Pretty Please

I don't much care for clothes and shoes shopping. I have an idea of what I need, I go to the shop that I know stocks it, then I'm in and out, usually in less than 30 minutes. I've been told I'm a very boring shopping companion.

But bring me to a flea market or a crafts shops, and come back to pick me up tomorrow! I can spend hours looking through and buying fabric and all kinds of sewing notions. Recently, I promised myself that before I go acquire anything else, I should use up at least a third of my existing supplies. (Good luck to me, right?)

So this weekend, I looked through my boxes (and boxes) of lace and ribbons, and put some of my stash to use.

Spools of grosgrain inspired me to veer away from the usual nautical reds, whites, and blues of my plush sailboats. This time I made them in pastel tones, with hearts and flowers to complete the soft and pretty feel I was going for. The first of these are already up at the shop.

After the last of the sails had been hoisted, I opened my big box of vintage lace. That led to me giving my Sleep Angels a sort of Victorian makeover. What do you think?

I love your new pastel angels with lace and all, so sweet.

I'm the same with flea markets and supply shops, could spend a day there looking though all shelves and boxes and corners.
