{ Work & Some Cute Retail Therapy }

Phew! I feel like I have been running a race the past couple days. I have been super busy filling Pressed Peony orders & getting everything ready to be shipped.
So, a few things have been put on the back burner such as this trim that is supposed to get sewn on my curtains.
So here they sit looking like this
But the hubby sure did a good job on the window boxes. I so my handy man.
The after my friend called me (you enabler you) I purchased these stinking cute shoes, they are Puddle Jumpers and I paid $10 a pair.
Cute and a bargain, I couldn't resist! They still have some on sale I do suggest you go and take a peek. See now I'm enabling you it's a never ending cycle. :)
And the same friend told me about these boots. 
Again with the enabling!?!? :) 
But I'm a sucker for shoes as any good woman should be, so I bought these as well. They were at our local Bi-Mart store on clearance! 
Addison will get to wear them someday....
I mean come on even the backs are C.U.T.E.!!
And I will be MIA for a little bit, as I have to fill 7 of these stitchery orders all by the end of the month (thanks Joyce for plugging my Etsy store you rock)
Plus I have some Pressed Peony headband orders that are in the works as well.
So if you need me, I'll be sitting on my butt in my rocking chair stitching and cutting out flowers till my eyeballs fall out or my fingers fall off which ever comes first.
I'm turning into my very own personal sweat shop!
But seriously it's all so very good!
Well, off I go I need to get back to work!
Have a great weekend.

  22. Hi I loved your great window boxes and those flowers are great too. Do you have instructions on how you did those window boxes or could you give me instructions on how to make them. They looked so great. I might have to make some for me or have a handyman help out.
    You are so talented.

  23. Window cornice looks AWESOME! Curtains too. I might have to make my hubby take a peak. He's not exactly the handiest, but I think MAYBE he could manage. Nothing like a little miter saw action to make the Mr. feel manly & useful, right? :)

    Those shoes are way CUTE!

  24. Your window boxes look amazing. My husband is very handy - I've gotta show him your pictures. Add it on to my "honey, please do" list.
