New at Our Cottage Garden Boutique

Just a quick note to let you see some of the cute things I just posted at Our Cottage Garden. They just make my heart sing and I thought they might "sing" to some of my blogging buddies as well.

This is a precious vintage pincushion I found while out antiquing a couple of weeks ago. Can you even believe how cute it is???? Can you even believe I would sell it????

This is a vintage hanky box which I repurposed as a sewing box after I dolled it up with some great vintage wallpaper, antique millinery, trim, and then filled it up with great notions and a little bit of whatnot!

Lovin' the whatnot, especially this little bisque basket pincushion!

The top got a beautiful vintage millinery rose along with some of Heather's FABULOUS wide silk ribbon.

This little bisque doll is from Japan, circa 1920 or 30. She was in need of some clothing, so I used antique lace and old trim from the 1920's which I hoard like a mizer. I'm surprised I pried a couple of inches out of my little hand to make the bottom of the skirt! I think she is just precious with her little pouty face and pretty dress (and socks and Mary Janes, of course!).

Hope you are all having a great weekend! I am going to be playing outside with my family, so cross your fingers that the weather cooperates!
Until next time,

Pin It!

  11. Hello Judy! Hey I'm so glad you visited me and left a comment, because funny thing is I've had your ebay shop listed in my ebay favorites for a long time and never knew you had a blog! And you live in Colorado too! Wow, where've I been? I know - I must be living under a rock - but better late than never yes? I love this hanky box you've revamped and I see you are a fan of Heather's lovely shoppe too - another thing we have in common :). Well count me in as an avid reader from now on-
