for the love of vintage sheets......

I cannot tell a lie....I la la love vintage sheets! These are a few of my favorite ones that I have recently posted in my shop.

They are perfect for all sorts of projects....napkins, pillow covers, banners, fabric covered bins, name it!

This one is my absolute favorite...I love the pink clusters of flowers with the pale aqua blooms peeking a bit.

As you can see the style I like ranges from big, bold and soft and sweet. Love me some vintage sheets!

This is another favorite of mine....I love the watercolor effect....sublime. I am planning on making a few lovely tid bits to add to the shop for a posting in the near future......I'm itching for some stitching.

I have finally found a bit of time after all the hustle bustle of Christmas to post a few vintage goodies to my shop. I am in creative mode for a little red and pink as some Valentine goodies heading to my shop in the next few days as well. I found this vintage baby blanket recently and instantly fell in love....who could resist the gorgeous colors throughout?

Then a few days later I came upon this beautiful vintage strawberry it!

Starting a bit of purging and will be posting several tids bits of vintage fabrics in the days to come as well.

And who could walk away from vintage ruffly pillow covers? These are in super excellent condition...I think these would be fab in a mix and match room.....sooo beautiful! These items and more in my shop.....stay tuned for more to come!

a little something....

I love having extra gifts on hand for seems I always need a little something for someone unexpectedly. My sweet pea and I whipped up these super easy peasy fragrance jelly jars in no time flat....a great gift for someone you treasure.

You will need....

clean jelly jars
4 packets unflavored gelatin
fragrance or essential oils
food coloring (if desired)

First get your jars clean and ready to go. I had some mini jelly jars these are what I used. You will start with 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil either on the stove top or in the microwave. Next add your 4 packets of unflavored gelatin to the boiling water and stir until dissolved. Now add 2 drops of food coloring to your jars as well as about 2 capfuls of fragrance to each jar. I like my scents a little you might want to add more or less fragrance depending on how strong you would like your fragrance to be. 

Now add 1 cup or cold water to your gelatin water mixture as well as 1 tablespoon salt and stir until mixed thoroughly.  Now pour that mixture into your jars......stir each jar carefully until mixed.

They will look a little foamy....not to worry...this will go away. I like to refrigerate my jars to help them set a little quicker.  You can add a little lace or tulle to the tops of each one and a little ribbon....viola'....and instant gift! Merry Christmas to everyone and may peace be with you all!

Things on the home front have been quite emotional these past few weeks....our beloved dog of 12 years is now at peace in heaven. She gave it her best fight for the past 6 months....battling cancer, then getting degenerative myelopethy (which paralyzed her from the waist down).....then last night we made the most difficult decision and let her rest in peace. She fell asleep on my lap (just where she would have wanted to be)....and was the most peaceful I have seen her in a very long time. Animals are truly family....they help us become better people and we help them know that unconditional love they so desperately desire. My life will never be the same without her in it...but a better life I've had with having her in mine. Peace and joy to you all!
