Sneak peek fabric book vintage children - Simply Neutrals #24

fabric and lace journal by AppleApricot

A dear facebook friend of mine, Odetta, asked me to do a swap with her.
You can see the gorgeous package I received HERE.

I made her a little fabric book, among other things.
Today I only share a little sneak peek.
And I will share more of it in another post later this week.


If you're wondering where my pinterest boards have gone...
I made them secret boards for a little while,
because I'm going through all my pins to check their copyright and right links
and will delete all spam links and pins that we're not allowed to pin.
My boards will probably appear public again one by one
when I consider them "clean".
So please bear with me. And thank you for your patience.


Pam of Nest in The Attic made this sweet and beautiful wire birds nest with pearl eggs.
Oh my, I'm in love...

Nancy of Sugar Lump Studios shared this beautiful and oh so sweet little vintage baby dress,
which she altered and embellished and made even sweeter.

on how she made some beautiful pillow cases.

June 21
July: no parties!
August 9

(and so on)


On to this week's party!


What neutral coloured beauty did you find or make or buy or receive?

Post anything in neutral colours,
be it cream, white, grey, beige, silver and/or brown.

A creation you made or received, home decoration, a statue or architecture, or anything out there that you were allowed to take a photo of.

so no worries please about being late at the party, let alone "too late".
There simply can't be a too late here :)


  1. Thank you again so very much for the feature Wen! You're such a sweet bloggy friend!

    Even with just a sneak peek I can see your fabric book will look so beautiful! xx

    1. You're so welcome, dear Pam! And thank you for your sweet words :) xx

  2. Looking forward to the full reveal of your fabric book. I have tried to follow back several pins (hoping to find the maker) and it's practically impossible at lot of the time. I often google myself and see who has pinned my work and mostly am surprised to see that proper credit has been given. The few times there wasn't, I have simply made a comment on the pin and usually I get a very apologetic response and credit is given. I don't get bent out of shape over it, but it's nice to be able to give proper credit.

    1. Thank you so much, Mary Ann! It is quite difficult a lot of times to track back the owner of a photo or creative work on pinterest, yes, I noticed, lol :) But I'd love to be able to give proper credit too, so let's see how far I get. xx

  3. I am already in love with the fabric book, from your sneak peek dear Wendy.
    I love the butterfly, and all the "fat" whiteness and laces , you created.
    And I so agree with you about the features this week, -the nest, the dress and pillows, are each beauties in their own way !
    Sending you warm hugs, and kisses.
    From Dorthe
