Autumn is my favorite time of year! After several 90 degree + days here in So California it now looks and feels like autumn is finally here.....of course, tomorrow could be looking and feeling summer-like again.....it's California after all!!
As the year winds down toward 2009, we will all too quickly run through Halloween, Thanksgiving and then Christmas.....why does it all have to go at breakneck speed? Anyway, before the time gets away from me I thought I'd share some upcoming fun stuff at Grandma G's!
Very soon, a new category......or, actually, a change to an existing one is coming!! Yard Sale will soon present products at unbelievably low prices.....some as low as $1.00 and none more than $10.00!! Still excellent, useful, items in good condition but it is Yard Sale season and we are cleaning off the shelves!!
My wonderful BigBottomBags will be leaving.....the ones listed are the last that will be available....boo hoo! The wonderful seamstress and designer of these great bags, Lynne Park, is now selling her bags in a B&M store! Good for you, Lynne and best of luck!! So, if you want one, you'd better get it soon!!
I have already shared that I have a new Guest Artist, Suzanne Maust, but I also want to share a lovely photo of her and, in her words, share a little about the lady who makes such pretty treasures!! So, introducing, Suzanne!!
"Suzanne Maust, a mother and grandmother of two lives with her husband in Northern California. Among many hobbies Suzanne has a passion for beautiful vintage linens with European cutwork, embroidery, tatting, crocheting and the like.
Having inherited from her grandmother and mother an interest and talent for sewing and design, she was eager to preserve family memories by sewing usable items that were made from her own ancestors’ linen closets. These dresser scarves, hankies, tablecloths and bedding pieces had been hidden in chests and closets for too long. Suzanne began creating items for her nieces, siblings, children and grandchildren incorporating beautiful family linens she had received from several generations of mothers.
Although she specializes in lovely Tea/Coffee cozies that keep beverages fresh and hot, she also creates elegant lingerie bags, jewelry pouches, infant skirts, personalized infant blankets and adorable totes incorporating these beautiful antique fabrics.
Suzanne also loves to create custom items using pieces of your own vintage linens or chosen fabric." (This is such a wonderful idea....perhaps you have a special family heirloom that you'd like made into a cozy for another family member or a beautiful lingerie bag for a new bride....the possibilities are limitless!!)
