Vintage and Vino Event – Queencreek, AZ



I am so excited to be participating in this event next month!  There will be vintage, antique good, handmade, lots of wine, mimosas, good food and live music!

Stay tuned for some pictures of new table runners, pillows, towels and other goodies that I will be getting ready to take to the show, and posting available in the shop!




Handmade Home

After spending many months cleaning, scraping and painting just about everything around the house in preparation of selling, I finally got to enjoy doing some quick (maybe not too quick) sewing projects to pull the house together just a little bit more.

One of those items was this table cover.  It is actually a shower curtain that I cut and hemmed into a circle.  I found one in colors that were fairly neutral, matched my furniture, and was the perfect size to use on this table.  A lot less expensive to do that using upholstery/drapery fabric.

Another project was this slipcover for the loveseat.  I know it’s a little crumpled in this picture, but I used a natural color canvas fabric that I pre-washed.  I actually whipped this together quickly (well, rather quickly) just to get it done before the holidays.  I will probably make another one down the road, but for now, it’s an improvement!

My first slipcover, I really learned a lot!

I also needed something to add a little color in the den, so I used some floral drapery fabric that I had left after making window coverings for the french doors a couple of years ago.

A little hard to see here, but I wanted to give you a quick look.  Pretty simple, yet it really added to the room.

This is what the french doors look like.  I made the window treatments for the doors because we had a sleep sofa in the room that we used for out of town company.  We just removed the tassel tie-backs so the windows were covered for privacy.

This gives you a little more insight to what I’ve been doing, and why I have been so absent the last few months.  If you would like to see some of my furniture painting projects that I have been working on, stop by my other blog, All My Eggs.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your time with me!

Take care,
