Decorating With Yard Sale Finds

Friday morning I went to a yard sale 
and found this for $10.

After painting . . .

And stenciling . . .

I had this new piece for the Art Barn.

Next I added some contact paper from Duct Tape
to the back and the top shelf.

It provides more storage and will be a nice place
to set a cup of coffee and my pin cushion
 this winter,
while I sit here and do hand stitching. 

I love decorating my creative space
with yard sale finds. 

I don't worry about color,
the more the merrier in this happy space:)

Have A Great Week
Keep Smiling!

A Happy Little Project

I wanted something cheerful
to set on my kitchen window sill . . .

Remember this . . .
well, this time I painted little jars.

 You can see here that they take more 
than one coat of paint.

 Three to be exact :)

These are all small
and set nicely in my kitchen window.

This is my view when I'm washing dishes . . .
too bad they are all done.

Oh well, after dinner all that will change, LOL. 

I'm  sharing this post with
and lovely party put on by 
three sweet blogging sisters
Jann, Carol & Jo

Sidetracked Sewing & The Mystery Board

It all started with this.
I have had this little half yard of fabric
in my stash for a couple of years now.

 I also had this embroidery pattern.
So while I went out with the intention of
  cleaning my Art Barn & quilting on the baby quilt. . .

I started sewing instead, LOL

 I'll just bet we have all gotten ourselves
sidetracked like this a few times :)

 After my morning sewing spree,
I had these three items made for the motor home. 


Pot Holder

& Dishtowel.

This wasn't my intention . . .
but I can always clean tomorrow, LOL.

Remember the Mystery Board from my last post . . .
 Here it is finished and ready to hang
in the new baby's room, 
but before I give them this 
I want to add the baby's height at birth.
Then it will truly be finished.

Have A Happy Weekend
Keep Smiling.
