Vintage Needlepoint

My sister-in-law and I are huge fans of estate sales and like to stop by a few every Friday morning, if they are close by.  Sometimes we stop by again on Sunday if we see something, but would rather wait for the 30-50% off sale.  I'll be honest...I usually can't wait. :0)

This beautiful rose needlepoint picture is a recent find for $5.00.

I have a shabby chic/vintage look going on in my work/crafting area, so it's a perfect fit.

Thank you for stopping by!

New Bathroom Picture

Just a new little something for the bathroom.

I'm trying to add more flowers to the room, so I thought I would start with Lily of the Valley and Forget-me-nots.

Happy May Day!


"The merriest month of the year arrives bringing with it sunshine, birdsong, apple blossoms, budding lilacs, and longer days to enjoy life as spring's promise is finally fulfilled. Start the month off on a high note with the celebration of May Day!" -Mrs. Sharp's Traditions

Grace and her friend made bundles of flowers and tied the stems together with pretty ribbon.

Now, they are off to deliver them to the neighbors.

Happy May Day!

'But I must gather knots of flowers,
And buds and garlands gay,
For I'm to be Queen o' the May, mother,
I'm to be Queen o' the May.'

-  Alfred Lord Tennyson
