309: littleneck and the vintage fabric

Well, hey there!

Ahhh, sunny day again today.

I haven't been sleeping well the last couple of nights. Last night, I had that 'filet-o-fish' commercial stuck in my head. At least I was entertained.

Wanna have a look-see at some new secondhand scores?

Of course you do.

Vintage home dec plus brown linen blend:

Supercute oldschool quilting fabric (love the colors):

 Awesome blush-bud bias binding (aw, yeah) and pink teeny-weeny baby rickrack:

Love that gold plastic bow. Love it.

Oooh, what's this?:

Some kind of beaded netting?

oooh! a vintage collar!

Luckily I have a vintage-sized neck.

I'll need to clean it and repair the closure, but hopefully it will be sturdy enough to take some wear!

Some spring-colored ginghams and a cute floral:

Isn't this perfect? Gold, salmon, teal, chocolate... >sigh<

I have so many posts I want to write! Lots more thrift scores, a gorgeous bag someone made for me out of Sugar Snap, some rust photos from a recent visit with some fellow bloggers, a stirring pile of art I found in the street, a project I have in mind using denim in a way that is not horrifying...all coming up.

Thank you, still and again, for your continued love and support regarding my brother's death. I have to admit, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed about responding to the cards and emails- so please give me some time. I am so touched by your caring. I feel blessed by it.

My good friend Katie brought me some homemade bread and strawberry-rhubarb jam the other day. Oh my god, yum. I , um, well, I ate the entire loaf in 3 days. By. My. Self. So good! It was Light Wheat from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day book. (thank you , sweetie! xo)

Some random questions for you:

Are you watching American Idol like I am?

Reading anything good?

Music recommendations?

Do you work out?

When do you feel most creative?
