Vintage Bazaar

Summer vacation is almost over and I've missed you.  Blogging has taken quite the back seat these days, what with beaching, travelling and relaxing with our children.
Another big thing that's been keeping my hands busy is....preparing for a vintage fair!  I'm so excited to tell you that Michelle and I decided to set up a tent at a spectacular event this fall - the Vintage Bazaar.
The two of us are quite giddy, scouring flea markets and creating one-of-a-kind pieces for (finally) selling in person!  We've come up with our 'vision' for our tent space and have had such fun bouncing ideas off of each other.  Here's a peek at what I've been up to...

There will be a lot of grey in our tent, and of course whites, silvers, fall browns and weathered/chippy/rusty goodies!

If you're in the area, be sure to check out this amazing vintage fair:

Also, take a look at what Michelle's been up to here.

Tilda Fox

Hello friends,
Just wanted to pop in to share a cute project I worked on recently.  This fox is from my  "Tilda's Fairy Tale Wonderland" book:

She was made for my sweet niece's birthday coming up soon.  Shhh, don't tell!

I thought the dress turned out a bit too short for this little fox (did I skimp on seam allowance?  hmmm...).  That gave me an opportunity to use this vintage cotton trim - as bloomers!

I just can't say enough about my favorite craft book:

The pattern for the foxes was pretty easy to follow and they're so darn cute!  Here is a promotional image of them:

Just realized I forgot to add a little fabric flower to my fox' dress.  I'll get on that...
Hope you're enjoying your leisurely summers!
