well looky what we got here...


my fabulous friend that just so happens to be a professional quilter brought back my katie quilt! i'm binding it this weekend!!! oh and see these plates? yeah they are alright, someone was cleaning out their closet and didn't want them any more and asked if i wanted this little plate rack and the the plates to go along with it...wasn't too excited about the plates...but with some spray paint...
hello now they don't look so bad! it was kimba from a soft place to land that taught me not to underestimate the power of spray paint!

and yes i got another one of these nice awards this time from empty nest full life, this gal is so nice and we hit it off from the first time we uh...met? blogged? commented on each other's blogs! anyways, thank you so much for the niceness. i'm glad people like my blog as much as i like to spout off my mouth about nothing really and some quilting and child rearing here and there! oh and thank you to all you nice ladies that put my link up on your blog, any little bit of publicity helps seeing that i'm just starting out in this whole etsy thing! thank you!

And how amazing is that plate transformation. I don't think I would have thought of painting a plate like that!

The quilt is beautiful...and I LOVE the rooster plates in the holder. I just LOVE Kimba for teaching us that you can spray paint virtually anything. I look at things in a whole new light now!!

The quilt looks amazing! I love the plates after you spray painted them white! Who would've thought!? I clicked on the link for your spray paint inspiration... love the white rooster! I have to get me some spray paint! Thanks for sharing!

I just got home from another trip so I am just getting caught up on all my blog reading! Love the holly girly bags and clips too! I will definitely put a post up with a link to your shop. Those are too cute!

I'm loving your quilt tooo! Actually, i have all the fabric cut out to make one of my own...now I'm inspired to finish it. Who is your AWESOME quilter? I have never sent out a quilt before but I would love to try as that is the part that holds me up from ever finishing (and consequently even starting new ones!). You can e-mail me at calikid2@cox.net--I would really appreciate it!!

It looks fabulous. Fantastic.
I love spray paint.
My kids think I am going to spray paint everything black.
I need to try white on ceramic, looks amazing.

It really is amazing what spray paint can do. It's completely updated! Beautiful quilt, too.
