Give-A -Way Christmas Pillow Cover

I've seen these farmhouse designer pillows
in the catalogs . . .
well, all of you that know me,
know that if I can make it instead of spending
hard earned money, I will :)

Pillow ticking in navy blue.

Heavy duty painters drop cloth

Stencils . . .
I have certainly got my moneys worth
from this stencil.
I've used it many times:)
Plain black craft paint.

After painting these,
I hung them up to dry before
sewing them into pillow covers.

Here they are finished.

I made these two for me.

 And I made this one for you . . .

or at least whoever gets their name pulled
out of the hat.

  To win it all you need to do is:

#1. Follow my blog.
(just click follow in the right column)

#2.  Leave a comment on this post.

~~~ That's It . . . Pretty Simple ~~~

I'll pick a name and post it on
Saturday, November 25th.
Then I can get it in the mail
in time for your Christmas decorating:)

Keep Smiling! 

Your blogging sister,
Connie :) 
P.S. I have company coming this weekend
and for the whole week,
so I probably won't be doing much blogging 
until after Thanksgiving:)
Enjoy your holiday!

Denim Skirt To Yoga Bag - Re-Purposed

I love re-purposing denim.

 And our daughter loves yoga . . .
so making her a bag for her mat
seemed like a great idea for 
her birthday.

It started out as a button down 
the front dress. 

I took one pocket from a skirt . . .
this one is for car keys.

 Then took the zipper from a pair of jeans
and made a smaller zipper pocket
for driver's license and debit card. 

 A round bottom.

A draw string top.

And an adjustable shoulder strap.

 I hope . . .

She . . .

 Likes it.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!
You are an amazing woman,and we are 
so proud to call you Daughter :)

Keep Smiling!

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

First Snow Of The Season

Saturday Mess . . .

No not the snow, but the septic tank :( 
Have you ever had to call a plumber on a Saturday. 
Fair warning, they double their price,
but what are you going to do, right?

There was a blockage between the house 
and the septic.
We couldn't flush, shower, do dishes 
or even wash clothes. 
Anyway, I ran to town while Steve waited for the plumber.
When I returned he was just arriving.
I unloaded the car and for the first time 
in ages, forgot to park it in the garage.

So, of course it snowed, LOL

This was the view out the bedroom window
Sunday morning :)
Isn't it funny, we don't notice the screen,
but the camera sure does, LOL.

 Our first snow of the season.
It's pretty, but it's cold :)

Keep Smiling!
