My sweet dear friend Carolyn brought a surprise to my workshop last night!!



Just in time for Round Top! I can't believe what an AMAZING job she did, and in only 3 days. That's right, I just delivered the naked cart to her Monday. I just love the way she married 2 different vintage table cloths together. Carolyn is a wonderful seamstress, she makes these darling pillows that she sells at Collected Treasures.





You can check them out here.




And look.....a pocket! Perfect for my camera and map.



She is one of those thoughtful, generous people who would do anything for a friend just to see them smile. I'm defiantly smiling!

Love the cart with liner. You'll definitely be 'stylin' at Roundtop. I've never been to Texas and would love so much to attend the shows there. Have a great time and take lots of pics!

Lisa!
You sweetheart, you! My wonderful Etsy package just arrived in all its glory. I love, love, love the baby bottles and metal carrier. I'm heading outside in a minute to clip some flowers and fill my little pretties.

The lavender sachet you tucked in the box was a gift in and of itself. You generous, wonderful, thoughtful person. Can you tell I loved it?

It's been years and years since I was lucky enough once to get to go to Roundtop. That is such an awesome event. Your new, tricked out cart and your talented friend are both keepers! Have a wonderful time!

LOVE LOVE LOVE THE CART, I HAVE A COLLECTION OF 40'S TABLECLOTHS, CAN'T BRING MYSELF TO CUT THEM, BUT I REALLY SHOULD, THE DRAWERS ARE STUFFED WITH THEM, I USED SOME LAURA ASHLEY TO PIMP OUT MY CART WITH OLD LACE AT THE TOP OF IT MANY YEARS AGO, IT WEARS WELL, BUT I'M DUE FOR A CHANGE :) GIO

Hello fellow Texan!
That's a great looking cart, I'm getting sorta desperate to find one before Warrenton.
Maybe I'll see you there!
All the best,
Anne
