My "me" days ...

On Monday, I didn't have a lot of work to do (that NEVER happens) so I left early to just go shopping and spend some time to myself. Being home with the two curly girlies doesn't leave me much time for such luxuries. It was a great day. I ended up staying up late crafting and that was a mistake. Curly 2 ended up waking up at midnight and didn't want to go back to sleep (rare). I decided to take Tuesday off too! I didn't get to sleep in (impossible with all the drama that starts at 5AM daily) but I did get to take my time having coffee, read the paper and later go out to browse the stores.

So after finding instructions online, I made these some simple tassels ...

I got this at a thrift store for $4.

And these ...

The cake plate is so beautiful. It has flowers on the top and the pedestal.

Back to being a mommy. The Happy One needs a nap.


  1. Melanie,

    Where did you find the instructions for these tassels? They are so cute. I can think of a hundred places to hang them.

    I also like your thrifty finds. They are so pretty.


  2. To. Die. For!!! I love those tassels. Amazing job!!!
