Back in the Saddle

I'm feeling much better after taking a little break and am looking forward to getting back into the blogging groove. Made a quick pop-in to a local antique store and scored a few fun finds. A spool of vintage twill, vintage doll clothes, a Victorian ornament made with cotton batting, 1950's birthday candle holders, vintage gold sequins, and a bit of eyelet trim.

The husband and I are beginning to house hunt, so that has been an exciting adventure. We've been taking long walks in different neighborhoods trying to get a feel for where we might like to live. After we married, he moved into my single girl house and it's been a bit cramped, so it will be nice to have a new place we can share as a couple. Because I married late in life, I wasn't prepared to give up half of my closet space. Poor guy...he's been using the hall coat closet as his primary closet. But you know how guys are...they're so easy going.

I'll leave you with a little sneak peak of what I've been working on lately.

You totally scored on your shopping. And that last photo glimpse of whatever you are making with the bunny is especially adorable.
