Colors of Grey...

 Little Jerry is out in the garden praying for his vegetables to pierce the ground.  Surely all this sunshine will help them surface. Something has to happen soon. There are only two pages left in the book.

Just as soon as I unloaded the groceries I had this lovely package I had just purchased from Vintage Grey waiting for me. My daughter sat waiting anxiously beside me begging me to open it. She knew I had to take pictures of the packaging first. 

Gorgeous details. 

Heather's eye for color is remarkable.

These pictures do not even do it justice.

My excitement in showing you her work far outweighed the need to iron it.

Hmm...I feel another collection coming on. Heather this is just beautiful.

Other recent arrivals are few.

A mint collection of Tiny Tales that jumped right into my cart on Etsy!

Images I cannot wait to scan.

Perhaps my favorite find in a while is this perfectly pink Wilendur tablecloth that was a steal. I love to find these listed under floral tablecloths instead of the more popular Wilendur label. Yards and yards of fantastic color. Last time I found one like this I cover a chair in it....what can I do with this one?

Heather's work is just gorgeous. You certainly have a beautiful piece. Your latest tablecloth has amazing potential. Can't wait to see what you do with it. You're such a tease with those sweet books. Anxious to see graphics.

Heather makes some beautiful things and it's always fun to see what others create with their vintage linens.

Wondering what you'll be doing with those pink roses... :-)

Hurry up and turn the page. I'm worrying about little Jerry, he looks so sad...8+(

Ahh Hah! I saw that towel in Heather's shop, and wondered WHO bought it! I love it!
And don't even get me started on sweet little story books! I can never have too many. On a different note...The TITLE OF THIS POST brings to mind another book. One that's not so innocent! Haha
I have about 20 pages to go! ;)

I have been checking out Heather's shop as well and agree about her eye for color. I may need to get one for my towel rack that all are forbidden to touch.....

Love those little books- you're lucky I didn't see them first on Etsy!
And I love searching for things on Ebay under other names, too- sometimes you can find a steal when someone hasn't done their research!

What an eye-catching post! The towel from Heather is to die for! Beautiful work.
I loved your tutorial about your cartoon Tom & Jerry tag. You are as good with paper as you are with fabric.
ps I have to admit that I've fallen in love with little Jerry! He is so cute.

Heather's does do beautiful work. You have found some beautiful things. You have a good eye as well. I can not wait to see what you are going to create with your gorgeous pink rose table cloth.

Hello dear friend!
Stopped by to say hi and leave a hug.
