I Love Polka Dots & Sewing pillows & Thrift Store finds

Don't you just love Polka Dots?
and red.. the absolute best color!!
Cindy bought me this baking dish and big bowl[cup]
for Christmas. I love them.. Too pretty to put away
in the cabinet.[smile]

Unusual  white ceramic canister , I found at the
thrift store - $2.99


When there is no time to sew.. Just embroider
your initial on fabric and make a pillow. Fun.
I was testing a monogram on my embroidery
machine, so  I used a color that Cindy has
in her sun room, and made her a quick sew/
easy sew pillow.

Cindy and I both have the last name start with an R..

Hope your having a good start to your new year.
Getting sewing or  organizing done.. And enjoying
the day..

  8. Polka dots are fun! I remember my mother had a teaset with polka dots, when I was a child.

    Love the canister, too - it looks so elegant. And with the red/white theme between the polka dots items, the white canister and red candle, you are ready to decorate for St. Valentine's day with minimal effort!
