Portabello Pixie ~ Sandi Henderson

Cute! This girl is just plain CUTE! Her blog is delightfully designed with music that I don't turn down.
Portabello Pixie..........another cute name.
Where are people coming up with such cute names?


Sandi is a Jack.........or I should say a Jane of all craft trades. She takes amazing photographs.........I want to know what lenses she's using.
She designs and sews the most adorable and amazing children's clothing. I'd wear these......wouldn't you?And the biggy is...........she designed her own fabric line. Yes...........she did. Just to prove it to you, it's called Ginger Blossom and it's right here.

She went for it. She even has a whole post on How to Design Fabric. Very interesting. (no I didn't link you......you'll have to head over and enjoy yourself looking around)Sandi is an old soul at the ripe age of 27. She is attracted to fun, anything vintage and all things turquoise. Love what she did with this side table. Painting it a distressed turquoise is so original. Look at that pear and apple! So cute sitting there matching the drawer pull. I LOVE THAT!She also re-did this red thingy. Great re-purpose, perfect for holding crafty things, so dang cute.........she calls it a Who Ha Holder???...........Um........maybe it's just me... But this is not a Who Ha. If you know what I mean. But I love it just the same.

Tutorials! And FREE patterns............GO!...........wait, I'm not done yet.It's all there..........the pattern for this cute butterfly and so much more.More shots of her fabric line. I think it's just amazing how it all mixes and matches. That's talent. She is one talented woman. I'm so thrilled for her...........really. I am.I could have posted so many more photos........but I want you to head over and check them out for yourself, because she has really great posts that go along with them. She's a gem. And she has cute kids.

Oh.......and she just finished up a little event with Flat Betty. Remember her? I had Flat Betty in December........love the shoes.
