Today’s post is more clean up…I am wrapping up one overdue project today…and starting 3 more? No, make that 4!
Anyway today for you all some pictures from life here at Shiloah Cottage, home of Blue Nickel Studios and Miss Mabel Studio (Linda has been posting a ton of pictures of our life here…so she has more I bet)
Here is a rooster detail from the tablecloth…I love our vintage stuff here at Shiloah Cottage (yes, I named our home…so bourgeois, I know!) I used to call it Shiloah Estate here, but if you look at our lawn and the plantings around here…Cottage is the best we can aspire too!
I couldn’t buy this paper in the Asian bookstore….I had to have everything that I was buying for my family already gift-wrapped in it. Honestly, they could have saved time and made money, but this was only for thier FREE gift-wrapping service…So there you go..
Oragami doll from same trip I love some of the packaging that comes out of Asia. These caramel hearts apparently carried the Olympics theme through supporting great victory. The little book to the left featuring Rapunzel came with the hearts….What is that about??
So for today, one last picture…..one with some poppin’ color so you don’t forget where you are….. This is a vintage quilt, that a firend of a friend commissioned me to repair a little and get it quilted. Most of the blocks look to be early 1900’s, but I am fairly certain that the orange sashing was added in the 40’s-60’s perhaps. I will be finishing it up with pink and orange border of a Joel Dewberry print and then having it quilted, then binding it with a scrappy pink/orange combo. This is for the lady’s niece who got married right around Market…..so everyone knew it would be late…that is one of those next projects….
So thanks all for putting up with the lack of posts lately. I should have Random # 2 coming up soon…and some giveaways as since after Market, more stuff is coming, and I am in great need of cleaning up my side of the studio….like that’s something NEW or something!!
