Jess, thank you so much for finding these. Absolutely love the poppy pins, and Grosgrain blog is such a wonderful find - I'll spend many hours trawling through their projects - inspiration, indeed!

Those people from Krylon are geniuses.

Also thought it said "puppy" boutonniere. Which made me think, I need a dog pin.

PS - Did you too have to spell check boutonniere?

Did you watch the video for the fabric covered drawer pulls? It totally made me laugh - they did everything so "neatly", glue everywhere, jagged edges left on the back - Martha would weep.

I didn't watch it--sounds funny!

I made the shoulder bag over the summer as an re-introduction to sewing and I love it. It's adorable and was fairly simple to make. I'd be glad to send you a picture of it, if you'd like!

I am going to a winery in Connecticut this weekend and am SO excited about making a gift bag to share my finds with my friends.

Great timing on this project!
