Crafting Little "Sweets"

A few weeks ago I was taking a simple break from the stresses of housekeeping. BUT as we all know, I can NOT do nothing. I have to keep busy doing something or I'll grow old. ;-) So I took some little styrofoam balls and tied some netting and some pretty fabric around them to froufrou up the cheese and bread I was taking to an open house get together at a friend's house. Easy to do and looked elegant along with the tree topper centerpiece I used on the tray.

Then I went shopping with Love Bunny and bought him a new pink check shirt and 2 new ties. My man is the snappiest dresser in our neighborhood! I told him he can't lose if he lets me select his wardrobe. I love these 2 combinations together. They look really good on him. Girls, dress your man GQ and they'll love ya for it!



  1. Cute Candies Sweet Pea :)

    I STILL haven't mailed your gift yet, My Bad :( Will a hug do for now ?


  2. SWEET Connie!!! You have such a good eye! Rachaelxo

  3. You always come up with the most wonderful ideas. Love the ties and the shirts for your husband...especially the pink!

    Hope you are staying warm!


  4. Cute! I tried something similar for tree ornaments. That netting is slippery stuff to work with! ♥

  5. Great shirts, I agree, he can't go wrong if you are dressing him! I love the little clothespins you made!

  6. Tres chick, and you're quite right re the shirts & ties. Himself always lets me choose as well (very wise, lol)

  7. Oh Connie Sweetie...
    What can I say, I always knew you had good taste? Your man surely looks the best even at church, to heck with the neighborhood.

    I love it when yous hare. You are good!!!

    Have a beautiful day. I am trying to still battle this darn bronchitis so haven't gotten around as much.

    Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

    P.S. I will be checking out my slippers this weekend. Love ya girl!

  8. Love those flashy shirts for love bunny. I've been away for a few days and have missed your pretty pink posts....hope to catch up today!

  9. Hi Connie!
    Very cute! And love the pink!!! (insert cat calls and whistles . . . )
    HAGD! Karen :)

  10. Hello Connie, I have missed visiting your posts. I came home from five days in Atlanta on Sunday night. My cousin Bob, from MI. arrived only a bit later. I have been entertaining him since then. Today my sister took over the job. She is feeding him and entertaining him all day. Hooray, time on the computer. He is a bachelor and in his fifties. A fun guy who loves to play cards. We all enjoy his company very much.

    First I have to tell you I love your pillow mosaic. Girl, you do have beautiful pillows. Mine are pitiful and not worthy of sharing. I am not a pillow person. Egads, a blogger who doesn't care about pillows. HA!

    Your jazzed up package of cheese and bread is so pretty. You do have a talent for such things. I admire you for that talent. I know it was a big hit.

    I do buy most of my hubby's clothes. I love your choices.

    I better get visiting or I will never catch up.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  11. Your husband must look hot! Love the pink!

  12. Hi Connie,
    I have the pillow that I bought from you when I first started blogging and LOVE IT!!! I gave one as a gift and kept one for ME!!
    Love the shirts that you picked out for your hubby!
    Deb :)

  13. You have a good eye for style, Connie. Great combinations. Kathi

  14. Hi, Connie,
    I always enjoy seeing what crafty projects you are up to. Your husband will look very handsome in the shirts and ties you picked out, you did good! Have a lovely rest of the week, sweet friend! Vicki

  15. Well my sweet chick you are absolutely right about dressing our men. I just love it when Punkin goes out and gets the eyes from women. You know THE look. And as for not admitting to "you know what", you are absolutely right again. I AM NOT OLD..I AM NOT OLD...I AM NOT OLD. Love ya girl, Mollye

  16. I just love the ties and shirts you picked out for your hubby!! I enjoy doing that, too. And ya gotta love a man who wears pink!!!

    If I invite you to a dinner party would you make one of those beautiful creations for me?!!? You're the bomb, Connie!!! :)

  17. You did good picking out GQ for him. I love it. You have two toppers from your reception?

  18. hey doll,
    super cute craftiness!
    good looking shirts and ties too.
    happy new year.

  19. I don't think I've seen the polka-dotted one yet on LB... I'll have to keep my eye out.

    Where or should I say how, are you using those clothespins? Did you crack open the modge podge? I might have to give them a try.


  20. I love the shirts Connie, but I'm telling you right now that my cop hubby would never go for pink. I don't think he'd ever be confident calling for back up ever again if he did. LOL Maybe after he retires.

    Did you ever hear of Darlene's NU 2U? That's where I got the old stove door. She had some awesome stuff, but I hear she has closed. I think she still has a booth in the antique world mall though.

    Hugs to you and Love Bunny in his dashing new shirts!

  21. You are the only person I know who could make clothes-pins look fabulous in a picture. You are amazing with that camera of yours,



  22. I am so glad you came by for a visit! It's always nice to meet new people no matter what the hobby!

    Hope you will stop by often for a chat!

  23. Ohh, I love, love that gorgeous pink tie! That fabric is to die for! Love your darling clothes pins too!

    Cathy ♥
