Fabric hot mat

 I made myself a fabric hot mat this 
weekend from my recent blog post:
 buy enough rope for a bowl so ended up
 making the hot mat.  This project was so fun! I would recommend it to everyone, and it didn't take very long, maybe an hour. 

What did you do this weekend?

Fresh kitchen

I spoiled myself to some new
 kitchen linens. It was pretty hard to find 
the right colours, but this is what I got from 
a company called "now designs".   
I'm actually quite happy with it,
 it look's pretty cute once everything's in it's place!

Another project I need to do!

what a fun and crafty way to use it up.

Just my luck

My new globe that I found at a local thrift store for $2.50! 
The crazy thing is, I went into the store looking for one, thinking there would be no way one would actually be there. I browsed through the whole store finding other things, and when I was walking up to pay it was sitting on a table by the cashier!  
Good luck for me :)

Tree Island

We spent yet another weekend out at Tree Island. The weather was SO hot, and it was gorgeous out. We got home around 8 last night, and when I woke up this morning it's now grey and raining! crazy how the weather can change so fast! I'm so happy we got to enjoy the beach on last time. 
What did you do over the weekend!?
