Carly's Llama Lampshade Apron

Look at these fabrics!  Don't you just love them?  I do the Llama Love Fabric from Monaluna Organic is so adorable!  I wish I could take the credit for putting these fabrics together in the making of this apron, but I can't!  Carly chose and I love the combination!  The combination has a vibrant, youthful and energetic look to it!  I love how it turned out and have to admit that I would not have chosen to put this combination together along with three different trims...well click read more to see more...

"H" Has a New Apron

He had seen his mother put on her apron to cook.  He especially likes it when she cooks cupcakes or birthday cakes.  This is a fun thing to him.  He tried to put on one of her aprons to join her in this fun activity.  His mother soon decided that he just might need an apron for more to see his Christmas Apron...

The Lady Behind Big Eyes

I have always loved her work but never knew anything about her.  I'm speaking of  Margaret Keane.  I surely did not know that her husband Walter had taken credit for her paintings.  

Margaret says in the story that goes with photo above, "Christoph did a wonderful job, I think he's portrayed Walter exactly as he was, but I think Walter was maybe a little crazier!

I feel so sorry for what this lady must have gone through.  Painting, creating, working so hard at what she loved only to let her husband at the time, take the credit for her work.  The movie Big Eyes is playing in our city now.  I want to see it.  

I decided to find out a little move about this talented artist whose work I grew up seeing and loving. I share with you today...
