Living and loving life with a little blogging on the side!
My mother in law has been in search for a new bedspread to fit her odd sized bed... She has been looking for months when she came across two twin size bedspreads that she had packed away from the early 1980's (She said they are thirty years old but you can not tell because they are in great shape!) So my father in law had an idea... He took the twin spreads and cut the ruffle off of the side of both spreads and then took out moms sewing machine and stitched them together... But he was not finished yet... He (with the help of mom) stitched these valences out of the ruffle he cut off the spreads... Wow now that made a cool matching set for the bedroom... I was very happy to see the job he did... I had no idea that he was so creative or could sew
I love it and they really look good together in their bedroom! Good job Popy
So I was reading a blog by Then she made and found this really cool way to make a soup storage can holder so I thought that I would try it myself so I start with a box like this then I cut the end off of my box because my pantry doors would not close because the box was too long then I taped the end I just cut off back to the place i just cut it off of but I tucked in the ends then I cut half way down the place I just taped to make a hole that I can pull the cans from when I need one Here is the finished end of one side next on the opposite side I cut a hole in the top so that I can add new cans to the back as I buy them that way I always use the oldest first next I took scrapbook paper and covered the box
I used this spray adhesive only because I love it! rubber cement will work just fine or what ever glue you wish
and here is my finished product! Woo Hoo I did this in only one hour! not bad I am quite happy with it. see how it works.....cans in back and pull out the front
I am so happy each year that my "Disney Land Rose Bush" blooms.
My sister and brother in law gave us this Rose bush about eight years ago and it still flowers every year
I know... I have blogged about my bush before but I really LOVE IT
I love the large blooms
I love the way it changes color
OH! Look what I found...
In years past I have had a problem with aphids
But not this year thanks to this sweet little man
