Welcome To My New Blog!

 Welcome to my new blog! I am so excited to have another blog besides my doll blog. I'll be using this blog to share my crafting and thrifting adventures and also for sharing items I am working on for  my new Etsy shop "Tattered Treasures". It's not open yet, I'm still working on some cute little things to fill it up with. I'll share the link to it as soon as it's open! It's going to have shabby/ vintage/ chic /romantic style things to decorate your home. Also seasonal stuff. I just love sewing and crafting seasonal items!!

 With all the Heart crafting going on in blogland this month it really put me in the mood to make some heart garland. Just playing around with these little hearts here that I created from felt and warm and natural batting that's been coffee stained for a vintage look...

 Haven't sewn any of it together yet, still playing around with them and trying to decide what I want to embellish them with... They still need some vintage buttons and pearl seed beads...
I just discovered Sugarlump Studios recently. Her creations are gorgeous! If you've never been there go check it out! ;) So much inspiration!

 I also started making these adorable little muslin bunny rabbits. They are going to sit in little Easter baskets made from peat pots. ( I'm having a hard time finding peat pots in my area though, all I find are the little ones with dirt already in them..) I'll have to go out and check again... I think they are going to be so cute! I will share when they are done! It's kinda late to be starting Easter stuff for Etsy now so I don't know if I will put them in the shop or not.... I may end up keeping them or giving them to family.

 Also working on these mini dress forms for the new shop. It's going to be fun embellishing these too!

Another Idea I had was making a few different types of wings, these are one type. They are going to be embellished with fabric flowers and seam binding ribbon in the center. I think they will look pretty once they are finished... they look kind of weird in this pic. lol

Well I hope you enjoyed getting a sneak peek at some of the things I am working on!

Have a blessed day,


  1. love your sewn things. did you make those dress forms yourself???

    going to check out your other blog.


  2. Pattie, I'm your first follower...How fun is that!!! I am having a dress form linky Party March 11th, you don't have to have a big dress form to join, I think you should do a post on those adorable little dress forms and link them up. If you don't know how to link a blog post just write to me when your post is up and I can link it for you. You have great creations, I think you will be a real hit. There is a blog called Debbiedoos that has newbie Mondays where new bloggers link up and get tons of followers. She is having some blog problems right now, but check her out next week. Good luck!
