We Can't Wait To Try This

FJS is designing a yoga studio this month. We were browsing the web to find some creative lighting and stumbled across this paper lantern project.
 We found it on Design Sponge.

 It looks pretty easy to create and we will be able to make it as large as we want. Should be just the touch we need to create the perfect zen.

30 years ago

 Yesterday hubby and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. Even back then we were wedding dress was a gunne sax dress I wore in a pageant and for a prom. Mom (FJS #1) and I altered it after we found out that there wasn't enough money in my parent's wedding budget to pay for a wedding dress. Imagine that?! I was devastated when mom broke the news to me, but somehow she found a way to make the best of the situation and the dress turned out beautiful.
That little blondie there on the right is Dixie.
She's wearing a gunne sax dress too. That was a long time ago, 
heck, those dresses are now considered vintage
 and are collected by many.  
Many thanks to my loving hubby for putting up with this "junker" for so long.

Grab these when you see them!

We come across old sewing patterns all the time. There are so many 
creative ways to use them.
They are perfect to use for pom poms or tissue paper flowers.
They make an interesting way to wrap a package.
Here's another way to wrap a plant you are gifting.
 Our favorite reuse for sewing patterns is this chandelier by umbu.
Hey! We've got a  vintage market coming up in
