{ rag rug }

I've been wanting to make a rag rug for awhile now. I have a small *wink* obsession with floral sheets. I pick them up at yard sales all the time, wait.......I mean occasionally I will buy a sheet at a yard sale......

You can make a rag rug the traditional way, by braiding three stands of torn sheets together and then sewing the braid onto a backing of some kind...or you can crochet a single stand of torn sheet into a rug. I tried both and I prefer crocheting the rug. 
 Here's my floral rag rug. 
I think it's home is going to be Miss Jillian's room...when she has one, which will be someday soon....eventually......hopefully!

{ party decorations }

Here's a sneak peek at some of  our Prairie Sisters party Decor! 
We decorated these old blue mason jars with burlap, lace, frames and vintage cowgirl photos. These jars will be sitting pretty and holding  flowers on all the tables. I really hope your not going to miss this party. It's the best vintage show EVER!

{ I'm 6 months old today! }

HI! I'm Jillian and I'm 6 MONTHS OLD today!!! Look how CUTE I am!!!
At 6 months I am sitting up, reaching for people, Hugging and snuggling, eating LOTS of yummy food and talking up a jibber jabber storm to anyone who will listen. I love peek a boo and my binki. I have my daddy wrapped around my finger and my sisters love holding me and telling my how cute I am! I LOVE my LIFE!

{ dresser fix up }

I have to show you this dresser I picked up on the side of the road a couple weeks ago. (Yes, I'm the kinda girl who stops and picks up stuff on the side of the road, which drives Buck nuts!) When I found this dresser I was in the car and I didn't want to just leave it there to go get the truck....I mean someone else might grab it before I got back..anyway....I needed to fit  this dresser in the trunk of my car!!!! I pulled out all the drawers and put them in my front seat, because the back seat if full of kids and opened up my trunk.I tried and tried but, It wouldn't fit anyway except standing up! I'm pretty sure people who were driving by ....were laughing at me on the side of the road trying to cram a dresser in my trunk!!!! I stood the dresser up and put bungee cords on it, attaching it to my trunk! I then drove home very slowly.........very slowly........Well, it was all worth it. Here is the before,

And here is the after! Numbers on furniture is a very big trend right now. I think it's so cute. I'm very tempted to keep it. I'll have to hide it from Rodeo man though!!!!

{ Garden Party }

Here is photos from our Garden Party @ At Home MT in Stevensville this past weekend! 
WE had a great time and had beautiful weather.

I had this lovely tree in the middle of our booth! Added a nice ambiance!

A new addition to the show this time, Lace cards. Lots of really pretty vintage lace on cards for just $4

This map table was one of my favorite projects this time.

Also LOVE this turquoise desk with the crown!

FUN IDEA: We turned these clipboards into chalkboard clipboards!

Our next show is August 25th in somers. Hope to see you there!
