Forgotten lace, old buttons and humble fabrics ~

I'd been wanting to get back into the studio and
put together a single treasure pocket similar to my large ones...
and I FINALLY did!

It's funny how I drift away from making things for awhile but then
when I get back to it, I love is SO MUCH!

Here's the first one that I's sold but I still wanted to
share it with you. I even stuffed it with a few of my own treasures too.
A roll of sheet music, antique baby photograph, rhinestone pin, an old baby shoe
and a teeny bundle of vanilla roses. It's simple really, but you get the idea.
I stuffed the bottom of the pocket with sewing pattern tissue
to lift the items up but it could easily just be filled with even
more goodies!

I'm also finishing up another Treasure Pocket Organizer.
These take time, just because I want each piece of lace, each button and
their placement to be just right (well, in my mind anyway!)
This one is sold as well but it's fun to see in-progress photos.

Sweet old lace, pressed and waiting for a new be even more beautiful!

More lace really have to have a ton of stuff to make pretty things, I mean it!
You can't create without a wonderful supply to choose from.

And guess what else has been going on around here?
This precious girl...
this sweet baby, our granddaughter Clara started FIRST GRADE
this past Monday!!
She's so excited!! But I'm sure, since it's Friday and
this was her first week back, she'll be exhausted tonight.
And don't worry about our kids starting back so early ~
Every six weeks, they get a full week off AND two weeks at Christmas!
It's a great schedule and works out so well for the students and the teachers.

AND this goob...our sweet baby Noah...
now 17 years old, started his SENIOR year of high school!!!
And what's funny? This is a photo from last year.
He's growing his hair out and has a BEARD!!!
Someone at school told him yesterday, "Hey man, you look like Jesus"
HAHA! I told Noah, what a compliment!
Where has the time gone?

I hope you're having a wonderful summer and staying cool.
You realize we will blink and it will be Fall!

Thank you always, always for stopping by to see me ~
hugs and love,

Such beautiful creations. I so enjoy looking at them. We are finally having pretty weather here, it's either rains for days or is blistering hot. I think we are going to have a early fall. the robins and crows are already coming through. I too am looking forward to fall, but do not like 0 degree weather. I can't imagine your winters.

These are so beautiful -- I love the idea of the large one as well. Can't believe that school is starting already -- poor babies! I remember the days when school started AFTER Labor Day. Time sure does fly - agreed.

That pocket is so pretty, Dawn! I am still working on embellishing my shoe organizer that I am using in my craft/sewing room. I wait until I find trims and things that catch my eye and then I add to it.

I can't believe Clara is such a big girl! I remember when you were posting her baby pictures! I have a hard enough time dealing with my own granddaughter turning 5 last month. Her new baby sister will be here in a few more weeks, though, and we are all looking forward to that.

Awe, the kids are so sweet! I have a bunch of beautiful scarves that color that I don't know what to do with. I think I might try to make a 'no sew' version! Thanks for the inspiration. Love, Deb (
