Tonight I have been sitting in front of the television hand sewing the finishing touches on my latest two Vintage Inspired Sentiment Hearts. I will be listing them in my ETSY shop tomorrow morning. These two have some additional details that my last two pillows did not have
such as several mismatched buttons and additional vintage lace. The darker, rose colored pillow has a handmade flower that has been lightly singed on the edges and the bows are made from a very sheer, lightweight cotton fabric and tulle.
Here they are before the bow and flowers are sewn on. Lots of luscious, vintage lace!
I love the wide piece of vintage lace. It was carefully cut from a beautiful place mat and stitched in place..
Did you maybe notice this tablecloth underneath the heart pillows in the photos above? I purchased it today. It is beautiful, vintage perfection! It measures about 48x50 and in excellent condition!
I may have picked up a few other items too! That little hand towel at the top with the embroidery is so cute! I love it!
The towel is in perfect condition and the linen has such a nice feel to it!
Another pile to add to my collection though this pile is much smaller!
I still have a few hearts sitting in my "to do" pile. Then I will be focusing on some birds and butterflies which are in the planning stages right now and I can't wait to begin working on them!
Also some news to share:
I was recently (informally) interviewed by Jemma who blogs at At Home With Jemma. She wrote such a wonderful introduction to the interview -- if you would like to read it please click on the link above.
The post is part of the Passion, Purpose Productivity Project that Jemma began earlier in the year. It has been very interesting and thought provoking to read all of the posts related to this project. I thank Jemma for her insight and her wonderful ability to touch upon a sensitive subject with just the right words. I also thank her for the opportunity to participate. I have enjoyed it so very much.
