Sew & Tell: freshening the patio for spring

It’s definitely spring in my neck of the woods. The weather went from gloomy to fresh and sunny recently. Although I was ready for the change in seasons, my patio wasn’t. The cushions and pillows on my patio furniture have had it. They were old, faded and dingy. I would show you a picture but honestly, they were so bad it’s horrifying.

This post brought to you by Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.


After the holidays I was gung ho on spring cleaning. I tackled some big jobs like the wood blinds that are all over my house, the screens that have been collecting dirt and dust all winter and dust bunnies that keep multiplying and hiding.

Celebrations: spring flower inspiration

Today, I’m tag teaming with the lovely Kari at Ucreate to bring you some spring inspiration. Kari has some pretty floral Mother's Day ideas. And I’m showing you some different ways to display flowers.


Spring Flowers 14 aTo me, nothing says spring like fresh cut flowers. Even the tiniest vase with a single flower is an instant mood brightener. For this project, I bought inexpensive flowers to create several arrangements and had enough left over to use the odds and ends to create the floral frame above. Inside the frame I added an inspirational quote that Kari shared with me. I'm going to print it out and hang it above my craft table.

Inkling: paper mache confetti bowl

Confetti Bowl 7I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s very hard for me to throw away scraps of paper. I wouldn’t exactly classify it as hoarding but it could become a problem if I don’t use up the bits and pieces. This bowl wasn’t made out of paper scraps but paper catalogs. When I attended CHA in January, I came home with a lot of catalogs. The paper catalogs have pages and pages of pictures of pretty paper. How could I throw those away?
