Welcome to Hollyhocks! I am so glad you're here. I am really new to the whole blog thing. Can you tell? I plan to post at least weekly. Here are some things you'll find when you visit:
Photos of vintage finds from estate sales and thrift shops. Sure, I know what you're thinking...this is how she'll justify the purchases to the husband..."They're for the blog". Shhh, that will be our little secret.
Recipes...Mostly baking, often chocolate.
Sewing and quilting projects and tutorials (this one is still a WIP after 3 years!)
Fun, easy craft projects
Finds with great graphics (vintage wallpaper and dollar store stationery)
...and photos of charming houses and gardens.
In the next few weeks, you'll find posts about a sunporch redo with Amy Butler fabrics, a small space garden project complete with antique bricks and a bricklaying tutorial, a chair seat upholstering tutorial using iron-on vinyl (amazing stuff) and some crafts using vintage quilt pieces (don't worry, no intact quilts were harmed for this project). There will also be ideas for using thrifted cashmere sweater pieces. In the future I also hope to link to my Etsy shop to offer craft kits (does anybody know how to do that?). Thank you for visiting! I look forward to seeing you here often. While you are visiting my blog, I will probably be curled up with a cup of tea, visiting yours.
