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 ~

https://www.amazon.com/SINGER-9960-600-Stitch-Computerized-Accessories/dp/B004RDH7Y8/ref=sr_1_22?s=arts-crafts&ie=UTF8&qid=1494869036&sr=1-22&keywords=sewing+machine

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.

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 ~

garland

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

http://www.homesteadstencilco.com/store/Default.asp

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.

garland-1

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.

garland-3

Placed the stencil in the center of the ribbon and taped both ends to the burlap ~this way the stencil does not move.

garland-2

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.

What a difference

Hi my friends ~

It took awhile, but I finally got around to post the painted banister.

Pete worked so long, and so hard to get the banister perfect, what an amazing job he did.

The staircase looks so pretty now ~ before it was so boring and plain.

We had a local carpenter do the molding, and we did the wainscoting ourselves.

The wainscoting is ~(Martha Stewart wallpaper) ~ we purchased it at Home Depot.

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Martha-Stewart-Living-56-sq-ft-1-Double-Roll-Beadboard-Paintable-Wallpaper-02-003/202229620

I want to do the same thing in our Dining Room (that’s for another day)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I think the weather is going to be super.

Much love,

A Little Spring around the house

Hi Friends ~

Yesterday I went to Michaels.  So many things were on sale which was so good for me.

In my last post ~ I shared with you the pretty daisies that was given to me ~ I loved how they looked so I wanted to duplicate the look.

As I was walking around Michaels I saw this cute little mason jar perfect for the base. Right next to the little jars were clusters of flowers.  I purchased a cluster of pansies, and another cluster of small little yellow and white flowers.

I cut all the stems away from the cluster ~ which left me with 8 stems from each cluster.     I am working with 16 stems.

The mason jar was $3.49

The 2 clusters of flowers were $1.99 ea. ~ So for $7.50 I have flowers all spring & summer.

Here is the finished product.

I love how it came out ~
