Well, I decided to pull them out, along with some lace that also came from an auction, to make a bunting. I'll use it to jazz up my space at the show I'll soon be doing. This is a quick pic of it. Hopefully, I'll be able to get some shots of it hanging in my space to share with you later.
I actually enjoy being creative and using what I have to make my show space special. Of course, it helps when I have a good stash of supplies and vintage items on hand.
I sewed these on the machine with large stitches in case I want to take them out at a later date.
I just might want to hang this bunting in my soaping room after the show. We'll see.
Now if I could just figure out what to do with all the other linens I have stashed away.
How about you?
Do you have your own stash?

Jane is on the left dressed in yellow and John is the one on the right in blue.
They are two of my unscented soaps that will make an appearance at a show I'll soon be doing.
Did I tell you I decided to do a show? It has been years since I've gone this route, but...
what a great way to officially start my new business.
So ready or not, on October 18,
I'll be in Glendale, KY with a mix of handcrafted, vintage, and new items available for sale.
Oh, and about Plain Jane and Just John.
Nothing ordinary about them as their names may suggest.
They are filled with the goodness of Shea butter and vitamin E.
And Plain Jane also has white kaolin clay just for us girls.
Simplicity at it's best.

I had to grab that pulley and the letterpress drawer, too.
I have piles and piles of enamelware in my basement.
Today, I started pulling it all out of boxes and washed every single piece.
My hands weren't pleased with that decision, but they felt better after an application of shea butter.
Plans for all that enamelware?
Well, it will be paired up with my handcrafted soaps and be up for sale.
Rustic and Simple. A vintage farmhouse look.
I think it will be a good fit. For me. My shop. And my buyers.
