[a weekend of treasure hunting, sewing, and 2 blondes]

when we get together...there's just no stopping us.

look at the beautiful treasures we brought home! we found a yard sale, went to our favorite antique mall here in Indiana, and to a lovely fabric store called Clementine's Dry Goods.

a fish bottle that looks marvelous in my bathroom.

lovely Amy Butler fabrics and antique fabrics and tables cloths...oh and a fun tin bowl with bright colors!

Mom's beautiful chandelier that she's going to hang on her front porch.

a manual mixer...don't know if I'm going to use it or find somewhere fun to put it in my kitchen.

antique necklaces and monogrammed statoinary.

a basket full of goodies on top of a picnic basket that I bought for 5 dollars!

more lovely fabrics...

while at Clementine's we bought a pattern of one of Amy Butler's bags [the birdie sling]

look at these fabrics...if only they knew the wonderful purse they are about to become!

these were mom's choices.

and thus it begins...

look we made pockets!

and the top trim...

look at those gussets!

hard at work on the sewing machine.

they're finished!!

modeling our beautiful creations...thank you Amy Butler for your beauty & creativity!
