some THINGS I'm enjoying today

BaSkEt LiNeR

I love baskets and I adore the way they look lined.  So I decided to try to make my own for this cute little basket I purchased the other day.  It is far from perfect but I am liking the way it came out.  Doesn't is look purrrrrty with my nectarines inside ;)   

SkIrT

My dining room chairs  have been needing a make over for quite some time now but I just didn't have the courage to do it.  I didn't want to juts upholster the entire chair.
I was looking  to make cute skirts for them but didn't really know how to start.  So I decided to try making one for a toddler chair before I would tackle the real thing.  I used some muslin and added piping and finished it with ribbon to tie bows.  It's not perfect and it's my first time using piping but I definitely love the way it looks.  It also gave me the courage I needed to try it on my dining room chairs.

BUTTONS

Can you believe I bought this large bucket of buttons for 2,00euros!!!  I was so excited when she told me the price that I didn't even bargain (which is a very rare thing for me).   I just need to find a fabulous glass jar to display them.  I love looking at them ;)
