There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends.
I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! This post has lots of photos so please be patient for the upload.
Here are some vintage linen hand towels I embellished with vintage lace and buttons. These lovelies will be posted in my Etsy store this weekend.

Here are two photos of our antique window collection. I just love the old windows!

The following photos are some of what I am calling my vintage stash.

This is a shadow box I made using a vintage image, lace, bottle, and jewelry. This is one of the August design projects for the Shabby Cottage Studio.

I am planning on listing a LOT of fabrics from my collection in the next couple of weeks. So please check back often as I will provide information on the listings.
Hope everyone has a great and safe weekend!
Hugs, Sharon
