Out Of the Closet

Someone bravely asked to see the closet - so here it is. Actually it's about four closets. We lived in Dublin, Ireland several years ago and the house we lived in, although lovely, had absolutely no closets built into it. This made it necessary to purchase free standing wardrobes which fortunately followed us home. They have provided the perfect storage for my 'grandma's closet'. The best thing that came home from Ireland with us is my now 14 year old son. He was born during our stay there and is a killer soccer player and a really terrific kid. (Not so much into heirloom clothes though!)


I will be on the lookout for a new corner to stash things in after BATB in October. All the garments from the 'Cute As A Button' book along with several AS&E projects are still in Australia and should be coming home with me. Hailey (4) and Jorden (7) should fit into a few of them and baby Jane will be just right this winter for the bunny jacket and bishop from the book. Can't wait to kidnap her for a dress up session.

  1. Of course, you know that many of us will now just want to be adopted in order to have access to that closet, too! What fun!

  2. What a blessing! I hope I can build such a "Grandma's Closet," for the time when my little lovelies come along. I just bought your book "Sew Cute Couture" and can hardly decide which combination to do first and for whom of my three girls. So nice to "meet" you!

    Warmly,
