Good Evening my friends!
Well another weekend is over. So back to the real world of work tomorrow.
Saturday after noon I spent in my craft room as hubby was working on his computer all weekend.
I did some sewing, altered some bottles, did a little yard saling and found time to cut roses from the garden. Not bad for a weekend eh?
Hope you enjoy viewing all the pictures of my life this weekend. Have a great week!
Roses from our Garden.
I used up what was left of my polka dot fabric. If you remember I made some pillows for my black bench with this same fabric.
My favorite of these two table runners is the one with the black lace trim.
I did not have enough black pom pom trim for the second table runner. I had to settle for the white.
Altered Bottles and Tags
Of the three bottles I altered this weekend, this one is my favorite. I plan to use this in our master bathroom. The decoration on this bottle are from wild orchid crafts, my bead stash, the dollar tree, and some of my stash I already had on hand.
I love the delicate and feminine look of the cream.
The cream rose trim and the dark caramel colored rose is a wild orchid craft purchase. The creamy white rose it from the dollar tree floral, I purchased about a month ago. The other decorations are from my stash.
This bottle I used some free standing lace I made with my embroidery machine. I had made this lace a long time ago, so I put it to use,
This purple bottle is altered with drawer liners. I used beads on the cork stopper. I added some trim and flowers.
I made the tag virtually out of the same materials. I used the card board from some seam binding to make the tag.
This card is made from packaging card board. As most of you know I recycle anything I can vs throwing it in the trash. I just used some scrap booking paper and scrap booking flowers to decorate the card board. Around the edges I glued some fiber I bought for a dollar at Big Lots. I have yards of this fiber left for many more projects.
Yard Sale Finds!
I love ornamental boxes. I thought about painting this one with my beloved Oil
Rubbed Bronze. However I decided to leave its original color. I sat it on our fireplace mantle.
I have an obsession with pink glass ware. This piece is by Lenox. I paid 50 cents for it at a yard sale. The lady I bought this from had mostly baby clothes. The only two house ware items she had was this bowl and that green basket with the buttons, I posted below.
The lady I bought this from, stated it was from blown glass artist in Virgina. I wish I had paid more attention to what she said, I can not remember the artist name.
I love cobalt blue glassware. It does not go so well with the colors in my house. But I collect it anyway..........just cause.
This little clear candle holder was 50 cents. It has a etched flower in the bottom of the glass. I just thought it was an interesting piece. I love clear glass, and generally collect all that I find.
I just liked this bottle. It was 50 cents.
This basket and the buttons were 50 cents. I buy buttons anytime I can at yard sales. I bring them home and soak them in antibacterial dish washing soap to sanitize them before I use them.
I always buy baskets as well, I use them in my craft room and various other places in the house. I store odds and ends in the baskets.
