showin' some leg -- chair slipcover

We have a new member of the family.

She has beautiful arms and gorgeous curvy legs.

I made her a white linen top and a skirt.

A mini skirt.

To show off her legs...

bright idea

So one day I was looking for something in my jewelry box and I discovered a tangled mess of necklaces. I think it took me three days to untangle them all. Well that's just unacceptable.  I don't know how it got so bad, but I needed a jewelry box intervention.  Every crafty challenge needs a little inspiration right?  Well I'm sure you know what comes next...


I just didn't come across any jewelry holders that I loved.  And believe me I looked.


Then I had an idea.

A bright one!

souper find!

I've been wanting to add a soup tureen to my collection and on one of our treasure hunts lately I spied this!!!

Something a little like this...
