerves in the sixties
This comes from the 1970's Pfalsgraff  pattern called yorktown.  This is a piece left from the dishes we started out with 36 years ago.

A new finished quilt for a new grand baby

 I am really getting hooked on the quilting. I am learning more each day about piecing and machine quilting.  I have so any other projects to complete.  I have craft fairs coming up so I really need to be crafting for the booths, BUT I can't stop planning and thinking about my next quilt!   Signed. Someone who is getting a new addiction!!

Blessing Dress for Baby Penny

I found a new long lace curtain panal to turn into this sweet little baby blessing dress for baby Penny
aka (Penelope June)  She wore it on Sunday June 1st and looked so sweet in it, custom made just for her tiny little chubby body.  
could there be anything sweeter?

 The back had vintage shirt buttons all the way down and the sash that tied in the back was satin.  The dress was all-over lace that was ecru!  I loved sewing this one and I always get lots of satisfaction our of making these dresses for my granddaughters.
