Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things Party

Happy Thursday friends. I have a heavy heart this week. I lost my dachshund Caleigh early Monday morning. It was so sudden. One minute she was sitting and the next she was having a hard time breathing. We rushed her to the emergency vet. They put her on oxygen but it did little good. 

Xrays showed that her heart was enlarged and cancer in her lungs. They think she had a massive heart attack. There was nothing we could do. We also have Louie who is her baby. He is so lost without her. They have been together every day for over 9 years. Caleigh is on the left and Louie on the right. This was a trip to the Dairy Queen with Daddy a few weeks ago.

We are just heart broken. She was only 12 and too soon to loose her. Any one who has lost a beloved pet knows the feeling.

This week I pick some 4th of July crafts, decor and recipes. Enjoy!

4th of July Pallet Blocks

4th of July Blocks

I started to decorate with holiday items for Memorial Weekend. I made some stars and flags for a centerpiece. You can see those here

I decided to add to my collection by making some wooden blocks.  I made one blue with a star and 2 with red stripes. (they look on the pink side but are really red)

4th of July Blocks. Share NOW. #4thof July. #holidaydecor #patrioticdecor #craft #eclecticredbarn #palletboarddecor

These were easy to make. I used pallet boards to make mine. You can use any scrap of wood since they are not very large. 

I used one board cut from a pallet to cut all three of my blocks. 


How to make 4th of July blocks:
pallet board
paint
painters tape
washers
twine

1. Pallet boards are the right size.  You can use any board you have and make them whatever size you want, but mine are 3 1/2  X 5. Cut 3 pieces

2. I cut the corners off of each piece at one end. I cut them at 45 degrees. Sand lightly.

3. I painted one of the blocks blue and then used some sand paper to rough it up. I painted both sides.

4. I cut a star out of card stock paper and then traced it on the blue block. I painted the star white. 

5. For the red stripe ones, I painted the blocks white on both side. Once dried, I taped of some stripes and then painted them red. Once they were dried and the tape was removed, I sand the blocks a little.

6. I drilled a hole near the top so I could add twine. I found these rusted washers so I glued them to one side. (I did not put them on both sides)

They were easy to make and make a great addition to my 4th f July decorations.

Happy Thursday friends. I am heading back home today. I had a wonderful visit with my Mom. It is always difficult to leave her. I wish I could bring her to live with me, but she wants to stay in PA. 

I also enjoyed spending time with my baby sister. We shopped a little. I found a couple of great purses at the City Mission. You can never have too many, especially when they are brand names and practically new. 

I hope all is well with you and that your week has been great.

Welcome to You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Happy Monday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine has been so nice here with my Mom. The weather has been awesome. So cool compared to Florida.

I hope you have a great week ahead.

Garland of Flowers

Garland of Flowers

With summer arriving in a few weeks, I thought I would decorate with flowers, but not the real kind. Instead, I created some fabric flowers that I saw on Pinterest. 

Garland of flowers. Share NOW. #garland, #flowers, #fabricflowers, #crafting, #eclecticredbarn

First I had to make a pattern. I played with it a few times before I liked one. They were easy to do and a  great way to use up scrap fabric. 

Garland of flowers. Share NOW. #garland, #flowers, #fabricflowers, #crafting, #eclecticredbarn

I got a little carried away making them so I also added them to the fireplace as well. I still have some stars and stripes items on the mantel. 4th of July is coming so I left them up after Memorial Day.

Here is what you will need:

scrap fabric
scissors
pattern (download it here)
buttons
poly-fil
Pinking shears)optional)

Directions:
1. Download the pattern here. Cut it out and then place it on two pieces of fabric. 

2. Cut out the flower. You can use pinking shears now or after you have sewn  your flower together. I have done both ways, although I prefer to do it after I have stitched around the edges. 

3. This next step can be done by hand or using a sewing machine. Stitch around the edges of the flower but make sure to leave an opening to stuff in the poly-fil.  I leave one petal open for stuffing.

4. When stuffing the flower, make sure to add stuffing to one petal at a time. I like to use a wooden chop stick, small scissors, or what ever you have to push the stuffing into the petals. I like to make mine fairly tight but still be able to add a button in the center. I usually sew up the last petal by hand. I do a section and then stuff more if need be and continue to sew it up.

5. I used vintage buttons on mine, but use what ever you have. I made a few without buttons, so do what you like. I sew the button on going through to the back of the flower. You could put a button on both sides if you wanted.

And there you have it. I used small clothes pins from the dollar store to hang them up.
