Hold it!

Your hairbows, that is!
I've been making these hairbow holders for several months now for a little shop here in town. I had an order to fill and a few samples to make for another little shop so I'm sharing these as my post.

Have a great weekend!

Just charming

What do you do after a long day at work?
How about dinner and a movie?
No, me neither.
I had dinner, bacon and eggs, but alas, no movie!
I actually spent part of the evening making wine charms and now I'm ready to settle in for some crime!
I'm hooked on Criminal Minds, somehow I missed it on primetime tv and discovered it in reruns on cable.
I'm hooked I tell ya, hooked!
Anyway, here are some of the wine charms I worked on tonight

...I gotta get back to the tv!

Happy Wednesday Ya'll

I've been bitten

By the burlap bug!

And this weekend was the first time my sewing machine has been out of the closet in 4 years!

I had these old pillows in the closet that didn't work with my decor anymore so I decided to try out my burlap idea on them.

I cut stencils out of poster board.
Used a soft fabric paint and stencil brush...

Sewed the 16 x 16 square and Ta Da!

How about some tassels?

And a button?

I know you can't see me
but I'm doing my happy dance! LOL!

A special thank you to my muse for this project: Jen.
She has shared many awesome burlap and
pillow projects at Tater Tots and Jello

I'm sharing this post on the blog of each of the
lovely ladies below!

Sunshine Day - Tablescape Thursday

This is not the tablescape I intended to do. I started out with blue plates and snowmen and ended up with this breakfast table instead!

I've had these cherry measuring spoons so long I don't remember where they came from but
they are very well loved.

This was made by a special friend, Barbara Delmont. We met as members of the Garner Woman's Club.

Strawberry preserves made by MaMa

Teapot from my hubby, my favorite color.

Cow creamer from Pier 1 just this past Christmas!

Thank you Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Tablescape Thursday! My most favorite post of the week!
