Yesterday I was browsing the internet while nursing Sammi* and I saw this post . Which kind of made me crazy with all of it's wonderfulness. You'll be seeing at least two ideas I got from that post in my house soon. I already started another project from there this afternoon.

It led me to this post which made me all kinds of crazy too. I NEEDED that handkerchief decal and I needed it NOW.

So then I found this post and 20 minutes later I had this:

One vintage hanky + a bit of embroidery floss + a piece of steam a seam II (which I always keep on hand, you should too!) and the iron and voila!

My own hanky decal.

* I spend a lot of time browsing design blogs and watching the Nate Show in this chair right now. It has SERIOUSLY reignited my love affair with the new house. I want to make over everything. I want to fluff everything. I want to sew. I want to design. I love my house.


  1. Oh wow! I LOVE those yellow doors in the first post you sent us to. And the yellow quilt. I soooo need some sunshine!

    I wonder if Heat n Bond would work for the wall decals...? Hmmm. I love your handkerchief picture. I think putting in a frame is better than right on the wall. Then you can move it where and when you want.

    Thanks for the tips!

  2. That is fantastic. You are brilliant, and I am very impressed at everything you get done. I can't even tell you the last time I made something that wasn't food for a toddler. :)


Hi there. What say you?
