through the looking glass. . .

Perfectly beautiful 1920's vanity with glove drawer. . .near mint condition.   I knew when I saw this vanity it would be even prettier painted white. The mirrors are original to the piece and so are the wooden drawer pulls on the bottom drawers and the glass drawer pulls on the glove drawer.  If you look closely you will see the white rabbit's reflection in the mirror

Necessity. . .

is the Mother of invention. . .or so Mama would have said. . .OK so I didn't invent the wheel here but I was sorely in need of a new kitchen curtain/valance.  So why not use the osnaberg that I have sitting around the house, and sew a new curtain.  I'm a busy person. . do a lot of different things. . .and never bored (although sometimes so tired I can barely make it to bed. . .and I didn't really have "time" to make something for myself. . .but I rationalized this; thinking I could make the curtain for myself, write a blog post, and list it for sale on Etsy. . .so here's another "home" project turned into an Etsy listing.

Tea anyone?

For those of you who "live" for tea, be is syrupy sweet over ice or straight up steaming hot, this pillow is for you.  Covered in "tea" words, the pillow cover is a muted gray/taupe color.  Works beautifully in the French Country farmhouse.
