Please stop by Sierra's site - Haute Steel - http://www.hautesteel.com/ - to check out the great selection of handcrafted steel garden stakes. A large variety of dog shapes and many other shapes too (including a very cool mermaid) They have nice detail and the rust treatment patina that is on the metal is great, and looks even better after being in the weather for awhile. If you make a purchase, mention Carol @ Dandelion Vintage sent you.
Hey bunny! My surge of creativity continues! Over this past weekend I did some more sewing. I made some little cuties including a hummingbird and a bunny, because hummingbirds and bunnies are my thing right now. You know that I love the hummingbirds, and we have a bunny who comes and eats in our yard everynight. We use to see rabbits at our old house all the time. But you don't see them as often here in the woods because they are more cautious and in more danger from preditors here. Did I ever tell you the story about how we saw a snake kill a bunny in the yard here last year? It was horrible, so I love our little regular visiting bunny very much. I just had to make a little stuffy bunny because I'm silly & sentimental. I used this pretty pale green plaid fabric that I received in a fabric swap through Use What You Have . I embroidered his face and gave him a little fabric puff tail. The hummingbird was made from fabric that came from the bottom of a 1940s dress that I shortened for myself. He has gold tulle wings and a piece of shore bamboo for a beak.
I almost forgot this kitchen cutie that I also made. Click on the image for some details about the fabrics.
I'm still working on the monthly Vintage Clothing themed altered book round robin. This was our 5th month, and the theme for the book that I had this month was 'Another Time, Another Place' I stayed in the US for the place, but for the time I chose 1940s during WWII. My idea was 'War Brides Working Girls & the WACS' along with a little clothing and nylon rationing.
