Good morning to you all ~
Today I would like to share a few things I love about the fall season.
As many of you speak of fall ~ we are saying good-bye to summer, and the carefree days.
I remember moving into September as a young mother, and having to start that “routine” again. Getting the girls use to going to bed early for their early morning wake up. It was a bit of a hassle, but we always seem to come around by October.
Here are some of my favorites ~
Beautiful sign ~ go here for directions.
I can see this on a rustic Thanksgiving Table ~
For great fall table idea go here
Beautiful mantle ~ also in this post
This sweet wreath is so easy to make ~ I will be making this one.
To make go here
Hoping your day is beautiful.
Hi friends ~
I’m bringing something new to Etsy in a few weeks.
I would like to give you a little sneak peek
They are self binding receiving blankets & matching small pillow.
Blankets & pillows are made from quality material. All materials are from Missouri Star ⭐️⭐️
I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek.
Have a wonderful Saturday.
Hi Everyone ~
So many times I look to Pottery Barn for inspirational ideas. I usually wind up spending money on something I could make myself.
Today I was looking at the pillows on our Family Room couch, and wanted to change them for the spring & summer months. The navy blue pillows are very nice, but I thought maybe a little lighter for the warmer weather.
Here is my inspiration ~
I have this material……So…….decided to make it myself.
After cutting the material I realized I was 3″ to short.
What to do now…….I have the same material in red & cream – so I made a 3″ ruffle, and added vintage buttons.
I love it. The same, but with a little twist.
Tomorrow I will finish the other one.
So happy with the way they came out, and I saved $60.00
Hope you are having a wonderful evening.
Till next time.
Good Day to you all ~
I decided to change the shower curtain in the guest bath, so along with the shower curtains came garbage pail, tissue holder & soap pump.
The guest room is directly across from the guest bath, so having them the same colors well you know how that is.
I looked for 2 towels to go with all of the above. I was having a bit of a problem trying to find just the right color. Finally Bed Bath & Beyond had the perfect pink.
Pretty – YES – but, it needed something else.
I had some ribbon in pink and green, but not the right pink or green. Then I came across a lace that you can put ribbon through. Aah!!! that’s a perfect match.
Ten minutes later you have this.
My new sewing machine is amazing. It actually lets you know when you are getting close to a pin. That to me is close to perfect.
Subtle ~ but perfect.
If anyone is in the market for a new sewing machine look no longer.
Amazon has this one ~
It received so many good reviews, and the price was just right.
I’m still learning how to use many of the features, but youtube is great for this.
Have a wonderful Monday.
Good Morning Friends ~
I know I am late reopening my Etsy store, but it will be reopened on May 10th.
I have a few new things happening –
The first new piece of information – I am putting lots and lots of pretty little hearts in my store.
The hearts measure 4.5″ x 4″ ~ They all have vintage lace, and vintage buttons.
Here is the spring line ~
Each month there will be a special heart and that heart will be given a name and a 10% coupon discount which will appear in my Etsy store.
The button on this heart is made from a coconut, and it looks like a coffee bean. The fabric is coffee cups, and the same color little hearts.
This one has little bumble bee, and sunflowers.
For the month of May (since I am reopening the store in May)
The name of this heart is Guernsey which means ~
An island in the English Channel, finance, market gardening, dairy farming,
Here is the back ~ And it does remind me of an English Garden.
You can do the reverse on the fabric which looks like ~
And the back ~
Both way are so pretty.
Hope you will enjoy these pretty little hearts.
Have an amazing weekend.
Good morning ~
Today is my second craft ~
Garland for the Christmas tree. I saw this on Pinterest, and thought this would look so nice on our tree.
I have been wanting to put garland on our tree, but it had to be different.
So here it is ~
The products you will need are:
Red craft paint ~ I used Martha Stewart
Ribbon ~ I used cream burlap
Stencil ~ I used Merry Christmas here is the website
Stencil brush also Martha Stewart
Piece of cardboard or thick paper for under the ribbon ~ this is so you do not get the paint on your surface. The paint will bleed through the burlap.
How I made the garland.
Found the ribbon which is very fine burlap at Michael’s ~ It had the edges frayed already. This will saved a bit of time.
Placed the stencil in the center of the ribbon and taped both ends to the burlap ~this way the stencil does not move.
I started at the end of the ribbon placed the stencil down and painted ~ I then spaced 4″ between each “Merry Christmas”
Let it dry and rolled it back onto the spool it came on.
This entire process took about 45 minutes.
I am so happy with the way this turned out.
I will be posting my Christmas Home Tour after Thanksgiving.
Enjoy your day today.
