Fluffing Up Around the House!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I  took a little break today from working in my booth, huntin for good stuff and antiquing.  This darn cold that I have just doesn't want to go away, so I did a little fluffing up around the house.

Ah, don't you just love a french wall basket filled with lovely flowers.  And notice the sun shining through my front door!!

Playin around with a pillow design idea, not there yet!

Wondering what to do with these baby slippers?????
Any ideas ????

Well, better go, time for "Cash Cab."  and some brain exercise!

Hi Sissie- Yes, I love a French wall basket and your pillow also catches my eye! I love the way your make your rosettes, little gathers and turns. Someday I am going to try to make luck will have to be with me to accomplish it, however. LOL
I hope the sunshine brings a miracle cure for your cold!

i love the bright freshness of the images...i think my cottage needs some freshing up...
ah, nothing like a blog post for inspiration.

Jane said...

Good Morning Sissie Sweetie...
I pray you are feeling better soon. I know colds can sure hang on and make our lives miserable.

I love the basket and flowers, so beautiful. You asked about the little shoes. I would put these shoes under one of your cloches. You could put a fleur-de-lis on a white linen type towel, set the shoes on the towel, and put the cloche over it. It would be beautiful. You could also make two seperate pinkeeps with these shoes. They are just so beautiful. Love them. Thank you for sharing.

Hope you are enjoying Cash Cab today, gosh I love that show too.

Country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry

Dear Sissy, I love the french wall basket of flowers and grasses. The pillow is sweet too, but those shoes? They are adorable. Maybe pincushions? Anyway I know you will think of something wonderful to do with them! Feel better!

Jeannette said...

Morning Sissie! I hope you are feeling better today; the colds seem to linger longer this season! At least your pretty french basket should cheer you; it does me - love it!!! This may have been suggested but I would take some black/white check ribbon; loop it through those two back loops and hang them from a doorknob or a french looking hook? Whatever you do with them they are adorable!! Feel Better - Sincerely, Jeannette

Rebecca said...
