It is getting quite spring-like out where I live, in the desert southwest, but on Friday and Saturday we had a big storm come through and it was raining and colder. On Sunday morning I got up and it was sunny and the weather predicted 70 degrees. I thought I am tired of going to church in dark winter colors, so I pulled out a new chiffon top that I made one day a few weeks ago, when I was in the mood to create something new at my sewing machine. I took one of my favorite tops and used it for a pattern. I love the way it fits and did not have a pattern I particularly liked for that bordered fabric, so just made a pattern from the other shirt. I was not sure how it would turn out, but I was pleased when I got finished.Laurie Jackson of indulgeyourshelf.blogspot.com and it sure seemed to go with it well. I felt kind of cute at church, and got many compliments on it. I also sewed vintage buttons on the front in the middle of the ruffles. With the brooch and the buttons, I will have to call this my vintage top!
I had a dear friend to lunch the other day and she brought me this beautiful necklace in this sweet little box. We exchange belated birthday gifts as her birthday is the day before mine in February. Thankyou to Tracy. I love it! It sure looked nice with the brooch from Laurie and was just right for the new top.
Also the other day I got to looking at the Silhouette that I also got for my birthday, and took pictures of others I had. I love the spring backgrounds behind the glass. I have 4 domed glass silhouettes, and I know they are vintage, but can anyone tell me when they were popular?
These two will be put into frames, just as soon as I find some. Or I might even list them on Etsy!
This one came from an antique shop just by itself and I pasted it to a card. It is from Germany.
I wish I knew the art of cutting such fine little silhouettes.
