The Vintage Bunny

Several years ago while flea market shopping I found Mr. Reginald Smith, the vintage bunny in the basket. I fell in love with his simple embroidered face and his feed sack apparel. I would say he dates back to around the 1930's.
I traced around Mr. Smiths body to make Mrs. Smith his companion. The two took an instant liking to one another the first time they met and they haven't seemed to take their eyes off each other, bunny love.
After their meeting, Mr. Smith asked Roberta, Mrs. Smith if she would marry him. Mrs. Smith happily and proudly said, yes!
Enjoy caring and sharing bunny loving days.

Wild Strawberry's

I guess you can blame my wild strawberry passion on the long cold drawn out winter.
I'm getting cabin fever too.
These scented strawberry's help to ease the cold Winter blues and they'll add some Spring aroma therapy to your space.
The berries come packed inside a pretty pink desert box along with jute string for hanging. In case you want to hang a berry rather than have it sit.
Enjoy a caring and sharing day.

My fascination and love for bags and pretty fabric inspired me to make these cosmetic pouches.
The pouch is the perfect size for holding keys, credit cards, cash or cosmetics.
They will be available at the Calico Petals shop soon.
They are $14 each and make a lovely gift.
Enjoy a caring and sharing day.

Petite Book Box

If you're new to Bittersweet then you probably don't know about our signature hand-made soap boxes.
I began designing these little boxes when Bittersweet was first born some eleven years ago. The "little box" idea originated from my lovely creative Mom's hands and has evolved into a beautiful tribute each and every time I construct a new box.
The "Petite Book Box" is a spin off from the keepsake boxes available at Bittersweet and found at Calico Petals.
They are designed to hold bits and pieces, ephemera, or possibly a bar of soap if you're so inclined:)
The designs are part of my exclusive vintage image collections, I have around a half million images, yes that is a considerable amount but for this graphic loving girl a must when designing and creating for both Bittersweet and Calico.
The designs change each year. I'm now really into a look I guess I'd call it, "Simple Country Cottage." A no frills vintage cottage look.
Enjoy caring and sharing days.

In Between

In Between Bittersweet and Calico, nice place to be I think, but of course I'm a tad bit bias!

The new web site is up and running well to most anyway, still having issues with AOL users, darn it! Anyway..

In between painting, phone calls, taxes, I took some time to make more "Love Bird Packets." What are they you ask? Well of course, they are inspired by my love for all things bird or "bird love." Inside, bird labels, vintage style bird images, bits and pieces of vintage ephemera.
Hopefully one-of-a-kind little packet of bird love.

Enjoy caring and sharing days.
