Little Doll Lois, Mom's Pillow and News

Isn't she adorable! I got her for $4 at the Alemany Flea Market this weekend. Her name is Lois (named after you know who) and she looks perfect in her room. Also, I made the pillow you see below for my mom to go in the blue and white guest bedroom. She gave me this tea towel and I know how much she loved it, so I wanted to make it into something for her. It think it would be fun to make another pillow with this fabric or this one to match the blue one since the guest bedroom also has splashes of red. This was my first sewing experience with any kind of fringe. It was fun and easier than I thought it would be to make it. I'm also going to make a pillow for Lois with her name on it later this week.

In other news, I'm working on a vintage etsy shop to sell all kinds of vintage things with my mom--jewelry, vintage fabric and notions, books, etc. So I'll let you know when it's up. Also, Lisa has decided to close The Pickled Hutch in Pacifica and join a friend in a new venture at her shop, Willa Home, in Burlingame. I know this will be a positive experience for Lisa. Wish her luck over at her blog, or better yet, stop into the shop and whish her luck in person while you take advantage of the amazing sale she's having!
