Wow, it is sheeeeety out today. Terribly windy, damp and rainy.
A perfect day to caulk the tub (long overdue) and continue my 2009/2010 purge-o-rama. Today will focus on ditching summer footwear. I think it's a shame that I have such excess and others have nothing. It amazes me how much shit I actually have and do not use. I wish I kept count of all the times I have dropped off a garbage bag of stuff at the donation box. Wow.
Last night, I did a little clean-up on my new, cheap vintage wool coat. Fixed a button and repaired the lining...
...I love how different the plaid is from afar compared to seeing it up close...
So, I needed a tea cozy and I think you all know that I love to shop. I do not want to shop for a tea cozy. Don't ask me why, but the thought of searching stores for a bloody tea cozy turns me right off. I do not even hold a diploma for basic sewing 101...I can hardly hem pants, but I decided to give making a tea cozy a go. After a dig around in my fabric scrap box, I found two ends of the legs of a pair of jeans that I made into cut-offs. I found flat cotton batting. I found thread, scrap fabric for 4 ties and some beads for that super chic look. :-)
Yuppers...tea is yummy!
It completely serves its purpose...officially tested this morning. However, hubby thinks its hilarious. Which is why I will continue to use it, along with the anatomically correct female chip and dip I made in pottery class a few years back.
(Actually, have I posted that piece of clay yet? Hmm....)
Hope you're having a kickin' weekend thus far.
