Hello everyone...hope you're enjoying a
beautiful day ~♥~
Today I've got some farmhouse fresh
ideas to share with you.
A few weeks ago I was out rummaging through
our barn when I came upon a really pretty
antique ebony black door nob...sadly it
had lots of old paint on it.
I right away had an idea for it, so with a little
elbow grease...it's now back to gorgeous!!
It makes a perfect scissor stand for these new "Daisy Scissors"
I just got in....check it out ~ what do you think?
~ Exclusively from Scattered Seed Samplers ~
I only have this one door nob available, and it will be for sale
in my Etsy shoppe hopefully tomorrow.
Not all door nobs will work ~ this one sits nice and flat on a surface.
Plus the inner chamber must be free of any metal obstruction ~
so the scissors slide in & out freely.
~ I absolutely love these pretty Daisy Scissors ~
~ "Fresh Farmfield Find" ~
This special porcelain fence insulator is not nearly as common
as the smaller ones I have available ~ I will also be
listing this set tomorrow in my Etsy Shoppe.
I love the old rusty iron bracket that is still
attached to the insulator.
The bottom is nicely stamped....from Chicago, USA.
Here are some more new scissor styles I just got in yesterday.
This pair is a primitive "Swordfish" with sharp fish blades!
Silver Swordish Scissors.
Checkout these "Primitive Cat Snips".
The one handle hole is a Cat's tail...too cute!
This is how they look when opened.
Today I would like to also share with you two of my favorite
collector books ~ for collecting antique sewing items.
This is volume 1 ~ by Helen Lester Thompson.
What I love about these two books is that
thy are affordable....I paid $24.95 per
book years ago, but I've seen them
on Ebay go for about $9.95.
These two books are absolutely wonderful...on rainy days
I love to just sit and look through them. They are
full of awesome color photo...you definitely
would not be disappointed in buying them.
Tomorrow I will share some other wonderful
reference books on sewing collectibles.
Last, I would like to share a close up photo of the pillow I
mentioned in the Studio Tour....perhaps you
admire this design as much as I do, and would like to
stitch one up for yourself.
My friend Olga is such a sweetheart ~ she is SO thoughtful & kind,
and sends me such lovely gifts...most of them handmade by her!
This was a birthday present she stitched for me back in 2010.
The saying is fabulous, and if I remember correctly this was a
free complimentary chart by Paulette Steward of Plum Street Samplers.
Check the archives on her blog.
Today I will leave you with this lovely old photo of cattle...enjoy.
I'm so excited while typing this blog, because by accident I FINALLY figured
out....what I couldn't SEEM to figure out ~ and that is; the spacing break
between the photo, which is now allowing me to have a
bigger letter size making everything easier to read.
For the last three weeks, its been making me so frustrated because I
just couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong....it's all in how
you click onto these computer keys!!!!
See you all tomorrow
