New Tassels & A Giveaway Winner

Pin It Now!

I added a couple new tassels to my etsy shop this week. The top one is a pink and blue with really pretty blue/cream toile ribbon.
I also have a new brown and green bird tassel for sale. Just click here to visit my etsy shop.

The winner of the birdcage tealight holders is....
Susan~The Little Yellow House!  Thanks to everyone that entered!  I'll be doing another giveaway at the end of the month.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! It's supposed to be hot here, in the 90s. I prefer the 70s and 80s but I guess I should be happy to have nice weather even if it is too hot! I made drapes for my living room about a month ago and I still need to hem them so that's one project I'll be working on this weekend! I also need to clean out every closet in my apartment! You would be shocked to see what a mess they are!


Susan said...

Hugs, Susan

Congratulations, Susan!


I'm in the middle of doing a massive clean-out at home, and have to say it's very liberating! Once you get started, you won't regret it. I just wish I had done it a long time ago.

Have you looked for an air conditioner yet?!? ☺ Diane

Glenda said...

Oh, you busy bee, you have had a lot to do.

One way to save $$ by doing your own handy work.

I've got to plant my roses before it gets to hot here.


Karin said...

I hope I'm as motivated as you are at tackling some closets this weekend too! Spring brings out the nesting instinct in us:)

Have a great weekend!

Karin said...

Cindy, I almost forgot ~ you made me laugh when I spotted you taking the picture for yesterday's post through the window from the outside:) Great post!
You're so funny!


Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Karin, haha..that was the only way I could get a picture! That bathroom is so tiny! I put the camera on the window ledge and then ducked my head down so I would be in the photo!

I notice from your profile that we are the same're a Virgo so you must be less than a month older than me!

Congratulations to Susan! I'm sure she'll enjoy them very much. I just saw the bathroom face lift and it's so "you". Love it!
I so feel your "heat". We're projected to hit the mid to high 90s, which means 2we'll hit 100 here in my valley. yikes! I'm not ready for the summer, I'm just not! lol!
Enjoy your weekend!

Charlene said...

Usually I am very tidy!!! I don't know what has happened the last couple of months. The house is clean but my work areas are disasters! I have STUFF everywhere. I don't seem able to finish anything, just start something else... this has got to stop!!!! Glad to see I have friends that have some unfinised things too. And closets to clean. Oh my... shopping is more fun. Love the brown & green tassle.

sarah said...

G'day Cindy

p.s. I'm having another giveaway today which you might like :-)

Melissa said...

I love the one with the bird! How unique! And the colours are so fresh!

RobinfromCA said...

Did you get all your projects done in this insane heat? I'm very impressed if you did because heat makes me grumpy and lazy. Thank goodness for AC!! We went to an outdoor wedding reception here in Cupertino yesterday and nearly melted!

Now that the sun is down I'll go out and water the sad, droopy little flowers in my yard.

Have a good one!
