Sweet Valentine mug rug

Valentine's day is just around the corner,
and I managed to finish this little mug rug


I think it turned out pretty cute!
6 prints for 6 hearts, ranging from peach to pink to red,
with a interesting white and grey background.



The pattern I used is from Lori of Bee in my Bonnet
the same one I used for my niece E baby quilt:


see that little chick and the little heart?
yep that little block, repeated 6 times!

I used a lovely red print with Eiffel tower stamps for the back
and the binding, I like to use pretty fabric for the backing!


Since it looks like it will be snowing again this weekend,
it will be perfect accessory to enjoy a warm cup of tea
and some cookies, of course!




Happy valentine's day!

a simple teenager bathroom makeover, part two

In the summer 2019, I started  making over Miss C.'s bathroom,
with a new mirror, new lighting and new towel hangers.


I even repainted the vanity from brown to black,
much nicer with the black mirror.


We could have stopped there as she was quite pleased
with the outcome, but after removing the medicine cabinet,
she was a little short in storage,
so I built her some:



I built this cool ladder following this tutorial from Ana White (of course!)
and painted it black like the vanity.
It was not a complicated built, but it took me forever!


So now there is space to store extra TP,
Kleenex and more cactus!


Speaking of cactus, I found the perfect print:



Of course, I could have taken this makeover further 
by embracing the new trend of painting tiles,
but I thought it was good just as is.
Sometimes it is nice to keep things ....simple!



Happy Day!

blog anniversary

Eleven years!
I have been writing this little blog of mine for 11 years
and I still enjoy it!

While it has not grown much in all of these years,
I have; I tried and learned so many things.
There are still many things to try and learn
and get better at it,
but there is time, even during pandemic,
even as an essential worker.

Right now, I have mostly have time for small projects,
like this work in process that I hope to finish in time for Valentine's day:


Heart, candy, Eiffel tower, what's not to love?!



Happy day!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
