I've Got A Notion

As a matter of fact...I've got quite a few notions! Some I have collected, some my Mom has collected and some my Grandmother collected. I come from a long line of hoarders, hmmm, I mean, collectors.

 Threads, buttons, lace...
they are so pretty....
then when I combine them with dishes and fabric...
and group these little gems by color....

Throw in a silk hat and a dish or two and pretty soon you have yourself a vignette.

 Can't forget to add some more of my favorite fonts...
all can be found for free at dafont.

Hope you have a notion to have a blessed week

So beautiful! And Bleeding Cowboys (the font, of course) has always been one of my favorites!

I love what you have done. I have so many sewing related things and have been trying to find the time to collect and sort them. Seeing your post just might be what I need to get my self going!

Audrey, you are a girl after my own heart...sewing notions are some of my faves! I'm delighted that you shared them at my party this week!

Hi Audrey,

I love your sewing notions. They do make me smile :)


Gina said...

Oh those beautiful blues! Who would imagine that sewing notions gathered in a bowl could look so pretty?

Barbara said...

What a delightful post! Love your blues! I appreciate your font list too - I love a new font!

Stephanie said...

What beautiful shades of blue. The jar of blue buttons is so pretty.

Ribbonwood Cottage said...

Wonderful. I absolutely love the blue button jar. All of it is so pretty, the blue. And thanks for the font info.

Blessed Serendipity said...

Everything looks so pretty grouped together. Doesn't that inspire you to make something using that gorgeous shade of blue?

happy weekend,

Audrey, I love how you sort your notions by color for a vignette. And I am very partial to blue.

I passed up a bag of buttons on Saturday's garage sales and now I am kicking myself. WHAT was I thinking. I love your little table top sewing vignette. SWEET!

Your blue vignette looks amazing with the notions!! Beautiful! Stopping by from You're Talking Too Much linky party.

Here is what I shared this week:

I love to sew, and love all the notions that goes with it. I've found vintage button, needles and so many other things. Never display them, since my sewing room is beyond help. Your vignette is so pretty. Loving the font Bleeding Cowboys, never seen it before! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best!
