For years I have been drooling over Susan Gowers delicious trims and notions booth at antique and quilt shows on the east coast. What a pleasant surprise to see her at Fall Quilt Market in Houston. Some of the antique buttons that I used in my blog banner were bought from Susan.
Here she is with Ric & Rac...
Susan graciously allowed me to capture many of the displays that she had in her booth. I took so many pictures of her beautiful things that it made better sense to put them all in a new flickr photo album! You can see them by clicking on my right side bar titled Nifty Thrifty Dry Goods...
Meanwhile, if you are ever in Providence Rhode Island you can find her things at "REFIND" a store at 436 Wickenden Street.
Hope you find the photos of her displays as inspiring as I do, I just love things done by color palette, and I am endlessly fascinated with trims, buttons & ric rac. Imagine the possibilities girls!
Back in two shakes...H2
PS on an inspiring and hopeful note, Gretchen one of our recent blog commenters has told me that there is an online petition forming in support of the Obama's adopting a rescue dog at the Best Friends Network. See what they are up to and support homeless animals across the country...And if you haven't taken 5 minutes to email Oprah a suggestion...What's keeping you ??? X;º)
