Sunshine, Embroidery, Endless Yard Sale, Etsy

Hi Everyone,  I hope the sun is bright and beautiful in your neck of the woods. After several days of rain I woke to a beautiful glowing late autumn morning. As quickly as I could I was out to line to get my laundry out in the sun. The breeze was a little cool which made the sun all the more precious to me. The warmth of the sun seemed to wrap itself around me like a comforting handmade shawl. The kind my grandmother used to crochet.

This pretty chemise is one from my collection of vintage clothes. I will be adding a different chemise to Etsy tomorrow along with some other lovely items and I hope you will visit and take a look at our shop. I am always amazed at the detailed embroidery and  and sweet delicate hand made lace that ladies added to their undies a hundred years ago.

Every spring  when I launder my collection I look at this little pair of undies and think how incredibly comfortable and cool they must be.  No; I haven't worn them but that's only because they wouldn't fit.  I do believe they would be so cool and inviting when the temperatures are in the triple digits here in N.C. They also have the most delicate lace.                                                      

                                                                                                                                                                           The crazy quilt below is from my collection of quilts.  I love the velvet's and deep plush corduroy  fabric and the silk although some of the silk has shredded as it will do but my favorite part  is the many enchanting embroidery stitches that outline every square. You'll be seeing more of this quilt along with some of out craft items in future posts. My grandmother taught me many of the same embroidery stitches when I was very young and I will be incorporating these into some of our
designs items vary soon. 

We had an amazing Thanksgiving and the trees are going up and the Christmas decorating has started. Another thing I wanted to mention is that Great American Country will be airing the show of Endless Yard Sale  that was filmed in  North Carolina last June. The contestants shopped from Roanoke Rapids and Halifax to Dunn NC. We were in Halifax and were filmed as they purchased items in our booth. We Know they found some amazing items along the route and we won't know until we see the show if that scene will actually make the final cut but we had a great time and are sure looking forward to seeing the show that will air at 6:00 PM Sunday evening and we hope you will join in and watch along with us.  We are wishing the contestants the best of luck and hoping Great American Country will visit the North Carolina 301 Endless Yard Sale in North Carolina again.
We have an outlook of sunny cool days coming up so I will be back to post again soon. I have to complete the packing and shipping this afternoon so I best get at it. Wishing warm sun and bright blessings to all.
