I had a very nice day shopping and lunching with my Mom yesterday. I sure do miss her when we part. I wish we lived right next door to each other. There is nothing quite as nice in the whole world as your mommy is there? Well …and your daddy too!!
I found some very nice pretties for my new nest upstairs. They are something I feel I MUST start collecting. It’s so pretty and glittery and sparkly!! LOL Mom kept giggling because she just couldn’t quite see the beauty in them that I did. It’s Florida souvenir shell art from the 50’s.
Does anyone know if there is a name for it? The proprietor of the antique shop said they were just souvenirs that made their way up north. I tired to find info about what company makes/made them, but couldn’t really find anything. Does anyone have info?
Some of you were interested in making a “Sew” sign for yourselves! Do it!!! I just painted a frame that my dad has made a ton of for me. You could build yourself a frame, use an old window, or picture frame.
I picked a font I liked in word…and typed them REALLY LARGE and traced them right off my computer screen:
Traced the letters on steam a seam
ironed them onto fabric
cut them out
used a decorative stitch on my machine to sew them to the backgrounds
got out my trusty staple gun and stapled them to the frame in the back!
later gators! melissa
