Things around here are never boring for me. There is always something to do, create and laugh about. First, I will start off with how my sweetheart tried to be of some help by refilling our soap dispenser. Wasn't he sweet in doing that?
When I seen that it had been refilled, I couldn't for the life of me figure out why the soap was so blue. I asked what soap he had used and his response was the soap in the cabinet. My nose has been stuffy, but today, I smelled ammonia. That's when I knew what he had done, lol!
No wonder my hands were getting so dry! I have laughed all evening!
Now for the sewing part....
I had been wanting to make curtains for under the bench. So I used some Bella Rose blue fabric I had left over and made some. I really like it!
I also made a curtain for the mantle insert. Sorry I don't have a better photo of the whole curtain. I'll get one later.
When I start sewing, I don't want to stop. So I decided to make some new shades for downstairs, then I ended up making one for upstairs too.
Here are the ones I made for downstairs and painted a lamp. The shade on the blue ball lamp wasn't made by me, I bought it that way from ebay.
I had some vintage shades that were dry rotted. They have the prettiest lines!
I used some of the candy pink Shabby Chic fabric for the shade. It definitely added some sweetness to this corner!
I love the British Rose fabric on these shades! I have so many and they all look lovely against the blue walls.
I had a mess to clean up , but I ended up doing some crafting instead.
I bought this white felt heart at Michaels. All they had were red and white so I decided to use some Rit Dye I had to make it pink.
After allowing it to dry over night, it turned out perfectly!
I found this gorgeous Peony at Pier One during Christmas. Then I found the mercury glass vase and the wooden heart at Michaels. The heart got a makeover with some white and pink paint.
It looks so cute in the cloche' I made from a light fixture. I am just having so much fun with Valentine's Day this year!
And I've been baking and cooking but you'll just have to imagine all of that since we ate it all!
I found these red hearts at Michaels and decided to make my own wreath from a pine Christmas wreath that I shaped into a heart. Everything is so drab outside, having the pine and the red makes it feel so inviting when you enter onto the porch.
I added them everywhere, even on the garland hanging from the roof. But I couldn't get any good photos of them, so you'll have to imagine that too.
The red Valentine Heart pillow is one that I made in clothing class in middle school. I loved sewing then and still do today!
The pine trees I made were perfect for those red hearts!
They just look so stinkin' cute!
Have you had any fun,like I have,with decorating for Valentines Day? I hope so!
Now I'm ready for some Valentines candy, how about you?
