5th Blogiversary!

It's already been 5 years! The traditional gift for a 5th anniversary is wood, so here is a 5-piece collection inspired by the stunning wooden floor of the Blackpool Tower Ballroom in the UK. Ballroom is available in my shop as fabric, wallpaper, gift wrap, cut-and-sew patterns, and homewares!
Thank you for following my crazy creative dance thus far! Here's to the next 5 years of Creatively Graceful!

Golden Treasure

I love the incised floral on this golden locket, a family heirloom. Inside it I have written Romans 8:38-39: "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." That fact is my greatest treasure, as it was for St. Patrick!

Peach Deco

Swoon with me at the Art Deco glory of this peach canister set! They are ceramic with a glossy glaze, complete with swag details, salt and pepper shakers, and a napkin holder. It's hard to tell how old they actually are, likely mid-century items, but I love their 1920s styling and perfect condition.

Vera Scarves

After reading about surface pattern designer Vera Neumann I went through a period of discovering oodles of her scarves at every thrift store I went to! I always chuckle at how that kind of thing happens, and clearly I started a collection. The bold stripes and such on these slender pointed scarves are so eye-catching, and I love to see her name on the corners. Vera scarves are fun and functional to tie in my hair when swing dancing!
