I'm Still Here & A Weekend Project!

*

*
Hello my friends...I hope you're having a fabulous Friday!
*
Whew...I know that I've been MIA this past week but there has been alot going on at my place! Honey has been home on vacation and we've been busy with a few projects around the house that we've been wanting to do. I haven't been at the computer much this week and I was afraid that ya'll may have forgotten me! Hehe! Soooo...I thought I would just do a quick post about a project that I have planned for this weekend.
*
My "Mystery" Project...

*
Yes...it's all a bit of a "mystery" at this point! I do hope that I can get this little project completed this weekend so that I can post about it next week.
*
Until then...can you guess what I am up to? Hehe! I'll give you a couple of hints...it involves fabric and decorating!
*

*
The "mystery" project involves a couple of inexpensive sheet sets from Walmart!
*
I purchased two sets of sheets that are color coordinated. The photo above shows one set that is done in a pretty sage green and blue floral pattern. The photo below shows the second set that is done in a sage green and blue paisley with a little yellow thrown into the mix! I just love the "cottage" feel you can get when mixing different floral patterns. It's a look that can be easily done when using the same colors.
*
Ohhh...and I'm loving this sage green and blue color...sooo summery!!!
*

*

*
Ohhh boy...I do have a mess in my dining room right now...but I needed my big table to spread all the fabric out. Hehe!
*
Well my friends, I just wanted to stop in and say hello! I really am still here...just been a bit preocupied this week! Cross your fingers for me...that I can get this project completed this weekend! Hopefully I will be posting about the results next week!
*
I'm trying to get a few things "spruced up" here at my place...because...we are having very special visitors in a couple of weeks! Yes...I am soooo excited!!! A very close friend is coming for a visit...and I bet you know her! Cindy from Applestone Cottage and her husband Dan are coming all the way from Wisconsin to Colorado for a visit!!! Ohhh... what fun Cindy and I will have! We have been friends for two years now...and we are finally going to get to meet "face to face"...for the first time! I just love this sweet lady to pieces! Ohhh my...I better get off of the computer and get busy...hehe!!!
*
Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Okay, are you making fabric covered boxes??? That one piece looks like it could cover a box. Are you doing that and coordinating the fabric on them to match your study or something? That's my guess.

XO,

Summer is HERE! Did you have 100 degrees this past week? I was melting, as I haven't had my nephew put in the AC yet. Didn't think I needed it yet! Wrong!

Hope you get your project completed, as I'll be checking back to see it. Have a great visit. ♥♫
