Joann fabrics had doorbusters and this jumbo yarn on sale 3 for $20. They're @1,000 yds each. Before you poo-poo this yarn, hear me out. It's perfect for something I needed - a small washable rug for winter. My feet have been cold on the bare floor when I sit at my table. Pulling from… Continue reading Crochet rug
Just a fun garland on a lazy Sunday. There are no patterns for the bitty clothing, but the undies were a kit from Susan B Anderson - Get it here.
Today was about a small update to the fireplace screen. It's just a shed and the fireplace is fake, but it's my happy space. Sanded the old one lightly, since it's mdf. Went with 2 coats of this paint, since it covers anything. This transfer is Midnight Garden by IOD. You line it up, rub… Continue reading IOD Transfer
Found some new pieces for this small space - a linen tower and a wall cabinet. They match and I'm quite happy with them. They aren't hard to put together, but I've heard nightmares about missing parts and things not fitting. I didn't have these issues. At night I do tend to leave the bright… Continue reading New furnishings
I received a broken fairy. I didn't expect her to be great, but as a Grammie, I really wanted her for my granddaughter's visit this summer. That's a pretty nasty break. A bit of e6000 should hold. At first I was looking to make a return, but the seller offered a refund for all but… Continue reading Fairies gather…

Today I changed sheets, made waffles, and freshened the hummingbird feeders (daily when it's warm). The middle of the day has been in the she shed, enjoying a cool breeze on a… Continue reading Roses for spring

I've also been watching a mama bird invade my new fern. *sigh* I'm… Continue reading Rest, a very Good Friday
It's been rainy, cold and gloomy for months! Opening the St. Patrick's day box has made me happy with it's cheerful greens. I'm putting out a few things in the freezing rain. “March comes in like a lion, out like a lamb” - looks to be true this year. A green doily Spring is next,… Continue reading Early Irish decor, but that’s ok. ☘
In an effort to hide my cleaning supplies, a curtain-closet was made. It wasn't working out though. A free (new in box) closet door was on Facebook marketplace and a crystal knob from Amazon years ago. Maybe she was giving away this door because it's very tall, taller than my entry door. It works for… Continue reading A broom closet
My favorite day of the week. The first day of the weekend when all things seem possible. First some rest, some tinkering, then along comes Sunday when I realize I didn't accomplish any of those things. But for now, it's still Saturday. Just a few photos to share. Shelves Cubbies Bric-a-brac Happy Saturday!
