4th of July wreath

This Coffee filter wreath was so easy and so cheap. I bought the white and crate colored coffee filters.  I then tea dyed the white ones so they looked alittle  more antiqued. I think using the 2 different colored filters gave the wreath alittle more dimension.

Pretty with Plywood

There were a few decorations around my home that needed to be just a little bigger to fill space. So we added a piece of plywood to make them bigger. An easy cheap fix. You could also use MDF wood, and it would be even lighter.

This cute frame of Bgirl is just a cheap frame from DI then nail gunned to a large piece of plywood. We then painted the entire thing pink to match her room. It's hard to tell from the picture but this is about 22''x28''
 Jane had this awesome piece of metal she found. So she attached it to some plywood with upholstery nails. It is about 20''x60''

I bought this cool 3-piece canvas art at Target a few years ago on clearance. I added a piece of plywood to the back and painted it red. I love it. It is about 48''x48''

pretty peonies

Ahh. I love peonies. They are so ruffle-y and girly. I went to Janes and picked a few out of her garden. I love having them on my kitchen table. They make me happy. I just wrapped my vase with some burlap, ribbon, and jute. My husband loves when I get myself flowers!

4th of July burlap banner

 I've been wanting to make a little banner for my cute swing. Today was flag day so I decided to do a quick banner out of some burlap I had. Now I just need to make some cute 4th of July pillows to match. It's on my to-do list, if only there were more hours in the day!

I figured I needed about 9 rectangles to fit across my swing.
I cut them all 7''x10''

Next I folded it in half length wise so I could cut a triangle out of the bottom. 
fold the top over your rope, jute or string about an inch. Either sew down or use the trusty glue gun.
I'm sure you could iron on some cute letters. But,  I wanted mine done NOW so i just painted letters with acrylic paint.

Tea Party

Grandma (jane) threw the most fantastic frilly tea party for all her granddaughters. She made them all these beautiful dresses.
 She mailed them all a fancy invitation.

 The table was gorgeous with china, and crystal. She gave all the girls some cute white gloves. They all felt so fancy. They loved drinking their pink lemonade with their pinkies in the air.

 All the details for the party were GORGEOUS! What spoiled girls. We all loved every minute of it!! Thanks G-ma.

Field Day

We have this ugly little field by our house. Every time I drive by it I want to stop and go expoloring with the kids. I loved playing in the field when I was little.  So today I stopped and we ran through the ugly field. It was so much fun.
I made Brighty this cute lil Washington Husky as my husband calls it dress. I made it out of
Ruffle Fabric. I guess I'm a little obsessed (:


B and I took a little photo stroll downtown P .  There were quite a few "crazies" and I think we might have been two of them.
