Table for Two because of my goof-up!

Hi Beautiful Bloggerettes!  Whatcha-up-to!!!
I found four plain placemats at the thrift store and decided to give them a little somethin, somethin.  So,over to  Karen at the Graphic's Fairy I go.  And of course I find this lovely bird image. Ain't it purdy??
The first placemat that I attempted to apply the image is now history!  It went to that great placemat heaven in the sky!  The image stuck to it and when I pulled it off it turned into a mess! @#$*()!@#.  So now I have two placemats with the bird images....
table for two anyone?

Whipped up a few little sachet pillows and put them in the little
vintage wicker basket tray.
Sign on my bathroom outhouse door.  That's what I call it, because it's separate from the rest of the bathroom.  I think it's a southern "thang!"
My Roses are doing well this spring...


Now it's time to go blog hopping to see what you have been up to. 
I just know you got all kinds of good things just waitin
on me to absorb! Yeah!!

Our toilette is also separate from the rest of the bathroom :)

The sachet pillows are sweet!


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Well, I love the way that one turned out, Sissie! The colors are great and that's a great graphic. Our toile~et is right there in the thick of things! : ) I would say that's a northern thing, but newer homes here have them separate.

I think two is fine...oh, heck, I just love everything you sew. And I am eating up those tiny little pillows!


Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

I just can't get the hang of the transfer thing...they either stick or are barely visible! The little birds are adorable. You always make the most beautiful pillows and these little ones are no exception.


Hi Sissie!

Oohhh I hate when that happens....i've been there and done that too!....
table for two sounds romantic though...and that's never a bad thing! i love them!

Ooh, I really like your placemats... Did you use iron on transfer? I would really like to try this soon, my table needs a little gussy'n up!

Everything looks wonderful, just as it always does!

trash talk said... are so clever and talented. I think I'm jealous!
P.S. Of course it's a Southern thang...I'm assuming it's a one-holer, right? I never understood the double ones!

Hi Sissie....I am amazed at the mixed comments about the doggie fan....some just don't get it. I thought it was cute. I don't think he will surprise me with it. It really was quite pricey and I don't need it.
Sometimes the odd things are what I am drawn to?? Who can figure??

Sherry from Alabama said...

Beautiful post! Great idea for the placemats. I'm looking for an idea for new placemats for my small round breakfast room table. I don't want them to lap over each other, but the only shape I can think of to use is an upside down heart, but I don't think those would be too cute.

Sherry @ A Happy Valentine

Cindy said...

So, so pretty! I love it all and would sure like your bathroom sign. Thanks for the inspiration! Maybe a diet coke will give me some Oomph because I sure don't have much today!

Sylvia (at) Lily's Pad and Petals said...

As usual you never disappoint. Love it all.
Have a great weekend.

Jenny said...

That image for your placemats is gorgeous. Is it too big to put on napkins? It is really charming. And your roses are luscious!

LuLu Kellogg said...

I have not tried a transfer yet but would love to AND I want to learn how to sew since I have a brand new sewing machine and don't know how to use it!

I enjoyed all your Saturday pinkness Sissie! I'm so glad you didnt cut into that gorgeous dress! There's no changing your mind once you do! It would look darling on an old dress form or mannican (sp) and you could dress it up with hats and jewels . . . but it looks very special just where you have it displayed also!!
