DeCoraTinG and oTheR StuFF...

Hey there and happy Hump Day as they say!!! I was cleaning out my linen drawers in my hutch and I came across this card my good pal Mindee gave me a couple of years ago for Easter..I opened this up at church and laughed...on the inside it says..hope your Easter is all it is "cracked" up to be..;) thought you might get a chuckle too...
Monday when we were out shopping I stopped by Joanns and purchased this chair strapping to use on my dolls..I got two yards and used my 50% off coupon for a grand total of .87 is the only thing I purchased..I hope you were all sitting down for that one..don't want anyone getting a knock on the
our next door neighbors are moving and she gave me this simplicity book dated has lots of tips on sewing..I just might learn a thing or two..:)
yesterday as I was tweeking and going through drawers like I said..I walked back into the kitchen and saw Silly Millie had made herself comfortable in the drawer of my hutch..with her Sister Gracie looking on..
I was glad I had the camera in hand..I had to lift her out of it..she wasn't moving..:)
I got this cute little sign from Irish Corkie Primitives..
as well as this one "Be Thankful" it should be for fall..but I believe in being Thankful all year it stays.:)
This is how our living room has changed the big entertainment unit and the cat scratching post are gone..unit upstairs in the bedroom and the cat post upstairs in the garage for the outdoor kittys..
during.. and below is the after..we got a new cat scratching post as can hardly see it was such an eyesore..but a necessity if I want to keep my furniture in can see Tucker asleep on his bed..I love how much bigger the room is now... and love watching the tube on a bigger screen...well I have to go and tidy up the house..I am cleaning the next door neighbors for them...getting paid of course so it will help pay for the gathering foot and ruffle foot I got at the Viking department on monday...can't wait to try these out..hopefully no more breaking the thread or no more hand stitched gathering..will keep you posted..have a wonderful is turning out really pretty here..might just have to take the pup for a walk..:)
