So, the other day I was down in my craftroom, trying to accomplish something--and nothing was going right! Ever have that? Kept dropping things, couldn't make fabric decisions (kept looking at all the fabric and just couldn't make a definitive decision on which combo to use!), and making rookie mistakes (sewed the fabric together one right-side-up and the other wrong-side-up!).
Then, happy as a little lark, I got back in my car and headed out some more. Cruising along I spotted one of my favorite shops in the world--this fun second-hand furniture shop which is also chock full of knick knacks, vintage china, and crafty stuff that the owner finds at estate sales and stuff. As soon as I walk in the door, she is grinning at me like the Cheshire Cat!
"What's up with you?" I asked her, chuckling. "Wait till I show you what I have --I've been waiting for you!"
AND then she brings out this great big vintage hat box that is chock full of buttons!
"You get first dibs on this." she told me!
So I ended up spending the next half and hour happily playing with the buttons! Here's what I ended up with! I would have got more, but I spent half of my allowance at the quilt shop! Isn't it great!
So I went home all happy and inspired by my little jaunt! I put together this pretty red and white Goody Bag--complete with a pretty little drawstring bag to hold it all! Available in my Etsy shop. Check out those cute little Dutch Girl buttons (a little something from my new stash!) and that cute red pom pom fringe!
