Isn't this milk bottle candle cute? My friend gave it to me for Christmas. I love it. The blue straws with snowflakes on them came from the Dollar Tree before Christmas. I thought they were a great find.
Long ago, I saw on Pinterest how someone had painted textured wallpaper and cut it into heart shaped ornaments. I have been meaning to do something similar with a roll of the same wallpaper that I picked up at a yard sale a while back. I finally got her done! Instead of ornaments, though, I made a banner.
Just taped the back of them onto a long piece of fishing line with scotch tape like I did here.
Another thing I found downstairs was my old raspberry painting. I stuck it in another frame, and added it to a little Valentine vignette in the windowsill.
My sweet friend decided she wanted one of my birds nest drawings, so this week I was busy making one for her...
As well as a love sign...
In going through my fabric stash, I found this embroidery of Spanish dancers. I'm sure I picked them up from a yard sale. How do you get rid of something like that? Yet, what do you do with it? I wasn't sure that it was really my style, but when I took it upstairs and laid it on the couch, I realized that it might make a cute little pillow. What do you think? Maybe with a tiny contrasting red and white floral on back, or blue and white?
When I was re thinking what fabric to keep and what to get rid of, I ran across two sweet vintage white Swiss polka dot curtain panels. I just slipped them on a tension rod, and hung them in the middle of the window like I did with the linens on my front windows that I get compliments on all the time. (see four pictures down in this post) Anyway, they really soften and cozy up the kitchen.
I was honored to be asked to make a donation of my art to our local Hemophilia Foundation for part of their fundraising auction this spring, so I put together a little basket of spring goodies...
I hope they will find a good home!
