Fall the best season

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.

Pottery Barn Inspired Pillow with a twist

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.

Ten Minute Fix

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.

new bathroom 5

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.

Much love,

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.

spring hearts 1

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,

spring hearts

Here is the back ~ And it does remind me of an English Garden.

Christmas Tree Garland

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

Painters Tape

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.

Much love,
