finding treasures and a book winner!

9.12.2011

Just thought I'd pop in today to show you a few fun things I found at an estate sale over the weekend:

[vintage arabia enamel bowl]

[something to hang on the awkward space next to the window in the kitchen]

Not at the estate sale, but still really cool, this lovely stack of fabrics, just waiting to be cut into:

[hometown by sweetwater for moda, candy trees by julia rothman for cloud 9 fabrics]

And to announce the Sewing for Boys book winner!  I was so thrilled with everyone's response, sounds like this book will be an awesome tool for all you moms (aunts, grandmas, too) with boys (and in some cases lots of boys!). So from the top of the heap:

  7. Your treasures are great finds- I love Arabia stuff. Not sure what the springy spoon does- a sort of whisk maybe? It is really interesting! and a nice cream, gren, red colour grouping

    I had an aunt who would put dirty words in her letters to her kids to see if they actually read them or just cashed the cheque she (boob)sent them :)

    she was totally fun!

  12. I have a little obsession with cherries, so I love that bowl! I'm wondering what the utensil with the green handle is used for? Is it like a whisk kinda thingy? Either way it's pretty cool looking! Can't wait for the tutorial tomorrow!
