Introducing the Roots and Wings Collection!

I'm so excited to announce my Roots and Wings Collection to you this week! I've been working late hours at the sewing machine, to prepare a collection of pillows, tote bags, caps and more. Here's a sampling of products that will be available later this week in my etsy shop! There's lots of cute camper pillows that would be great to decorate your vintage glamper and burlap pillows with wings and qoutes. 

The bed of my camper is full of pillows and bags!

I love the tv show Nashville - When I heard the song Roots and Wings sang by Sam Palladio and Gunnar Sizemore, I immediately downloaded it! Love, love, love it! 

"So many place I wanna go
So many people I wanna know
I wanna stay
I wanna leave
I want it all
I've got to believe 

You can have Roots and Wings
You can have everything 
You can know where you're from 
and still wanna fly"

I came across a beautiful fabric wing at a garage sale and together it all inspired the collection.

Then there's the fabulous vintage Shasta campers with wings and my love for glampers, so that all fell into line with the theme. There's going to be several camper shopping tote bags with different color campers with assorted lace trims and fringe.

The double wings and heart are another favorite. Layers of old script or French postage stamp fabric are included with doilies, lace, and old hankies to create shabby chic, distressed wings. 
"What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?" -e.h.  Last year, as I contemplated making big changes I my life, this quote would always pop up on my Instagram or pinterest feed, at just the right time! It was an encouraging word to me, to believe in my dreams and go far it. I'm planning on keeping one of these pillows in my camper.

There's also going to be a couple caps with a cross, wing and flower.

I've heard the dodge commercial with Miranda Lambert's Roots and Wings song and love it as well! We are both from the same area (I'm about an hour from her Pink Pistol store in Texas,) so I can definitely relate to having red dirt stains on my boots and jeans, calloused fingers, tall pine trees and some of the things she sings about. Sure hoping the song will be released soon, because I can't wait to hear the rest of it! Jeff's been hearing my music playing from the workroom and he ask if I had anything other than Miranda, George Strait and Nashville on my playlist? The answer: that's about it!

There's going to be several vintage seed sack pillows included in the #RootsandWingsCollection. Farming, seeds, roots - all seem to go together. These are all vintage seed sacks and would be great in your farmhouse decor. I've still got to photograph a few more, before the collection goes live.
