So I had a set of old end tables that I wanted to paint a bright color. I bought a sample of yellow paint at home depot that was paint and primer mixed it was less then 3 dollars. It ended up being more then enough to to two coats on my tables. I think they came out cute and add a nice pop of color to my living room.

We have lived in our new place for about 7 months I have been slowly trying to decorate. Our living room window and patio door had went neglected for a very long time. I really wanted curtain with a bold flower print but I could not find anything in my price range. I decided I would make some. I used just simple quilting cotton and made a few panels and hung them with my shears. I think it came out okay they are not the best work but I do love the color it brings to my living room area.
I am loving the fact that I can easily make my little guy shorts or pants with less then a yard of fabric. The other day I was going though my fabric stash( which is looking bleek) and I found that I had enough flanel left from a blanket I made for the little guy to make some pajama shorts. I think they came out pretty cute and Sam likes them its a win win.

Using a few different tutorial on Made I used the flat front pattern, the pocket pattern and the basic pant pattern. In the end I came up with plaid shorts with pockets for Sammy. I think they came out pretty cute for a first try at shorts and pockets.

So on one of my favorite blogs Made by Rae they just did a week of making boy stuff. At the end of the week there was a giveaway for a pattern called Charlies Tunic and I won. It really made my day I have never won anything on a blog before. I cant wait to make it now.
