AIMEE - The Magic round Jar that she saved her pennies in.
The background fabric I chose reminds me of the fancy glass jars of cold cream that used to sit on my grandmother's vanity. Once the cold cream was gone, my grandmother would wash out the jar and store beautiful buttons in them.
I too enjoy books for Christmas, especially Cookbooks and picture laden books about quilts. (grin) I chose a soft green solid similar in color to a White Pine Christmas tree with a background fabric reflective of Mathmatics and Literature.
A bit behind in my sewing this week due to a home renovation project.
Hubby & I are doing all the work ourselves (except electrical stuff)
We are building a small kitchen in the lower level of our home.
Here is the BEFORE picture:
My vision for these Oak Cabinets - soft French Vintage. So far I've spent a couple of days sanding all the wood smooth and I've begun painting. I chose a chalk paint in "Paris Grey" and some relief adornments for a few of the doors. Once painted I will add a faux finish patina to them. We'll see how things go....
Wishing you a Fabulous November Weekend!
