finding treasures and a book winner!

Just thought I’d pop in today to show you a few fun things I found at an estate sale over the weekend:

[vintage arabia enamel bowl]

[something to hang on the awkward space next to the window in the kitchen]

Not at the estate sale, but still really cool, this lovely stack of fabrics, just waiting to be cut into:

[hometown by sweetwater for moda, candy trees by julia rothman for cloud 9 fabrics]

And to announce the Sewing for Boys book winner!  I was so thrilled with everyone’s response, sounds like this book will be an awesome tool for all you moms (aunts, grandmas, too) with boys (and in some cases lots of boys!). So from the top of the heap:

Congrats Rebekah, I sent you an email!

ps stay tuned tomorrow for a tutorial that has spent a long time in the queue.  😉  I just love adding little surprises at the end of posts, let’s me know who really reads through to the end.

    Your treasures are great finds- I love Arabia stuff. Not sure what the springy spoon does- a sort of whisk maybe? It is really interesting! and a nice cream, gren, red colour grouping

    ha ha! I read it all! every. last. word.
    I had an aunt who would put dirty words in her letters to her kids to see if they actually read them or just cashed the cheque she (boob)sent them :)

    she was totally fun!

    I have a little obsession with cherries, so I love that bowl! I’m wondering what the utensil with the green handle is used for? Is it like a whisk kinda thingy? Either way it’s pretty cool looking! Can’t wait for the tutorial tomorrow!

    I had most of those fabrics in my virtual shopping cart the other night…wish I would have gone to the checkout;) Also, I just saw that same cherry enamel bowl at an antique store last week! Super cute-great finds Anna.
