Birthday Wishes ~ Southern Belle Pillowcases












 Southern Belle Pillowcases

My birthday was Saturday.
I was 29 (again!).
My mother gave me the most beautiful hand embroidered pillowcases.  What a wonderful surprise.  She is  so talented!!  Her hand work is amazing.  I love that they are "pink"!  And.....  the lace!  it's almost 5" wide.  
Just gorgeous!!  I LOVE them!
Thank you..... Mom!

To celebrate my B-day......  my hubby and I spent the weekend "junk-in"!
Saturday we visited some historical towns along the Missouri river.  I love "river" towns!
I found lots of goodies!
My favorite item is an antique typewriter!  It still works perfectly!  I have wanted one for a while but couldn't find one that worked or that I could afford.  This one was a steel at only $25!  Antique typewriters are so beautiful!  I love the painted designs and labels.
Sunday we visited several local shops.  I have lots of wonderful treasures to share the few couple of weeks.
So.....  stay tuned.

Have a wonderful week!
Elizabeth

Elizabeth- First off-Happy, Happy Birthday to you! Secondly- I can't believe your Mom did those cases. I thought for sure they were vintage ones. They are gorgeous.

I found an old typewriter not too long ago too, it's a portable in a case and I just love it- my daughter actually found it for me-

Have a wonderful Birthday Week! xo Diana

Your pillow cases are just beautiful. In all my thrifting, I very seldom come across beautiful pillow cases - probably because they wear out from use. I did find a lovely set that I use at an estate sale, but I've been thinking about trying to make some myself - when I have free time :)
