Funky Little Frame

 Third Sunday Flea Market frame, I think it cost me $2.

Some cleaning, a little fabric, four fabric tacks and black ribbon gives it a new lease on life.

It's just the splash of color that my chippy old farmhouse door needed.

Seeing Stars

Strolling the clearance aisle at TJ Maxx, I found this star for $6.  

I knew I wasn't in love with the black and wanted to soften it up somehow.  Burlap was just the right thing.

Now it looks perfect perched on my downstairs mantle.

Pretty in Pink

This fabric has been sitting around for a couple of months just waiting for me.  This weekend I finally crafted the cute fabric flowers, sewed on a rhinestone and added them to the pillows I made.

I liked the wrong side of the fabric better than the right side so used it that way for the pillow and then layered the fabric the right way for the flower.

Eager for Spring

Today I found these great flower pots at Tuesday Morning (only in purple, not turquoise). 

I've got a case of winter blahs after our mid-week blizzard and the snow piles everywhere so when I saw these sitting on the shelf, they were calling my name.

I can't wait to fill them with some of this...

Sadly, I've got a few months to wait but I'll certainly enjoy it when I finally get to place these at the front of my house and watch them grow all summer long.

Sometimes you just need a little nudge...

There's been a nudging now for a couple of years.  It was something I tried to ignore.  Then the nudges were joined by whispers that became even harder to ignore.  So, I'm finally doing it.  I'm blogging. 

I'm blogging without a specific plan - other than to have fun.  I'm blogging and making no promises as to how often I'll post.  I'm blogging with the word Sarahendipitous in mind.  I'm going to live that word while I enjoy and write about life's surprises and all the good things it has to offer.
