Will summer come before I go to crazyville?

This lovely place is in Wyoming...we try to go there every summer.  I can't help but love the name, Crazy Woman Canyon.  I feel a little crazy today.  I need summer.  I need the warm breeze.  I have zero creative inspiration in me.  Crazy Woman Canyon is calling my name!

Saturday's find

.15 cents!  That's it...yes, fifteen cents for this Vera scarf.  Could it really be a Vera?  The tag says, scarves by VERA, it has a fancy font on the scarf with a cute ladybug next to it, so it has to be right?   If it isn't, please don't ruin my fun!

A new handbag you can make

When I was in China this summer, my sister went to yard sales and found these wonderful vintage handbags.  Aren't they cute?

I've been admiring this one and this one and this one from Anthropologie for quite some I decided to dig out some scarfs

 and match them up...

(this one needs a little bit more but it's a good start)

so easy and cute!  Can't wait to use one.

I love leather, day 3

I'm having issues with my camera so this is a little fuzzy...

Just a little yellow cottage amongst green and brown x's.

I love leather, day 2

I traced a heart with a pencil on to the leather and starting stitching...

It's a little tough working the needle through but so much fun!

Three basic x's in the corner...

and some sparkly rhinestones in the other corner.

I can't wait to use bright yellow thread next!

I love leather

I woke up in the middle of the night with an idea to do a leather sampler.  I have some leather scraps around since I love the feel, smell, look...and I also love all the samplers that people in art blog world are creating.  So, here's what I have begun.

The leather flower came from a belt and the piece that I stitched it to is from a boot that I picked up at a yard sale...I'm stitching one new thing per day until it is packed with goodies!

Month 3, Day 7 of 2010

Here are a few photos of the living room the day we moved in:

And here's what the room looks like now!

Does it look like the same room?  The fireplace needs a few finishing touches with replacing the trim that was removed when the giant mirror was put dad has been put in charge of finding the right pieces!

Here's the dining room before:

And after!  

I decided that I loved the tansy green in our family room so much I just had to have more of it in my house....

Here is is in our entry way.  I even painted the ceiling green!
