Stripes Are A Good Thing...Part Two!

If you've been following along, you'll remember from "Stripes Are A Good Thing...Part One" that it all began with an oversized blue dress and a men's polo shirt.

Part one ended with this dress...

Next is part two, using the leftovers....

...which resulted in this skirt.

A fun, comfortable skirt with patch pockets on the front.

A buttoned slit at the back.

And, stripes down the side.


It was beautiful, but slightly windy day at the Oregon beach!

A Toad Stool Foot Stool!

My youngest daughter is expecting her first child in March.  She has decided to decorate the nursery in a woodland animals theme.  While shopping around for a comfortable swivel rocker for the nursery (which we found a perfect one at Value Village for only $7.99!) we luckily came across the perfect footstool to go with it.  Well, it had the makings of the perfect foot stool, we just needed to change it up a bit!

We started with this brown, furry mushroom-shaped foot stool...straight out of the 70's!  In fact, if this would have been orange, or yellow, it would have fit in perfectly with my junior high bedroom back in the day!
