So much time

I have had these listed in my Etsy shop.....

These little hand embroidered bird house and birds were so cute. But still have not sold.........

Soooooo.........I have changed them up a little.  No one wanted as they were so I trimmed them out with ric rac, and am making them into a day of the week banner.  I think it would be very cute in a babie's/childs room, or as a valance, or a teacher's class room. 

I am not finished yet but they are going to be just too cute.  Here it is, draped across my dining room mirror.  I need to find a better rope to use for hanging.  All I have left to do is sew them to a rope.

 And.......I also bought this bench at a benefit for a family who lost the father and 9 yr old son......this is so sad, the dad and son killed in a car crash after driving into a lake in a neighborhood while delivering newspapers.   I was glad to help out for the benefit and at the same time find this old 1940s stool. 

After I cleaned up the stool, I dug out my old kimono I got at an estate sale.  Now, this thing has seen better days, but I was saving for just the right repurpose.  

Here is the kimono before, I bought it for the embroidery, got it really cheap too.

And now it is this.......

It's so pretty with this chunky embroidery......

Well, that's all for this weekend.  Went to a wedding yesterday.  Had a great time, we left after eating though.....hahaha.  I felt bad about eating & leaving but Hubby has cancer, he needs his rest.

So long for now.


  1. I really love the idea of using the tea towels for a banner, very cute!
    I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of the man and his son...
    I think your bench turned out beautiful!!

    I hope all is well with your husband and that you have a wonderful week!

  2. Love your little stool and the facelift you have given it. That's just beyond sad to think of the poor family who have lost loved ones like they did.
