What I've Been Doin'

I've been busy over here....

sewing napkins and a runner for my table.....

and giving my old sewing basket a quick makeover.....

here's what I started with....a sentimental sewing basket given to me by my mother....and all it need was some primer, white spray paint and some French General fabric....and a bit of twine for good measure....love it.

And I've also been busy updating my website and etsy with these new finds....

green kitchen scale....

Avenue Totes....

a new kitchen towel design....

vintage copper canisters....

and vintage Atlas jars in my favorite shade of aqua.

I'm also working on a little tutorial...hopefully...if it turns out okay I'll share my little project with you.

Happy Wednesday!

  1. You've been a busy gal, Andrea! I LOVE the napkins and table runner you sewed up, and your sewing basket transformation is adorable! It's hard to believe it's the same basket! I'm swooning over your avenue tote, too (sigh)! I wish I had me some shopping money... hopefully soon... :)
    Have a great day!

  17. Andrea - I'm loving your napkins and runner! Are you going to offer those in your shop??? (hint, hint!) The sewing basket transformation is absolutely adorable, girlie! I have a small picnic basket that looks just that and was unsure whether or not I should paint it. NOW I know that I should! You inspired me once again! :)
