When the time comes to take down the Christmas ornaments, I always think of what I can do to keep that feeling we have when we put them up – a feeling of expectation. This isn’t always easy to do. Here in the Midwest January can be very dreary with grey days and not much sun. So, I come up with ideas to give my home a different look. One of the ways I do this is by using my wedding dress pillows to transform a bedroom. I can take away the Christmas candles and trees and add touches of greenery and/or flowers. How fun to walk into your bedroom and see not only your pillows but also a pick me up for dreary days.
Tee Shirt Quilts
At one time I thought that you needed to be a certain age before you felt nostalgic. However, I have learned that it isn’t about age at all but rather about personalities. Tee shirt quilts such as this one that I just completed are popular with every age. This quilt represents a college career. It shows tee shirts from all aspects of college life from academics to extracurricular activities to sports. Now, each time the quilt is used, college memories will college memories will be there.
