Install Wide Baseboard Molding Over Existing Narrow Baseboard

When I showed you guys my inspiration ideas for redoing the hall bathroom, I showed you this new molding idea.  It is a composite wide molding that is sculpted to fit right over your narrow molding without having to remove it.  You all asked for a review when I got it.

A Giveaway - Some For Me and Some For You

Since some of the parts I need to continue with the bathroom makeover won't be here for a couple of weeks, I switched gears and started going through my fabric stash.  Time to clean it out and either make something or get rid of the fabric.  Seems like I am always buying fabric, so I have made myself a promise to use it up or get rid of it.

With Fall around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to make a few pillows and the fabrics I have are all good for fall decor.  Actually I could use them anytime, but they will be perfect as I transition into fall.

I still love black and white and all of these fabrics are wonderful to mix and match to create a really sharp color scheme.  I had enough to make two pillows of each fabric.

These are pretty orange prints that will be perfect for fall.

I had a couple of browns that I had already made one pillow of each, but sometimes pairs are needed, so I will make one more of each of these.

Now for the giveaway.  I have leftovers that I don't need, so you  guys can have them if you want them.  I am breaking this up into three groups.

1. Black.  These are small pieces - just enough for one pillow each fabric.

2. Orange and Green - there is quite a bit of each one of these - at least 1 to 1 1/2 yds.

3.Pink is so popular now and I have two different patterns of pink
 I started making one of the pillow covers of this gorgeous fabric and then decided that it was't me.  There is enough for 2 pillows front and back with some leftover.  I am also including the pink solid.

 there is also 2 yds of pink and gold zebra velvet and 1 yd of solid pink.

If you would like any of these, just let me know in the comments and which group you would like.  1- 2 - 3  Make sure you leave your contact so I can get your address.  I will pick 3 numbers - 1 for each group from the comments.  
Ok, now to get busy and start sewing.

5 Easy & Inexpensive Ways To Refresh Your Home

Buying furniture and placing it in a room is just the beginning.  It looks great but has no personality.  Creating a "feeling" and "look" that says YOU is sometimes daunting, but it's the accessories and personal touches that really make this your home.  There are some really inexpensive ways to keep your home fresh and on trend that don't break the bank.

1. Flowers have to be one of the most inexpensive "bang for the buck" ideas.  Fresh are wonderful, but if you spend that same $10 at the Dollar Store for some faux's and create a pretty arrangement with them, you can have something that will last for years.  Buy the most realistic ones you can find.
