Wanted...one "she shed"

I have wanted a "she shed" for years...but I wasn't willing to give up on my garden space.
But truth be told, over the last few years I have been limited in what I can grow in the space due the trees next door and our own jacaranda.
Well, the space has gotten so overgrown and shabby, not at all appealing....and its fall, so its a good time to clean up and clear out!
I have been looking at Pinterest for ideas...and I measured...once.
We have a friend that is a contractor, so we think we will hire him to build it, we just need a design.
 This is a very basic design...almost too basic....
 This style keeps catching my eye....I think the shed must have french doors!
This is cute, I like the symmetry, but again, I have my heart set on french doors.....
I would just love to have a she shed like Joanna Gaines' shed!! Perfect!
Isn't this adorable?? French door cozy perfection. Of course, this is bigger than my space will allow, and I wouldn't be able to have a fireplace either....but this is darling!

The interior will be just as important. It will house the potting table, and tools....but must be cozy and perhaps have a couch or daybed or some such. It must have windows... and I love the ceiling in this one....
At this point...it is in the planning stages....so we will see.....
Isn't that what dreams are all about??
We will see....first off, we must clear and remove all the plants and level the area....whether there is a future shed there or not, the area has just gotten "gross"....ugh.
Do any of you have sheds?? I would love to see them!
Yours, Nancy

Almost Good As New

If you have been reading the blog, you know what happens when you spray Lysol on Oil Rubbed Bronze door handles. Yeah, not pretty. And, a very expensive mistake...or at least it can be.
Behold....(as a reminder)

It basically just takes the finish off!
So, I asked you readers what I should use to fix it, not wanting of course to take the set off and take it to a refinisher who would charge upwards of $300 to fix it.....
So, One wonderful reader mentioned, Rub n Buff.....
That was an "Ah ha" moment.....
Except that around here, Rub n Buff seems to only come in gold, brass and patina....not what I was looking for.......
So, I went online and happily I found, Rub n Buff comes in a multitude of colors! Now, they don't have Oil Rubbed Bronze (that's too easy), but they had Ebony (black) which most closely resembles our Bronze color, as it is the darker one.....
So, I experimented on an inside door handle that was very brassy....
And although I am not going to show you the …

A Little bit of This and That

I need to sew, something everyday, or I get grumpy!
Today, it was a pillow....ah.....
I found a cross stitch panel that someone had done, and fell in love with it. It's actually a covered bridge, but it looks kinda like a barn...so I took it home, no idea at all what to do with it.
Today, it hit me....a pillow!
When I went to the closet, I found a pillow form....sweet!!
The panel was almost the right size, at least width wise....height wise it was a tad short. I measured and sure enough it was almost 5" different...so, I went to the closet again and found 2 1/2' strips from another project...perfect! So, I used those on each end....
So what about a backing....hummmm. I love linen. The family room, where this may end up is being painted a taupe grey....so into my drawer where linen lives, and there was a remnant from another project...grey linen....
So, long story short....I literally just stitched it together....and made it an envelope closure...that I stitched closed wit…

Christmas present and quilting

For my Christmas present, I wanted an Accuquilt Go, so Hubby got me one. And, since my birthday is on the heels of Christmas (Jan. 3), I asked for more Accuquilt die cutters. hummmmmmm
For those of you not familiar with what it is, it is a die cutter for fabric. It makes perfect cuts! Therefore, when you start quilting, you start with a square that is really square!It makes piecing a joy and much faster. You can cut several (up to 6 or 8 layers) at a time. For serious quilters or even beginners, it can be addictive. Imagine perfect applique figures or perfect shape pieces for piecing....yeah...addictive.
My darling husband and daughters got together on their planning and bought me so many dies that I should be busy for the next 20 years!

Here is a picture of me playing with scraps and cutting up fabric using the original die cutter it came with.....
All through Christmas time, I was wanting a red and white quilt to be able to throw over the couch in the livingroom, for that festive sp…
