Mini Dress Form

This darling dress form is made form felted wool ( I use as many recycled materials as I can). It has a very rich look and feel. It is 9" high from base to top and the form itself is 5" high, and aprox 3" across the shoulder. It is decorated with hand crafted ribbon roses.
These ribbon roses are made from pink satin ribbon, and rayon seam binding, the leaves are made from variegated ribbon. The little jewel that is hanging down from the shoulder is part of an earring that I added a freshwater pink pearl and a crystal to. (see it in the first picture) I also added a semi precious stone to the base of the ribbons that are hanging down from the waist.
The little MOP button is so precious, I use vintage buttons where ever I can. The small lace medallion on the right bottom is vintage as well. The larger flower on the left is made from silk and hand dyed to look like a spring blossom.

I had such fun making the base, it is a vintage wooden thread spool, I don't know if you get thread on a wooden spool any more. I painted it and covered the center part with lining material
and made a ruffle of the same material to cover the base. The bow is recycled lace, and the rose is made from wired ribbon.
I am offering this darling dress form for the modest price of $18.95 plus S.H of $4.50

Party Hat Lampshade Deux

Here it is my new party hat lampshade. It is so cute just 4 1/2" high and 2 3/4" across the top 5" across the bottom. It is all spring with pink,green, and yellow. It is covered with hand crafted ribbon flowers, the shade itself is covered in a lovely cream color lace and trimmed with a lovely green beaded trim.
This picture really shows off the center flower, notice the organdy ribbon flower as the center of this loop Rosette. Organdy ribbon is tucked here and there to give it that fairy dust look.

This is the left side, don't you love the pink flower with the small yellow ones accenting it. The lace that is woven thru out it is from England, a wonderful 100% cotton.
We have the right side here a bit different from the left it shows how it all meets in the back. I love the striped organdy ribbon that is woven in with the lace. It would make a fun gift for that girlie girl, or add it to your own decor.
You can buy it now for only $22.95 plus S&H of $4.00

Cute Vintage Peddlers Packs

I think this is the cutest little pack of good stuff. It has 8 different cute things, some for sewing, some are vintage, all are quite use able in your crafting. The color cordinated tags could also be used in your crafting or scrapbooking.
This is a close up of the package with the blue ribbon. you can see the porcelain roses and the beads and buttons.
Each pack have the same items.
I am in love with the pink one of course. The pink porcelain roses would be so cute on just about anything. Notice the clothespin with the vintage lace, the tag says the amount of lace on the pin. There is a pack of buttons, and 2 packs of beads, also their is a vintage button card, and a small battenburg doily
The packs are$8.75 each + S.H. of $3.00 ea. Contact me thru the comments or my E-mail that is on my side bar.

Velvet Strawberries

These cute lil guys are created from my hand dyed velvet. The one on the left is shades of pink with a touch of lavender. The one on the right is pale peach tones. I hand sewed all the seed beads on, they match the color of the berry. The berries are about 3" long. and 2" across.
You can see the lace cap on this pink one, this lace is so beautiful it is from England, I have a few pieces of it and use it sparingly.

I used organdy ribbon for the cap of this one, and the green is rayon seam binding. I love the rayon seam binding it is soft like silk ribbon but not as spendie. These berries can be hung from a hook or just put in a pretty container and look cute.
They are all wrapped up in the cello bags ready for their trip to your house.
Each berry is $8.25 + S.H of 3.00 If you buy more than one thing I can lessen the shipping a bit.

Pastel cupcakes Baby Cakes

I am crazy about these cupcakes, I call them "Baby Cakes" a nick-name I had ages ago. They are packaged so cute in the cellophane bags, just like you would get at the bakery, only with a header and tag labels. These can be made in any color, if you have a preference. I made the pinks and blues because those colors just make me happy.
I used pink gingham for the base on this one with the pretty pink and white calico for the cake part. It is trimmed with white lace, with a ribbon flower pansy on top with green leaves.

Again the gingham for the base, this time in blue with the tiny leaf print for the cake in blues. White lace trim with a yellow yo yo topped by blue berries, and green leaves.

A mix of the pink and blue here, with a different lace trim with embroidery thread thread tied around it. This one is topped by a pink ribbon rose and a couple of tiny white roses and green leaves. ( the white roses are on the back.)
The cupcakes are aprox. 3 1/2" high and 6" across the top from the base of the cup part on one side to the base on the other side, it is about 10" around the center.

Enjoy your"Baby Cakes" cupcakes for just $13.95 + S.H. of $4.75
I can make them in different colors and fabric if you have a special request.

Party Hat Lamp Shade

This lamp shade is for a flame type bulb. It is so VERY cute, all pink, cream, and green. The ribbon flowers are make of organdy ribbon, and satin ribbon, the leaves are rayon binding and satin ribbon. The shade is covered in a very nice lace that I recycled from a garage sale find. I think the lace that is woven in with the pink ribbon is very pretty it is 100% cotton also recycled. recycling to me is part of being green and I do as much of it as I can.
I like how this close up shows the cream colored fushias that are hanging from seed beads. You can see the tiny pink ribbon rose peeking out under the lace. The shade is 5 and 3/4 inches tall, by 3" across the top and 5" across the bottom.
This darling lamp shade can adorn your accent lamp for just $24.95 + S.H of $ 4.75
