Add Sweet Vintage English Candy Boxes to Your Decor



While out shopping a few weeks ago I spied
this sweet candy box nestled at an antiques store
on a glass shelf almost hidden among 
the other treasures with its 
vintage likeness of 
Queen Elizabeth II 
of England on it...
It just had to come home with me.

Out and About ~ Sweet Inspiring Gardens Nearby




This time of year I'm often dreaming of
gardens I've seen only in photographs.
You know the ones ~ those lovely
ethereal little window box gardens and 
small front yard gardens with
potted trees and annuals blooming madly
for people passing by.
I'm talking about the summer gardens
of France and England...

Flirty skirts... We all like wearing those cute swingy skirts
when we are young and sometimes we even
like wearing short flirty skirts when we get
a little bit older.
;)

But, today I'm sharing about how to
make a fun and flirty chair 
slipcover skirt!

Just a Quick Post...



Just a quick post...
Was really under the weather yesterday so I
got NOTHING done so doing double time
today!  :)  

I've been wanting to make some pretty
drop cloth slipcovers for these two
chairs here in our Prairie Home
for a little while now.
I saw a cute idea over at a favorite store
{I'll share that place when I post the final post tomorrow or Friday}
 and that gave me an idea!

flirty little dining room chair cover
I just designed...

Fun and Funky Clothing ~ Texas Chic at Sassy Pantz!



Since arriving in Texas back in November
I have been noodling how to describe
the style of clothing many women wear here.
It's different than the capris and a t-shirt
or jeans and a button-up shirt
or even a tank top and cutoffs.
It's Texas Chic...
