My Favorite Things....Birthday Extravaganza - 5

Day 5 

 My Favorite Things Birthday Extravaganza 
Today is a special gift to brighten your day! 


I don’t even have to tell you (but I will) how I {heart} Marie-Madeline Studio!  Here is a little about them:

The idea for our family business was hatched in the winter of 2006, when we girls began sewing one-of-a-kind handbags for family and friends.  We officially launched marie-madeline studio in December 2007.  Since then, our creative endeavors have grown to include bags of all shapes and sizes, aprons, little girls' clothing, and ladies' clothing.  Our exclusive marie-madeline sewing patterns debuted this year, and our favorite fabric lines are now available to our customers through our online fabric store!  The ready-made products we offer are all handcrafted, by the five of us, in our home studio.  Thank you for taking time to stop by our little corner of the world!

I checked out the etsy site and loved all of the apron patterns. But really caught my eye were the handmade dishcloths.

I stopped by your store and love it! A few things I would like on my wish list are the gracie ruffle skirt mid-calf length for little girls, the custom tessa bloomer and matching bag (kids would just love that), and the custom crafted chic sister apron. My apron is so old and honesty not as cute and stylish as yours. Great site and great business.

I love their handbags. The little red with white polka dot one is adorable, however, I am more of a messenger size lugger.

What can I say about your blog that I haven't already.... I love your craftiness, your motivation, and your upbeat spirit. I look forward to reading your posts and your thrifty finds. Thanks for being you, Melis !
