Found some wood turnings in my stash and just painted them in a vintage way. They're odd, but I think they sorta work on the mantle.
This old mat was here when we moved in years ago, but recently we had the garage painted and added new storage. This mat was set to go in the trash but since it would be in a landfill forever, I wanted to try to reuse it. It was sure ugly! I hosed it off… Continue reading Painting an old Welcome mat
More than a shed - it's my sanctuary. Also a place where old imperfect items come for second chances. A Facebook marketplace find for only $8... Scrubbed, sanded, painted... I'm still to coming up with an idea to cover the power panel. That's coming soon. 🙂
We're expecting a new person on our family in March 2019! A granddaughter and we're quite excited though they don't live nearby. We're going to have to make good use of video calls and social media to stay in touch. We can do it! My son is a huge fan of Pikachu so I sent… Continue reading A Little Kindness Monster
A new teapot cozy for the teapot I recently purchased. This one is made of 2 granny squares to fit each side, then seamed in anyway I could come up with to keep the 2 pieces together.

She was a pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits and I am sure I'll be making her some cousins. This project was part… Continue reading Myrna Mouse Goes to Dublin
For co-workers, neighbors and friends. A little something more than a card. Hope you're having fun getting ready for Christmas, too. 🙂
I always look forward to Camp Loopy, but this year, between school and side projects, making gifts and so many family commitments - I just need to sit this one out. Hard to do. I keep looking at the posts, putting things in my shopping cart, but then hitting the (X) and going to bed.… Continue reading Camp Loopy 2014
Decided to try to de-stash some leftover cotton and make some dishcloths for friends and upcoming gifts I'm going to need. The knit ones are from the Double Bump Dishcloth pattern and the square ones are a vintage pattern from my mother.
