mod podge and markets.......

I have a new best comes in many shapes and sizes and has a very groovy font...I know I'm a little late to the party for Mod Podge crushes but now I know what all the fuss is about :).....

it helped me turn my cute little vintage cases into these :)

and also on the inside....

I am planning lots more Mod Podging activities...if you would like to know how to do the outside of the suitcase there is a fab tutorial over here

......other non Mod Podge related news is that littleteawagon cushions and bunting have been featured in   Prima June 2012 Craft Supplement Magazine. Its a really lovely little mag with lots of nice ideas for making and sewing like this.......

.....also this weekend I will be packing my ModPodged little cases full of bags and bunting and prints and vintage supplies and heading down to the Magpies and I vintage craft market in Altrincham...this is not something I do very often ( I like to hide away in my little garden shed mostly ) but a very lovely new friend....oooh betty  has invited me to share a stall with her and her very lovely vintagey and retro could I refuse?... we will no doubt spend the afternoon chatting and drinking lots of tea and getting quite giddy :)

so with that I will wish you a very happy weekend.. 
I know its only Thursday but I am thinking ahead  :)

a post about not posting.....

...I know I have been neglecting this blog recently....but I have been a busy bee in my little shed in the garden...when the sun was shining.....when the rain was lashing....when the moon came out. I was hidden away with just my radio, my sewing machine and occasionally a small dog.. when the fancy took him.....I'll be back properly soon ..

have a lovely weekend

From Sunshine to the City

Hello lovely followers,

I'm finally on summer vacation since I am done with my final exams and moved back home to South Florida. As many of you may know from my previous post or my Twitter, I am interning in NYC this summer at an advertising/marketing agency on Park Avenue and living in the city from end of May to beginning of August! Through this life-changing experience, I will be blogging alongside three of my friends (also from Florida, hence the name) of our experience living in the city, interning in the city, and all of the adventures that come our way.
