Birthday Girl

My Lily Mae turns 7 today . It's amazing how fast time goes by seams only yesterday she was just a little baby.
Every girl wants to be a princess right? I created this pretty garland out of strips of fabric, I had so many little pieces of this and that , and this was a great way to use them all ..Isn't it pretty!I have another one in the works of creams and whites and vintage linens.I am going to use them when I will be a vendor at the next funky junk sisters show for my booth!

A close up of all the pretty fabrics. I used strips ranging from 2by8 inches to 3 by 12 inches. With a little burlap mixed in , It really didn't take too long at all, i tied them onto a sturdy piece of ribbon.
And a party wouldn't be a party without another old dress I picked up off of ebay, I really love this one, with it's velvet waist band.

And layers of tulle ruffles. I think i am addicted to these !

Hope you have a lovely weekend , We got Lily a new bike so I am sure we'll be out on some bike rides! xo Andrea

Check it out!

I have been making these cute headbands for my girls ,using old millinery flowers. I just love them ,I used a piece of old pale blue elastic, then sewed it together and glued on the flower.
Art really does save , as a busy mom is my time for myself , it is relaxing to me and with my own little studio, it's like my own little getaway ...

I love what Jenny has done with her new venture . Visit Crescendoh as I am a guest curator for this week and have gathered several great links of pretty things!

What makes you happy?

This is so pretty! I specailly ordered this from Gabrielle after seeing one on her blog and I can't even tell you how pretty it is! Old fabric and tulle flowers ,I am going to hang this in my girls room ,maybe ? I kinda like it for myself, but I need to quit hoarding! Do you ever feel like a hoarder?

I love vintage images, they make me so happy, like these I found at a yard sale today .
And this ...I love the saying "many happy returns of the day"
I found this today and I love it ! I hit the best yard sale and this one of the treasures. My favorite thing about summer is the yard sales. Especially when there's antiques involved.Hope you have a great weekend ,I have been getting ready for the barn sale ,will take lots of pics!Just realized all my pics are cut off again!! err!
