Crafting Today

Love Bunny made a decorating suggestion. Yesssssss, he did!! Now, he truly could not care any less about how I decorate his castle. That is NOT an exaggeration. He truly doesn't as long as it makes me happy. That's his aim in life - to make me happy because when mom's happy everybody's happy. :-) Anyway, he thought the print over the sofa that I got (see it here), should go over the new mantel. And I agree with him! Sooooooo since I'm kind of in limbo today about doing anything but getting ready for our camping trip for the labor day weekend (yes, I'll take my camera so you all can see the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho - gorgeous) I thought I'd do something creative for ME!

So I didn't have anything to do except craft. I got this little vintage drawer at a yard sale about 5 or 6 years ago and haven't done anything with it yet. So I've decided that it should go over the sofa.......with a bit of frou frou-ing up, of course. This is the inside (front). I've put little hangers on the back as you can see in a couple of the photos.

I've gotten this far using snippets of vintage laces, trims and roses tacks.

I also thought of doing this little bottle rack. It had 8 bottles when I bought it and sold 4 of them because it was a bit difficult trying to get the lower bottles in and out. So I sold them separately and put a little pizzazz on the bottom shelf and the other 4 bottles on the top. I'll be selling this on my selling blog, la maison rose, so you might want to check it out if interested at all.


  1. You are a blessed woman with a man like that! :0) My guy is that way too. He lets me do all the decorating as long as he has his bed, his TV, his lazy boy and the fridge! I love your cute little drawer and can't wait to see it when it's all done!

    Hugs! Sharon

  2. What a great hubby! Mr. Teapot lets me do pretty much whatever I want, except painting all the wood in the house.. he loves wood!

    Have fun camping ~ I'll check back for photos! Don't forget the smores..


  3. Ive got a keeper for a husband as well! He lets me do whatever I want in the house.
    I like what your doing with the shelf!
    really pretty!

  4. Well Hello CONNIE! Thanks so much for your help with my doll dresser and those knobs! You had a great idea...

    And what a great hubby you have to let you decorate the castle!


  5. The little bottle rack is sweet !! :)

  6. Hi Connie
    Your hubby is like mine. I have total control over the house. Often he doesn't even notice when I change something and I have to point it out to him. Hope you have fun camping.
    Hugs, Rhondi

  7. Your DH sounds like my DH. He never says anything about how I decorate the house and he never makes any suggestions either. When he does it always floors me because it's always a good idea. :) Looking forward to seeing your finished project and have fun on your camping trip. ~ Lynn

  8. Hi Connie,
