until I saw something shiny

I was out to conquer the world until I saw something shiny! Such a true statement for me. It all happened by accident; I realized that all my recent junking expeditions, everything was coming up gold. It's perfect for the Christmas holidays.

AH Crafty Challenge – Alter King Pillowcases to Standard

I'm on a bit of a sewing kick, so I'm going to take advantage. Okay, if a "kick" constitutes one slip cover, then yes, I'm on a kick. At estate sales I find some of the most beautiful heavy cotton linens; those heavy cotton pillowcases always feel so crispy cool. I have a few king … Continue reading AH Crafty Challenge – Alter King Pillowcases to Standard
