Reinvented Centerpiece

 This is my current centerpiece. I loved the battery operated candles, so I bought another one while they were still 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby. As you can see, I re-used many of the items from my Christmas centerpiece. As I said, I bought the third candle and the boxwood ball. I already had the other items and pulled the moss off a tree! Hmm, I wish I had "lit" the candles for the now photo!
We actually had a sunny day on Sunday. I took advantage! I cut back my asparagus and weeded around it. It is cold, windy and wet again today. 
Y'all come back,

Tassel Addiction

I discovered tassels on the Nesters blog . I decided to make some for prizes for the Annual Cookie Exchange that I hose with my sister-in-law. These are my first two attempts. I was pleased and hooked!
After the Christmas rush and before school started again, I made two more. 

I have now added wire racks to my craft room for storing my ribbon. Sadly, I have not made any more tassels since school started. I have been busy crocheting and clogging in my spare time.
Y'all come back!

Tacky Sweater flashback and "fixing" kitties!

     Our faculty Christmas party was a "tacky sweater" party. I used a long knit shirt that I wore when I was pregnant with my youngest. He is now 18. I don't clean out my closet very often! I wore it with stirrup pants back then. I used eyelash fringe and pink rhinestones for the Christmas tree and a feather boa hair clip to top it off. I wish I had found pink rhinestone earrings  and a bracelet to go with it! 
     This weekend, I took the three newest kitties to be "fixed" at the vets office. I always hate doing this. I feel like a Mom leaving her child on the first day of school! Kitties were glad to be back home and are doing well. They are not holding it against me. 
Y'all come back,
