I had not even looked inside when I said yes please to this little book. It is a great reference to wild flowers and some are very rare now so when I am hunting around the hedgerows this summer I will be able to identify them if I see them and jot down where and when I did. I love wild flowers more than the cultivated ones .
I have photographed a few for you to look at and they are hand painted as well ... I am beyond thrilled with this treasure!
I bought a most gorgeous antique, hand painted button card as well from Linda Campbell it was such
a beautiful thing. I already have a mother of pearl button card with flower shapes all present and correct and a button card with the tiny buttons that would go onto boots and dresses in all the most gorgeous soft colours and all mother of pearl which is framed and on my wall. This card has a seaside theme and of sailors ... It would not normally be my thing but with the hand painted art on the card as well it just had to come back home to my wall of buttons... What do you think.?
Then I was at Vintage-On-Sea and as you may remember from the photos there was some gorgeous
china and some fabrics as well as other beautiful goodies.
I did buy two china plates and I will photograph them on my dresser later on, I want to change it around a bit and pop them up so it will not be today. However the fabrics are really beautiful and I was over the moon with them. They are all nicely tucked up in tissue waiting to be stored but I have not
This fabric had my name on it and again what I do not need might end up in some fabric packs to move on.
I have some gorgeous fabrics and I use what I would like and keep a little for my personal use and then to make room for other fabrics still not discovered by myself yet. It is the way forward I think.
The as you know I had made an order from Sarah of The Blueberry Patch and it had been some
weeks ago. I had asked if she had any more primitive images and I wanted them on bigger cushions but with a matt image and not shiny. As always this wonderful and lovely lady stepped up to the plate for me once more.
I had ordered three and I love them so much. Ready for the season later in the year around September when I like to decorate for Thanks Giving and go on over into Halloween. Sarah is not at every fair so I wanted to be sure
I had these in my arsenal and ready. I love primitive and my new designs are going that way a little. I love the simple nature of them.
The old painted houses that I have loved for so many years and which feature in one of my Shaker inspired designs of late. These on a cushion are just the right look for September time.
