New Clothes, New Shoes, and Old Lace

My cousins came over for my mothers birthday a couple weeks ago but I only just remembered I took a picture of the table setting. I am completely in love with the lace table runner. I was searching for table linens and I found it stuffed in a drawer. My mom thinks it belonged to her grandmother.

For a centre piece I gathered a bunch of antique glass bottles and filled them with forget-me-nots. They are by far my favourite flower and our gardens have grown wild with them. I must remember to pick some more for my room.

The property search continues so I haven't had much time for shopping, but I managed a trip to the Softmoc warehouse outlet this morning. Yay shoes! (I am hopelessly in love with the boots. They were more money than I should have spent but I was too smitten to leave them)

And now as promised, some pictures of my latest sewing creations. I am still working on the slippers and 1950's jacket but as soon as they near completion pictures will be posted
Skirt-Made by me!
Shirt- Designer Depot

Dress- Made by me without using a pattern :)

And after nearly a year of not working on the hat, I sat down and finished it! It is a gift for my friend Jesse and it turned out much better than expected.
