Keys to My Heart

I started with a heart form and burlap ribbon. I looped and threaded through the wire.

 When I was finished the heart looked like this.


I added three black felt keys.

 I added two white lace hearts.
Last I added a ribbon.
Now where to put it? I think I know where.

Just a Little Bunny

I found this cute little guy half priced at a resale shop. I took him home and cleaned him up. Next I added some flowers and now he is at home on my breakfast table.

Ready For Spring

I seemed to be liking birds, nests and cages these days. I think it may be spring fever.

Making Soap

I was given this soap dispenser from a friend. I have become interested in creating my own laundry soap and found some neat recipes on different blogs.

I took some burlap and ribbon and added just a little bling. It goes good with my kitchen which is black,white, and tan.
Now, I can enjoy my new dispenser in the kitchen each day. Next to make my own liquid soap.

 I found this sweet grouping of hearts at a local shop. I fell in love and knew that they would be  perfect for my kitchen door. They make me smile when I come in and see them.

Wooden with Lace

Well visiting an antique mall in Enid, Oklahoma I saw these bag of wooden thread spools. The last time I had seen some was at my Nanny's years ago. I thought I would add some lace and make them beautiful. I displayed them in a white bowl. Now, I can think of my Nanny everytime I see them.

Shopping in Oklahoma

My husband is working in Oklahoma and so with a long weekend ahead, I went to visit this weekend. I went to Hobby Lobby and went up-and-down evey isle. I don't think I have ever done this before. I bought all kinds of things for future craft project. You will be seeing some of them in the future.
This is my new wind chime. I love me some white and teapots.

 I have this thing for keys right now. I couldn't pass this up. I think I know his new home.
 I love this post card and the back is filled with the sweetest note to a girl's parents.

 Ribbons, Ribbons and lace

Valentine in the Air

Coffee anyone? My husband went to the store for me and brought back a heart with some chocolates. I knew that I had plans for the chocolate and the box.

 With a little glue  and emblishments, a new heart was born.

Make Do

I love to take something that you already have and make it work in your space. Here is a small project that I ended up really liking and will make more.

Had this but it was just plain.
 Added a scrap of burlap with hot glue.
I added some burlap ribbon and some lace.
 This is the shelf before my lovely new holder.
 Added buttons
 This looks so much better. I am going to make another for the other colorful books. I am trying to keep everything neutral.

A Little Light

I have been working on my studio/craft area. It is a sitting room that goes into my bedroom. I would love for it to be all white and off-white but all the shelves are cherry wood. This is a built- in that was made by a dear friend who is no longer with us. I added these lights to lighten up the area. It looks so cool at night.

 I am into birds and birdhouses. I have to have white though.
 Remembering good times.
