I made some of these luggage tags and a handle wrap for Peggy to use on her travels last year. Now I have had a request from another sibling for a set:
Several readers have also asked for the pattern. You can find the luggage tag here:
The handle wrap pattern is part of a Moda Bakeshop Tutorial.
I don’t have a set of these but Peggy tells me they were very helpful when she was trying to spot her bag.
The people who built our house made some very clever decisions when they planted the garden. One of the features we love is the silk tree by the patio. It provides shade in the summer but is bare for maximum light in our Sunroom over winter.
It has just started to flower. Such lovely pretty fragile blossoms.
Op shop treasure:
I put items up on Trade Me (NZ Ebay) for the Opshop I volunteer at. I often bring things home for deep cleaning and/or polishing. These Vintage Shoe stretchers came in this week.
I have started to polish them – see the right side of the right hand stretcher?
They speak to me of a more elegant time. Engraved on them are the words “Carr Shoe Co” On the underside 2-4 Made in England Patent Number 176633.I think they are going to look super when I have finished with them.
……………and just because I can, clouds at sundown a few days ago.
