Polka-Dots Make Me Happy!

Sorry I went MIA!  I didn’t mean to be gone so long but you know how that goes.

Continuing with my mini home makeover, I’m tackling all the things in my house that I have painted black.   After we moved into this house in 2007, if something sat still long enough, it got painted black.  Looking around my house now, I’m determined to brighten things up!

If you love polka dots (who doesn’t) and lots of color you will love the dresser in my entry now!

You can also see in the after picture my new wall color by Valspar which is Gray Silt.  I love it!  Ok I will be back soon with more progress!

Pink/Green Patchwork Pocket Purse

That was a lot of P’s!

I have been wanting to make myself a pink and green purse. I finally got around to doing it last night.

Sorry these pictures aren’t that cute but it was 1:10 in the morning. So I didn’t really care about making them cute.

I pretty much like it overall. If I made another one I think I would make the pocket match more. But it will work for me. 🙂

Have a good weekend!

I plan on spending lots of time in my sewing room this weekend so I might have things to show you! Yea!
