DIY Starbucks Costume

Edie actually let me make her a costume this year... Usually, She needs to look pretty or cool so it has been store bought for her!  So much fun to make this costume and really not hard at all.  The "tricky" part was the iron on transfer Starbucks logo.  Lila helped me with that which we got the logo from the internet and printed it from our printer at home onto transfer paper found at JoAnn.  It is fleece and could be no sew if you wanted to do it even more simply by using fabric glue.  The batting was glued and the lid and batting were also glued onto a simple white headband also found at JoAnn. I took a marker and drew the back of the sleeve and Starbucks gave us the lid and stir.

Tickled Pink - Dorothy Amling

This post is so long overdue - I want to give a very special THANK YOU to my friend, Dorothy Amling (the owner of Tickled Pink) who was such a huge help to me at my spring barn sale and with whom that night, I would have really been in a pinch without her.  I met Dorothy many years ago at an event in Bexley, OH and really just liked her from minute one.  Dorothy is so talented and I love her big signature flowered pins she makes that she is wearing in the photo.  Dorothy sets up in Springfield, OH at the Extravaganza and at the Country Living Fairs.  Check her out!

Owl's New Home

A few years back, I made this owl for the barn door at my sale out of recycled materials.  One of my customers from that sale had always admired it and shared with me at the Country Living Fair a few weeks back that she loved the owl and bought it from me.  Here it is hanging at it's new home.  Thank you for sharing Jennifer.  It looks wonderful!
