fruits and veggies from my garden

I wanted to make fruits and veggies for a while now, I started of with strawberry and raspberry, now I am mmoving on to eggplant ( my favorite!) pumpkin and apple. they are adorable :) I attached them to pins so the owner can use them as brooches or pendants :)

fall colors oak leaves and flowers-chirimen

I uploaded more photos of my vintage kimono fabric collection, Ok I dont have yards of these fabrics, they are pieces of kimono, but they are soooo beautiful. every now and then I find some stains on them but I guess I can get rid of those. dry cleaning these pieces would be too expensive, so for now I am preserving them in my house. apparently instead of folding them I should roll them. Thank God I work a lot and turn all of them into a bag or a anti tarnish pouch, so they dont feel lonely for a long time :)
