r-anne-dom : a place for me (anne) to leave random blog posts.
Such as:
..knitting, sewing, and other random activities pursued
..Girl Guides of Canada : yep, Guiding Lives Here
..the 4 shops on Etsy : one features quality handmade items; the second has lots of patterns, & crafting supplies; the third is stocked with Vintage; and the fourth is guiding flowers.
Enjoy the r-anne-domness!

Lovely Vintage Magazine Page

I found this lovely vintage magazine page ... if only it didn't have folds, it would be frame-able!

A bit of embroidery added to rick-rack and you have an entirely new trim!

Nature is ... well, nature

Just as the title says ... nature is, well, nature. 

And sometimes nature is not as predicable as we'd like.

So this morning we woke up and the duck's nest was open and there were no eggs remaining.

Really kind of sad, but that is the way nature works.

I saw momma duck on the lawn earlier this morning, so hopefully she'll move on and carry on with her life and future nestings.

Meet Fiber Artist Jacob

I was lucky enough to have fiber artist Jacob purchase a vintage button from my Etsy shop VintageAndSuch.

He said it was for flowers he was making.

vintage button - looks great!

for the groom

I was thrilled to see it was for his groom boutoniere!

Just look at the details ... the embroidery and obvious skill in fabric choices.

Beautiful work, Jacob!

Duck Update

Our duck is sitting on her nest. 

We think the final total of eggs is 9 but she is on there all the time so we don't disturb her.
