I've been keeping an eye out for these since spring started, and finally, they are starting to show their pretty little faces. My peonies are blooming! Every year I can hardly wait to chop them down once they open enough and put them in a pretty vase given to me by my husband's parents. It's the perfect size and shape for a bouquet of peonies.
Also, a special prize came for me in the mail yesterday. I marked this necklace as a fav on Etsy ages ago and I finally ordered it. I fell in love with the little glass bluebell flowers at once and knew I would have it! I love it! The little strawberry is a locket, hum...... what photo shall I put in it?
Lastly, I need to say a big thank-you to my Dad. He's always on the lookout for me in for any crafting "things" that I may be able to use while he is at garage sales, estate sales, or wherever he finds himself. We live in different states, so between the two of us, we have Colorado and Kansas covered. Anyway, a few weeks ago he sent a package to me with some of his latest finds. All I can say is, Dad, you're the best. You make my heart sing and I love you!
Ok, so here are some pics!
Just look at these lovely buttons! My favorite is the blue flower one.
These are knit squares someone cut for a quilt. Most of them have interfacing fused to the backs already. I may have to make my first quilt! The fabrics are all so interesting, just my style!
And would you just look at all that beautiful fabric. Someone cut out several pieces, sewed some together and then stopped for some reason. I'm sorry to say that it won't end up the way it was originally intended, but I already have a few pretty projects in mind for this.
