new item for sale on my ETSY page!

I am really excited about how these are turning out! I sew a pillow, add a cool vintage family photo, embroider, add emebllishments, and that's it!

I am offering this as a custom item, so I can use any photo or color scheme to make a pillow to fit any decor or preference.

Another idea I am toying with is doing this on a flat piece of fabric, embroidering only then framing. I think I will try that in my own home first and see how it turns out!

BOND- not the movie!

My pilates instructor has this great cd she plays and I really love it! It's four women who make up a string quartet, and they play awesome music (yes, including the Bond movie theme).

Check it out- its great for pilates, yoga, or during a dinner party!

So, I recently wore my fascinator (headband style) for the third time and people always ask me about it. I wore one to my friend Elisabeth's wedding and everyone wanted to know where to get one! They are easy to make, but I got mine on - just type fascinator in the search line and you will see hundreds to choose from! Here is a photo of a cute peacock one on a comb that you can find on in the tiedandfeathered shop.

These used to be common in the days of hats and are soooooo cute! Don't wear one if you're not okay with people noticing your unique and girly style!!!!

Vintage style Valentines!

I found these cute press-out vintage style Valentines at Borders this weekend. They are so sweet and cute! Beware- they don't come with enough envelopes, so make sure to buy extras.
At only $4.99, they are a cheap way to tell everyone you love them this year!
