I just got home from a Starbucks run after a looooooong day and I'm finally feeling amazingly rejuvenated enough (and hopped up on caffeine) to sit down and blog. It is a very busy and exciting week over here at the Schutz house. It's my birthday week!!! Wooo whooo! It is also the first week of my Hub's new work schedule and Christmas project deadlines, so I am going a little nutcracker over here. I am not complaining, truly I am loving every busy minute of it.Recently, when I was at Goodwill, I stumbled across some amazing sweaters in the colors that I wanted to decorate with for Christmas, so I scooped them up for super cheap and haven't looked back. When I got home with all these lovely ladies I wasn't quite sure as to what I was going to do with them...
...so I made winter holiday pillows. I think this is a great use for older sweaters that are just steps away from relocating to the wool graveyard and even if they're not fashion friendly anymore, they might just make a cheerful pillow.
These pillows are actually sitting on my dining room chairs that I pushed together to look like an upholstered bench. They are a small detail in the overall dining room holiday scheme. Operation Christmas table has been completed and debuts tomorrow! I hope that some of my ideas will come in handy to all of you.
Here is another little sneak peak of our table, but check back tomorrow for the entire reveal.
yep....that's another yarn ball garland you're seeing. I feel incomplete without one. I have actually had quite a few of you emailing about me making and selling these. I was wondering how many of you would be interested if I were to open up an Etsy shop? Feel free to holla' at me with your input. I hope you guys have a great Tuesday and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
