I have more flea pickings to show you. The southern belle is a square tablecloth with a belle in each corner. Really detailed stitching on this piece. Lots of fancy stitches too. 

Isn't the edge on this dish remarkable? What a handpainted beauty she is. 
One flea dealer was making repro French grain sacks by printing on heavy canvas panels. This may become a pillow. I bought another to share. I hope I can find her next week to purchase some more. I feel a new season of "Hoarders" about to begin! See you at the flea!

Going to the chapel......

It's that time of year again. June! and that means weddings. We had a big wedding/reunion in my family. My niece got married and I made 40 dozens cookies for the reception.  I hear the cookies, at weddings, are now as important as the cake. We had cake too.....HO-HO cake. Layers of chocolate cake, chocolate ganache, chocolate icing and fluffy vanilla cream.  And no, we're not Italian. I know they are known for baking alot for weddings too. What a fun time.
