Love Forever....Burlap and Lace Pillows...

I don't know what it is about burlap and lace but I never seem to tire of it!  Some of the "experts" say that it's not as popular in home décor...but for me it will always be. 
I just finished this burlap pillow this morning.
I used a ton of lace.  I gathered and twisted it into rosettes and just left the ribbon hanging loose.

Making one burlap pillow is never enough.  So I made another!

Love this framed glass with a message...
Okay Sweetie-Pies....that's it for now.
Hope you get out there this week and create, make, photograph, sew, write, cook, repurpose or follow your passion, whatever it may be.  Don't forget to share with the rest of us!

Fall Temptations at Pottery Barn!

Oh Pottery Barn, why do you tempt me so??????? 
I was just going to stop in and just "look."  Not buy, just "look!"

That is until I saw this feather pillow.....
I had visions of you sitting on my living room sofa...
Mingling with the other pillows and snuggling next to my fall pumpkins!
 As always, you did not disappoint.

And then there was this sign that said, "20% off all baskets!"
All this pretty basket wanted was some flowers and center stage on my entry table.  Yeah baby, I'm happy to oblige!
Please tell me that I'm not the only one out there that has a thing for cute topiaries....couldn't resist the one next to the basket found at Tuesday Mornings.

Pottery Barn has some amazing Fall and Halloween décor but luckily I was able to pass it up.  I did see some pretty feathers but at 49.99 for a few feathers....I draw the line!

Okay, that's it for me.  Remember to get out there this week and create, make, sew, write, photograph, decorate, repurpose, craft and find something wonderful to share with all of us!


By the way Pottery Barn did not pay me to plug their store. (darn!)

Old Bed Springs, Burlap and Chalkboard Paint

What sup chicks!!!

 I've been creating a few things and thought I'd share. ( This is an older post)

What to do with a crate load of old bed springs....why make flower vases of course....
What do you do with an over abundance of burlap fabric scraps and doilies.....why make burlap flowers of course!

What to do with an old cabinet door and some chalk paint...why make a chalkboard of course.....
What to do with a sleepy cute kitty....why take a gazillion pictures of her of course!

That's it for now.  Remember to get out this week and create, make, sew, write, photograph, repurpose, cook, bake and find something wonderful and show it to us.....
