The vintage crinolines from last week’s auction adventure are all washed – final count 53!! Totally amazing. Here’s what they looked like all nice and clean – piled on the guest room bed. Sort of puts into one’s mind the Princess and the Pea story, only instead of mattresses I have a pile of frothy vintage crinolines! (there are actually quite a few pale pastel ones – we washed those first so they ended up at the bottom of the pile!) There is NO way these will all fit on the garment rack I bought….
In the meantime, between wash loads of tulle, I have been working on some last minute gifts for some staff and students at the school where I teach. These are for a couple of one-on-one assistants I have worked with,
Their dedication and patience has truly been inspiring.
I sure will miss the little critters! Hopefully these journals will inspire them to write, draw and create a bit over the summer. I found the wonderful images for the journals and tote bag on my friend Karen’s website – The Graphics Fairy. Every day she scans in several wonderful old images that can then be used for all sorts of projects.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful and creative day!
