Christy Bennett had an idea a year ago and after lots of consideration she has launched what I deem to be the next best thing from this world. Are you ready??? Pre-made, lined, drapes!!!! I just think this is an idea that will be a huge hit!! I am over the moon excited. Once they find Darling Drapery they’ll just have to deal with which ones to get!!!! So many possibilities and she makes it affordable!!! Christy I think you are on the tipping point of something big and I know it is going to take off!!! throw drapes up and have a party!!!! Match some pillows and you are good to go. Congrats Christy!!So get over to Etsy and take a look at her collection. I know you will love what you see….which room will you tackle first?
So I took a bunch of candle sticks and spray painted them gold!! While they were drying I took those cardboard cones wrapped old wallpaper and tinsel around and made a lovely forest of Christmas trees. I’m finding my true north and trying to always top last years handmades..it’s not easy sometimes I think where is my creativity!!! Like any creative if you don’t use it you get a bit stale but I am in the groove and ideas are flying now i need to catch up with them. #sleepless nights. I hope you come this year. Make the trek and see how much fun we have here!! Invite below in previous post. So here are the trees. $45.00 each.
So it’s official, dates are set and I am hustling in the craft room getting ready for all of you!!!! We have some awesome ideas and they are now coming to life!! Lucky Girl will be in stock by then and you can come get you some. Because the show is early you can even make something up. Yes check the dates, in early November this year, so you will have the gifts you need to celebrate the season. Here are a few of the things we have been preparing. Pricing is all under $40.00 each for items listed below.
I’ve neglected my blog and the work is piling up!! Please forgive me. I devote so much time to sewing these days and I really need to get on the stick? ..off the stick? and why a stick? Anywho I miss you all and I’ve wanted to share with you the greatest project I did this summer …I mean we. Katies boyfriend Berto painted the dresser below with Annie Sloans Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint, forget the paint, that name sends me to the moon!!! I knew I had to have it and yes pricey for a pint but I still have a 1/2 a can left!!! This woman is brilliant, her colors are fabulous and the videos and tips on various sites and youtube make the whole thing go quite quickly. I want to paint everything this color just so I can say Napoleonic Blue..feels so noble..Royal!! So take a look and tell her I sent you. Not that she’ll care or even know who I am….So inhale this beautiful dresser if you like.. The knobs are from Anthropologie but a little to transparant..not showing up..so I painted the back white so no light could shine through and now they pop!!! So I promise from here on forward not to neglect my Blog duties but please say you’ll keep coming..xoxoxo Oh and sweet boy George was such a big help!
PS this has nothing to do with chalkboard paint..
The bus went by today and it’s always a trigger for longing..It went by so fast and yet I am so grateful to be present for all of it. There is so much that can take us out of the day to day , we see it all the time. I ‘m just so glad to have felt all the good the bad and the ugly. There is something so precious about being present and available to our kids. I love mine to bits and I do miss the wonder that they experience in front of you every day..It’s exquisite. So when I saw this beautiful quilt on the beach that Jane from Maiden Jane made it made me miss their youth even more. She created something so beautiful that will be packed with memories over the years! Have you met Jane be sure to follow her she is delightful. Crazy Love is no longer being produced but lots of places carry them. Here’s one place I found. Quilt Home has a ton!!
Hawthorne Threads ordered more Circa for those collectors (hoarders) out there! They have cut you fat quarters and charm packs and all that good stuff. So please take what you need to complete your Sis Boom Treasury!! We are so excited this line filled you with inspiration! We love all the ideas and are amazed at the talent out there!! This may be the end of it so grab up when you can!! The sellers shelves are making way for Lucky Girl!!!
