Patriotic Dresden Pillow

**This post is a partnership with Nancy’s Notions all opinions are my own I am so excited to share with you this Patriotic Dresden Pillow.  I was sent a dresden ruler from Nancy’s Notions and decided it was time to start adding some accessories to my front porch, and a pillow for my prized chairs built for me by my dad more than 15 years ago would be a great place to start. The hardest part was choosing fabric. Sometimes…

Antique Ribbon Table Runner Pattern Review

I have had a few “pinch-me” moments since I’ve started blogging, and one came recently when I was invited to review a pattern for The Fat Quarter Shop.  I was given a credit to the shop and a copy of the pattern in exchange for my review, the opinions however are my own.  The pattern is called Antique Ribbon Table Runner.  It’s a really fun pattern and it’s made really simply by using a paper foundation. I decided to make…

10 reasons I love my Cricut Explore

Reading Nook for E

*I was given product in exchange for a blog post.  The opinions and project are my own. My older daughter has had at least 3 bedroom makeovers- the rest of my children have had 0.  I’ve decided it’s time to do something about that.  So, instead of starting with the next oldest child (who is a boy and just wants posters of sports heroes and cars on his walls) I started with the youngest.  She’s not yet 2 and doesn’t…

The Great Secretary Makeover

*I was provided the paint and wax used in this project free of charge in exchange for a post demonstrating their use.  The project and opinions are my own.* My Great-grandmother was an amazing woman.  She was full of spirit and fun.  I didn’t get to know her very well, as she passed away when I was only 8 years old, but I have memories of going to the zoo with her and spending time with her at my Grandmother’s…

Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve Everyone. I Hope you’re enjoying your family, friends and the wonders of the season.  I’m here with one last Christmas gift for you- an apron review and Giveaway!  I just love playing Santa. I had the chance to review a Grandway apron.  I chose the Grace and I love it.  It’s got such cute details like the faux bow in front, the ruched bust and the brown accent trim.  I really like that the neck is made…
