Deck Chairs

I am just stopping by to say hey and that I am thinking about redoing my deck chairs and might have opened up a large can of worms! (That’s a saying from the Blue Ridge Mountains where I grew up.) Anyway if I don’t post a picture here later you will know why. (LOL!) So so wish me luck!

More of my Roses I love sharing them!!!!

Hand painted glass button

Well it’s been awhile since I have posted a button. So today I decided to look through a jar of buttons that I picked up in the mountains while I was visiting my mom and oh my a little pretty. It is a pretty hand painted glass button.


It has been a really busy week for me so I am just stopping by to say hello!

Handmade table

So spring is here and I will be spending more time outside doing flowers and our garden so this crafting blog may just turn into a crafting, flower and garden blog. However I am going to do my best to keep the blog rolling.

So for today I am going to give you a new crafting idea it is a wooden table I made a few years back. It is not hard to make if you can find someone to cut the wood cut for you. (I do have access to my husband’s wonderful tools for that.)
Before you start you should have an idea of what size you want the table to be and the kind of wood you prefer (mine is oak) and the size is 46” W x 17” D and 30 ½ Tall.
Here is a list of the supplies you will need: You will need your wood for the top and side skirts, trim wood to trim the top and 4 legs (They sell the legs already cut.) and you will also need small nails, wood glue and hardware to attach the legs and then you will need to choose a stainable wood putty and stain of your choice.

Here is the picture of the table. And outside to the yard I go!

Here is a good idea for you crafters that will help keep you organized.

I just wanted to mention an apron I found at a site I follow she made it for holding sewing/crafting items. I really love it the choices of fabric and ribbon she put together are very tastefully done. CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK TO SEE IT!

If you have something you would like me to add here on the blog that is craft or collecting related just shoot me an email and I would be glad to add it.

Shell Buttons

Well I hope everyone had a great long weekend. We enjoyed it, although I did eat way too much!
Well I have been sitting here today trying to organize more of my buttons and wanted to share some of the shell buttons with you.
Also if any of you have ideas on organizing them I would love to hear from you. I keep changing the way I display them on my cards and it is not as easy as it sounds. But I really would like to have them all out of the old jars so I can see what I have.
Anyway I will quit babbling for now and upload the pictures.

This is a shell button with what looks like two moons on it.

This is a white carved design shell button.
