The lemons are courtesy of one of the many citrus trees in our yard. I decided today to go out and clip all of them off the tree, because they are overripe and making the tree work harder with them dangling on there. I decided to make a nice lemon table decoration out of some of them. They are Meyer lemons I believe, and there are tons of them!!
I also managed to whip up two darling pinafores for the shop yesterday. I just need to put the buttonholes and buttons on them and they will up for sale. The little one fits 12/18 month size, and the bigger one is a 2/3. I will be making some linen ones soon I think, and those might have some pockets and embroidery on them. The ones above were made out of beautiful vintage German fabric from the 1930's. The fabric was in excellent condition, and the color is so vibrant. I wish I had a big enough piece of it to make myself an apron or or something, but they were all pretty small pieces. I found it at the Alemeda Flea market, from this wonderful vendor that I have bought linens from before.
Summer is now here in full force with hot temps! Yikes is what I always say, because of our severe drought situation and possible fires this season, it's going to be a scary one! Coming soon (not saying when for safety reasons) I'm tagging along with David on his business trip to England and Germany. It will be fun to see Nicole again, and going to Germany is going to be a nice visit, because some friends are getting married, and it happen to coincide with David's business trip there! I'm excited to see Nicole and our friends. It will definitely will be the highlight of the summer for us.
Hope everyone has a delightful weekend!
