Things I have made

OK I didn't make the baby quilt that is on this table. I just bought it at a thrift store. Now the question is do I sell it and make a few dollars or keep it and use it on a table? It looks very cute on a table over another table cloth.
This you see in all the magazines. It was Sat. before Easter and I was walking the dog by the burn pile and I spied a broken rake. Instant glass holder for the porch. It is on a peg rack I have there. It was perfect for the mimosa's I served on the porch Easter.
I found this crochet edging at an antique shop for $7.00 I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but I loved it. And then I had a great idea. I sewed it to the edge of some new sheets I just bought. The bed is a king size and I had a small piece left over. I love the vintage look but I do have to iron the edge before it goes on the bed.(I always iron the pillow cases with rose linen spray heavenly)

Now the bed. My husband and I traded up from a queen to a king and priced head boards yikes!
So we took an old panel door laid it sideways. The top arch is from a door we had on our house at one time. the columns are ones that a whole one was cut in half. We screwed it all to the wall and painted it white. The hanging glass lights are from 2 different yard sales and the black shades are from a yard sale. I believe total it was under $50.00

That is one great head board. Great Job.
The lace you found was wonderful, such a lot for seven dollars.
I love the glass holder also.
The baby quilt is pretty, I'd be afraid I'd spill something on it. But you might as well enjoy it.

Good post

Keep the quilt! And what is that Cola cooler? Love it! Pottery Barn has a retro-inspired on in their new catalog for $700. Ouch!
