First Pumpkins of the Season

I was watering my vegetable garden early this morning and I noticed the first pumpkins of the season! These little guys are so cute I could't help taking their pics.

Suitcase - Before and After

I found this little suitcase at a thrift store and decided to do something fun with it. Emma and I painted it and then decoupaged family pictures on to both sides. The pictures are of three generations (Emma, my mother and I). I was amazed at how much we all looked alike as little girls!

Barbie's Soon to be Snuggie

I came across a cute and somewhat ridiculous pattern for a Barbie Snuggie....of course I HAVE to make it! Coming soon....

Barbie's New Furniture

So Em and I recently acquired the Barbie two story townhouse with the crank elevator. It is quite lacking in furniture so we decided to create our own. I used fabric that I already had and dug into the 5lb. bag of stuffing to plump them up! Barbie now has a lovely and plush comforter, chair and a sofa...of course with matching pillows. I made the pillows extra special by embroidering on them. Barbie seems to really like them!
