Photo Finish Friday

Amazing sky while taking Little Girl to school this week.
Amazing. I haven't been there yet, sigh.

Hilarious up cycle!

Great program! Go Gap!

Cool concept!

Brilliant.

My mom would have loved this.

I'm a big fan.

What are you up to this weekend? I have soccer and volleyball on deck with 2 of my kids. I also meet with my ladies on Sunday. Fun! Teresa

Before + After Cabinet

As I mentioned yesterday, this little cabinet got a makeover. It has been sitting next to the couch in my living room screaming for a new color. Someone gave me the cabinet for free and I love the detail work on it. I was not in love with the "gold" trim and cream color though. I have been trying to figure out for a while what color to paint it. I had finally settled on Annie Sloan Graphite. But, then, one of my friends painted a table in Arles and I thought it was so cute. She even gave me what was left in the can. Score!
 So, here she is in all her Arles and dark wax glory.
 I think she is happy with her new paint job, enjoying her old spot in the living room.

What do you think? Teresa

Workday Wednesday

Whew! Last week sure was crazy. I'm enjoying some catch up time and working on some new projects. This gal is getting a new paint job…
 I finished a wedding hoop, purchased from my etsy shop (special order)…
 And, of course there is always a pile of bags, always…
I'll show the finished cabinet tomorrow. Cheers! Teresa

Events in Nashville

Last week the Nashville Bagettes were very busy! They had 2 events. One at the Nashville Farmers Market Night Market. What a great event…
 They gave out 100 bags!


Then this past Sunday, the Bagettes were at the Music and Molasses Festival that I posted about here.
Look how cute they are! I miss them terribly. If you are in Nashville, I hope you got a bag over the weekend! Thanks to Bagettes Ann and April for the photos. Teresa

So pretty.

Lovely upcycle.

My kids would love these.

To make.

Cute bags. Love that fabric!

Delish.

Why didn't I think of this?

What are you up to this weekend? My sister is visiting from MN and will drive back there with Bagette Dad. Fun! Teresa

This Past Sunday…

We had a great meeting this last Sunday for Green Bag Lady CO. Bagette Dad was visiting and it was nice to include him in the bag making festivities. Bagette Marianne hard at work on handles…
 Bagette Tami and Bagette Dad…
 Bagette Barbara and Bagette Liz…
 And, they insisted that there be a photo of me and all my bag cutting glory…
Thanks for coming everyone. It's great to have Bagette Dad here for the week! Yay! He is taking a bunch of stuff back to MN with him for Green Bag Lady there, finished bags, 1/2 finished bags, fabric, boxes of handles, etc. Teresa

Workday Wednesday

I have been a busy little beaver this week. One of the first things I did was machine maintenance. This was long overdue, especially on this machine. Poor thing. It has been kind of clunking along for a while. No wonder. Lots of dust and needed a good oiling. It now runs like butter…
 Likewise on this serger, really needed a good dust extraction and oiling…
 After that was done, I serged a pile of handles…
 Made some large, sturdy bags for Meals on Wheels in California…
 Finished the wine bags that I talked about last week
And, in helping to kickstart Green Bag Lady MN, I am sending home with Bagette Dad (he is visiting this week) a couple of big stacks of serged bags with handles and a large bag (made from fabric samples) of fabric too…
What are you up to? Do tell. Teresa
