Little boxes in a row.........








Hello my little sweet-peas....

Oh don't you feel great when you finish something that you have been saying for years......
"I must one day sort that out"......well I have done just that.
Opening up boxes of all sorts of bits-n-pieces and putting them into little blue drawers with labels was a very big job.....but also exciting finding little treasures I have collected and squirreled away.
Now when I am making something its all at my finger tips....I hope.
In amongst the my items I found some old 50's broken hair-clips that I have been making into brooches, like the little fan I am wearing.
Next is the large.....hmmm huge collection of fabrics.
If you haven't heard from me in a while, it may be a good idea to send out a search party, complete with St Bernard and whiskey barrel.

  3. Oh my I want to peer into your little blue boxes. Every picture of St Biddies teases me....I CAN'T WAIT TO VISIT!!!! Hehee. Thank you thank you thank you darling for the lovely package. The wee boots fit & I LOVE the style. Very Edwardian-esque! And the frock is a PERFECT fit....perfect Autumn colours, (matches my new old yellow cardigan) & so versatile for summer or winter. Of course I adore the accessories too. I'll do a frock post when the Captain has a day off. Love to you precious Squirrels. Xx

  4. That storage unit is brilliant, I could really do with one of those.
    Well done for sorting out all your wee bits and bobs, it will be a great time saving advantage in the future I'm sure. I'm forever loosing hours trying to locate bits for projects, having to scour through bags, boxes, tins & drawers to find what I am after...very frustrating to say the least!
    Good luck with sorting out your fabric stash...xXx

  5. Oh V, I love your little boxes, and your red dress (it reminds me of the sport tunic I wore in Grade One). I also love the art work behind your little boxes - are either of you responsible for it? I love the fan, cash register, knitted owl in the glass dome EVERYTHING! How did you guys survive in your camper van?! You must've really missed all of your lovely stuff, it must've been so much fun unpacking it all swhen you moved into St Biddies x

  6. I've always wanted something like this for my sewing room. I like having things separated by what I need.

  7. Love your drawers, Miss V! Isn't it satisfying to feel you have done a good job and got lots of stuff sorted? Just the fabric to go...
    Beautiful pinafore, you look like a demure schoolgirl tidying the store cupboard at play time (so you must have been a wee bit naughty!) xxx

  14. another beautiful dress/pinafore! It's a similar shape to your other gym slip. I love little drawers full of fun stuff for making things with, though I think if I had a drawer marked "old lace" I would definitely mark the one before it "arsnic"!! xx

  15. OMG! You were really a very hard-working girl and I love your boxes with the treasures inside. I would like to peek in every blue box and find one surprise after the other. I love the doll in the frame as well. And you in your red dress in front of the blue boxes: That's a lovely picture, dear.

  17. Holy guacamole - this is FANTASTIC! The drawers are amazing - I would fill a whole wall of these drawers with all sorts of nonsense and wile away whole weekends sorting and resorting like an OCD nutcase!

    You look absolutely beautiful in red, my darling. Stunning.

    Love! Sarah xxx
