Close-ups


Having been away from my room for one week too long I revisited it through the lens of my camera. At first from afar...see yesterdays post...then close up. These are just a few. I had a lengthy list to choose from. 


My newest pincushion from Beths Bagz.


Tiny tidy ups.


Irmi lamp parts and rain bonnet purses.


Nursery planters (a sweet gift from Joyce of Scraps for Joy) holding toy tea dishes.


Farmer Marx and his wife ready at the door.


Treasured blocks (gift from Fee of Chipper Nelly) resting among the nursery rhymes.


A learning center of sort.


The nursery is buzzing with the Lefton nurses on staff.


The Dennison library has moved into the hoosier and my Lego guard is keeping order.


The flower wreath (Beths Bagz) and rubber squeaks join in the parade of smiles.


Pottery, plastic and mercury glass...anything goes.


An old crayon box holds a load of fabric waiting to be cut.
Flower found here.
Bird clips found here.


Prized 1930's Japanese fabric reproduction sit patiently...almost too pretty to be cut. 
Fabric found at Sew Deerly Loved. It is my fabric shop of choice. Kerri could not be sweeter nor could she have more beautiful fabrics. 

You might have noticed...not a single spun head made it here...I have reserved tomorrows post for the my ever growing collection. You do not want to miss it.

Aaahhh...close ups! It's such fun to get close to your sweet treasures and see the Irmi dolls...the pincushions...Lego man and all of the wonderful old books and all of your treasures...or at least some of them! Can't wait to see what's next. Love the little stacks of fabric and the old wooden box. Everything is special and perfectly kept!

I love all your sweet collectibles. My Grandma always had one of those little rain bonnet plastic purse in her purse. She gave me one and it still has the rain bonnet inside. I love everything you showed. Are you going to show more of your collections? Hope so.

Your vintage finds are all so sweet. I would grab the very same up myself if I ever saw one. I especially loved the little clean up items so darling. I love the lamb face too what could be cuter?
