Hello, thank you so much for stopping by! I've just added some cute little ribbon rose bunnies to my Etsy Shop. They are done on white flet with some ribbon rose embroidery, stuffed with poly fill and lavender. I've embroidered with outside edge with a blanket stitch. Then I attached a little gold thread to hang if desired. The cute little tail is made from a cotton ball.

I'm working on some more cute little treasures so be sure to stop back!

Hello and thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying the winter. If your feeling the way I do then you are so ready for spring!
I've listed some new creations on my Etsy Store and I thought I'd give you a peek at what I've been up to.
Above is a pic of my new Victorian Hearts Garland done in bold Victorian colors. Victorian still tugs at my heart even though I'm now into alot of the Cottage Chic style of decorating.
My hearts can be done in any color so if you want a color that I don't show I'm sure I can come up a color scheme for you.

The above picture is my new heartstrings done using two hearts and I used colors for St. Patricks here. I will also be doing single heartstrings for those that just want one heart. I should have some listed on my Etsy Shop later this week.

These two pictures are of my sweet little tea towels that I've made using some pretty prints from my stash of fabrics. The one above is done using a Susan Branch Afternoon Tea print. Below is a pretty cupcake print with glitter in the fabric.

The pink heartstrings below are up for a giveaway drawing on my regular blog, Shirls Rose Cottage (Pink Saturday Feb. 28 post) . Be sure to stop and enter the drawing before March 10.
Next I have listed in my shop is this pretty strawberry pincushion made with vintage satin some crystal beads and a swarovski crystal on top. Stuffed with filling and some fresh lavender buds.

Thank you so much for stopping by. It was so nice to visit with you. Think spring!!!!
Bless you! Shirl
