Happy Valentine's Day Ruby and Layla

I do love Pinterest. You can really get some great ideas. My grandkids like it too. Layla really loved this cat, so I did my version for her. Ruby's horse was a pattern from SEW IT, STUFF IT. The horse is a vintage tablecloth that Ruby has been wanting me to cut for a long time. So Happy Valentine's Day my girls. Hope you love them.

Owl Pillow for Layla

Layla found an owl on Pinterest and we had to try it. She wanted it really big and fat. So we made it 38" long. She picked out one of my vintage sheets and will sleep with it tonight. She really loves her owl.

Goodwill 1/2 off sale

I only went to one Goodwill Saturday and it was packed with people because of 1/2 off day. Just couldn't believe I found all of these great items. The little red jar at the top is pretty small and so vintage. It was used as a sugar bowl ( still had some in it.). It was $.99.

Got 4 of these carnival glass punch bowl cups @ $.25 each.
I love this tea pot. Looks 1960's to me. It was $2.50.

I still thrift

Sometimes I forget to post all of my thrift finds. I found all of these at an antique store really cheap. I really love this pretty dresser scarf.

I got 2 of these with the birds. They would make some lovely pillows.

Layla and Ruby's hamsters

These little guys are brothers Chester and Georgia. The newest members of the family.

Layla designed a hammy toy

Layla just loves her little hamsters, so she wanted to make one. She designed it herself and decided to use felted wool. I helped sew it up, but she did most of it. She took it to school and her teacher wants her to make 2 for her kids. Great job Layla.
