I've been playing with a new project using this stuff....

care to guess what I'm doing with it?

fun new linky party!

One of the coolest blogs I follow is trying out a new linky party! Remodelaholic is allowing those of us with Etsy shops to post a link to our shops for free! This is REALLY helpful to gain more exposure and free publicity! Plus, it's a great way to find other shops that you may not have known existed. So if you have a shop, get on over there and list it! Grab one of these cute buttons too!

the French Psalm pillow...

is now added to my shop and I've already sold one and shipped it off to it's new home today! I can do a different verse or saying. I love how the words look old, like an old French feedsack cloth that's been around forever.

peonie love

My first few blooms of the season....

needed a special place to go. So here's a little project I did today and I wish I'd taken a before. I got this adorable bucket at the thrift store a long time ago for like $2 on half-price day. It was a gross, ugly black but I knew I could give it some love and find somewhere to put it. I primed it well with metal primer and tried out the cheaper spray paint they sell at Wal-mart. It's a minty-greeney-blue color and for this project it worked great! After the paint dried I antiqued it and sanded it in a few small spots.

I tore a little strip of muslin to fray the edges and stamped it with a writing/script stamp all along in it then a little birdie stamp at the end and tied it on for a cute touch.

to put the peonies in I stuck in a ziploc bag which sprung a leak, I'm assuming from the rocks I put in the bucket to keep it from blowing around so much in this Oklahoma wind. Plan B was an old plastic gas station cup that I squished in but it showed through the cut-outs so then I put a small square of burlap along the inside to keep it from showing. Sounds kind of like "If you give a mouse a cookie...."!

The plus side of the wind combined with the oh-so-lovely smell of my peonies, means that every time I walk through my front door, I get a little whiff of heaven.
