Feeling Blue?

I'm still finding stuff to do inside now that the cold weather is here.  More organizing and purging along with crafting.  I made 4 more felt stars with the rest of the vintage pieces that I had.  Austin loved the grey one so much that he kept it.  He has a silver aluminum tree in his room, all year round, and he hung it on that alongside the other ornaments that he has.  He is the collector! (or packrat).  Now I have other treasures to look for at sales.  I'll be on the lookout for pieces that will look good on the stars.

I stopped in at the Sparrows Nest in McHenry where they have lots of springlike dishes and plates.  I found a really nice blue/white square pottery plate for $1.50 and a vintage made in Japan miniature leaf dish for $1.50.  Both with the blue theme.  I'll use them for summer decorating when I bring out the blue/white treasures.  How far away is summer anyway?  Wishful thinking when the weather is so cold.

There are lots of birthdays coming up in February that I am planning for.  Good thing that I shop all year round for gifts.  It's always fun to find something that you know the person will love and that the treasure is unique. 

I did stop by the Material Girl store in Crystal Lake for their sidewalk sale.  They had a lot of great fabric on sale for $4 per yard.  It is a really neat store to browse in.  I got some great ideas for future projects.
