Show and Tell Monday

Well another Monday and another start to a new week. Thought I would include a postcard received re a fabric sale at Sue Foster fabrics in Emsworth, a lovely coastal village about 17 miles away. I thought this represented MMP well.

The blue and white bag is this weeks make. Made in the shabby chic crazy patchwork style, embellished with lace, butterfly sequins and a flower with a blue heart bead for the center.

These were a find at the local car boot sale, thought with repainting and distressing, perhaps filled with flowers and pot-pourri they would be transformed.

  5. Caroline,
    I can't wait to see how the little lanterns turn out. They are so cute now they could only be spectacular later. I went to that site you sent me (Joanna Sheen) and she offers beautiful vintage and victorian art on cd's. I hope to be able to buy some soon.
