This and That!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Not much new happening today....just a little of this and a little of that.

A corner in my bedroom where I sit and look through magazines.  I can also see out the french doors to the golf course from here....



 My sister sent me a photo of a cute snowman created using a bottle and some bits of this and that.  I loved it so much that I decided to try and make one.  So, here it is......

Just fill a clear glass bottle with bits of laces, ribbons, pearls, or whatever you happen to have on hand...

Her head was a $1.00 ornament that I took apart.  I added snow flakes for hair and made the hat by wrapping it with laces and pearls.  I think she's quite elegant looking and so easy to create.

Okay, that's it for now.  Get out there and make, create, sew, paint, photograph, write, share you heart and find something wonderful and show it to the rest of us!
