An unmade bed

Something struck me about Lily's unmade bed.  Blankets flipped back, revealing a lovely warmth of a slumber recently ended.  Those retro rummaged second-hand matching sheet and pillow case!  The recycled hot water bottle cover (with her own design on).  Those hand-made socks which will, no doubt, too soon be outgrown.  This little domestic vignette, captured in time, made my heart skip a beat:

  1. I am glad to hear the sense of pride you take in being domestic and thrifty. I love to compare the amount of money I spent on an outfit (thrifted or homemade) with a friend who shops at the buckle. There has been over $100 difference at times. Making something out of nothing and passing that on to our kids is one of the greatest skills to teach them. I really enjoy your blog! Keep up the good work.

    1. I am so pleased that you enjoy reading my blog. It's great when you can make something on a shoestring which looks just as good as an expensively designed item. I will be posting a recycled bunting tutorial in the next week or so, which was made from scraps I found around the home.
