I just love this granite top. Don't you. It's blueish green. Well, once again, construction supplies are piled ontop of my crates of holiday decorations. Sooooooo, I am decorating with candy. Heye, its cheap, looks good in my vintage green bowls, and everyone loves it. I had bought some little dolls to send in with smiles, but I grabbed the little pumpkin girl, isn't she the cutest. She is from our fun garage sale day. The green bowl is ontop of my red granite cutting board, it is huge, and I can't move it around, so I have it ontop of the dog cage, it makes a great table. It was my Christmas gift one year from Scott and Tiffany.
Here's the fabric selection for the turtle shell. I can't decide which one to make. What do you think would be the best choice.

We went to a 85 booth indoor gargae sale. It was fun, lots of cheap junk, comfortable air conditioning, and this cute little turtle footstool. I was going to make him a patchwork shell, and hammer it on with little tacks. My daughters think it would be kool to make the shells as little pillows and put them on with velcro, so the grandkids could dress Mr. Turtle. Turtle shells to follow....... like I needed a new project.

Our new bath towels, isn't the color just yummy. I love the icey greens that are out this summer.
Wow, look what I found when I was cleaning, 54 eco bags for the Smiles Project. These are made from Sewing for Sarah Designs. Love her projects. So these are packed, ready to go to the post office. Glad I found these. We are getting ready for our Christmas mailings so every bit helps. All you stash busters, the Smiles Project is a great way to use up all your unwanted fabric. hint, hing.

Smiles ready for mailing

Here's a bunch of airplanes for SmilesProject.com. Thanks for the design, it is the cutest. These are pencil toppers as little treats for the kiddo's getting the wonderful little bags.
This is made from Altoids cans. You embroidery the little label, and glue it on top. Then I get to fill the little box with junk.
Well this is what a pile of goodies ready to go to SmileProject looks like. I had lots of fun filling the bags. Can you see the cute carnival toys that hubbies work donated to the project. There is plastic rings, and the bright little cirles are tiny frizbees. Oh, and little plastic spider rings.
