Peeks from My Week!
I don't know about you, but I do love a lazy Sunday afternoon. I thought since I had some time to spare, I'd show you a few projects from the past week. For those of you who said a prayer for my dad's surgery, thank you! The surgery went well and he is doing great!
One afternoon this week, I came home with lots of energy to spare (not typical of a kindergarten teacher) and decided to paint my window trim and sew my curtain.
I have had the fabric for a while now. Some of you may remember me asking your opinion on your favorites. Well, I ended up choosing one that wasn't even in that post. I found this Waverly fabric on fabric.com and fell in love. It is called Charismatic Honeysuckle and features most of the colors I love so much. It has a pale aqua blue/minty green background and pops of orange, peach, cream, lime, khaki, cherry red, & mustard. I love it!
It's difficult to see the light fixture in the photo above since it is glass. This is the one I chose and I love it!
Tuesday, I spent the majority of the day at the hospital with my mom and sister while we waited for my dad to come out of surgery and recovery and be placed in a room. After he was settled in, I made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby to pick up a couple things. I bought this boxwood sphere and placed it in one of my tureens to add some color to the vignette.
I bought a couple hooks to hang dishtowels or pot holders on. Here is one.
And here is where I had the hubby hang it.
Here's the other. This is the one I went after but I decided to get two and wanted them to be different. This one is ceramic and metal.
Here is where it hangs.
This is the number one reason I went to Hobby Lobby though. I have been wanting one of these double faced clocks for a while. They were on sale 50% off so I had to have it!
Here it is from the dining room.
And here it is from the kitchen side. I love it!!!
Another quick little project was repainting these frames. I have had these hanging in my bathroom for a while and just love them, but I thought they needed some color. They were thrifted of course.
I spent about an hour carefully taping over the gold because I wanted to keep it and just paint the brown. They didn't turn out perfect since the paint leaked in under the tape a little, but I still think they look so much better!
Here's another before and after. I really liked the fabric that was on the chair before, but I wasn't overly happy with it and have been wanting something different for a while. So, since I had a little of the Waverly fabric left over from the kitchen curtain, I decided to recover it. I really like the big, bold flowers and the green was perfect!
Here is where the chair "lives". It usually holds my purse and anything I bring home from work. It sits by the front door in my "entry". I know I have a lot of color going on here. Do you think it looks OK?
I used my little wire basket to hold a clear vase and some branches from my Sparkle Berry tree.
I think it looks pretty.
Last project share...I know this post was long!
I used a piece of the Waverly fabric to recover one of my sofa pillows. I wanted something brighter than the dark ones that matched the sofa. I wanted to make two, but didn't have enough fabric. That's why I used it to recover the chair instead.
I had one very small piece left and I decided to put it in a hoop. I love hoop art!
I also printed a new piece of "art" for the clipboard. This scripture is perfect for me lately.
Well, if you're still reading, you made it! I appreciate your taking time out of your day to catch up with me and my life. This week is Teacher Appreciation week and my boss is providing lunch for us tomorrow and then letting us leave and go out to lunch Tuesday, and she's paying for our lunch! I have an awesome boss. We normally only get to leave for lunch on days when the students aren't there, so this is a treat! I am off work Friday because my daughter and I have a weekend get away planned! I bought her Beauty and the Beast theater tickets for Christmas and this upcoming weekend is when it is playing. We are both so excited to get away for a couple days. I'll share when I return. I may share a couple things before then if time allows. Hope you have a blessed and beautiful week.
Until next time....
