want a better sweater?

I've had this boring, white cardigan sweater for about two years that I got it on clearance at Wal-Mart for super cheap! But... I have only worn it once...and that's saying something because I'm definitely a sweater person... Sweaters are probably my favorite article of clothing, and I think I have one in just about every color! Since I'm short, the white sweater was too long in the waist and the sleeves were also too long. I prefer bracelet or 3/4 length sleeves. So, in order to make my white sweater more appealing to me, I decided to spruce it up! Want to make one too? Here's what I did!

fall...i can feel it

Don't you just love fall? I love the way the leaves turn pretty colors and the crisp feeling in the air! Since we live in AR...fall always comes a little later that I'd like it to! It's still warm here, but we had a few cooler days last week! I think my husband is ready to skip right over fall though...he's in the other room drinking hot chocolate! :)

Since it's now well into September, well actually September is almost over...(Can you believe it?!) I decided to put up some fall decor.

wreath I made with dollar tree leaves, pine-cones, etc..

sewing table makeover

After scouring craigslist and ebay for an old fashioned, fold-out sewing machine table with no luck, I happened to walk into Goodwill one random day this summer just to see what all they had...never expecting to find this!

Ah, a fold-out sewing table!!!

crazy about coral

Crazy about Coral? Why yes, I am. Something about this beautiful color just makes me smile!....As does creating!

Here on my little blog I plan on posting my sewing adventures, miscellaneous crafting, re-purposing my thrift store finds, design inspirations, and a little about my life.
