sew busy!!

The gang at Doe Hill Antiques & Decor is doing a craft show this Saturday, June 14th - Garrison Days in Beaver, PA - booth 24 on Market Street. Think good thoughts for us as the weather is mentioning 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms!! If you're in the area - please do stop by and say hello!

Dana is upholstering her heart out - and has some fabulous pieces, including a goose neck rocker in shabby chic floral with a creamy coat of paint. And Darlie will be bringing her camera to capture the event, perhaps we could get her to print and sell some of her stunning photographs next time (hint hint) and will be finessing the booth with her decorating skills.
I've been concentrating on 2T-3T, as I have a bunch of size 4-7 already made. These little capri sets are my new favorite thing - especially out of old sheets & pillowcases - wish I could wear one! And I used my quite rusty executive secretary & scrapbook skills to crank out some tags.
Don't you love this purple chair - a thrift store find!
I ran out of bias tape and elastic, but this baby is almost done. I Love it!!!


Your children's outfits are so-o-o-o adorable! Heather and I are probably going to pop down to Garrison. We usually do it, but not this year. Good luck!

Hi Kelley, your projects are just so adorable, I loved seeing that video of your daughter at the Hope the weather is beautiful on Saturday. :))
What pretty combos and colors!

I am seriously in love with this stack of vintage pretties.  My favorite is this quaint hankie!!

 Flea market find. All mine.  For - drum roll - $10!  An entire Marshall's shopping bag full. Luckily my partner in crime has eagle eyes for boxes of neglected old stuff.  Stay tuned to see what they become later!!

Omgosh Vegan Banana Cake

So. I have been MIA for almost an entire year in blog days.  I can hear the crickets. Nah, even they have left the building.  But, I am not a quitter.  Regardless of what you may have heard!  So I am back with a mission. I want to capture my recipes here. Yawn. I know. Food blog so 5 years ago.  But, it is for me. So I can have an actual record of my successful vegan offerings. I know. Vegan.  Yuck. Right?  How did that happen?  One daughter with a soul for kindness and ethical treatment of animals.  The rest of us are just vegetarians.  We are shamefully consuming butter, eggs and cheese. Not often. Just enough to gorge ourselves with our favorite pizza. And cookies. So the vegan child doesn't waste away to her birth weight, I am on a mission to redo our recipes into really good vegan offerings.  So. Warm from the oven on a brisk Autumn eve, banana cake.

It is a yummy first attempt.  I can't believe I am saying this but I will cut the sugar next time.  Crazy, huh?  I didn…

Pretty in pink...

Cotton shirts.  Love 'em. Usually can't wear 'em.  Too tight. Pull at the boobs.  Or, shrink in the first wash.  And being a plus size gal, I need some softness and movement to keep an illusion of me.  Reality in a stiff button up, not so pretty. So, an old linens table cloth, so soft. Nicely torn for texture. And an old soft lace cafe curtain.

Stella, my model, is asymmetrical so it appears wonky.
