Perfectly sweet gift idea for Mother's Day...

I promised an update about a new design and here it is....Mom & Me matching purses (perfect for Grandma & Me as well!) Purses have lots of pink roses and ticking and each have a wonderful vintage rhinestone button, heart shaped for Mom and little bitty one for little girl's purse. This set is available in my Boutique at Make Mine Pink. Of course I can do these any time, not just for Mother's Day, so if you have a certain design in mind contact me about a custom set at

“Someone Will Win a Pink Diamond”

We are so excited! As a proud member of, we have joined with other Pink Boutiques and Make Mine Pink for the “Pink Diamond Campaign”.

Every year Make Mine Pink likes to do something special to honor our valued customers, clients and friends. In all, $2500 worth of fabulous pink prizes will be awarded throughout the contest with a Grand Prize of a genuine pink diamond pendant.

There are several fun ways to win prizes for the Campaign, by just visiting the boutiques at Make Mine Pink and locating the six diamonds hidden among the participating Pink Boutiques each of the six month, or you may see one of the Make Mine Pink boutique owners wearing her pink rhinestone “MMP” pin as she goes about day to day activities, or making a donation to a favorite women’s charity. A monthly prize will be awarded for May, June, July, August and September entries with a grand prize awarded for the month of October. It’s that easy!

Join us in our excitement by visiting the boutiques at Make Mine Pink.

For more information, you may visit or the “Pink Diamond Campaign” link at Make Mine Pink.

One of a Kind Cottage Diaper Bags

When it comes to diaper bags, I do it all, from cottage, to chic, to retro!! I began designing my diaper bags with cottage florals, toiles, vintage laces, and lots of chenille ~ making them so soft and charming! I then began to get many requests for custom bags because there just weren't many cottage style diaper bags out there. Above is a little sampling of my bags. All my diaper bags include sturdy double pockets inside for all baby's necessities, and my custom label sewn inside. If you are interested in a custom diaper bag, email me at, and I would love to make your ideas for the perfect bag come to life.....

A little about my work.....

Roses, roses and more what you will usually find in my work, from faded old pink roses to vivid raspberry roses. I started out making lovely pillows with vintage linens and cottage florals, and now have quite a few other signature items, which I will feature over the nxt week or so right here. I also have a couple of new designs coming soon, one an old favorite, and one something entirely new ~ I'll give a little hint.......think One of a Kind, think Mother's Day!!

A little about my textile art.....

My vintage fabric collages combine my love of vintage textiles and my love of words. Words are powerful and a beautiful phrase can evoke such emotion. My collage designs are built around the wise words of an old poet or author, which I handstitch in a simple lettering. I use vintage fabrics, laces, buttons, etc...all handstitched in a unique way to mirror the words - there is always a little mystery with the finished product, but if you look closely you will see the simple beauty of the words reflected in the design. I collect old vintage frames throughout the year to frame each collage in. Below is a sampling of some of my pieces....
