I changed the top of a vintage cabinet in my studio. I have a passion for miniature
chairs. They are not dollhouse miniatures, but rather play scale. I am not
sure how all of this came about, but whenever I see a cute tiny chair I am just
drawn to it.
I love to be surrounded by things that inspire me. Drawings of historical homes,
bits of favorite fabric and other little things that just make my heart happy.
When I get started on a sewing project there are two things that I never can
find ~ the pin cushion and the scissors. I have the unfortunate knack of
setting them down somewhere and walking away and then forgetting where
I put them. I must have ADD.
I changed things up a bit in the mini hutch on my work table. I love this
little hutch so much. As you may recall, David bought it for me a couple
of Christmas's ago. It is one of my favorite things because it is little and cute
and filled with bits of things I love.
Maybe if I hang pincushions from drawer knobs I will never be without.
The last time David and I went to a local antique mall, David slipped away and
bought me this cute little glass Scottie. He knew I would love it and of course
I do! It is now filled with little buttons I have collected.
Of all the Beatrix Potter books, this one has always been a favorite of mine.
I suppose it's because I enjoy sewing. I have not sewn clothing for myself
since I was in college, but now I love to quilt and make curtains and little
things for around the cottage.
Well that's it for today. It's lovely outside. I can actually go out and do
some gardening which I have been longing to do. Have a safe and a
Happy St Patrick's Day!
Y'all know where Bentley is don't you? If you guessed
in that big comfy chair in my studio you guessed correctly!
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
