Sweet Little Sewing Cabinet

 Today's post will be short and sweet.
Mostly because I'm busy this week at our county fair and every time I sit down to write a post, I get interrupted. Fair week is a crazy-busy-fun week, that's for sure!

This little sewing stand was green when we got it. It was in very good shape, but I just didn't care for the shade of green.
 So I painted it with CeCe Caldwell Virginia Chestnut.
 Then I added some American Paint Company's Tumbleweed.
 I really like the two colors together and the way they make it look old and a little worn.
Here is the tray on the inside, in Tumbleweed, with some cute vintage buttons and pretty spools of thread.
 Just looking at this makes me wish I could sew well.
But my only real sewing skills are buttons.
I need to learn how to use the sewing machine, or at least thread it so I can use it! :)
Because it matched the stand so well, I got out my mom's old sewing bag, one of the things I kept after cleaning the house out a few years ago.
And look what I found inside... some vintage pattern books that my mom had. 
I always find the most interesting things when I'm putting together a display for photos. 

That's it for today. Hope you all have a great one! For me, it's back to the hectic schedule of the fair...
