I learned a new term in sewing this week. I had bought a piece of lingerie and thought they where just ruffles but it is called ruching it’s a way of bunching fabric.To achieve this effect you gather fabric in repeated fashion to form pleats. It adds style to a piece. It is a very tedious technique that has been used throughout history.
Here is an example of beautiful ruching:

So this past weekend my parents and I drove to Wisconsin to help my grandparents with the Elkhorn flea market On the first day was Saturday we set up right around one 1:00 pm., After helping with that I decided to look around for a bit and saw I few things that I loved but couldn’t afford on both days of the flea. Lots of people wouldn’t let me take photos of any of their stuff which is understandable. One of the items I loved was an art deco table shown below:
art deco table
i loved this table art deco mixed with naked ladies done. But sadly my pockets weren’t big enough.
dress-form with newspaper print
This beautiful dress-form covered with newsprint fabric caught my eye and then the tag lead them away. All of them that where there where in my opinion, overpriced .
fire extinguisher lamp
I thought this was so cool! An old fire extinguisher turned into a lamp.it takes a very creative mind to combine these two.
