Attic pouch

bunch of vintage tags
I made the lace collage bag for a customer
then filled it with my vintage tags
some I embroidered others were just old lace pieces
the pouch is great to use as a coin purse
Maybe to give to a bride with funds inside
I have lots more in my shop

after the flood

My daughter and family were evacuated for 6 mths after the Houston flood
Back now trying to rebuild, so I painted her a picture for her new kitchen wall
She has changed her style from Country to Farmhouse
I like the way she framed it

the old barn in Foxglove farm

French and fab.

made a sachet with of course French lavender
It is for a bedside table or guest room I think.
 I used antique  linen from France and
a tatted doily for the decoration
tied in a pretty ribbon with rosebuds

Tess of the d'Urbervilles

I loved the book so made a 16 inch doll to remember Tess
She is in my parlor doll style with layers of country colors, a net shawl and chintz and old lace dress

a country English doll
She sits waiting for a far off home

a shabby folder for cards and photos

This has sold but still pretty to see here

Made from layers of textiles and lace all very old
I am slowly using them up, most are from France and NZ
I added some attic things to the inside pocket which is also adorned and stitched

covering my tablets

My nice daughters gave me two tablets at different times
So I had to make padded covers for them
I take them onto my Lanai and they are sometimes in the damp or wind
The folder with woman on front has several pockets inside where I keep all sorts of things like notes and pencils.

here are some views inside too
for my Samsung

for my Apple
