(maison de michele)
Hi again friends!
As promised in my last post I'm back with a wonderful giveaway for you! :)
I want to introduce you to one of my favourite etsy shops

Vintage European Grain Sack Pillow Blue Striped

~ "Things I love...the color white, sewing by hand, vintage handloomed hemp linens, painting antique furniture in French or Gustavian styles, enamelware, caning, french bistro chairs, being amongst the first people into our local flea market and hearing the sounds of the vendors setting up, anything in the style of Louis XVI, soft soothing colors, and grapefruit scented candles. My Etsy store is a tribute to these loves. " ~
Michele

OMG everything was so amazing I want it ALL! *Winks* I too do fabric work all by hand, there is nothing like sewing with a needle and thread, labor intensive, but it feeds your Soul... I just don't get that hunched over a sewing machine... especially since I don't know how to use them well. *winks* What a generous Giveaway!
