Bobbins and Buttons

While lingering over some of my favorite blogs I came across a post by Martha at Authentica Classics.

If you haven't seen her grainsack pillows you should check them out they are AMAZING! 

But that's not what the post was about (sorry I get side tracked sometimes!).  This post was about bobbins and the industrial looms.

These types of machines just amaze me.  And as luck would have it just the other day I came across a piece that I just had to have.

This was found on a recent barn picking and I can't take credit it was my mom, Pam who found this.

But when she brought it back to the shop I claimed it for myself!

I just LOVE it!

But then I have a love of vintage sewing notions...

Which is funny for a girl who can't sew a stitch!

And yet I am forever filling up old Mason jars with buttons...

There is just something so simple and so beautiful that I have to take them home with me!

They are so Simple...

So Beautiful...

So Fun...

They just make me SMILE!

This weekend at the Shop we were fortunate enough to have Fresh Sunflowers from a local grower available.  They were a huge hit.  Can't wait for the The Vintage and Artisan Market on August 6th. Hopefully, these beauties will cooperate and bloom again!

Amazing New Jewelry Line...

So excited about this new line of jewelry that just arrived in the shop!

The messages are so wonderful.

I just can't decide which one is my favorite...

I do love this though..."Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History"...

And I love that they can be personalized to say whatever you choose!
If you want to check out more of Andra's work stop by her Facebook Page or stop by the shop.  
We'd love to see you!

Slow down and smell the...Dahlias

As it often happens life has gotten hectic...

Time is slipping away and it seems like summer is just passing me by.

So, today I stole a moment to "stop and smell the DAHLIA"

“The time to relax is when you don't have time for it" ~Anonymous

It so nice to stop and just breathe.  Life is busy and I often forget...

Land of the Free ~ Home of the Brave...

Road- Tripping has always been one of my favorite things to do.  So yesterday we loaded up the kiddos and off we went.  Like all 3 and 6 year olds they enjoyed it for all of 20 minutes before they wanted to know where we were headed.  Since I had no specific destination in mind it was time to get creative.  I always have my trusty camera with me so we decided to see how many American Flags we could find along the way.  
An Independence Day Scavenger Hunt!

The kids had a blast taking the pictures and scanning the countryside for sightings of the gold old "red, white and blue"...

" Your a Grand Ole Flag..."

"A High Flying Flag..."

"And forever in Peace may she wave..."

"The emblem of, the land I love..."

"The home of the Free and the Brave..."

Hope you all have a Happy Independence Day!  
And may the day be filled with family and friends!
