Studio Supplies!

Check out this super sweet German spice rack that I got from Davies Vintage Etsy shop! I've been searching and searching for a perfect little something to organize our office supplies and boy did I find a gem!
 How amazing are the labels??? Don't you want to know the story behind how this ended up in the States?
Do any of you have a clue to what Lorbeenlaub is?  I can't wait to get this little cutie up on the wall!!!

spring has sprung

You gotta love an early spring! I wish my little plum (?) tree that I planted for my son Aidan bloomed all year round, it makes me so happy and thankful.  It's almost as pretty in the early evening, it glows in the darkness like a puffy tree of cotton candy.

Recent Acquisitions!

I've been a burnt out for about 3-4 months now so I decided to shut Modern June down for an extended Spring Break!!! Meanwhile, I'll be doing some things that I love (shop for vintage linens), some things that I want to do (totally redo the studio) and some things that I have to do (loads of paper work and taxes)!

Today I took a few hours to wandered aimlessly through most of the shops on Lakeside. As usual, the antiques, consignment, gift and antique shops were all filled with fun loot. I found some sweet vintage linens that make me very happy and seriously inspired!
I've been loving on this sweet little bunting made of vintage hankies that I saw over at Ohdeedoh. A little something just for me. See what else is inspiring me at my Pinterest page!!

things I love...

The only new thing I love more that Adele's new CD is this gingham bias of love!

Reminds me of oilcloth...

I found this on the front page of Etsy today and it reminded me of Mexican oilcloth. You know how I love that!!! The Wheat Field shop is filled with lovely prints and cards, but Mountain Bouquet is my favorite.

Local Shops: Feathernesters

Marc and Tony at Feathernesters, let Meghan and I take over the shop so we could take pretty pictures for my book, Sewing with Oilcloth!! 

The best thing about this shop is all the little "rooms" that are nestled within the old vintage doors and furniture.
And then there are the really big rooms filled with pretty, pretty fun! 

Don't forget the garden shed! Those chairs look familiar!
Frilly pink fun. I did a trunk show at Feathernesters once, and every single thing I sold was pink! Not a lie! Those ladies that frequent this shop love their pink!!!

Look, it's me! I took this after the Junie Brunch. For more Feathernester fun... click this!

Junie Brunch!

I can't believe that it's been two weeks since I've had a minute to blog! It hasn't been all work though--I've had a whole lot of fun too! I was able to treat my Junies (my lovely shippers, cutters and stitchers) to brunch at Feathernesters. It was great to spend the morning sharing a meal with my wonderful friends and colleagues.
Remember all that cotton fabric that I enjoyed playing around with back in January? Well I turned it all into some fun little gift bags filled with Feathernesters' homemade fudge, recipe cards, and veggie bags.

We had a lot of giggly fun. I am a lucky girl to have such have such a good team!!
