Crafting here and there

The frames that I ordered for Annabelle's letter blocks arrived the other day, and they are perfect! Is there anything you can't find on ebay?? Anyway, I needed 11" frames, which are hard to find in stores.
I had mitered the borders of the blocks, which was not difficult, really. Then I just put a piece of batting between the block and the frame backing. Want to see each one (sort of) up close?
So that was my little project. :-) I even hung them myself and they are level, if you can believe it! I took a picture of another wall in Annabelle's room...I had found these wall stickers at Target last summer.
We had a lot of fun putting these up. And they're easily removable, a big plus!
I went to Christmas Tree Shops the other day...hadn't been there in awhile! Check out these heart placemats I found.
They're nice and big...and look at the quilting! There are little hearts quilted right in!
The best part...$3 for TWO! Ah, love that store. I also got these two storage boxes for some sewing supplies...
These were $4 each, I think. I just love the pattern!
I couldn't leave my kitties out of the I bought them a new "Super Scratcher." Just add catnip and watch them go nuts!
This morning I took the kids to a Country Folk Art Craft Show. It was nice, but not as big as usual. Anyway I did buy this pretty pincushion.
The vendor had a gorgeous booth. Her website is in case you're interested. The cupcake was made from sweaters. Lots of other cute shabby chic stuff too.
Don't forget to enter my giveaway for the Gooseberry Patch cookbook! I'll be selecting the winner next week! Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I love reading about your projects. It makes me want to get my sewing machine out, but I can't do things nearly as well as you do. I love the sweethaert placemats. I SO LOVE the Christmas Tree Shop. I think I'll hit it tomorrow to see if I can find those placemats. I bet they are all gone here. It's a smaller store and I know that if I don't hit it once a week, I miss out on so much!!

  2. Those placemats are WAY cute!!! I love them! What a great idea for Valentines Day :)

  3. My goodness girl--you have been a busy little bee--and look at all the worms you have caught???lol

    Hugs, Di and miss gracie
