Now to See if Today I can share the Cherry Photos that were Missing Yesterday…..
I have been busy with so many things- kids, crafts, all my DIY projects, starting businesses, vintage hunting, & more… and as the new year starts I am finally getting one of my projects going. I started out vintage “treasure” hunting for myself and along the way I realized how many others love Vintage, Rockabilly, and Retro “treasures”. It has taken longer to share the things I’ve collected than I had planned because I got a snazzy camera that I have no idea how to do snazzy photography with, am so not a web designer, and things just seem to take longer than anticipated…BUT I am happy to finally get it going, even if it is just starting with Ebay (and I will work on dramatically improving my photography and web designing skills while I also work on getting my other projects up and going)! I’m having fun listing and shipping, just 2 days into it and thought I would share some of the first group of “treasures” I have listed…
My favorite Rockabilly designs are polka dots, gingham, and cherries. The other day I was playing around with some of these fabrics and ended up making my daughter a little ruffle skirt with them. The top is just thick white elastic with red velvet sewn around it. Very simple, no pattern- just a few ruffles sewn to a black and white polka dot piece of fabric, then sewn to the covered elastic piece- but she loved it and was all too happy to model it for me!
