July goes out with a Cottage Bang!

Hi Friends!  Can't believe that July is almost over!  The Etsy Cottage Style group is having a Cottage Colors party and they asked us to share our Red, White, and Blue things as a good-bye to July!!  

Sounded like fun to .... Here are some of mine:    

This is a little pincushion I made using a sweet old silver sugar pot.

Pretty Floral Quilted Table runner made with a vintage hanky, some real vintage feedsack, some repro vintage fabrics and some actual vintage fabrics...and, of course, some rick rack!!  

This a is a pretty birds bagkeeper (for keeping those plastic grocery bags) made from a really wonderful vintage linen calendar.  It was never used or washed so the colors are scrumptious!  

This little guy I call Retro Baby Blue.  He is a small little guy in size, but big in personality!!  

Sometimes the blues at the cottage tend to lean a little to the aqua side!!  Here's a sweet little drawstring bag with a cute bird and some....wait for it.....RICK RACK! 

Well, that's enough!  Thanks for looking, stop by my shop and see what's "new" and what's "old"  and what's "new from old"!

OH!!  and I have some exciting news, I'm actually in the process of cleaning my studio (someone get the smelling salts!)  lol and I've opened a new shop on Etsy to sell off some of the goodies I'm running across!  They are Extra and they are Good-they're ExtraGoods!
