Keepin You Happy

Hi Bloggerettes!

I figure the best way to keep all of you happy is to show you something new!  So I scrounged around and found a few things that you just might like.  I know how we bloggers get easily bored. But we will have none of that here at Sissie's Shabby Cottage, oh no no!  So here goes....

I bought two painter dropcloths in an off white color.  They were 9ft. long and just perfect for panels in the family room.  The windows in here are so tall and I just needed some fabric to soften the edges.  I think I like them.  Only cost $18. for two.

I love finding silver candlelabras and making them pretty.
This one is going to my booth.

Along with this sweet pillow made from an old piece of linen and a sweet vintage handkerchief.

Pillow and candlelabra equals perfect combination...

I say we need more burlap and ruffles in our lives, yes?

Get a load of these ruffles.....oh la la!
My pink ruffles runneth over....
A thrift shop skirt that will be used for a pillow or something.
I just couldn't resist.

So after looking at all these new things at Sissie's Shabby Cottage, I hope you are feeling inspired and ready to carry on!

I'm off to go blog hopping.  I can't wait to see whatcha got new!

Aren't we just the luckiest bunch ever!!!!!

~~extra big hugs~~

Hi Miss Sissie -
One can never stop by your beautiful blog and not be inspired! I love drop cloths and actually took one, split it down the middle and made a couple of curtains for my living room :) I think I might make a few more for a couple of windows in my laundry room. Did you make the pillow on your sofa? Love it and the two new pillows you made.

Hi Sisie! It's amazing how a little paint and some ruffles can turning something from ho hum to absolutely fabulous! Those drop cloth panels are great. Most of our windows are west facing so don't get a lot of natural light; plus they are tinted to ward off the summer heat. Wishing you a most wonderful day. Tammy

Tarnished and Tattered said...

I love it! I'm getting ready to do the same thing with my living room windows. I did the drop cloth curtains for the little sitting room I did on our porch & I love them. How did you get that beautiful creamy color on yours? Did you bleach them or anything? The ones I buy (from Lowes) have a grayish tone to them.
As always it's all wonderful girl!

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

NIFTY THRIFTY drapes! Now that thrifty skirt is just too pretty to cut up...great color!

I think if you applied yourself and worked very very hard at it you would still be "boring challenged". :)
