How do I love thee....

Did I tell you how much I love a good quality vintage sheet??Oh yes, I 'm so smitten in love with this one sheet, so I made this simple ruffle shoulder bag out of it. Its a bit large, but i like the ruffle.
Here's a close up of the material I love so much,
And this is a vintage tablecloth I found at a local thrift store. I made these little crochet flowers to attach and are removable.
So im in a bit of a shoulder bag frenzy, so much so , that I forgot to put in pockets! Anyways lots to do, lists to make, beds to make, dishes to do & the garden to till . In an odd moment today I caught this beautiful glimpse of a shadow of our hummingbird feeder on the kitchen wall. It was really pretty. This next month will be crazy busy, as we are having a Japanese exchange student come to live with us for awhile. My older son is so pumped, because they are close in age, and have very similar interests!
Maybe one day Tyler could go to Japan in exchange, something I totally wanted to do as a teen, but my grades sucked too bad! Anyways, if I get through our VBS Jungle Jaunt, and my Mary Kay open house alive I will have lots to post about! Have a fabulous weekend ladies!

As always, these are gorgeous. The exchange student thing is exciting and interesting! When I was teaching at an international school, the Japanese kids were so very sweet!

I love the embellishments on the bag. We recently hosted a Japanese student, it was a great experience. I am sure you will all have a great time!

Absolutely lovely!! I love the colors on your totes. Nice addition of your label as well!
Sounds like you have lots going on this summer. I'm sure your exchange student is going to have a wonderful stay with your family-and I'm sure your children will learn a lot from your student.

Enjoy these "not so lazy" days of summer!
