Afresheet, Interesting, Weird…You Decide

I just saw this product over on The Decorologist blog and it is well lets say different. A sheet with pull off layers. Seven pull off layers for a clean fitted sheet. Watch the video below.


At first it does seem really odd but think about how that might just work for children especially after they get sick in the middle of the night or while they are potty training. Also how about the elderly or someone very ill that shouldn’t be moved a lot. I think this guy just might be on to something even if it does seem a little strange at first.

If you think it’s a great idea then chip in a little help the guy out. It might just be your sick kids bed that is easier to change in the middle of the night one night thanks to him.

The Magical, Friendly, Cheerful, Fun Piano!

I love this idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could sit there all day and watch the different people have fun with this piano. All of the people who enjoy it and take part in it are so much fun and many are so talented.

Wow Funky Shoes!

I just discovered Nasty Gal. I must say they do have some nice, normal, regular, down to earth, flat, easy to wear, not make everyone’s eyes pop out of their head shoes, but for the most part these are some funky shoes! So if you want to see some really unusal and fun shoes click on Nasty Gal.

Root Fences

This is such a clever idea – root fences


as seen in this very interesting and informative book

Best Blog Ever!

I am so in love with Marisa Lynch’s blog, New Dress A Day.  Marisa buys the most out of style sometimes hideous dresses from thrift stores and works magic on them. I have never seen anything like this before. This is the ultimate in creativeness and recycling.

I did a post on this about a year ago but she now has a book out so I thought it was time for another post and I am re-energized to re-create some things for myself. I do hate to sew though so this will really be a challenge.  I will push past that because of how darn useful this stuff is. You just can’t beat the cost, creativeness and fun of these re-dos.

I started last night with a light wool type jacket that my daughter in law gave me last winter. I absolutely could not wear it with that collar sticking up as it was. It was itchy and sticking me in the neck. So I took it off. Luckily this only required hand sewing, not that I enjoy that any better. I only had to sew from the beginning edge of the collar to the point where it met the lining and where there was a loop in the middle for hanging the jacket. I will have to go back and iron the lining down as it sticks up a little where the new hem line is. That shouldn’t be too much of a problem.  So here are the pics.

And yes it was very difficult to see the stitching on this pattern. I just pulled the seems as tight as I could and went very slowly so as not to cut the jacket itself.
