Ring, Ring,....

Just a very fast project. I have seen these while surfing around and wanted to make one.
I just sewed buttons  around the little doily to be used as this.

When ever I take Ice water or lemonade hate getting bugs getting in it. I think it will work great. Speaking of bugs I gardened tonight and they are out. I was hoping for a little more time.

I hit the thrift on the way to work this morning and lookeee what I found!
2 sterling silver rings for 5.00 each. I will give my daughter her pick of one.
I am going to spend the next couple of nights getting ready for the hook-in this weekend.
I am working on a chicken rug but when I transferred it from burlap to linen I messed up the border.
I will try to figure it out but first I have to sit on the porch this weather is amazing 80's still a couple of days to go before we get back to reality.
There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is in having lots to do and not doing it.

I have some weighted covers and find them very useful to cover water jugs.
Love the rings - great find.
Looking forward to seeing your chicken rug :o)
Have a great week.

What a great idea...have to go on a doily hunt!

Cool idea about the Ice tea or water cover up. And couldn't agree with you more about having nothing to do. OMG, my problem is I find lots of things I WANT to do but see lots of things I SHOULD do. Now THAT, my dear, is a problem.

But hey, I'd rather be happy doing things I WANT to do.

Cute doilies! I'll have to give it a try!

Isn't this weather insane? I'm not crazy about breaking out the summer clothing so early though! LOL!!!

The rings are gorgeous! I see lots of things I want to do and lots I need to do, but unfortunately, nothing I CAN do

Great idea of putting buttons on the doily to cover the drink pitcher. You'll be ahead of them this year. Those pesky little gnats. Now you have to come up with something to keep the mosquitoes away.

Enjoy this great weather.
Hugs, JB

The weighted doily is lovely. They look nice on sugar bowls too. Neat rings and the price was just right.

Your quote was written about me! Love it. I love the rings too. Nice find as always! I hate the bugs and with our weird warm weather they are already "bugging" me! Have a good weekend!
