What a Relief....

I finally created something....I can't believe I haven't posted anything since mother day. I just have been going thru a dry spell. Not working on anything exciting. Until yesterday. It was my day off and I was determined to do something. So I got out my thrift store find(of a few months ago) hehe. It was a 5 yard piece for 5.oo. It is hard to tell but the background is a light yellow.
I decided to make cushions for my porch swing.

These are the cushions that I got at a garage sale a few years ago.

Here is the finish. I like the way they turned out. Not sure how long they will stay pretty. There is now cover or roof and I can't wait for the dogs to find them.

The blue fabric was also a thrift store find. Three yards for 3.00. The swing was on the curb and we brought it home and painted it. I made pillows for the swing and cushions for the wicker thrift store chairs. The set of chairs were 5.00. I just love this thrift store. I hope you have been creative. It sure makes you feel good....doesn't it?

Next on the to do list...on a sunny day....is to paint the shutters. I founds a nice brown that I think will look nice. Til next time. Have fun and enjoy the things that make you smile. Lisa


  1. Wonderful job Lisa!! Love how cheery the fabric is. Looks really pretty.
    I'm hoping to update my blog by the end of the week or beginning of next. Working outside today and out of town tomorrow. I finished hooking my horse rug and want to share it with everyone. Keep yourself busy!! And have fun painting those shutters..

  2. The cushions look so pretty. They look great against the black swing. Well done.

  3. You would never know that you got all that stuff at the thrift store. Isn't it amazing at how we can refurbish old things to make them new. They are so pretty.

    SO GOOD to hear from you. Your projects came out just great!
    Isn't is nice that it has stopped raining for a few day? I just hope we don't go immediately to drought!
    Hugs :)

  5. Those look wonderful, Lisa! I agree with Kathy~ they are so cheery!


I'm glad you came for a visit. I hope you will leave a comment. I love to hear from you.
