The girl With The most Cake

Well, You can't even believe how lucky I am these days. On top of all the lovely comments and new and exciting folks who I am finding via New Vintage, I have all these wonderful talented blog friends that I have liked to go and visit since I started blogging.. and sometimes these kind and generous souls are just Giving Away the beautiful stuff that they make.

Talk about good timing?
I was Kristin of Kleas' 1000th comment and so she sent me the most charming pincushion which will inspire me to make many more New Vintage Items. I love her pincushions: the color combos, the plumpness, the perfect tiny stiches on the blossoms. Just Look at the Cuteness!!



i wish i was tiny... it would be my tuffet.


Then Stephanie of Ruby Crowned Kinglet t said she drew my name from her blog birthday list? Wha? Hello? I must have been I very good girl in my previous life! ( Obviously, it can't have been based on anything I have been up to in this one, I assure you.)

You can buy a spring wristlet for yourself, i mean, if you are feeling envious ( if I wasn't me, probably I would be feeling a little envious.. not to gloat.. much).. at Steph's shop

She also sent candy ( I love candy...) and the vintage pattern that made me swoon.



The outfit will have to have its own cocktail party. I am going to have to have a sweeping staircase added to my single story house so I can make a proper entrance.. You know... Like Auntie Mame.


Thanks ladies, for making me lucky.

Since you aren't wee enough to use the pincushion as a tuffet, perhaps you can (from time-to-time) share it with the gnomes. I don't think they'd be too greedy with it, because they're pretty busy and don't sit down a lot.

A cocktail party? A sweeping staircase? I can't decide which is better. Maybe you could just rent one. Lucky gal!

The loot is fabulous! It's a good thing I didn't win that delicious looking pin cushion because if I had I would be chewing on it right now.

Just like a dog, I guess.
Then Philip would really start worrying.

But the pattern is making me hyperventilate! I wish it was in a size 38 or 40 because then I could copy it and make it when I get a wee bit smaller than I am right now. That is one of those very hard to find patterns that is just too good for words.

I hope to see this one on the New Vintage Wardrobe group in the near future!
