Now, the only sample I could get is a little too yellow, but don't let whoever does it go to the other extreme and get it too blue. It should just be a sort of grayish-yellow-green. Now, the dining room. I'd like yellow. Not just yellow; a very gay yellow. Something bright and sunshine-y. I tell you, Mr. PeDelford, if you'll send one of your men to the grocer for a pound of their best butter, and match that exactly, you can't go wrong! Now, this is the paper we're going to use in the hall. It's flowered, but I don't want the ceiling to match any of the colors of the flowers. There's some little dots in the background, and it's these dots I want you to match. Not the little greenish dot near the hollyhock leaf, but the little bluish dot between the rosebud and the delphinium blossom. Is that clear? Now the kitchen is to be white. Not a cold, antiseptic hospital white. A little warmer, but still, not to suggest any other color but white. Now for the powder room - in here - I want you to match this thread, and don't lose it. It's the only spool I have and I had an awful time finding it! As you can see, it's practically an apple red. Somewhere between a healthy winesap and an unripened Jonathan. Oh, excuse me..."

What I have been up to....

Let me say, I have been sewing. Just some of my projects have been for my family lately, siblings mostly, and they don't want their pictures up here. =)

But, I will share one of my current sewing projects. It is a 1950s pajama Capri set. Using "Ava Rose" fabric that I bought in Marie-Madeline's latest bundle sale. Plus some brown vintage rick-rack (it is made out of cotton!), pink vintage/retro buttons, and a vintage Butterick pattern. You have the recipe for one cute pair of pajamas! =)  

I'm making view C, the one in the back. My Capri's are made out of the stripe fabric. While the hem binding and strings that lace up the sides are made out of the rose fabric you see above, but in a darker shade of pink. The top will be made out the rose fabric you see above and trimmed with vintage rick-rack.

I am also working on a headband tutorial for this week, which will be featured on another blog! So exciting! I will let you all know when that is up. =)

Um, lets see here. Oh, this week I was to make something from the 1930s, you know for that sewing challenge, but I couldn't find the perfect inspiration. Oh well, this week is the 1940s and I'm going to have a hard time narrowing down my favorites I would like to sew. ;-) And next week is the 1950s! My favorite era!

I'm thinking on doing a post on some of my favorite Old Time Radio Shows, and where I find them on the internet to download, for free! Would any of you be interested in this?


We have a winner!

We now have our winner for the swimsuit eBook giveaway! Are you all ready to hear who won? Of course you are! =)

It's Blog Parade Time!

Rebecca at Sewing in the Past is having a blog parade. And I decided to join in! I am to list ten things that make me happy. So without further ado, ten things that make me happy with a vintage twist (the images). =)

Things That Make Me Happy

 1. Going on vacations with my family across the country. 

2. Having camp-outs (slumber parties)  on the weekends with my brother and sisters. 

3. Listening to Old-Time Radio Shows on my ipod.

4. Doing too many sewing projects at one time. =)

5. Reading a good book that makes me stay up too late. ;-)

6. Eating ice-cream. Any flavor is fine, just about, but mint-chocolate chip is my favorite!

7. Finding wonderful findings at antique malls/stores.

8. Opening up presents and also giving presents to others. I have a hard time keeping presents a secret during Christmas time. I always want to tell everyone what I got them. :P

9. Receiving a new comment and follower on Bramblewood Fashion.

10. Having a tea party! The best part of a tea party? Dressing up of course! =)

Now for some exciting news. Today I bought all the supplies I need to make my own bathing suit! How exciting is that?!?!?! I can not wait to start making it. I also bought fabric for a formal I need this Fall. Now I just need to decided on WHAT my formal is going to look like. AND if I am going to draft my own pattern, or use a ready-made pattern. Any ideas on what I could do for my formal? The color of my fabric is dark purple. And I'm open to any ideas, modern or vintage. 

Well, tomorrow or Monday I'm going to have a surprise for you all on the blog. And no, it isn't the opening of my etsy shop. Still haven't figured out to do for shipping yet. That is the only thing holding me back for opening up my shop.
