I’ve been a bit off my game this week. I was just sure that I would be posting almost every day and here it is Thursday.
Worry takes a toll on you though. Heather is having ANOTHER hernia surgery tomorrow morning. This is the third hernia surgery and the EIGTH abdominal surgery that she has had. She WISHES that she could say that one of them was at least something like a tummy tuck! Not so. This surgeon said that this hernia surgery will be the LAST one. That’s what she was told last time! This hernia came up between the upper and lower mesh from the other surgeries. Poor thing! She was hoping that she could wait until after the wedding but it just wasn’t to be. At least she’ll get it out of the way and then on with the fun stuff!
So……I’ll give you one giant loooong post today because I’m sure that I will be out of pocket for several days.
Speaking of the wedding……..
We have been looking for inexpensive but cute little gifts for the wedding guests. Heather found these at Target in the dollar bin!
These cute bags of garden seeds in burlap-like bags!
I was surprised at how many seeds were folded up inside of that little bag!
So…I’m going to remove the little tag and tuck it inside so that everyone knows what their seed packets are and then……
Finish them off like this……
There’s that scrim again! I am beyond thrilled with these! They go with our theme, they’re cute, and they were inexpensive!
Don’t bother looking for any of these in the dollar bins around OKC, I think Heather bought all they had at every store! Don’t you know those clerks had to be wondering what was going on when she was checking out! :)
I am bound and determined to teach myself to slipcover. That being said…..I attempted my first chair this week! What a learning experience. I didn’t take a pic., I was too embarrassed. Who wants such a poor sewing job displayed in blogland forever! I learned a lot though, and am ready for my next project. I will NOT give up! It’s hard though! (insert whine here)
I have completed a couple of easy projects.
i finished the slipcover on my bedroom ottoman. Now I wish I had shortened the skirt so the legs would show. There’s always next time though.
And then there’s my closet……
First, let me tell you about my closet. I did a major, major clean out about two years ago, and it’s been one of the best things I have ever done for myself. (Hubby has his own closet.) I have really stuck with my rule that if something goes in then something else has to come out. And I’m mostly jeans and tees anyway, so I’m not a big clothes hog like I used to be. Anywho…….I have had tons of fun decorating my little closet.
Here’s the ottoman that I slip covered. That black and white material used to be the valance in the kitchen!
While I was there I took a few more crazy pics. for you.
Storage boxes. Sooooo much better than all of that clutter sitting everywhere. I hung the gold 80’s shoes over one of them just for fun!
Love this thing for small bags and such.
Too much? Nah!
More cuteness. Huumm, I need to paint that little jewelry box.
Organized my costume jewelry.
I found this cute chandelier which hubby hung for me to replace the ugly bare bulb that was in the closet.
And……okay, I admit this is over the top. But I didn’t have any other place to put these sheers, and I really really loved them.
That’s looking at the door from the inside of the closet. All of my scarves hang on a little over-the-door rack on the inside of the door.
So this is my bright and colorful little closet. Or the “inner sanctum” as T-man and Hubby call it!
Enjoy the eye candy and have a nice weekend. No news is good news from me!
