singleton buttons

Diane Gilleland has come up with a very nice tutorial for singleton buttons. Sometimes I find tiny bits of vintage fabric, and this would be such a great way to preserve them.

I'm soooooo... behind in posting the projects I've completed, I hope to remedy that asap. The time I would have taken to post, has been consumed in the garden. What started out as "Lets plant a few tomatoes", has turned into "We've got the space, water, etc. lets go for it." Okay. So here I go.

Minnie's Dresses

I purchased the vintage dresses from Minnie. She kept them because she was going to wear them when she lost her post pregnancy weight. So they hung in her closet all these years. By the way her waist is a whopping 27" now (she's 83). So I collected her story and bought her dresses. I am not going to keep them, my waist was never 24" (even pre-pregnancy). So if you're tiny and love vintage dresses you can find them here.

Hello Spring

Hey Spring, I remember you. It's been awhile.

Now I can put away those winter sweaters, although I have to confess I will miss tights.

I am comforted with the thought that out come the vintage spring dresses.
