New Additions from Sweet Annie's Vintage

Sherri Mash of Sweet Annie's Vintage is a local artisan who makes the sweetest creations incorporating salvaged vintage fabrics and notions and sometimes new fabric too.  The pillows above arrived in our shop on Sunday. 
This is an earlier arrival and is made from a beautiful toile fabric with vintage buttons and lace accenting the ephemera image. 
This little tote is the perfect size for an e-reader!  It is just so cheerful!
Here are another couple of her wonderful pillows.  We both love the embroidery on this one.
The two larger pillows are made from the same salvaged quilt.  The French style pillow in the front is made of lovely navy and white ticking and has such a lovely graphic on it.  It is new to the shop.
Sherri also makes lovely pennant bunting garlands. 
These little printed French inspired bowl filler pillows make great gifts.  These also arrived on Sunday.

Here are a couple more.  She also makes satchets from them. 

These jadeite and yellow pillows would be perfect nestled on a little chair by the kitchen.
They are also new arrivals.
Here is another one of her bunting garlands.

Just in for Christmas: New Abbybelle Creations!

Sam, the artist behind Abbybelle, is just so talented (and sweet!) and her creations a filled with fun.  Here we have Santa and Mrs. Claus figures nestled in an old wire milk crate among vintage aqua mason jars.  She also makes these delightful Santa and Cat head ornaments that we have nestled in old jello molds.  (I apologize about the lighting in these pics...I am still getting to know a new camera.)
Here we have a snowman with a cat building another to his one side and another cat preparing for a snowball fight on his other.  Three little Christmas mice are nestled among hankies in the box below them. 

This Santa is relaxing in his jaunty overalls.  We found that one of our vintage light fixture bases made the perfect pedestal for him!
Sam also made these sweet snowman head ornaments.  The pillow tucked in the drawer above is made in Lancaster County, PA by Old Time Gathering.
This little wooden church is also part of the same display in the shop and I couldn't resist sharing it here.  It is vintage and hand made.  It lights up and there is a nativity scene at the front of all the church pews. 
This wall hanging is another one of the many pieces by Old Time Gathering that we have in the shop.  It is hand painted and grunged and stitched by hand.  We found that these work great as valances or as accents on curtains.  You can also hang them up on a wall or door. 
Here is another example of one of their fabric hanging signs.
