I'm oN A Roll

Just so you know, I wake every morning inspired, what to do next? I am a ball of energy.  Some of you gals asked when do I sleep.  Well I have to tell you I get my solid 7-8 hours a night, and wake up refreshed and raring to go.  I now look around the house.  As I do not want to go out and spend money that I do not need to.  So today I decided I would redo  a little white shade I had tucked away in my closet I already had my supplies on hand. Just took a minute to figure out what I wanted and here it is
Can someone say BORING?????
Can someone say CUTE???? I love poppies this season, and just cut a flower off one I have, and hot glued it to the ribbon...easy peasy!

Ahhhhhh....that was fun~!
Made the cute little tea towel with fabric I had left over from making my table runner

As you can see I put the lemons back on the table....and my husband pointed out to me, that my new color scheme this week is the Howard Johnson Colors....leave it to Mike to make that observation!
Linking up to some of my favorite parties this week.  Thanks for hosting!

I love how the poppy you put on the lampshade goes so well with your poppy picture above it! Great and simple idea to dress up a lampshade. I'm trying not to spend either; I have at least 3 projects sitting waiting so I will have to breakdown and get some more black spray paint.

Hi Debbie, You're like the "energizer bunny" you keep going...going... and you always come up with wonderful creative designs. Thank you for visiting and leaving your comment on my Thrifty "RED" finds, I flipped my "LID". I loved getting that pretty oven set for $3.99 what a deal! Have a great week. I was happy I was able to link up this week. Now that you got me thrifting, I'm hooked...but I did pop into Home Goods today, cuz I knew they were suspicous that I haven't been around...don't want them to know I'm cheating on them. Your secret is safe with me...I'm not telling and you're not all is good!
