Hung With Care

on
This was what I faced December 23rd. For weeks I had this extra large sweater and fabric pieces sitting in my kitchen waiting to be transformed into four christmas stockings. So with only hours to spare, I finally got my scissors out and went to town! Here are the results. I intentionally chose a sweater […] [Read More]

Recycle That! Baby Food Jars, Part Deux

on
Remember a few months ago I wrote about wanting to make use of the many baby food jars I was accumulating? I FINALLY finished them.

Its light beech-finish bowed legs and curved seat bring it a modern, almost Swedish feel, while the quilted ivory top grain leather lends an […] [Read More]

Another Breakthrough

on
By Amy Dolego Today is Black Friday and for me, it has little to do with shopping.  Instead, it means we only have 3 weeks to get our house in order before my sister arrives from California to stay with us for the holidays.  I’m feeling the pressure… We’ve fallen somewhat behind because Dennis wasn’t […] [Read More]
