Tennis Anyone?

Wimbledon starts today and is one of my favorite tennis tournaments of the year. The eyes are on London this year with the Diamond Jubilee, and Olympics all being this year, so I have a feeling Wimbledon is going to be even better this year!

Vintage Souvenir Scarves

I am in vacation mode, I have 14 days until we leave for our Caribbean vacation which led me to feature this post about Vintage Souvenir Scarves! Beginning in the 1930s, maps were screen-printed onto various types of textiles such as tablecloths, scarves and tea towels and sold in souvenir shops across the nation. Today, they can be used in various projects whether framed, made into pillows, cushions, etc!
