Getting Close, Countdown 2 days to Grand Opening!











Only 2 days left until our Grand Opening! I can't believe it's finally here. We've been so busy getting ready. I still have lots to do. Oh shoot I forgot to take a photo of our sign, oh well next post. Did you see the cool bags in the photo!! Yep! Those are from Retrofied on Etsy. You might have recognized them:)

Wish I had more time to write. But I'll fill you in next Weekend, and let you know how it went! Dresses from ThreeYellowStarfish on Etsy will be here any day! They will hang on the hangers in the back.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all those faithful Husbands and Daddies who Support us Crafty Mommies! I wasn't able to catch a photo of Daddy deer, but here's a shot of one of our resident "Bambis" Thought you might enjoy. Last night we had 10 of them all eating off 3 different varieties of walnut, almond and apricot trees. We love our Deer! Sorry I didn't get pics! They tend to come around in big groups on Holidays. On Thanksgiving a family of about 12 walked through our yard. I think they celebrate too!



Have a Wonderful, Restful Day!!

It's a Start!


Well, we are finally getting somewhere, Here's the window so far, so there will be curtains on the sides, and some fun skirt aprons hanging on a clothes line, but it's a start:) Lots to do next week to get ready for the Grand Opening on July 1st.

My New Vintage Sewing Machine!



I found the coolest vintage sewing machine at the Swap Meet last weekend. Check it out, it's a a "Sovereign" Made in Japan. I'm guessing from around 1940-1950. It's one of my favorite colors, Mineral Green. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, The gentlemen told me it works, but needs a new belt. I figured, even if it didn't work, the $20 price tag would still be worth it as a decoration in my shop:)

Oh and I finished putting the knobs on the dresser. My fancy Cash Register will sit a top:)

Have a Wonderful Weekend. I promise more updates on Shop progress next week!

OK, Now for some New Fabric!!








Cogmo by Cosmo Cricket just arrived on Friday, I was able to post a set and some individual yards so far on Etsy, but haven't had a chance to crop and post on my regular website. You can find them in my Etsy Store

Toadstool Knobs Complete!



I really wish I were more of a painter. Maybe I had the wrong brushes. They didn't turn out perfect! But they will work out I think. I'll put them on tomorrow and post a picture of the dresser with them on.:)

Toadstool Knobs Round 1





How about that Apple Green paint color! I have a quart so I'm hoping to find another piece of vintage furniture to paint with it. Round 1 of Toadstool Knob project complete! Thanks, Amber for the Great Suggestion! Only $1.46 ea. at Osh!

Birthday present to Me!




I'm sorry I didn't have time to decorate much yet, but I had to share this. We bought this really cool vintage dresser at the Swap Meet for $20, and my Sweet Hubby Painted it on my B-Day for me. What a Star! It's has a Round Mirror that goes in the Scallop at the top, but it was little flimsy so we didn't mount it.

Do you love it? I need to find some great knobs. Any suggestions? I would love to find some wood-carved mushroom drawer pulls if something like that existed, maybe in lime green? Any one seen anything like that?

Have a Lovely Weekend. Oh and I Tweeted a weekend special for www.fabricworm.com:

Available now is Just Dreamy (on it's way to me, but not in stock yet.) And Be Merry (the Holiday group will be available sometime in July).

I'm super loving that Christmas Tree Print, and how about those Dots!!
