Collecting Collections

How many of you out there collect different things? It's said that having more than two of similar items starts a collection. Well then I am surrounded by my collections of all sorts and so I decided to share with you some of the things I collect.

Today its shoes, not the ones you wear but miniatures and shoe trees.

Here are a few miniatures shoes which I may eventually turn into pin cushion or something similar and an enamel jug of shoe trees. Oh by the way I collect enamelware too, will have to show that later.

4th and final March Madness give-away

It's hippity-hoppity into my 4th and final weekly March Madness give-away.

This week you could be the winner of one of my aged bunnies. I dyed the calico in a paintwash then sewed my "vintage style" bunny. Next he was given my aging process, then little embroidered features and finally a vintage organza ribbon was wrapped around his neck in a pretty bow. Bunny -hop would look great propped up amongst your Eastery displays.

If you would like to be in the draw for one of my simple "vintage" bunnies, just leave a comment (make sure I have your email) and you could be the lucky winner.
