It's a Girl .. No it's a Boy .... and I WON .. Yep I'm a winner !

~ Welcome Baby ~
What a joy it is to have worked on this sweet Custom Order for a sweet Client of ours.
I must admit .. I love working on custom orders.
It's a nice change to make something a little different and something with a personal sentiment.
This week I worked on a custom Burlap Runner .. for an upcoming Baby Shower.
A way to sweetly welcome a  Baby on the way !

Usually I display our runners on a cute little shabby white table I have ... but this week the clothesline was already in place and I thought it would be fun to show it hung.
We have another gal that buys customized runners in customized sizes and she uses them for window Valances... What a Great Idea ! It's funny because the runners get purchased for a number of uses .. from banners to Pillow Covers on the bed, blanket chest runners, and more.
So I Hung this one up ..and it looks great .. ! I can just imagine this one hung in Babies room above a window or above the crib ! Now wouldn't that be ever so adorable....

I love that they chose the white with yellow gingham ruffles  .. Yellow is a favorite color of mine. I always say "It's a Happy Color" .. and it makes me feel happy and refreshed when I'm in a room of yellow.
In fact Abbey and I have been working in our Kitchen .. 2 weekends back we took all the décor out ..and started over ..we put many things back but just in a new way .. we have an old pair of hanging scales which were over a counter and now are hung in the window that looks out over the backyard ..and our kitchen is now headed for a dressing of yellow gingham. Hopefully this weekend we will get a little time carved out to make some yellow gingham curtains for the window .. such a refreshing, clean and happy feeling they will emanate. I can't wait !
And Yep I won, I can't believe I'm a winner !
I Won the free giveaway a few weeks back at Wayside Treasures !
She was giving away these adorable Frozen food storage boxes "Vintage Cuteness" to the nth degree ! ..
They came this week in the mail .. and Sandi wrapped them so sweetly in Tissue and ribbon and included a sweet card with a recipe on it..
I've been blogging for 4 years now and I can't say I have entered a lot of giveaways but some and this is the first time I have won ... how exciting !
Thanks so much Sandi ... what a pleasure your package was when it arrived this week !

I think I got more done today than I have for awhile though. LOL
