I've been stitching together some red, white and blue stars and stripes. The top picture shows the front and back sides of three lumbar pillows with removable covers; and the bottom picture is a portion of one of four patriotic banners I've created. Each pennant is 16" long and 13.5" wide at the top. The banners are six feet long, sturdy and hand washable. Each pennant is composed of two pieces of machine sewn white cotton with fusible fabric embellishments and red hand stitching on the edges. Items are available for purchase from my Etsy shop where you'll find more information and pictures.

These are a few of the items that caught my eye at the Curtice Street Market yesterday. Cathy and Carolyn were minding the shop. That's Cathy behind the desk. As usual, Anita had some magical upcycled pieces.
The flowers in the garden were at their best. And, I found some really fun garden stuff created by Jennifer. That's her clever patio bar - complete with rake wine rack and built-in ice bucket.
The Curtice Street Market is an occasional shop comprised of a group of vintage vendors and local artists.

Just wanted to take a moment to share this lovely vintage handkerchief with you. Technically, I don't think these were meant to be Easter baskets; but, they are pretty enough and close enough for me.
Have a great Easter and stop by again next week. I have a surprise for all my followers.

I'm all ready for St. Patrick's Day. Not a drop of Irish blood in me, but I do enjoy the Irish culture and I adore the color green. I've placed a lovely green and white Hanky Dress along with an ivy heart I made into a shadow box. This is a great way to display your Hanky Dresses because you can just switch them out to fit the season. You'll being seeing my new shadow box a lot. It made it's debut at the Valentine's Day Boutique Sale with a a very special red and white Hanky Dress.
Anyone can have a hanky bouquet like the one shown here. I've gathered up a few of my favorites to create this one. Take each hanky by the center to form a cone. Group them all together in a pleasing manner and stuff into a pretty vase. Hint - if you want your shamrock's to look their best, put the right side to the inside so that when you fluff them outward the right side is showing - as they are on the lower edge of this bouquet.
