Here is one of my newest creations. I scored a few vintage magazines recently--and one, from 1952, has a big 3 page spread of sewing patterns with these adorable illustrations! I love them! It was hard to take that first cut into the magazine (even though it is in far from collectible shape)--but I had to do it. Listed in my Etsy shop--Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage.
I've been wanting to do a drawing for a while now--I've recently passed a few milestones and want to celebrate!! Sooo--how about if I do a drawing for this pretty drawstring bag?? It's easy to enter--just leave me a COMMENT here in this post AND tell me what is YOUR FAVORITE COLOR COMBO (just for fun!)--that's it!! I'll stick all your names in a hat next Thursday (March 20th) and let one of my goofy kids draw a name. Be sure to leave me some way to get ahold of you--so if you win I can let you know!
I actually made 2 collages, but one is on it's way to the lovely GeorgiaPeachez (who happens to have several of my collages already)--Thanks Suzy! Go check out her etsy shop--GEORGIAPEACHEZ--she makes the most beautiful bags, many with vintage fabrics--just scrumptious
I also made a new bookcover--just because I felt like it! LOL That floral fabric ended up on the top of one of my teetering stack of fabric--and was calling my name! It just goes so nicely with the gray swirl--I may have to make one of these for myself. Perfect for carrying your paperback books--with handy pockets all around. Available in my SHOP.
The remodelling is coming a long quite nicely--see the freshly stripped woodwork! We have 3 of the 4 walls almost done--it's down to the trim and door painting now. Here's my sweety, paintbrush in hand (see, he's got his paintin' pants on! ) Isn't that a pretty color? Next up *cue scary music * dah dah DUM! the computer wall!! EEEEEK! OMGosh--we have to tear down the computer and reassemble it in the other room so we can strip the piano window and paint the wall --and then tear up the carpetting. Ugh. * It will be so nice when it's done, it will be so nice when it's done, it will be so nice............*
OK--so remember to sign up for the drawing, spread the word, have a fun day--and I expect you all to show up here on Monday to help me move all my computer and other junk over to the other room--'ok?
THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED FOR ENTRIES AND A WINNER HAS BEEN DRAWN!! SEE THE MARCH 20TH POST FOR WINNER!!
Thanks so much for all of you who entered and for all the kind words--I appreciate each and every one of you!! God Bless!
