I found this trivet at an antique store, made from bottle caps and vintage fabric scraps. Somebody spent a lot of time on this cutie and I swooped it up for hardly 1.00. I bet this could be constructed with covered buttons (minus the shank). I don't forsee myself attacking that project anytime soon...how about you?
I've always been a bad stuffer. Convinced that I was missing some secret ability, I stayed away from the stuffing business. But, I figured it out now. Ah-Ha, the reason the pillows turn out so lumpy is because the fabric is too thin. So to thicken it up a bit, I started quilting the fabric to some batting (or use a heavier-weight fabric) to hide the bumps. The quilted rows give the fabric a soft and cozy feel too, reminds me of camping for some reason?
Back from a too-quick visit to Cape Cod! M & D rented a cute cottage on a perfect little pond. M & D, my twin sister, brother & wife & 2 kids, myself & Micah and my nephew piled in for the week. I knew this vacation was a good one when the tears burst from Micah's eyes as we waved good-bye to my nephew and headed for home. The kind of tears that made me want to jump into the backseat of the car and hug him for having such a big heart. Unfortunately, I was driving. Thankfully, my twin sis was already leaping between the seats before I had the chance to say a word of comfort to him. Signs of a good vacation indeed.
I love Mod. That pop of color with rounded lines. It says, I'm innovative yet simplistic yet cheerful. In my business, I try to offer a variety of styles to appeal to different tastes...and it's so hard to choose sometimes because I love so many things. But I declare, everyone needs to bring a smidge of Mod into their life.
