Third Braided Rug

It feels really good to take some fabric yardages that no one wants or wool clothing and turn it all into a lovely usuable and beautiful creation.

Updated Vintage Shelf

Betty Gram let me buy this little vintagey-arts and crafts movement shelf from her for $6.00 last fall. Now, after some little nails to re-inforce it, sanding, caulking, wood putty filler, sanding, priming, more sanding, 1st coat of cream and lastly the 2nd coat - it looks grand! I am pleased with the rich buttery creamy color. A little darker than I had anticipated, but none the less charming.

A Cheerful Bouquet

"Bouquet Two" comes from my dear friend, Peggy. She is our organist at church and a dear soul. I received this fresh bouquet whilst in the hospital this week. What vivid pinks and greens. The bountiful spring selection is filled with carnations, large snap dragons, daisies and fern. Thank you!

Quiet Time

Lovely tulips in an old glass milk jar have made a lovely 'get well' greeting every morning this week. Thanks to my mum and sis.
