Sleeping bunny...freebie

Isn't this a sweet sleeping bunny!
Probably dreaming of carrots...and cadbury eggs!
This would be sweet on a tea towel....or of pillowcases.
Be sure to come back next Friday for...
awake bunny!
I just took pics of some my Easter signs
I love this purple.
It has always been my favorite color.
Do you remember the Peter cottontail movie for kids made back in like 1970?
It featured Vincent price as the bad bunny.
I LOVED that as a kid!
The Easter bunny had to deliver more eggs than the bad bunny to become the new Easter bunny...serious stuff!
I love how peeps look, but they are so sugary.
I love sugar, but it is too much for me.
One of my favorite candies besides cadbury eggs ....are black jelly beans!
What's your favorite Eater candy?
My mom (the Easter bunny) used to put strange sugar eggs in our basket...that were hard and hollow....they don't make them anymore....thank goodness.
Have a happy Friday!

Sharing random stuff...

Sometimes I just like to share random stuff with you.
The pincushion I made above has a Tudor feel...just something I made from one of my old embroidered table cloths....I hoard these things.
I added a bottle cap pin and banner pin that says queen.
This items are on my Mrs. Tiddlemouse shop

This is another finished item...a vintage fabric mannequin dress form.
It has a tulle pink skirt ...a necklace, cameo, and banner pin.
This one is very pretty and girly!

I finished some more party hats...some for Easter.
I love the saying "Cutest egg in the basket".

I used some pretty cute fabric!

I love Alexander Henry cool.

This on has a pink glitter frame around the word "Inspire"
This is my tree next to my studio.
This is also our never ending snow.
We had a muddy-brown Christmas....but now it is a
Marshmallow world.....go figure.
This is the little peaceful retreat between my house and my studio building.
The picnic table is just covered!
Usually the birds are having fun birds in sight right now.
This is part of my backyard.
We have a marshmallow cooking
Covered of course.
I'm sick of this snow!
At least the sun is shining!
Survivor tonight......yes!!!!

Vintage steampunk Mannequin dress form

I have been having the funnest time making my mannequins to sell....
I have not made any in a while....they are addicting.
This is a medium size mannequin....made from Tim Holtz fabric.
It measures: 14 1/2" high...8" wide. 
My mom used to call me tiddlemouse.
It has a has a dyed cheesecloth tie around the waist, a buckle on the cheesecloth belt, a gear near the bottom, pins, more gears, Huge rusty wire wings, a wool heart with safety pin at the top, a brown spool of thread, and a brass/black stand. You can use this for you sewing supplies or to display your jewelry.  
I kinda hope it doesn't I can just keep it.
As if I need another pincushion. 
I attached the thread....with a can be replaced later when it is all used up.
It is hard to see, but I aged the brass stand with some cool black metal patina stuff.
There are mini, medium, large, Santa, and witch. 
  I found the wire ...there is no is a one of a kind.
My daughter and I sometimes go hunting around for rusty items by the railroad tracks.
It is pretty close to us and it is like treasure hunting.
By the way....there is a fun new show called "Thrift hunters" on Spike TV......It is so much fun,
but I warn will want to go thrift shopping right after watching the show.

Come to Fancy this Fridays

Peacock Gumdrop collages

Good day to you!
I wanted to share my Daughter Selina's collages of her photography.
Selina is 16...a sophomore in high school with her own Etsy shop...
I am a very proud mother!

Her berry pics are so pretty.
She loves taking photos of nature.
Our area is Washington state is full of berries in every form!
Selina also love taking pics of ducks and swans...especially at our Riverfront park!

Pretty flowers.
Selina has a real eye for this!

She LOVES old buildings and loves to age them even more!

I had to throw in her latest rims.
Some old auto shops here in Spokane love to make fences out of old rims....cracks me up.

Please check out her shop sometime!

Lil Lamb- such a sweetie

Isn't this a sweet lamb.
I love how the eyes are goofy!
I changed it alittle here....the eyes are a bit better.
I remember making a lamb fluffy in grade school by adding cotton balls to a paper lamb. 
Wow...we sure have come a long way since then...huh!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Find something you're passionate about
and keep tremendously interested in it.

Sweet Mini mannequin pincushions

I had fun sewing last Saturday...with a group of sweet ladies.
I sewed up some cool party hats, large mannequins and
I made some mini mannequins....
This rose mannequin in my Mrstiddlemouse etsy Shop.
I love the floral fabric and the doily apron.  It has the cutest banner pin that says "Love".
They measure: 8" high...2 3/4" wide.
I love the fabric....tape measuring sticks.  I added a lock to the waist.
I have made a lot of these the past few years....they are fun create since I have so much fabric (like you) and it is like playing dress up.

These mini mannequins are fun to make and are so adorable. The tomato pincushions are so quick and fit onto your spool of thread.
Both designs take only scraps and make great gifts!

These pincushions are so easy too! What a useful tool to have by your side because they are small and easily accessible.
The mannequin and tomato make great gifts, friendship swaps,
and fabulous sellers at craft shows. 
Something to think about....
A good idea will keep you awake during the morning,
but a great idea will keep you awake during the night.

Hey ladies!
Just wanted to share my
I will be putting on many more too...of different Easter, steam punk, floral, Americana....etc.

Here it is on my daughter....had to grab her before going off to school.
This hat is perfect for a St. Patricks' day party! It is light, extremely comfortable, & clip on snuggly. You won't even know it is on your head. No longer do you have to have a strap or headband to have your lil party hat stay on. It has a fluffy green tulle hat brim with extra trims, a "Party O'Animal" banner with glitter...and green seam binding trim.  This could be for children or adults. This measures: 7 " wide at hat brim x 6 1/2" tall.
On another note....
I have to put back on the comment moderation -word verification...
I had to many spammers trying to post gross links on my site.....yuck!
Sometimes spammers think my site is a travel holiday site and also try to link up their trip links.
So...please comment when you want.....and I am sorry you will have to put those crazy numbers and letters in...from word verification.
