Here are monster portraits embroidered into wall art for my friend’s nursery. Three monsters, Ma, Da and baby me.
The friend I was knitting for agreed that Rebecca Danger’s monster swings were really cute, so I made 3 for the baby’s room.
Do you remember when I found these place mats? Four of them make a great tote bag, and use belts for the handles and you have an upcycled bag made of 99% reused materials. Save the belt findings to make great bag closures.
Total cost for the two bags: $4.30
Today is my beloved’s birthday. He loves brownies so this year I made a round white cake (2 layers) and then made brownies in a round cake pan. I put a thin layer of frosting between the layers and the brownie became the middle layer. I did not frost the sides, because I wanted to go light on the frosting. It was not an even cake, but it is tasty!
Do you remember this fabric? It was a table cloth that I got for .90 at a thrift store. Now they are two mors shopping bags. http://www.morsbags.com/
This chest of drawers is one of my all time fav thrift store find. It has dove tail drawers, real wood back, solid construction, cherry stain and dust shelves. For $83.00 and only a three block trip on the top of the car it was a steal.
I took these pictures when it was the first signs of spring. And even though it has only been a couple of weeks spring is here in full force. Still these are beautiful.
