Trash to Treasure - New Scarves

These scaves are made from designer fabric sample books. Normally when the material is no longer available the books get thrown away. The fabric has never been used other than to show off fabric in bite size pieces. My favorite decorating place Ace Glass and Decorating saves the books for me. I take the fabric from the books and prepare it by cutting it into strips. I start by picking a color and build on that theme. These one of a kind scarves are assembled on a sewing machine. The ends are then hand sewn and embellished with fancy yarns or vintage buttons.

Girl Time

Look up to the sky...
What a wonderful day at the Garden in the Woods. It was last Saturday already and my daughter and I took a trek over to Framingham for a new adventure. It has been on my to do list since June and in the last week i finally got there. What a wonderful adventure we had. We wandered the forest and found a wonderful place to make a fairy house.
There were only a few couples wandering around. It felt like a magical experience being in such a wonderful place. It also gave my daughter and I some time together in nature loving every minute of the experience. Surprises around every corner.
Try a new experience today and discover your bliss.
