You know how you futz around all night doing stuff you don't need to be doing, and avoiding what you really need to get done. Yeah. Well, that was tonight. I ordered a canvas print that I'd bought from Canvas on Demand through Groupon. Yeah, it should be pretty cool. And of course, I had to Wiki the location, Delfshaven. Well, you know why. And then I ordered 5 prints of a family photo I had photoshopped for my cousin...6 months ago. Because that really had to get done tonight. But most importantly, I did manage to get photos of my 3 inchie embroidery swap that I finished last night, that's going to Silver Bella in three sleeps. A week or so ago I had finished my banner swap and wondered what to do for the 3 inchie... Since I've never done embroidery, I didn't have an arsenal to chose from. One night while bloghopping, I saw this girl, and my heart went pitter patter when I saw this beautiful dress. Allison at Dishy Vintage lives right down the road from me and was kind enough to let me use her design. And so I made this:
There are 12 girls in the swap and I'm so excited to see what the others created. I swing between panic and pride at any given moment. I learned, though, three years ago - get in the swaps after seeing so many beautiful art pieces, especially Debe's recipe book that was amazing. I participated in three this year - vintage trims, banner and 3 inchie... Thanks, Allison for letting me use your design.
Made a quick trip to Anthropologie tonight, looking for a teacup for my teacup fairy project. I know my mother has several beautiful dainty cups in one of the boxes in my garage but had no interest in searching. I did find this, with the scallop, I think will do just nicely. And just like Target, I can't get out of that store for less than $100 - too many pretties to buy. And a few pics to snap.
