Bunting in the round

August 6, 2012 § 1 Comment

I added color to the teepee over the weekend. These pole caps make me happy!

This was a trial error sewing project. I started with a bunting template, made it larger and sewed a sample. Adjusted and fitted until I like the look. I used fabrics I had.

A tip-top topper!

Sucker for ties

April 4, 2012 § 3 Comments

The fat, textured, bright, delicious ties of several decades ago. I just can’t say no to them. They are jammy and these 5 are the latest in the collection. I’ve collected them for years and have lined my staircase with them.

Happy up-the-stairs:

Life-sized frame

March 29, 2012 § 2 Comments

I showed you this frame earlier this week. Over four feet of solidly joined hardwood. I cleaned it and spray painted it blue. I think I’ve finally gotten the hang of spray painting properly.

And since I smashed one of my favorite possessions this week, a bust of David who was my traditional mantle dweller, the frame sits well up there. There is a gaping hole with wires on our mantle, where a flat screen TV can be mounted, and as we rent it stays a hole. The ceilings are two stories up so we need a little bit of a large scale. When we moved in I covered a 3’x5′ piece of insulating board with fabric to be the hole cover and a colorful focal point. I just added the frame this week.

AND the frame is already in use as a photo prop. It is big enough for multiple kids, multiple objects, a whole family! How neat is that?

Oh those siblings.

I’m not actually sure they what they are; 40in lengths of vibrantly colored cloth, hemmed all around. Floppy rayon. I chose them mostly for their color and pattern and in a household with children you can never have enough pieces like this. They are hats and capes and dresses and baby blankets and forts.

Thrifted for $1, a great pair of suspenders. There is just something of old-world charm about them. And my husband likes to wear them.

Thrifted for 2$. Enjoyment for years.

I think they are destined for more bracelets. Lovely tarnished texture.

Where Am I?
