Wednesdays Projects...DONE!

Happy Friday!!
You may remember from my Wednesday post I did a little squacking about having a
"boatload" of projects to get done that day?
Ringin any bells?
Welllllllllll, I am happy to report that they did...in fact.....get DONE!
I love basking in the glow of completed projects!
First up was the stack of old feed sacks that were waiting to be made into pillows.
I have had these lined up to get done before CHRISTMAS!
You know how that goes....

Plus I had all the down inserts stacked ready and waiting taking up a big corner if space in my
ultra organized , totally put together studio... slash ...um computer, craft, spare bedroom
{insert sarcasm here}


While I loved looking at these all folded up neatly in a stack....


I am loving them even more now that they are DONE, they are priced, they are at the shop and they are OUT of my room!
Next on the list were some TAGS!
I have had a lump of some kind of clay stuff hanging around the computer/craft/spare bedroom since who knows when. I don't even know what kind it is...the label is MIA. Anyway I thought I could use it up and create some tags.




Plus I had these awesome old blue/green bottles lurking in a box in the ultra organized totally put together garage { more sarcasm needed here}





so I put them together...





and I am a likin what I see!






The "mystery clay lump" is used up so now I have to go on a search mission for more!


I thought these would be perfect to hold dandelions!
Remember being a kid and picking these for your mom?
Mine would always say "thank you" and put them in a juice glass and have a place of honor on the kitchen counter.
So these are now at the shop waiting to be priced but I will get that done today.


So there ya have it!
I am linking these projects to some parties today!
Please hop on over to:
P.S. Shhhhhh......the Etsy shop opening is getting closer! *wink* stay tuned!

Those bottles are so great!!! I love the color and that funny clay stuff worked perfect. I wish I could make some of those for our shop!
The pillows are so perfectly vintage, too! Don't you love the feeling of getting things accomplished?? ;-)

I can't wait for your Etsy store to open. Do you mind me asking how you make these clay tags? I understand if you don't want to give out you "ancient chineese secret"..haha.

Great job on the pillows... I need to take my sewing machine in and get it fixed so I can get some of my pillows done.

Enjoy your weekend.
