Waiting for the rain....

Happy Thursday my lovelies :)

It's been so hot and crazzzyyyy windy these days, it actually made me think  of some summer rain.  I'm craving for colder weather, for fall warmer colors... Aren't you feeling this way too? I can't wait for September to come, not that this means that it won't still be hot. It's actually pretty much hot here in Greece till early November!! 

Anywaysssss, while thinking of rain, I made something that I can share with you :) And I have some exciting news to share also.  It's the first item of my new {and still under construction} etsy shop.  Yes!!Yes!! I finally made up my mind on this issue, and decided that I should try opening my own shop :) I hope that I will fill it with beautiful, colorful, lovely handmade things for everyday living !!!

So the first item, is... can you guess?? A pillow cover for a 16'' pillow form, themed "Waiting for the rain..."





I just love everything about this pillow cover!!! The combination of the colors of the clouds, the hand sewn little cloud {althought it's "slightly" crooked}, the plain denim fabric and the vintage looking buttons in the back.  It's not listed yet, cause I have so many things to figure out {shipping/payment/etc.}, but I so wanted to share it with you:)

So, here's to a fresh start and to many more lovely handmade things to follow!!! Thanks again my lovelies for all your support all this time:)

  2. Congratulations!! Your stitched handwriting is so nice and neat - and I love the little button touch. I'm ready for fall too - I'm not a heat person and once I'm done with vacation I'm ready for cooler wather. I love September through Christmas, so I'm glad they're on their way (but isn't this always the fastest part of the year?)
