Cleaning buttons and ironing fabric.

This is what my life has turned into.I've been cleaning vintage buttons for the past month now. I found tons and tons over my birthday weekend towards the end of June and since, I've found a bit more at the flea market that I couldn't pass up. It's a problem...my love for vintage buttons. I recognize it. And I'm working on it. Really, I am! haha

On top of that, I picked up a huge bedding/comforter bag of vintage fabric and quilt scraps from a yard sale last weekend. All of the pieces were all crinkly and wrinkly, so I decided to iron them. I was ironing for 2 days. And as if that wasn't enough, after I was finished with those, I had the brilliant idea to to iron the rest of my fabric stash. You know, because the iron and ironing board were already out. Umm...yeah. I was ironing for awhile.

I took a few photos around the bedroom today. This was after it was freshly dusted and cleaned. Fun stuff.And I added a new Heartfelt Wall Hanging to Other Such Nonsense.Coming REALLY soon to the ol' shop are these new Tiny House Standees! So excited about these! So fun to make them! Collect a bunch and make a little village! Also, if you're interested in a custom tiny house of your very own, please send an email to lindsayduranceau@hotmail.com and we can work together to create a super special one!Has everyone seen the new Harry Potter movie? LOVED IT! What did you all think? I thought it was super cute and really enjoyed the interaction between Hermione and Harry in this one.

Also, I'm really late in posting this, but Scrap Mojo is back with a brand new challenge! All the details can be found over on the blog...you have until July 25th to get your layouts in. Here's my take (I think this was made like 2 months ago)...So, go check it out! :)

I've also been adding lots of vintage buttons sets and things to Other Such Nonsense 2: Vintage and Supply. If you haven't checked it out lately, be sure to! Here's some highlights of recently added items...Wow. That felt like a lot of catching up. I promise to try not to go a few weeks between updates next time. :)
