A-Tasket, another yellow basket, and by far, this is my favorite!

Bending Pins: Quilted Basket

The interior and exterior are both quilted and added a split interior pocket.

The exterior fabric is by Riley Blake, “Daisy Cottage” Damask in Daisy and the interior is from Lori Holt’s line, “Millie’s Closet”, Herringbone Coat in Yellow. The basket measures 11″ long x 6″ wide x 8.5″ tall.

I think I’m going to play with Deb Strain’s Spa and Daisy Cottage…

… or maybe Joel Dewberry’s Woodgrain in Vintage Yellow.

According to colour psychology:

“The color yellow relates to acquired knowledge. It is the color which resonates with the left or logic side of the brain stimulating our mental faculties and creating mental agility and perception.

Being the lightest hue of the spectrum, the color psychology of yellow is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun.

In the meaning of colors, yellow inspires original thought and inquisitiveness.”

Clearing out the cottage

1970’s Vintage Pots & Pans

I spent yesterday clearing out the cottage and posting vintage goodies on Ebay and Etsy.

Besides the groovy paisley pots and pans, one of my favorite items, which I haven’t posted yet is this little Japanese spice set. The wooden holder acts like a miniature lazy susan, just turn the little wooden knob on the top. (Click any image to enlarge.)

Other items I haven’t posted yet inclue the ever popular pyrex bowls and cookware.


And groovy glassware.

If you see anything you like, drop me a line and we’ll make a deal. Also, if anyone knows how to get food staines out of pyrex, please let me know! I haven’t tried yet and I don’t want to unnecessarily scratch the cookware.

My friend Andrea is coming over to sip wine, hang out and do a bit of sewing, yipeee!


I could see this fussy cut.

If you could peel it off the wall of our bedroom at the cottage.

There’s a lot of interesting wallpaper here from different eras, more tomorrow.
