Another Little Shabby Fabric Collage Bag "Kindness"

Have just completed another
of my fabric collage bags
seem to be making lots of these
lately, just love the way
you can begin with a simple
idea of a bag or tote
and use vintage images
laces, old buttons and doileys
and create a beautiful result
that takes you back to another time
The theme of this bag is
We can all use a little kindness in
our lives, and if we give out
lots of kindness we can always
see it coming back to us
even in small ways
I've used the same Graphics Fairy
image again, I know, but I do love this one
so couldn't help making just one more 
bag with it on, so it will probably be
the last of this image for a while
 Hope you like this one.
It is now available
for you to purchase
on my Ebay
Enjoy the rest of your day, Robyn.

More Vintage Linens!

Well winter has certainly arrived
in my part of the world
We've had severe storms
and strong winds
the last 2 days
I've had a comforting
pot of soup simmering
on the stove this afternoon
so while this was bubbling
away I've been sorting through
more of my vintage linens supply
that I'm slowly clearing out
yes I'm still thinking
the less is more idea is working well

So, am parting with a lovely set of 7
centrepiece doileys
and a crisp white set of 
table napkins
These are now available
to purchase from my Ebay
Hope your week is going well

(Sorry shabby roses pincushion now sold)
Hi everyone hope you're all
having a good week
Have just finished 3 more pincushions
Have been a little addicted to them
lately, I tried a new patchwork one
in pinks and greens
it was fun to make
and I was pleased with the result
But I think my favorites
are the vintage style ones
in the dishes
I like the old vintage look of the
glassware combined with the vintage
laces, charms, beads and motifs
which makes them more
suited to a variety of uses
as either a pincushion, or
hatpin or brooch holder
They are now available
to purchase on my ebay

Have a lovely evening
