I found these 2 old window boxes at a garage sale this past weekend. They are metal and have been painted with silver paint to stop the rust:( While that would be a great idea if I wanted to use them outside as actual window boxes I'm not really digging the silver look. The inside isn't as well painted but the outside is just too silver. So... what should I do with them? Sand them down good? Paint them? And where would YOU put them? What would YOU put in them???? At least one anyway, 2 might be overkill but I think one could be really fun to use inside somewhere. So tell me what ya think:)

The VBS my girls are going to this week is doing an Egyptian theme. Anyone who wanted to could dress up. The people at this church go all out dressing up so I knew my girls would want to dress up too. So I decided to rise to the occasion - sort of. I refused to buy anything, determined to use what I had on hand. Here's what I came up with.

As often as I will let her, Middle Sister gets the camera and prances around the house snapping pictures. Most of them end up in the 'recycle bin' but I do have a picture file labeled 'Middle Sister's Pictures'. Actually I used her REAL name but since this is my blog and on my blog I use her blog name...ahem. Anyway, where was I?? Oh yes, Middle Sister's pictures. Below are some shots I thought were kinda neat. Don't know how she managed to blur the background of the top one but I'm likin' it:)
I'm thinking photography classes might be in her future!!

This and That
I recently made a couple skirt patterns and some skirts for a friend. This was the 'tip' she gave me!! LOVE it:) She knows me well!
I mentioned when I posted the 'after' pics of my sewing/computer/school/craft room that my ironing board was getting a new cover if I could find someone to make one;)
'Someone' finally got it made!!
Now doesn't that look better??
First new skirt I've made for me this season. Finished it for the 4th of July. It's the most comfortable thing I own!

Couch Pillows finally covered
My furniture came with 4 matching pillows. Ever since the white slipcovers went on I've been wanting to cover the pillows also. Last week I decided I was tired of them lying on the floor of my sewing room waiting 'their turn'. So I pulled out my linen scraps and vintage embellishings and voila! 'new' pillows:)
