Reading blogs this morning when I realized the sun was shining in on my living room make-over. I tried to get shots of it yesterday, but it was raining, and the flash kept washing out the pictures so they didn’t do justice to all the fussing I’d done. But the warm bath of sunshine called me to grab my camera and try again. This is a bit more like it!
I found these delightful little dogwood pillows at a thrift store last fall, and couldn’t resist! Sweetest little things were under $3 and are backed with a baby pink quilted fabric.
Happy blooms from my friend Terri! Friends who spread cheer with flowers. Love ! And another thrift find: the blue vintage metal tray. Drum roll please: 99 cents. (Or was it 69 cents?…I can’t remember)
Cheerful mug my honey brought me from Germany 🙂
Found the vintage ticking pillowcase on Etsy for six bucks. And the lighter one I found at a thrift store for under a dollar. But it was one long piece in a six-inch wide strip. So I sewed it together to add to my collection of vintage ticking pillow covers! More love!
Happy Spring! Fresh and new all over!
A little more color to celebrate a sunny day, melting snow, and the promise of spring…
I started this with blue flannel and red sweatshirt fabric. I was moving happily along when I ran out of the blue flannel! I had other flannels, but didn’t want the edges to look out of place, so I cut up a bunch of old jeans and finished up the quilt that way. I used white cotton for the hand tying, but I’m not sure I like it. I may have to learn to machine quilt. What do you think? Does the hand tied look take away or add to in this case?
Next up: flannel, red sweatshirt, and denim! With a gray sweatshirt backing. Love January!
