No Rhyme Or Reason

Today you will find no rhyme or reason to this post.
I am so overwhelmed with finishing the kitchen by Friday as companies coming. But I thought,  "Who doesn't like fresh ideas to get your creative juices flowing?" So here's a few of my favorites!

This is so sweet for a baby shower.

Remember those sheet curtains that I haven't gotten made for my g'daughter yet? Wouldn't a matching bed skirt be cute to go with the curtains?

Have you ever thought of using ric-rac to make flowers with your embroidery? I'd like to try this.

My Dad spent years commercial fishing on the Mississippi River and he knit his own nets. In fact, he was knitting them right up to the day he passed away. I have two. I had never thought of using them for a light. Pretty neat idea!

These are regular bi-fold doors jazzed up.
I never would have dreamed you could make them look so good. This photo is especially for my Primmy friends! But they would look great in a farmhouse too, I think.
Well, I'm off to paint.  My favorite job you know:(

Don't work to hard painting and getting your kitchen finished.

Enjoy your company and have a great week.

Holly said...

Love all of the ideas. Especially like the bi-fold doors. Don't work too hard. Enjoy your company!

Christine said...

Sound like you got your creative juices flowing, again.

Your Dad knit his own nets?!
How great is that!
Impressed, for sure.

The fruit baby and that dust ruffle is so cute. I know how it is to have all these ideas, yet not get it all done. I've come to accept I'm going to one day die with my "to make" list being a mile long. One can dream big, and apparently I'm one of them. Hee hee!

Good luck on getting the kitchen finished. Don't work too hard.

LOVE the bed skirt idea... and I've been thinking of a new one myself!


Farm Girl said...

Well it is always nice to stop in and look around. I never knew tri fold doors could look that good either. Don't work to hard. I am not a fan of painting at all. :)
