Make some pillows or create something wonderful.....

What to do when the weather is lousy or your feeling bored or down....why make pillows of course!

One with a French chair image from the Graphic's Fairy and a rosette with vintage jewelry...
 This beautiful pink toile chair isn't this pillow's permanent home but I love this chair and want to show it off!
 Speaking of toile this pillow is so sweet and romantic...
 My Sista created this pretty mirror by covering it with a collection of vintage jewelry.....swoon!!!  It's now in my possession!
 While perusing the thrift stores I found this pretty silver base for a cloche I already had in my stash.  I believe it's a cake platter.  it's perfect for my crystal door knob collection.
Okay, that's it for now.  So if you are feeling bored or restless why not create, sew, paint, write, photograph, repurpose or prowl the thrifts, fleas and antiques for something wonderful.  And most important of all be sure and share it with us.
