French Sugar Parisian Upcycled SHOES!!!!!

Brown canvas espadrille's with vintage lace

I've been accumalating these shoes for month's now. So when I found these lovely brown espadrille's, I knew it was time to get out the old "glue-gun" and start decorating!  So I grabbed my box of vintage lace, bought some new ribbon and had-at-it!  All is now posted on Etsy. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them!

French Sugar Parisian Upcycled Romantic Floral Print and Cotton Lace Dress - $110.00

I really enjoyed creating this garment. And it's the last of this lovely floral print. I just adore this print and wish I had yards and yards of it. But long skirts only have so much yardage and I wanted to make the most of it. Creating three garments was great but this garment really made my day!  I just posted it on Etsy! Enjoy!

French Sugar Parisian Upcycled Vests

When my cat Samantha passed-away last Monday - I just dove into sewing and crocheting to keep my mind occupied and to stop crying. These are the results. I hope you enjoy them. I just posted them on Etsy.




Back to work after a few weeks off!

I'll be posting some new items that I just finished on my next post.
For the past few weeks I took off from the blog and sewing.  I've been nursing my very old Norwegian Forest Cat. My daughter and myself  had her for 13 of her 16 years on this planet. After many trips to the vet - it was obvious that she wasn't going to make it. Like my Vet said - there is no cure for "old age"!  It's so quiet in the house now that I find I leave on any vehicle of noise to fill the void. She'll be forever in my heart and soul. I'm not much of a "animal" person and have been all my life and I really don't know why. We had a dog growning up but I really didn't feel connected to her.  But this fuzzy cat just took my heart and ran away with it. She gave me so much pleasure and made me laugh all the time. As she rapidly grew older, she actually by-passed me in age and I would tell people- "we're just two old-ladies hanging-out"!
I miss you so much it hurts, Samantha!

I'll see you in heaven!
