Something as simple as a lace punched edge gives these ordinary bags a "touch of elegance."

See how pretty this bag topper looks with the lacy edge?
Both the bags and the candy cane clothespin toppers are available in the shop.

Candy Cane Clothespins - Gift Kit

I hand-painted these candy cane clothespins and added some glitter for extra "pizazz."
 They come with little "chalkboard" tags embellished with faux stitching and punched hearts.
Four lace punched bags (in your color choice) are also a part of the ensemble.
Pretty way to dress up your gift giving this year!
Now available in our Etsy shop.

Doily Cards

The Challenge over at the Mod Squad Blog is what inspired me to make these mini notecards.
These little cards came together in just under 2 minutes. 
Each has a pearl center on the big doily, and...
...matching stamped envelopes.
These cards are available (in sets of 5) in our Etsy shop.

Hand Crocheted Doilies

Two hand-crocheted doilies that I made for the shop.
I love the unique design of this pattern.
Doilies add a touch of warmth to most any decorating style.

Bathroom Reveal

My finished bathroom -- redecorated from a patriotic theme to a primitive/country theme.
I used the colors in my bedroom so everything goes together now!
(The patriotic stuff wasn't wasted -- a friend is redoing her kitchen in that theme so she inherited a big bag of freebies from me!)
 Most things I either a)redid, b) moved from another place in my house, or c) made from scratch.
The only things I had to purchase were my shower curtain, some towels, and two throw rugs.
I used birthday money on those items, so nothing out of the budget for this makeover!
This item used to be a big, painted pledge of allegiance, but I turned it into a primitive embroidered piece. 
Hope you've enjoyed this mini tour of my bathroom makeover!

Bathroom Update

Here are some more DIY projects I did for my bathroom update.
Above: I tied a big gingham bow on this homemade jar candle.
A new picture decoupaged over the old one on my towel holder.
This big "A" came from Hobby Lobby and glued a piece of burlap paper onto the front.
Candle makeover: some burlap, fabric, and raffia wrapped around the candle and a salt dough heart to the front added.

Twig Wreath

I LOVED the idea and wanted to make one for my bathroom that I'm changing to match my bedroom better. 
After making the wreath, I added a primitive berry pick, a metal star, and finished it off with a burlap hanger!

Homespun Sheep Ornaments

A friend of mine saw the little sheep I had on the primitive tree in my bedroom and suggested I make some for the shop.
They're a lot of fun to make and add some "country charm" to your Christmas tree!
Three sets of 3 available in the shop!
