Welcome to Yankee Girl Dry Goods!

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
My name is Michelle Blanco.  I grew up in western Massachusetts where my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and sew, and to bake the best apple pies!  The name Yankee Girl came from my love of all things Massachusetts.  I love to use antiques and vintage items in everything I create whenever possible. Knowing that the things I create are comprised of objects with a history of their own makes it even more special.  

 

Please feel free to reach out to me to purchase, with any questions you might have, or even just to say hello; I would love to hear from you!

This has been my favorite finish this month! I think I’m pretty smitten with these Nantucket Style baskets and love stitching sweet designs for the inside. This particular design was stitched using a pattern from a book by Blackbird Designs. I added a tiny pair of scissors with a sweet plump strawberry that is filled with wool scraps and is the perfect size for my little basket. It is 51/2” long x 5” wide. Kindly asking $75.00 and $10.00 for travel. The weave in this basket makes me think of a **Beeskep**

Antique quilts have so much history. I love using them in my creations. The quilt I used for this was one that had seen better days. The quilt was over 100 years old and showing a lot of wear so I salvaged what I could to make these wonderful pinkeeps. The pinkeep is a beautiful tan and reddish-pink color that I embellished with an old button, a tiny bone ring and two antique glass swirl pins. Around the quilt I stitched antique ric-rac and then added glass beads to that. The pinkeep is 5” long and filled with wool scraps and sits firmly in a tan and red floral fabric covered papier-mâché lid. I am including the tiny 1” velvet strawberry fob I made and the bronze scissors. Kindly asking $65.00 and $10.00 for travel fare.

I have collected these antique baking tins for years. This one is 3.5” long x 3” wide. I used a pretty red print fabric I had in my stash and stuffed it firmly with wool scraps. It is firmly attached to the tin. I added two black straight pins, a silver heart charm, and a mother of pearl button. I stitched another antique button to the center. I am including the tiny 1” wool strawberry fob I made and the tiny silver scissors. Kindly asking $45.00 and $10.00 for travel fare.
