I started making fairy clotheslines when I put in my fairy garden.  Mine was more like a gnome homestead complete with a pickup truck, windmill and cow.  I decided they needed a clothesline. 



   My original clothesline had blue jeans, a signature "hanky" apron and a pa...

   I've been meaning to post the saga of my Hoosier Cabinet refinishing project for some time and hadn't gotten around to it (mainly because of the darn cancer thing). 

   Hoosier cabinets have been something I've admired for years, but I've never had a place for one in any house that I've had.  I believe you would have to build your kitchen to specifically include one of these cabinets.  Most are at least four fee...

Yarn Bombing a Foot Stool

   I never know what to knit this time of year.  After all, hand-knits aren't too popular during the summer months.  I wouldn't want a scarf wrapped around my neck when it's ninety degrees outside.  It's also a little early to be working on items for next winter (not that this one is over with yet!).

   I have an ugly, vinyl, $1 at an auction foot stool in the TV room.  This is the room that I'm sent to when I want to watch Dancing With the Stars ...
