Love is Where You Plant It

Another wall hanging finish featuring a pattern from Shepherd's Bush -- Love is Where You Plant It.

I notice I really tend to get "into" patterns that have a lot of bright and cheery colors, and this one didn't disappoint. With the weather being so cold in Connecticut lately, it was nice to at least stitch something with a garden full of flowers. We've been promised some warmer weather this week, so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed!

Thanks for stopping by!

It's 5 o'Clock Somewhere Hanging Sign

I've been horrible at not keeping up with photos of custom orders which I absolutely hate, so today I'm making sure to post at least one of them! I get requests for this particular finish A LOT which says a lot about everyone's stress level if you ask me!

My favorite part of this design is the small olive which I've been making myself. You can buy the olive specific to this pattern but in my opinion, it's just not worth the cost considering I was able to make a dozen or so myself in less than a half hour. I just got some olive green and red clay, started rolling out some olive shapes, and popped them in the oven. Super easy and costs just pennies -- totally worth the time.
