Antique lace, vintage buttons & laundered dropcloth...
it doesn't get much better than that!

And of course, some thread and a sewing machine are all it takes
to create a couple of wonderful treasure organizers!

WHEW!!! I procrastinated WAY too long on these two sweeties.
Every time I make one, I'm reminded how very difficult they are!
But I finally finished these for two sweet customers and so hope that
they are pleased with and love them.

The organizers are about 22" wide and about 46" long. Each pocket is lined
and pleated so each one can hold a multitude of treasures. You could display your
mother's strand of pearls draping out of one pocket with your favorite hankies
tucked inside as well. Use the top to display your beautiful pin collection.
Add treasured cards from loved ones to another pocket. Hang your grandmother's
wire rimmed glasses on one of the pockets and fill it with more goodies that remind
you of her. You get the idea, right? This organizer is to display your treasures
and hang where you can see it each and every day...and smile.

Pockets in takes me forever to choose just the perfect laces and buttons!

I also wanted to share a magazine that's coming out this month that
I know we will all love....Fifi's newest Prairie Style!!!!
Keep your eyes peeled, I know I am ~

I also wanted to show you what I found last week at my local Walmart!!
I've been wanting to try growing succulents and they had the
most wonderful variety pack for just 9.98!!!
I did buy some special potting soil that drains well too.
The other plants were lavender but I put those back...
I'll get them next trip!!!

PLUS...look what I found on an end cap in the craft department of Walmart...
Waverly Chalk Paint!!!
PLUS it's only 5.97 for an 8 oz. bottle. They also had some antiquing finishes
but I didn't buy any of those. I may go back for some though!!
The two colors I brought home were called "Plaster" and "Ballet Slipper"
How can you NOT buy a shade called "Ballet Slipper"???????

One last photo for you just because I love it so....
Don't you love this display? Hydrangeas are so gorgeous to me
and those doors are AMAZING!

I know I promised to share some photos of two magazines that I recently purchased
that I thought you would love but I just haven't taken the time to take the pics.

One is latest issue of Romantic Country Summer 2015....
And the other is Romantic Homes May issue ~
They are both just beautiful!!!
I'll try to take some photos to share because
I just know you will love them both.

Noah is out of school this week for Spring Break and it is ALWAYS
heavenly for me because I love staying up late and sleeping late as well.
My clock is weird but I just can't help it!

I hope you are having a wonderful week...
Spring has definitely arrived here!
We already need to cut our grass
for the second time.

Happy Wednesday precious friends and I thank you always for visiting me here!

hugs and love,

Hi Dawn,
Oh my how I love those pretty organizers. I can see all the work that went into creating them and the results are amazing.
Never tried growing suculents but I do love how they look.
Have a beautiful week and enjoy the beginning of Spring.

Such lovely organizers! You are so amazing with your sewing (and everything else you create)! Not weird to me at all about your sleep habits because I prefer to go to bed late and wake up late except I get to do that only on weekends when I am not working.

How funny- I found you because I was looking for anyone else who has tried that Waverly chalk paint from Walmart. I found it and bought it today, just like you (only I bought Celery green and white wax).
Love your organizers- they are just beautiful!

Oh my oh my oh my! I just adore these . . and I can see WHY they are so much work! I LOVE the idea of putting vintage pins at the top. I have a decent collection but can never figure out how to display them.

marda said...

Oh my Dawn, but your organizers are just perfection. I know your two customers will just love them
I'll watch for the latest Prairie
Style, still have the last one.
I also have the two magazines you mentioned, was just looking at them again last evening. Loads of wonderful pictures.
p.s. If one of your customers said no thanks to your organizer...I'LL BUY IT!!!
