At Home in the Hive

I would like to introduce you to my old pillow shams.
Now that you've met them, let me tell you a little bit about what's going on. Our bedroom is incredibly blah. I love our duvet cover, so I've slowly been making over our room centered on the colors in our duvet cover. As you can see from the above pictures our shams were old, worn out, and totally didn't match. A few weeks ago at the Downeast clearance center I found some hidden gems.

Meet my new (Pottery Barn!!) pillow shams, that I bought for $3 each:They are mismatched in pattern, but the colors are identical.And they match the green in the duvet perfectly. Hooray!This is the reason for the discounted price. One of them had a tear in it about 2 inches long. I guess it's a good thing I can sew, huh.Doesn't that bed look delicious and inviting? I think so.

My other project that I've been working on are these miniature apothecary jars. I found the idea on Blue Cricket, where one of her readers had found it on Shanty2Chic. Thanks to Kendall for the empty baby food jars. Since I don't have a baby to eat the food, she sort of saved my bacon on this one. Anyway, I think they turned out cute and I'm excited to find little sparkly things to put inside them for the holidays.
And the best news about all of these projects? I completed them in one evening while Curious George was out learning to be a good citizen with the scouts. I was quite the busy little bee. Now, I need to go fold the laundry I've been avoiding.

Very cute! I can never seem to find the right project or the motivation to do it. Good for you for getting these done!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who avoids folding laundry. I believe my unfolded laundry has been sitting on my bedroom floor for a week haha.

Those turned out so cute!! I love them. I have so many projects going on. I have the best ideas and never the follow through to see them done.
