I used Tracy Porter’s Poetic Wonderlust bedding in my camper & I bought enough to make a cover for my cot. I thought it would be perfect for a lounge outside of my camper. I love this fabric!
You know, she’s the gal that likes to refurbish chairs! I was looking at a chair today and I started thinking about all the chairs I have reapolstered & upcycled over the past 5 years. There are too many to count, but here are past post pictures from my blog. I have sold most of these chairs at vintage shows. I love to do chairs because each one has its own personality! Do you have a favorite?
I decorated a little area in the guest bedroom with vintage baby items that are from our family. One christening outfit was my husband’s & the other was my son’s. My mom wasn’t a keeper of our childhood mementos, but my grandma was, so I have a few of my mom’s baby keepsakes. Did you keep your precious keepsakes?
A Change of Space
This last year I switched my art room with my son’s old bedroom. I cleaned out the closet & put all my extra clothes, shoes, etc. in it. I wanted it to be a functional space with a little edge to it. I kept some of my son’s drawings from high school and included them in both the closet & guest room.
I then painted one wall in the bedroom a very dark gray. I hung a round mirror & a drawing on the dark wall. I put linen bedding and a bunch of pretty random pillows on the bed. I wanted it super comfortable. I put the t.v. on an easel from my art room, and added a comfy chair. It was an easy change and a gallon of paint!
Superhero Baby Shower!
I’m going to be a grandma! I can’t tell you how excited I am! Baby Jacob should be arriving at the end of July. The baby shower was a few weeks ago and it was so much fun to be able to decorate the venue. I also volunteered to get the cake & deserts thinking all you had to do was call someone who specializes in this. Little did I know you have to order things months in advance. I ended up making the cake, cookies and cupcakes myself. It was a tiny bit stressful because I have never used fondant or decorated pretty cookies before. This is how it all turned out!
This is a baby quilt that I started a long time ago and finally finished! I had it all ready to quilt but didn't like the fabric on the back, and I tried to quilt it with the sewing machine. Big mistake! I took it apart, found fabric that I liked for the back and hand quilted it. I made the binding with a petty pink material, and had enough fabric left for a gift bag.
I'm an art teacher and junk lover! I like to hunt for and repurpose treasures from flea markets, old barns, yard sales and funky shops.
