Christmas and New Years prettiness

I was given some lovely costume related prettiness for Christmas, and I picked up a bit more on my road trip. First, my wonderful in-laws asked me for a wish list, and off of it, they got me…(drumroll here)… And…. I’ll be reviewing all three of these as I use them. Space was limited on the road trip, so all I picked up was these three bits of deliciousness: The mirror has the cutest little wreath motif on the back. It also has some damage, and the tortoiseshell has shrunk, so I’m going to be researching how to conserve it, and blogging about that. Finally, just before Christmas I found these gorgeous embroidered napkins: The handwork is exquisite, and the motifs are all different: I suspect that there was a 6th napkin at some point.  I’ll just have to have 5 person tea parties with this set!

Vintage patterns part 2

Here are the rest of my vintage patterns.  Most I inherited from Grandma or was given by Auntie Artie.   Now I just need the time to sew some of them up, though I have to say, I’m loving some of the commissions I’m working on right now!
