Five on Friday

Time to join in with Amy and the other bloggers at Love Made My Home for our weekly Five on Friday.  It's been a beautiful week, till some cold air slipped in last night, but never fear, it will be back up in the 70's tomorrow.

My first item is a pillow I made.  At Christmas I saw, and Lord knows where, a pillow with a plaid stag on it, I loved it.  So I ordered a grey pillow cover, bought some plaid material, had Mac trace a stag on the internet, pinned the pattern to my plaid and cut it out, sewed it on my pillow and thought I was through.  Mac looked at it, said it was nice, but that I should have done a bear.  Well I had a small template for a bear, so back upstairs I went, traced the bear onto some card stock, cut out my fabric and sewed it onto the back of the pillow.  Now I'm well and truly done.








My Second is a Fall table topper I started last year and finally finished this week.




My Third is a small wooden heart box that I painted to store my treasures.








My Fourth is a gift from Mac, he went shopping while I was visiting the dermatologist.  He found this tape measure and knew I'd love it.  He said they also had a screwdriver, hammer and pliers to match.  Must have, just don't want anything else burned off to get them.







And my Fifth.  I have to begin by stating categorically that I don't, with 2 exceptions like musicals.  I find them maudlin, melodramatic and usually with mediocre music.  One of my 2 exceptions was on tv last night, GIGI.  My other exception is Camelot (I saw it live in Chicago with Michael York as Arthur) .  I love Gigi, so well cast, beautifully filmed and lovely music.  My two favorite songs are I Remember It Well sung by Hermione Gingold and Maurice Chevalier and The Night They Invented Champagne.  Mac likes this one too and he's even less of a musical fan than I am.







That's my Five, hope you have a great weekend.

  5. The pillow is very cute...on both sides! And so it the table cover. I'm not much into musicals either. Unless you count Dirty Dancing a musical. In which case, I loved. Only because it was romantic and Patrick Swayzee (boohoo) was in it. OK, so that tape measure! L.O.V.E! I love any tools that are pink or flowery. The reason. They NEVER end up missing. I had a hammer and I always had to hunt it up, until I bought a pink one! I like having my own tools. Have a good weekend.

    Bon weekend.

  10. Wonderful makes, I love the Autumn table runner, a real delight. The fabrics were stunning. I am a fan of musicals but that is probably because they bring back so many happy memories of singing along with my girls. Have a wonderful weekend.

  17. Fun! I admire anyone who can make lovely things - I'm hopeless. I must confess to having soft spot for old musicals, despite a long love affair with rock 'n' roll; wonder how 'La La Land' will stand the test of time?!

  18. Floral tools make me smile, I have a hammer with a floral pattern that I love although I seldom have use for it. Your creations are very lovely. I'm not usually the first in line to watch a musical although I admit I do enjoy them.

  19. You have been feeling crafty! I have, too , but I don't have anything to work on and no ideas that I need anything. Working in the yard on this beautiful day . We inherited a yard that once had beautiful plantings but now is overgrown and crowded and I think it will take a couple years to get it back in shape.

  24. I love musicals and have lots of happy memories of watching them with my dad. He liked Gene Kelly and we would watch something on TV every week, singing along.

    I like your pillows. Very Scandi!

What's Cooking?

The kitchen smells heavenly.  I made vegetable beef soup, think it's the first time I've done that.  It's for lunch tomorrow and...
