Latest Obsessions

My mom has had this cabinet since I can remember she used it for her china.  It used to belong to my great grandma.  My mothers, fathers mother.  Apparently it used to be a radio cabinet and then they turned it into a music cabinet.  The door is not part of the original cabinet and I don't think the shelves were either.  My mom had has it in storage for awhile but we got it out and I refinished it.   Of course I didn't get a before picture until I started the project. 

This was the first time I used spray painted.  I used ivory but I wish there wasn't so much yellow in it.  Then I distressed it lightly and put a wax on it.  I love the wax finish. 

For Christmas this year I thought I would make Josie some clothes since I haven't made her anything yet.  I used my old shirt and turned it into a dress.

Adorable, huh.

Then I found this cute tutorial on how to make this cardigan from Shwin and Shwin. Love it!

I made these boots.  Pattern from ithinksew.  These were harder just because they were small.

They didn't match the dress so I made these cute shoes also from shwin and shwin.  These were a cinch. 

I just hope they all fit her.  I think my new favorite thing is sewing.  Can't wait until Christmas.  My whole family will be there for a huge party.

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

This is the right site for everyone who really wants to understand
this topic. You know so much its almost tough to argue with
you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).
You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject which has been written
about for many years. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you ought to write more
on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but typically folks don't speak about these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!
