Decorating.... Sometimes it's like a rash.....

Maybe it's just me, but sometimes I just get the "itch" to change things up.  It starts out as something simple, but then the more you touch it, the the more it spreads.

Kinda' like a rash....

The other day I decided to re-arrange the stuff on my Hoosier cabinet.  I pulled out all of my favorite serving pieces that I like to use every day, and just started to play around.  I wanted to put out some of my silver plate pieces, so I grabbed one of my soap dishes to hold them and they fit just right!

But then I needed something else.... a runner or something to put everything on.  Out came the sewing machine and I whipped up this runner with left over drop cloth and a one of my napkins (love this Waverly print, but can't seem to find the fabric on-line... if you've seen it, please share!) for the ruffle.

Once that was down, I didn't like the look of all of my cookbooks hanging out.  Back to the sewing machine.... and I whipped up this little curtain in matching fabric ( from 2 napkins sewn together).  Much better...

But then I realized I didn't have a tension rod small enough to fit... so I pulled one apart and cut it to length.  The little rubber feet are holding it in place.

The little "milk bottle" is actually a re-cycled Starbucks coffee drink bottle that I spray painted white, and created a milk label for.  It's one of a set of three I made, and is just right for holding small bouquets of flowers...

I'm much happier now.... but nothing is ever a "one-step" process for me.  I guess that's why when my man asks me "what did you do today?".... my answer of "re-arranged the Hoosier cabinet " gets me that "and.....???" look!

At least he doesn't verbalize the "what else?" part!  The look says it all!!
