Working on some pretty Display Towels

Hello everyone!! I am working on some new pretty embellished display handtowels this week, and wanted to show you the first one that is finished and now listed on Ebay ~ you can click the picture on my right sidebar to take you to the listing. This one is made with some pretty quilting squares, and they are all fabrics by Rachel Ashwell. I plan to make another handtowel with more of these pretty squares, and a couple with some pretty rose fabrics ~ so if I'm not around much here in blogland, you know why, lol :)

Tomorrow we have someone coming out to check our washing machine, as it seems to be leaking water out from under the bottom ~ good thing we purchased a 5 year warranty on it (we bought the set 3 years ago), so we don't have to pay to have it fixed!

Have a great week everyone! Until next time sweet friends :)

Finished Rachel Ashwell Squares Quilt

Happy "hump" day everyone! Today I finished working on a sweet quilt that I posted about a few posts back, and wanted to share some pics of it with you ~ I won this quilt kit on Ebay from Abbie's Ebay store, Specialjays, and I am so thrilled with how it turned out! It came with all the squares and the strips for the sides, and I added the flirty pleated pink ruffle and the backing fabric, which is also fabric from Rachel Ashwells Simply shabby chic line (actually, it was a valance that I found at Goodwill), and was just waiting for the right project to use it on.

This is where I have it displayed.......for now ~ I know I will be moving it around and putting it in different areas of my home over time, lol :)

Thanks so much for stopping by......until next time sweet friends!!

Some Goodwill Treasure Makeovers & new pics of my Grandson

Hello Everyone! I hope you all have been having a great week so far :) Today I wanted to show you some great Goodwill treasures that I have found recently that I've given a shabby, but of course, oh-so-chic makeover to ~ first up is this really sweet little demi-lune table ~ it does have some minor issues with it, mainly some missing pieces of veneer, so painting it was the best course of action ~ I painted it a very nice soft pale pink, and I plan to put it in our little entry-way off of our living room.

Next is this fabulous vintage silverplated tray ~ loved the details on this with the handles and the sweet feet on the bottom ~ I painted it my favorite shabby white paint, Dover White, by Krylon Fusion....

And next up is this Gorgeous Vintage Syroco mirror ~ orignally a gold tone color, I painted this too the Dover White, and it now hangs in my Living Room...

Love the details on this mirror...

And now for the BEST pictures of all, my sweet & adorable Grandson Seth...

I just love his facial expression in this photo...he looks like he's trying to be mischivous, lol :)

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I always love to have you visit, and I love to read everyone's comments ♥♥♥♥

Until next time sweet friends!!!

Vintage Toleware Bed Crown ~ Now on Ebay!

Some of you may remember me posting about this fabulous vintage toleware bed crown/canopy a while back, and I chose to keep it for myself for a while to enjoy and display in our master bedroom, well now I have finally decided to part with it (am I crazy?), and have now got it listed in my Ebay shoppe ~ if you are interested in it, you can go HERE to check it out.

I haven't seen my sweet new grandson for 2 days now, as I've been trying to get rid of this head cold that I have ~ hopefully I will see him tomorrow, as she has to take him to a check-up with her Primary doctor, and she will need some help.

Until next time sweet friends!! :)

New Photo of Seth

Today I spent most of the day over at Amber's helping her out taking care of Seth so that she could get some rest, as the little stinker pretty much stayed awake almost all night! Looks like he has his days and nights a little mixed up. I managed to take a quick picture of him while he was sleeping ~ doesn't he look like a little angel :) But he does have a little devil in him too, lol :)

Introducing Seth William McKinlay

Oh my goodness, what a LONG couple of days it has been.....but my sweet precious grandchild has made his way finally into the world!!! He was born at 2:31 a.m. this morning, so yes, his birth-day is 9-10-'11!! How awesome is that :) He weighed in at 8 lbs. 3.1 oz., and 20" long.

Here is Amber just moments after giving birth holding her precious son....I am soooo very proud of her, she was in such misery and so tired, but she did what she needed to do to bring him into this world....such strength she showed!! I love you sweet baby girl!!!

Until next time sweet friends!

Grandchild Update

Hi everyone, just wanted you all to know that Amber is in the early stages of Labor right now.....I went with her to her Doctor's appointment this morning, as she called me to let me know she had started to have a little bit of contractions, and wanting me to take her to the appointment ~ she's only dialated between 1-2 centimeters, as of this morning ~ the contractions she is having are rather irregular, sometimes within 4 minutes, then not for another 10 minutes or so. And, unfortunately, she is having some back labor :( I think that is the WORST labor to have, as I had that with my youngest, Austin, and it hurt like a "you know what!" She's home right now, trying to get some laundry and things done ~ the doctor told her she should be up and around for a while, then rest for a little bit, then repeat, lol, that way she doesn't just lie around, which could slow down the contractions or make them stop. I've been calling her on the hour to see how she's doing ~ If she thinks she needs to go to the hospital, then she is to call me, and I'll be right there to take her, as I'm only about 10 minutes away from their home. Kevin is at work, and it would take him about 45 minutes to get home...this way he can just go straight to the hospital. However, he should be home in about the next couple of hours or so.

I'm getting pretty excited, and very nervous here ladies!! I just want this to go okay for her, and to have this precious little boy be here soon :)

Until next time sweet friends!!

My Niece's New Etsy Shoppe & What I'm working on

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful Labor Day Weekend with family and friends. Ours could have started off better ~ we had a really bad rain storm come thru West Michigan Early Saturday morning, and with the high winds, it knocked out power for several counties, including Newaygo county, which we live in, and we just got our power back today at 4:30 p.m.!! We had a Fish fry here yesterday, and thankfully the weather was nice by that time, and everyone had a good time, and lots to eat, regardless of the fact we had no power! :)

First, I wanted to let you know of something that I started working on a couple of days ago....I purchased this quilt kit from Abbie, over at Specialjays on Ebay, that has 81 5 inch square fabrics and side strips, with gorgeous Rachel Ashwell rose fabrics. It is going to be such a beautiful quilt when I get it all finished, and yes, I will be sure to post about it when I do :)

My main reason for doing this post today, is to let you all know about a new shoppe on Etsy, that was just recently opened by me sweet Niece, Susan, called LeeCrochet, and she is offering up the cutest Infant and Toddler/Child size hats that she crochets ~ she is also welcoming custom orders, if there is something special that you would like her to make. So I hope you will stop on over and check out what she has to offer up so far ~ below are just a couple of the cutest hats she has listed....

Time for me to see if they are going to finally get the Nascar race at Atlanta started; it's been under a rain delay, but they have been trying to dry the track so the guys can get to racin'......Until next time sweet friends!!
