A tisket a tasket...


Easter baskets on my mind.  Warm weather on the horizon. Pastel eggs and Spring bounty. Well, that and a sweet place to place a few finds.


It didn't take long to pair Meri's applique with Donna's amazing feed sack fabrics.


Vintage buttons and trims. Lined with vintage leftovers.


Linen, scallops and bunnies.


Canvas, embroidery and buttons.


Patchwork, stitches and rick rack.  

These little buckets are so fun and easy I can't wait to do more.

I so knew you were the right person to send those appliques to. Your little buckets are just adorable sweetie. Let me know if you ever need more appliques, as I scanned them and that's how I printed them for you. I've got enough wooden hangers cut out for three, but right now I can only make two for you as someone else has asked for one. What colors would you like those two to be? Keep in mind these will be sized to actually hold children's clothing, but I can make dozens of smaller ones just for looks and display. I've got more goodies for you, too, but I think I'll wait a bit just so you don't start expecting things from me...wink, wink ;o)

Love ya'
Meri
