“It takes a genius to whine appealingly.” F. Scott Fitzgerald
I've been indulging in a little whine lately. I'm talking "attitude" not "alcohol." Mostly it's all been a mental vs. verbal whine. I'm back on the wagon now, and still feeling so grateful for all God's blessings.
The fall decorating around here is complete. Time and money were the ever-present factors that dictated the extent of my effort, but I'm happy with the results nonetheless.
Mums are a favorite of mine. There are so many varieties to choose from. This year I went rust-colored with white. They are lovely.
My aforementioned project with the Mod Podge didn't materialize. Turns out that it smelled too strong for me....headache and all. So I switched gears when I found this little metal vase for $4.19 and used that to arrange the flowers. My original plan was to decoupage fabric onto tin cans and hang them on my porch. I think I like this just as well.
This little towel is the only sewing I've done lately....for the gift stash.
Here's a knitted cloth....such an easy little project, and I love the round shape.
I picked up this sweet magazine...I love every project in it. There's even a pattern for crocheted socks, which I've never done.
This Austen Lace Muffler may just be the first thing I try. Isn't it darling?
I love the colors....the ruffles.....the buttons......the whole package.
For all you apronistas out there, check out this cute apron that was on display at Macy's. It's made out of satin that has the Macy's name in it, with tulle around the bottom. Wouldn't that be fun for the holidays?
It sure is good to be back here blogging....such a balm for a gal with a grateful heart that's hankerin' for a good whine :)
