Giveaway Winner and New Originals!


Sweet friends!!! You're amazing!
So THRILLED you like this giveaway...
Thank you for commenting, posting and following!
There are OODLES of names in our bucket...

Here it goes...


Sweet 16 is reaching in...



The winner is...





TONYA! Back Porch Pickins!
Hooray!
Next giveaway (soon!) we'll have to have 3 winners!


These are some of the new treasures I put
in my Etsy store today...


I have been working on more of my little muslin
pieces... a little less stressful!
The linen pieces are so beautiful... I'm so worried
to make a mistake and ruin a pretty old treasure~


I'll be listing them in the next few days...


To think of the folks that sat and made so many
gorgeous edges, trims, flowers...
What would they think of someone drawing
birds, bears and butterflies all over them?

Hope you have a wonderful week~
Many thanks!

Congratulations to Tonya!! The new things are beautiful...I love the way you added the leaves and things to the embroidery on the one with the hummingbird. Somehow I think the ones who originally stitched these pieces would approve.

Congrats to the winner! What would they think? They'd probably be delighted that someone is using their linens and that you have enhanced their beauty with your art.

Kathy said...

I'll tell you what they'd say - "Why, that's absolutely charming, my dear!" They'd be knocked right out of their little cotton socks! Love these, Michelle. They are just beautiful.
