Vintage Salt Sacks, Linens & More!

When I can feel my heart beat in my repaired teeth...
Pain medications and a good movie are my plan.
To stay awake~
I gather up a mix of vintage linens... old advertising sacks...
Ooodles of quilt labels, to bring my feathered friends to life!

We have three kitty friends...
One of them LOVES to sit on my lap when I draw~
I lean my little lap desk against him.
He purrrrrrrrrs.

I have been collecting sugar, salt, flour etc. vintage sacks for
several months. I wait until I have several to wash at the same time.
The ink is delicate.
I try to preserve as much of the color as possible.
They would look sweet framed... stuffed... displayed.
They're becoming very difficult to find!

More quilt labels in my Etsy, too~
Various sizes with flowers, birds, sewing themes...

Forsythia, flowering crabs, pussy willows...
The buzz & hummm of busy bees!
We are very early this year~ Lilacs are budding!
Do hope it isn't snowing in April~

Pretty tea towels...
LOVE the hand stitching~

Spring pastels...

This sweet linen begged to be drawn on!
A little feathered friend to greet you no matter where you sit~

Cheery stitches!

I will leave you with this sweet bunny girl...
She has a bouquet for you!

Thank you for stopping by, Sweet Friends!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend~

Hi sweet Michelle! I can so sympathize with you and repaired teeth issues! Your work is absolutely beautiful dear friend, my very favorite is the round one with the embroidered flowers with your drawn birds all around! Wishing for your healing, hugs and love, Dawn

I always enjoy seeing your talent displayed on vintage linens. If vintage linens were whipped cream, your beauties would be the cherry on top!

Smiles and blessings,
Deb :o)

These are all so beautiful, Michelle! I hope you are not in pain for long, and sometimes sleep is the best thing.

So pretty Michelle! I visited your Etsy and have it marked. You have such beautiful pieces for sale, it's hard to decide which one I want to buy, hehe.

Have a terrific week~
