The 7 Day Decorating Challange

I am following Anna's plan,I will stick to her rules and see what I can do this week. Most importantly it must be free and it must make me smile.

Today I started with the dining room, I moved the buffet back into the dining room, to make room for my birthday gift(you will have to wait to find out what it is). I also hung my grandmothers tea cups and a cross-stitch picture she made. I really missed having the buffet in the dining room. So that makes me happy.

I was wanting some fall butterflies for my dining room table, so I made some, that makes me smile.
I placed some rum balls on the table for a special treat. They were left from Christmas, but were still good. LOL If I had only waited I could have used them this year. (not really)

In the sewing room

I needed some new hot pads and had not been able to find any that I liked. Then I found this really fun fabric (very bright and vintage looking). So I knew this would be my new hot pads. I used Anna's tutorial from Pleasant View Schoolhouse. All finished and ready to be used.
Audrey whipped up a new cover for the hot water bottle. It has been getting used, very comforting when your not feeling so well.

Blessings to all
