Snippets Of Life This Week...

There's been a whole lotta randomness here this week, 
bouncing from one project and event to the next.

Here's a little bit of what's been happening via my Instagram shots...

Working on embroidery still

Also, embellished this bag with another trailer applique and some buttons

Vintage campers are the "project du jour" lately because this is...
Miss Maggie was sick this week

 but now she's feeling better!

Here's what happened when I planned on going to bed one night...
forgot to put the sheets on earlier in the day!!  Ugh.  Typical.
On a high note, I am loving the new curtains I made recently 
from vintage table cloths!

Had another meeting with my local decorating client 
to discuss her kitchen plans and colors...
This is part of what I do in the business side of my life, Cottage Industry
for those not familiar.  Always enjoy discussing decorating plans!


Here's a little peek into my "office" these days, which is just a side table in the living room.  All the days projects congregate here it seems.

Found some time for crafting here and there
 {this is my craft and sewing space in the basement}

Made these magnets out of vintage milk caps just the other night...

And here we are at Friday, another week flown by!  
This pace is fine though, I'd like to bypass winter in Chicago altogether!

What have you been up to?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

XO,
Stacey

Glad your little one is feeling better! Love the embroidery! I'm an embroiderer myself so I appreciate the time it takes! Love the milk cap magnets!

loved this peek into your week, and i think it is a charming life you have made for yourself, my friend. filled with pretty things, creativity, nurturance, and productivity. i have been too cold to get much done this week--hardly outta my pjs. and not an ounce of guilt.

Sorry Miss Maggie was sick. Our newest granddaughter is named Maggie and she's been under the weather, too. We need sunshine and warm weather, and SOON!

Cute magnets!

thanks for sharing! I love your little trailer projects!

My grands move away in a couple days. I've been spending lots of time with them but managing to sneak in some decorating and crafting here and there. ♥

Love your fabric/embroidery trailers!! I've been on a trailer embroidering streak this week too. Found a copy of Flea Market Decor and was happy to find such a photo heavy feature! Lovely. Hope Miss Maggie is back to her sweet self. :)

Looks like a good week! Except for the little dolly being sick :( We've had that here too - no fun.
Love those magnets - I've had some old milk tops for years and never knew for sure what to do with them. They are plain - no words on them. Maybe I will stamp them and make them into magnets.

Oh My! so glad I am NOT the only one! ref: unmade bed... I did this the other day, pulled the sheets to be laundered... and decided to let the mattress breath for a couple hours which turn into all day and then time for the hubby & I to retire... only to walk into a room with a naked bed & clean sheets hanging over the footboard! lol!'
Luv you lil trailer stitchery and Miss Maggie's sweet channel jacket.

Glad your little one is feeling better. To cute about the light switch... that sums it up!

Have a great week.

Your embroidery and projects are all fabulous! Sorry your baby was sick...those nasty bugs are really going around here (Chicago area). I'm sick right now myself. And yeah, I'd love to bypass winter here. Hate it!

Really loved the vintage tablecloth curtains. These tablecloths seem to find me, mostly at rummage sales, and I never thought to use them this way. Great excuse for snuggling when the small one is sick. Hope she is better soon. Penny

I love your embroidery! Your end table looks like my coffee table and as hard as I try I can't seem to change that!
