Getting Back in the Groove!

So sorry I've been missing in action..
it was very busy leading up too and 
right after Easter Sunday...

Not only did I have a couple of stressful Real Estate
transactions going on but I also caught the
nasty cold/ flu bug twice!

I did get out Saturday morning and hit a couple
local sales... I'm still not feeling totally well
but I was going stir crazy!

The fabric at the top is a new found treasure!
Hey I really never tried scanning fabric.. 
but I love the outcome, I might have to 
go back and get more!

The sweet vintage plastic toys were in
a zip lock bag for 25 cents!

And I scored a box of Vintage

The whole box for $5

I'm back in the Studio working on some
Birthday Goodies...
and then some Wedding Creations!

This beautiful plush bump chenille
is enough to get me inspired!

Oh and I must not forget to share this wonderful
altered Vintage Baby Planter from my
dearest friend Elizabeth...
and her timing was perfect!
I needed a perk!!
Now this one is not getting packed away
with Easter but staying out all year long!

Have a Wonderful week!
and a big thanks for stopping by!

I get you about getting out even though you're not feeling well. Life must go on!!

The fabric you found is so CUTE! I scan all my favorite fabrics now and wish I would have discovered the idea sooner.

Lucky you with that altered lamby! I've yet to see a lamb planter in person. ♥

Sorry you haven't been feeling well, but hopefully that is all behind you now. Looks like you hit the vintage pattern jackpot. Can't wait to see what you do with all your new finds. The prettyfied Lambie that Elizabeth made for you is so sweet. I have a little vintage lamb planter that I do use... it looks really cute filled with flowers for Easter and baby showers.
