~Pillows & A Dry Sink~

I know I have been gone a long time, but time just seems to slip away from me these days. I cannot believe that I am already a month into my summer vacation!  Time certainly does fly.

It has been a busy summer so far.  I have four photo shoots to do for A Primitive Place & Country Journal magazine at some wonderful houses.  I have also decided to do a craft show this fall!  I am for from a professional when it comes to making primitive handmade items, but I am giving it a try.  I will be selling my cross stitched samplers, stitcheries, and pillows at the show.  I am really excited about it and I am using the lazy days of summer to build up my inventory! = )

Some of you may remember that my mom taught me to sew last summer.  My mom got a new sewing machine for Christmas, so she gave me her old one.  That was two weeks ago.  In that time, I have made 25 pillows for the show!  Here is a very small sampling of the pillows I have made.  Most of these pillows were my first attempts, so that are not the best ones I have made.  I do believe they are getting better with each one a make.

Jeff and I have also been doing a little antique shopping this summer.  Last week, I found this great dry sink at a local antique store.  I placed it in the basement kitchen and used it to display some of my wooden bowls.  I really like the way it turned out!

I will be posting more of my handmade items in the near future so that you can see what I have come up with. 

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More.  I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as possible.  Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook.  I would love to see you there too.  You can also follow Yesterday Once More on pinterest by clicking here!
