Makeover Monday: 8/23


I started with some plain old white cotton,
~*~and added a smidge of this beautiful shimmery aqua thread that I found at Hobby Lobby in PA. We don't have Hobby Lobby here :(
~*~

Viola~ A new shape! It reminds me of antique inkwells, and was inspired by ancient Native American basket weaving and pottery. It is the perfect size for a special pen or a couple of crochet hooks. Perhaps even a small bouquet of dried wildflowers. Look for it in sosorosey soon!

Happy Monday! Boy did I have a fun vacation last week. Sophie and I were spoiled absolutely rotten by my folks. In addition to the neighborhood swimming pool and practically every restaurant in and around Gettysburg, we went to a miniature horse farm, a historic round barn, a Pennsylvania Dutch market, the South Mountain Fair, and an Amish flower drying shed. We did a horse and buggy trip around historic downtown, and climbed a gargantuan observation tower at one of the battlefields. I also had two whole days to go thrifting and antiquing all by myself- it was pure heaven and I have TONS of new goodies to list in both shops. That's it for me... what's new with YOU? I've missed you!
