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 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 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 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. :)
