Rue Madame

Thought I would share a lovely surprise that came for me in the mail.

It was wrapped oh so lovely and embellished with vintage sheet music.

What was inside you ask?

A sweet smelling grain sack sachet.

...this beautiful hand stenciled apron.
Almost too special to wear.

But my dressform "Millie" sure looks cute wearing it.

Thanks so very much Rebecca.

I know I hinted of a giveaway coming up.  Some things are happening over here right now so it's coming.  Maybe a little later.  Thanks for your patience.

What a lovely apron....I'm really interested in trying some stenciling on fabric. Aren't we lucky to be in this wonderful world of blogging?
