Re-purposed stamping from the wonderful Luxor Vintage Clothing (they do not have a web page, just location and contact info.) They have clothing, jewelry, odds and ends, oddities, etc., etc., pretty awesome store:
I think this may have been my favorite piece this time around. I made an old necklace into a headband:

I have finished up an order for a friend of my husbands. She is getting married and wanted to give something to each of her 7 best friends. Dave had showed her pictures of our button bouquets that I made for our wedding and she really liked them. So, I made her 7 mini bouquets for her friends that are to be worn as corsages. Her colors include red, orange, and coral/pink. This is what I came up with as a finished product after collaborating with her. I love these tiny bouquets; they are a unique gift that can function as a decoration/memento for the rest of their lives.
The long red strings are there to tie the corsages to the wrist. I also included an extra piece of coordinating orange ribbon in case they need to be more secure.
I am happy to report that all of the buttons, the organza flowers, and the boxes are from Etsy shops. The organza flowers were actually made by a woman in Turkey. The color is awesome. I am ecstatic that these are completed!

Yay for babies! Not for me, but other people's babies! I have had a lot of fun making these easy sets that include a blanket, 4 burp cloths and a tag blanket. They look great together and are sooooo soft! This set is for a family member's new baby.
I love tag blankets! They are super-cute and super-easy to make! The possibilities are endless! The owl here looks like he has a sweater vest on and he is wearing a tie. Is he going to work or watching Mr. Rogers? Whooooo knows?
Also, here is the finished product. We filled them up quickly and they look great. Wow, how much stuff can a person have and at what point do you realize that YOU have SO MUCH stuff? I used to think it was whenever a person moved to a new place, but now that I am not going to move anytime soon, I realize that we do have A LOT of stuff. . . . . Need to put a cap on that.
Anyway, on to making falafel and white bean and roasted garlic soup. NOM, NOM.
