Have you ever had one of those days where you cannot get motivated? Your fourth or fifth cup of coffee hasn't kicked in (and never did)? Welcome to my Wednesday!
We have to remember that every day cannot be as productive as the last, its okay when it isn't. Taking a break can be the best motivation and recharge you.
That being said: SURPRISES can make any day a better day! My daughter Britt, was in Cincinnati last week and squeezed in a trip to Ikea.
A sweet bounty! Check out the dog rear-end! In my favorite color no less! I will have to find a special place for that.
I happen to love these napkins and napkin holder! They will make a bright addition to the dining room table. Have you ever gotten cool napkins and never used them because you don't want to 'waste' them? Me. I'm sure if I mention that to Britt she will promptly take one and wipe her mouth on it proving to me that they are just napkins.
And now to the fabric. The icing on the cake. The piece de resistance.
I love this one. I love the line drawings. Splashes of color. All together it makes for a very interesting piece and I am sure one day it will become something spectacular!
I kind of went 'ga-ga' over this one! Its a home dec fabric with great color and design. My first thought was that I have to make a bag from this. My second thought was I can't make a bag out of this.
I am not a confident purse/bag/tote maker. I would like to be. I think I could be. But I am not right now. And then, what kind would I make? I get overwhelmed looking and usually end up giving up! If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear from you. I would even let you make it for me!
I was happy yesterday looking at all these treasures. Happy that my daughter made my day better with a seemingly small act of kindness!
