I love fabrics, fabric scraps, bits of paper and ephemera.  Oh dear!  Hanging in the apartment is a beautiful wall hanging I put together from newer and vintage fabric scraps.  I love looking at it.  I thought I would share the view.

I have continued to look at houses. I checked out an ADORABLE little cottage-style house this past Thursday. The yard would be perfect. Each little room in the 75-year-old house was perfect. I am being patient. I have to. It may not work out, as these things take time, but it encourages my heart to know that such houses are out there, just waiting for me. I can see it now, filled with vintage treasures, twinkly lights, my coffee pot, and me.

Enjoy this day!


One of the perks of apartment living: residents sometimes leave cast-off treasures at the recycle station for others to find and love. Found yesterday: vintage sewing box crammed full of notions! And the case has that wonderful clean smell like my grandma of Pond’s Cold Cream or something. Clean and pristine. How lucky I am! I sew all the time! #sewing #vintagesewing #sewingnotions #apartmentliving #apartmentlife #thrift
