Its Wednesday my dears!
I love when it is the middle of the week and the weekend seems right around the corner. Today the weather man said is suppose to be beautiful outside! I really hope it is because I would like to get some more yard work done. Dreadfully I must say our yard is not a pretty site! The last owners did not take care of the poor thing and there is garbage, rocks, and dead spots everywhere! So with rake in hand I hope to enjoy some sun today :)
As of lately I have been obsessed with pincushions!! I have no idea why, but I am. So here is a sneak peek of some little cushions I have been working on. The one above is my favorite! It was made from some vintage screen printed linen I had stowed away. The colors are beautiful! The buttons are also vintage, and the colors amazing! I still haven't decided if I will give this one up or not :)
Below is the next cushion I made! This one is my 2nd favorite :) It is also made from vintage screen printed fabric I found at an antique store last year! It has a nautical theme with sharks, lighthouses, houses, boats and birds. The buttons are also vintage from the 1950's. I am still not sure if I am going to leave this one as is or embellish it some more? Hmmm, I guess I will have to think about it some more!

Before I head off to cleaning and laundry (yuck). I will share a cute little order I had from a sweet as can be lady from Texas! Three mini coin purses in a sushi theme! I fell in love with how adorable they came out!! Maybe the shop will have some sushi in the future :)
Have a lovely day everyone!
