Laundry remodel

We finished remodeling the laundry room this last week.
It was ugly.

          Now it is not.

I have been living with this for about 6 years. The floor had that peel and stick tile and while it is great for some purposes, it doesn't always do well on older pier and beam homes. Many cracked, many did not stick and very many stuck too well.

                       My DH is going to build me a screen to hide the water heater.

  This has been the pantry since I was a little girl. Then after we remodeled the kitchen it became the storage    area for small appliances and extra stuff. And the place where my dogs spend the night.

We closed in that area and bought a new cabinet to put my small appliances in the top and all the dog stuff in the bottom.
We are going to reclaim that space in the closet on the other side of that wall.

This is what I am most proud of, my beautiful floor. It looks just like the kitchen and dining room, and someday the living room.( I can't wait!).

Kitchen accessories

My cousin Tammie got married today and of course I waited to the last minute to get her something so I made these kitchen accessories.
I have several of these cup towels you hang on the stove handle and I love them.

I saw some Texas shaped potholders at a gift store the other day and thought I can do that and so I made these

About a year ago I had seen an apron made from blue jeans and have been wanting to make one so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try it out. The picture is not that good, but you get the idea.

Then I found this cute country basket at Hobby Lobby and cute bandana print tissue paper and lined the basket with it.

I got the idea for the  pom pom tissue flowers from .
 She has a good tutorial for making them if you want to pop over to her blog.
