Our Tiny Visitors

We've had so much rain lately - there isn't much to do outside except watch our little friends! They are so fascinating.

No Before - Just an After

I wish I had taken a picture of this cute little side table before I painted it-but I didn't. It took me an entire month to paint it cuz I couldn't make up my mind on the color. I went back and forth between soft green and red but in the end I chickened out and painted it practical white. This was another bargain only $40.00 at my favorite little shop "Just a Bed of Roses".

The Little Princess!

You know how you love doing something (like sewing) and you wish the love would pass onto your daughter? Well, my daughter made this darling skirt for the 4 year old and is making 2 more for her older sisters! I told Kate that she should be flattered because as she was making this, Mariah wouldn't stop checking in to see when it would be done. So cute!

Em and I decided it was time for her first sewing lesson. She made this cute tote bag all by herself (with a little help from Gramma). Cute bag, Cute Girl

Before and After

I got 2 old chairs a while back at my old job when someone decided to throw them away. One is in my sewing room and this one is in the office. I covered the sewing room one a few months back when the room got a makeover.
But this one was just waiting patiently. (you might note that this black fabric works as a perfect magnet for white cat hair)
