|Come on in, set a spell!|
Nothing serious but those who live with a chronic illness know how such days can hit from nowhere. Sigh...
Otherwise, my week has been just fine thank you. Let me show you... ;)
In the midst of all the review book reading (the reviews on the bottom two books coming up soon), I am taking a mental vacation by reading one of my all time favorite books, that link... here*. If I was on an island and only had a few books to take with me, this would be one of them!
Decorating by Tweaking
There was a little moving around here and there to put the Kitchen Aid back on the kitchen counter. More coming up soon.
One finds pantry space where available. This cute table was a long ago thrift store find. It sits behind the Lazy Boy chair. Sometimes there are also baskets on the floor between the two when necessary.
|I was asked what is in the barn, I don't know as I have never been in it. The road leading to that farm is actually far down our country road.|
We had a brief warm up so the snow is not so deep as it was. At least we are not like our New England family who has snow measured in feet!
I plan to do an entire post updating my scrapbook journal soon but here is an answer to a question from last week. Most of my washi tape has been purchased as I find it at various craft stores and box stores (ie: Michaels, Joanne's, Walmart, etc.) The washi tape used above was purchased in a package of three complimenting designs at Michaels.
But I have ordered some through Amazon. The Vintage Christmas washi tape above come in a set as do all washi tapes (I think) offered by Cavallini. It can be found... here*. I used it a lot at Christmas and found the way the Cavallini tapes are designed to mix and match made creating so much fun.
I also have their Flora and Fauna set, link... here.* I purchased it with Christmas credit but haven't had a chance to use it, yet. Like their Christmas set, it is designed to mix and match. They have other lovely sets that I don't own but you can view by clicking the above link.
This is the other washi tape ordered from Amazon. It is bright and vibrant where as the other tape I've shown you is more of a vintage style. The link to the above tape is... here*.
Most washi tape is decorated masking tape so it is transparent but I also have washi tape that is made of fabric. That is what the washi tape on the battery operated votive light above is made with.
I have found that you get what you pay for when purchasing washi tape. The very cheap stuff often has only a small amount of tape on the spool whereas spending a little more gives you a whole lot more in size and quality. And really, compared to most art supplies, even the good stuff is not all that expensive.
Because You Asked
A reader asked what that was hanging under the bulletin board? This lovely personalized quilted wall hanging made by a dear blog friend. It makes me happy just looking at it while I work.
