Look What’s New, Romantic, and Shabby Chic!

Make a cup of tea, and relax while you stroll along Leisure Lane today.  I have two new pretties for sale in My Little Bloomin’ Shop.

Remember the project I gave you a peek of in my July 8th post “Everything’s Sew-Sew”?  Well, I’ve finished! It’s a romantic chic, heart-shaped decorative pillow.  Entirely hand-sewn with 100% cotton blue and cream colored striped fabric.  It measures 10″ x 1o”.  It will add the perfect touch to your romantic or shabby chic decor.

Lace, buttons, and a bow are added for charm.

And remember that beautiful hand-sewn ribbon rose that I received in my Marie Matchbox from Terri at Artful Affirmations?  I found the perfect spot for it on a pretty lace bow.

The pillow has a fabric loop for hanging.

The loop can be neatly buttoned in the back for use as a decorative pillow on the bed, sofa, or in any special niche.

My next item is this pretty, cheery set of 4 mini potholders/coasters.  I’ve shown similar ones before, and they are just darling…

… and very useful.

Hand-knitted in 100% cotton yarn to a generous 5″ x 5″, they fit perfectly in the palm of the hand.  They’re tied together with a pink ribbon for presentation.

To purchase these, and/or to view other lovelies, stroll by My Little Bloomin Shop for more information and prices.

Thank you for visiting today.  Until next time, may happy days abound!
