Fresh Old Stuff

Hi peeps! I only have a few minutes right now--but wanted to share a couple new items I put in my shop this week. A gal contacted me about making her a bagkeeper for her green/yellow kitchen, so....as I often do, I made 2 of them--you know, so she could have a couple to pick from. Well, I got them done and she didn't like either of them (she doesn't like polka dots, what a weirdo! I had heard that there were people like that out in the world, but I had never actually met one before!!) LOL!

Nooo, I'm just kidding around! Different strokes for different folks, ya know?! Personally, I love polka dots, I think they are charming and sweet--but they are not for everyone :o) Sooooo, now I have a couple new bagkeepers for my Etsy shop!

Here is the first one--it's focal point is a really pretty yellow hanky covered with white flowers-fresh and pretty with it's yellow, green, and cream borders
The next one is called Cottage Roses--again I used a vintage hanky--but this one has pretty coral pink and yellow roses--and that particular lovely vintage green. I used more of the feedsack prints for the borders in this one to give it a real vintage flair. Oh, and a pretty yoyo in the center, just for fun!

Oh, and I also added this sweet little hobnail dish---what a cutey!! Don't you just love those white maple leaves with the shiny gilt?? AND that perfect shade of vintagey Paris pink? Love it!

OK--I have to run! I'm "this close" to finishing my big order and want to get it done today! I have been on the comp way too long already this morning (I had to write up answers to a nice interview on another blog--details soon!) Have a great day everyone--and thanks so much for stopping by--you all make me SO happy when you stop by and leave a comment--it just makes my day!!

HUGS!
