Gypsy Curtains and Pretty Patchwork

I really love patchwork - I guess that's why I'm attracted to making Gypsy Curtains - patching together vintage scarves,,,


I named this pair "By The Time We Got To Woodstock" because there's a beautiful little purple scarf that's a 1969 calendar.

Some inspiring patchwork lovelies from Pinterest...






Save those scraps!

Room For Color

My daughter Andrea is a contestant in Apartment Therapy's "Room For Color" contest.  Her living room with it's vintage red velvet couch is full of flea market finds and lots of talent and imagination...


You can pop on over there and see all of the entries ( be sure and 'favorite' Andrea to help her along!)

We are family...

Vintage Tins

If you're like me and can't resist vintage tins, stop hoarding (me, again) and start using them around the house.  Some beautiful and practical ideas...












Now, where did I put all those old tins?

Magic Carpet Ride

Why don't you come with me on a magic carpet ride?



not a great carpet - obviously coach...





New Orleans people will get this one...


I had this outfit in the 70's...





Well, you don't know what we can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
