Table cloth weights

This is such a cute idea for those who like to eat outdoors. You could use almost anything small to weigh your table clothes down so they don't blow up or away. Lots of outdoor eating this year! Enjoy!

Trying something old but new to me. I molded this doll head with paper towels. I kind of like the way it turned out.

Honoring those who gave their lives for us to live in freedom. Bless you and those that are now serving!

Fancy cupcake wrappers

Once again I was surfing the net and came across some fancy cupcake wrappers. They weren't the laser ones but they were cute. I was thinking about ordering some for a bridal shower. Had a brain moment and thought I'd share with you.
I took a paper cupcake wrapper . Cut the bottom out of it. Cut it up one side. Layed it down on a piece of card stock and traced and cut it out. Instant pattern to trace onto whatever kind of paper design I needed. I made the top just a little taller and trimmed the top with the fancy scissors. Glued the sided together and just dropped a cupcake into it.

How much easier could it get? This would be great for any affair or just to say "You're special", 4th july,birthday,anniversary.........etc! Hope someone else can use this. If you try it please share with us! Have a great weekend!

"I can make that"

What on earth was I thinking????? My son is getting married in October. I was surfing the net last night and came across a beautiful wedding gater. It was only $30. I looked at it for several minutes and said, I can make that. Spent a good hour in Joanns looking for just the right lace,color ribbon,elastic,material glue and wedding charms. It only cost $25 for I nuts? (click on picture to get a closer look) My soon to be daughter in-law will so appericate it. Note to self: Don't ever think this again! I just hope it turns out as pretty as it is in my crazy mind! =o)

Market finds

Went to our local Amish market this morning and just had to share my finds with you.This beautiful Greman tin doll head was a thrill for me. I might have paid too much but she screamed to come home with me.

As in my earlier post you know I love "The Secret Garden". I found this copy printed in 1949. It has to be the earliest edition I now own.

Last are some flowers I picked up to plant if it ever stops rainning. My puppy is checking out my flowers. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
