I've been gone for 3 weeks, and boy do I feel like a bad blogger. Kids are keeping me busy...cramping my junkin style if you know what I mean. LOL All kidding aside about the kiddos...I had company at my house for about a week. Then this week I came down with a stomache flu bug and I am just getting better today. I set about cleaning my house because it seems like no one else in this house can. I'm pretty beat already and I have much, much more to get done.
I wanted to show you the flowers that I got from my husband. On Tuesday it was our 14th year wedding anniversary. He had gotten me a dozen pink roses, but our cat managed to kill a bunch of them. I salvaged what I could and did a little display with them.
I also bought this chippy little guy a couple weekends ago. He was outside and only $7.50. I just about died. I think he use to be part of a fountain because he has a hole in his mouth. Love him. I also got this vintage wallpaper box that same weekend. I love wallpaper boxes and have about 4 or 5 of them.
I also made another apron this past week. You'll never believe what it is made of. I used a new Martha Stewart valance (thrift store find), and cut it to size for this apron. I cut a runner for the pocket. On the sides of the pockets are little white yo yo's with pink buttons in the middle. I used a vintage ribbon for the tie. I love the way it turned out and can't wait to wear it when I do a show. It's almost too pretty to wear.
I'm hoping that you all are enjoying your summer. Take care until next time!
