Vintage finds and stitching


I found this vintage, printer's type tray at one of our local antique stores.  I have always wanted one, so when I came across this smaller version, I couldn't pass it up! 




It's another fun way to store some of your favorite things!




So, when I found this small box of printer's type it was the perfect combination. 


After sorting through my vintage finds I sewed this little wall hanging, or art quilt or what ever you want to call it.  (It has batting in between the layers).  I love working with a delicate lace over something more substantial like burlap and muslin. 


While taking my photographs outside, I noticed how busy my new little garden friends were on the lavender.  This one was just coming in for a landing! 


Only one more day until the weekend...  
Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I am glad you did. I looked through your wonderful photos. I love the close up of the bee. I scrolled down through your other posts and I love those glass floats, too. I really love that blue milk bottle in one of the photos.
