Like Daughter, Like Mother...

Since arriving in Washington at my daughter's, we have been shopping and working to make handmade items to sell at
 I did not bring anything to work on as I needed the space in the car to bring stuff I already had to sell. after all that was the whole idea behind doing this.  
And I knew my daughter had plenty to create with...

She has surpassed me in my fabric collection and lace and buttons and ribbon and paper and...

And she is very generous... anything you want. mom just take!

I did not begin to show you the drawers and drawers of goodies, I was like a kid in a candy shop. I haven't created anything in months, so it was fun to dig in.

So I made a few pillows out of French linens

And what would Farm Chicks be without Aprons...

This is Cash... he is my helper!
Thank you Jody!

Hope to see you at  theFarm Chicks Show!

I am linking up with Debra at Common Ground for inspiration Friday.



  1. I felt the same as you! Like a kid in a candy store, so much beautiful materials and supplies, love your creations and that apron (the third picture from the bottom up) I don't like to wear aprons, but that one, I would wear, Thank you for sharing lucky girl!
    Have fun at the show!

  25. That is a Heavenly Studio and so beautifully organized and well... just beautiful! I can see how being surrounded by all those lovely items would get the creative juices flowing... and your creations are lovely! And how wonderful that you and your Daughter share a love of creativity and collecting the items to repurpose into those items you will create.
