Sunday, March 7

Good morning everyone. I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I received the paper egg crates that I ordered. If you haven't followed my blog, go to tarnished and tattered to see her Easter egg baskets. I can't wait to make these for my girls. Can't do it this weekend, because the youngest is home from college on Spring break. She is such a joy to be around. Well, time for some new items. I have this vintage hand quilted piece hanging over an old barn board. It is hung by rusty wire. I am selling the entire set for $15.00. I also made these prim pears. I love the look of them in an old bowl. They are made from muslin, heavily stained and then sanded, each pear has a hole in it with a piece of homespun peeking thru. They have a twig stem and over dyed wool leaf. I added a rusty safety pin to each one. I will be selling these for $3.00 each.

Harriet went to a good home over the weekend, so did Chester. Thanks to those who stopped by the shop. Well back to creating. Hope the rest of your Sunday is fantastic. Lynda


  1. I want to see your egg baskets when you get them finished! I love the grungy pears & yes, they look awesome in the bowl. Have a great week. Lisa

  2. Hi, Lynda!

    I love the way the quilt hanging turned out! It looks like a well-loved piece and needs to go to someone's home to continue its journey. Don't you wish you could know its history? The pears too are fantastic! Can't wait to see what else you come up with!

    Take care!
