Dream Catchers, Pillows, and the Market!

Between shoveling 12 yards of mulch into the flower beds,
planting rose bushes, foxglove, and hydrangeas,
and loading the trailer with treasures from my booth
for the Allegan Antique Market on Sunday ~

I squeezed in some time to create more dream catchers to take with me.
Even though I tend to want to keep each one I make...
I do hope I sell them all.
{It'll give me a reason to make more of them, right....?}

Introducing "Prairie Girl Pink"...

"Prairie Meadow"...

and "Blue Skies".

I think I may have to hang on to this one for a while......  :)

Message me on Facebook or drop me an email if you'd like me to create one of my dream catchers
just for you...or for someone special...or as a wedding gift....or a baby shower...or birthday present...
well, you get the idea!

On another note, remember that beautiful needlepoint piece I discovered at the market last month?

My friend, Randi, who is a fabulously talented quilter,
 sewed it onto a pillow slip that Shellagh made for me
from RASC pink velvet.

I love it's vintage look.

Thank you so much, Randi!

The crocheted throw was a flea market find last month.
It was originally a dull, boring shade of tan.
I dyed it using a bit of 'Petal Pink' Rit Dye.
Because of its base tan color, instead of dyeing to a candy pink like 'Petal Pink' can do when used by itself,
the throw turned a pretty mauve pink.

Randi also sewed some napkins for me out of scraps of SSC fabric that I had.
I mixed them with my RASC napkins.
Now, I've got enough for a summer party!

Well, it'll be a busy but fun weekend here at Heaven's Walk.
The weather's supposed to be bright and sunny with cool temps.
 Just perfect for partying at a flea market!

This is where you'll find me on Sunday.


Look for Georgina and me at Booth #0-140!

Have a great Memorial Day!

  2. I wish you all the best at the fair! Your dream catchers are going to be a big seller...I bet you will get orders, too, and then you will have NO time for gardening! ;-D

    I love the pillow, very, very sweet! And the napkins! I was at Hobby Lobby today and I saw a fabric glue that was very interesting, especially for someone like me who can't sew. I never liked messing around with the iron on mesh. I'd love to have a pretty assortment of napkins, even pillow cases.

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  3. I hope you have a wonderful time Laurie! You have so many beautiful things to sell and I know you will be a BIG hit!

  34. As always, your dream catchers are divine Laurie. Love the cushion too. It fits perfectly in your house. Thanks for linking up at Shabbilicious Friday - I really appreciate it.

  35. all so pretty Laurie! love everything as always!!! I hope you had a wonderful market day! I am very envious that you are heading into spring! woke up this morning with a rather cool 0 degrees celcius. think its time to get out the electric blanket! Your pillow looks wonderful too! hope you have gad a great week lovely!!! hugs to you,

  36. I just planted a hydrangea myself to replace a Rose of Sharon, which died unfortunately. The blue skies dream catcher is fantastic. Cool colors can go almost anywhere in a home and this is really beautiful. These all really impressed me and I am sure that the dream catchers made big sales.

  37. Laurie, I haven't been able to get those napkins out of my head and I know WHAT THIS MEANS ! sigh..... I will have to have some of them....any suggestions on how to have a set for those on a severe budget ? LOL....I simply must have them....and probably a tablecloth to go with it.....please give me some suggestions, or where to buy that fabric? blessings, lady

  38. Hi Laurie, just wanted to let you know I finished my Linen Tablecloth with ruffles, thank you very much, and the napkins, its my last post, I'm happy with it and yes, my world is right side up again. lolol. Thanks for the inspiration.

  39. I love the dream catchers they must be expensive to make. Where do you find the material to do them? Its hard to tell exactly what they are made of. Simply beautiful
