Refashioned Denim Tote Bag

I found a nice strong denim tote bag at a thrift store. It had an unfortunate design on one side that I covered up with a smiley-faced flannel fabric patch.

I added the ribbon, buttons, and flower patch plus I sewed two thrifted belts onto the straps. I may add more to it later.

Skull and Tassel Earrings

I made a pair of earrings recently using some skull beads my boyfriend found and brought home to me, and a cute pair of tassels from St. Vincent de Paul thrift store. They remind me of Autumn, Halloween, and Day of the Dead.

Yesterday I went for a walk with Buddy, our Dachshund, and saw this pretty shrub

and also a great front-yard vegetable garden

I love to see a home where the front lawn has been replaced by ornamental and edible plants!
