Eye Candy

Join me at Faded Charm Cottage for the White Wednesday Linky Party
             Russie's sewing nook looks like the perfect image for White Wednesday,
 and the French Cupboards - French Inspiration Party

Stacks and stacks of antique lace from a very old French monastary
is just some of the eye candy in my friend, Russie's
sewing nook

Eye Candy

She is busy preparing lovely pillows and such for 
"A Tiny Cottage on Grand" Etsy shop which hopefully will be
launched soon very soon.

Today was spent photographing antique and vintage items for
our ETSY shop.

These are just some of my many friends that I have loved
dearly for decades. 
My tiny cottage is packed full  
so now it is time to scale down my collection 

Hope you enjoy a little peek at a few of my needful things before
their posted on Etsy.

I attended an Estate sale this past weekend and purchased lots of
needful things for the shop.   The homeowner was 91
and she never married, she traveled the world, worked for the city
and lived in a fabulous old estate. I purchased several
of her books which opened a window into her life.
Lovely poetry books signed by her many admirers.

Thanks for stopping by, Kathy
