Just a simple place to sit back, relax and enjoy some vintage splendor!

I spent my Halloween sorting through amaing boxes of yarn that I purchased months ago and never had a chance to examine. If I only had the time to list them all. I bought about 30 apple and banana boxes full of vintage yarns. Most of them are European wools, mohairs and other natural fibers including cashmere. I can't wait to dive into them again. Hopefully, I have the chance to list them all soon. That means having a huge "Yarn Sale" in my shop. http://inwiththeoldvintage.etsy.com/.
I was able to take my 2 yr. old trick or treating for the 1st time. I missed last year because I was at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX. We had a blast . She caught on pretty quick. At first she refused to wear her costume, but when she found out there was candy involved, she couldn't get in it fast enough.
I took the time to make her costume, since I missed out last year. She went as a flower fairy. We also decorated the house with homemade ghosts, jack-o-lanterns and monster hands. Max sat quietly through most of the commotion. We skipped the costume this year since he's only 2 months old. He did seem to enjoy wearing Kate's hairband though. All in all, it was a great few days leading up to Halloween.
