Did you all have a nice week-end? We had two glorious days of unseasonably warm weather. Saturday reached 70 degrees and Sunday was in the mid-sixties. Quite nice for November in Wisconsin. I spent the week-end fluffing the guest room and doing a few crafty/sewing projects. The pic above is my attempt to create a viginette. The little antique chest is one I've had forever and wanted to use in the guest room. See my new wire cloche? I'm doing a little practicing for Marty's upcoming cloche party. The lemonade sign was in a local thrift shop for $7.00.
I found these cute little wall placques for only $5 at a fabric store. I think they add a frenchy touch!
The wall placques sit above this little wicker chair. It was a $10 garage sale find. I made a pillow and added a clearance cushion I found from Bed. Bath and Beyond.
I didn't care for the way the window treatment looked in the guest room so I took this old shelf, painted it an off white and...
mounted it above the window. A decoupage plate and two for one dollar figurine's from the Dollar Tree complete the look! The plate is attached to a plate hanger so it won't fall .
I used some red balled fringe I had left over from a sewing project to tie back the curtain panels. I like them open much better and next I need to find something to replace the ugly blinds.
A little black table purchased at IKEA for only $20.00 and the lamp also from IKEA but purchased several years ago. The little boy and girl in the pic are your's truly and my brother Tom. Our guest room is still a work in progress but I think it's coming along.
And finally my itty bitty sewing project. I made this table runner and napkins to use for an upcoming Tablescape Thursday. Easy Peasey and only $5 for the material.
I am joining Met. Monday please visit our hostess Susan for some wonderful transformations. Thanks for stopping by, I so appreciate all your lovely comments and I will be visiting you just as fast as I can. Cindy
