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.

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 love this post card and the back is filled with the sweetest note to a girl's parents.

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.

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.

AfterIt was time to clean out my bookcase. I went through my books and sorted according to color. I tried to find a place to give those that I have read and didn't want to keep. I added white accents and doilies. I was inspired by a blog that I viewed called The Refeathered Roost . I love blogs!
I was feeling like adding a little spring to the front porch so I made this wreath. I took a twig wreath found at Goodwill for $2.00 and wrapped it with off-white burlap ribbon. I then lopped the ribbon and hot glued it all around the wreath. I made a burlap flower out of a scrap of burlap that I had. I added a couple of daisies on each side of the burlap flower. Last I added a white C for Cristy because I didn't have a W for Waire. My granddaughter thought it was not right to have a C because I am not the only person who lives here. LOL

Found this tassel at an after Christmas sell. It was a Christmas tree ornament. I love the rustic with the ribbons. It reminds me of my husband and I. He is real manly man and I like ribbons, lace and pretty. Thank goodness he lets me decorate our home anyway that I want.
