I'm beginning to decorate our home for fall and added a couple of new touches this year. I really didn't want to spend too much so I headed to Wal-Mart. I got a hand towel for the bathroom and a large pumpkin spice candle for our fireplace mantel. Then, I embellished both with some ribbon. It all added up to less than $10. I really loved how they turned out!

I made this last year in a class taught by Jennifer Stewart . It was neat to pull out and see pictures of my girls from last year - it is such a warm addition to our home.

This and That

I played with my sewing machine this past weekend and tried a simple project. I just did a little heart applique and then embellished with a ribbon and button. The shirt is for Lilly and she thinks it looks "fritty" (pretty).

I just HAVE to share these Lillybean photos with you. She was "reading" to me and the next thing I knew, she was daintily crossing one leg over the other while pointing her toes. I laughed and laughed and when I pulled out the camera, she told me, "No, don't tay my chitchure."
Oh my, I love that little girl.
