Great Finds, Projects, and Inspiration

We had a great time on Saturday at the Farmington Founder's Day Festival and the Royal Oak Antique and Garage Sale.  My in-laws, husband, baby and I all went on this day long adventure together.

I picked up for myself this super cute vintage apron.  I really love the shape and flow of this apron, it is a little bit different from the apron's currently in my shop.  I think I am going to use this apron as a pattern for the next set of aprons that I do.

We also found this great antique sewing cabinet.  It was so beautiful I couldn't help but drool.  My Mother and Father-in-law were so kind and bought it for us.  I have it up in my guest room right now.  It looks so nice, thank you guys so much!!!

Well I have been working hard but not getting to much done lately on my projects.  My Mom however has been busting out the birdhouses.  She brought out 2 more today that I just posted on Etsy, and they are beautiful.  

For my part I have been knitting in my spare crafting time this week, and I am just not very fast.  Currently I am working on a cozy for my work coffee cup.  We have a coffee system called Flavia and that machine pumps out the hottest liquid ever.  You practically singe your fingers trying to get the cup back to your desk :)

I have also been spending a lot of time lately looking out at my neighbors garden.  It's so pretty and she has this one pink Phlox that captures my eye every time I look out.  It really inspires me to want to work on my yard more this summer!

I do have one really pretty white phlox bush that I just love.  It has a very nice light fragrance.
