My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

There are times when I don't have a lot to say. Marvelous, isn't it?! Anyway, today I thought I'd just share a thing or two and get back to the house work and garden and let you enjoy NOT listening to me so much!

Looking through some clothing catalogs recently I realized the T-shirt is now becoming somewhat dressed and jazzed up a bit. So I took this plain black one and added some black with roses fabric I ruffled and sewed it on. Has anyone else noticed the T's are not so drab and plain anymore? Some have lace and are pleated in front. Just a whole different look. So for me instead of buying a lot of new ones I'm just froufrou-ing up the old ones.

Aren't these decals lovely? I saw them and couldn't resist but now I'm deciding where to put them. They are 7 1/4" x 4 1/2". So where could they go nicely? Any suggestions?


  1. Hi Connie,

    The black top came out so lovely. What a great idea. (One more fabulous idead to add to my to-do list)!

    The decals are really pretty! There are so many different ways to use them. Wish I had a good suggestion. Just wait a bit and the perfect spot will reveal itself to you.


  2. Hi Connieness! Oh, you're just the smartest one! I like that little detail of the pretty print all frilly and ruffly on your t-shirt! I've needed to go shop for some summer clothes and am just not liking the styles out there! The clothes remind me of what I wore in the 1970s! They say styles seem to turn around and come back! LOL
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,

  3. Since t-shirts are pretty much my "mom" uniform, I'm glad to see that they're getting a little more spiffy. That way I don't have to feel so much like a slob all the time! lol


  4. You are right they are getting spiffied up. Of course yours must have pink roses. That's a neat idea. I think the decals look better on the back. No ups and downs back there and they show better.

  5. Great t-shirt re-do! Have you tried beading any yet? It seems the beading is quite popular.

    I need to re-invent some of mine... great idea! ☺ Diane

  6. Cute t-shirt! I love anything black, and with roses to boot!


  7. hey Connie; I love your idea about the tee shirts, I might have to try it out. Love your decals, wish i could help you with what to do with them, but my mind is blank tonight. lol; I am sure you will find an amazing way to use them you are a very creative lady.....
