  57. Oh wow...I would love to have all of that....

    I've just started to do a bedroom in shabby...and that would be a major help in decorating. I used to have a couple of old baby dresses but they fell apart (even after hand washing) so I made new ones out of muslin and embroidered little flowers across the top.

    I have them hanging in my bathroom.

    Hope my comment jumps up to be chosen....yes...

  75. What a pleasant surprise! I just received my Etsy order from your shop, and then to realize you live in my "neck of the woods" AND that you're a fellow Christian! I'm so delighted!

    Also, I'm inspired and intrigued by your blog. My daughter has encouraged me in the past to try my hand at blogging, but I'm something of a hermit. Your gentle descriptions of vintage items,your pastoral pursuits, and your crafting projects are fascinating and show me it is possible to share in positive manner, even with folks you haven't met. I may get brave yet!

    I didn't know about your local vintage store--I look forward to visiting soon!

    Best wishes,
    Victoria (fellow Etsy seller)
