Hi Readers,
I hope all is very well with everyone on this fine Tuesday. Today my Coast to Coast blogger is Lakeitha! Where do I even begin? Let me start off by mentioning that she has two blogs (really) I can barely manage one. She is the lovely writer for  *Home to Three Duncan Boys and Swoon Worthy Boutique. Here are just three of my favorite posts click on each photo to read the backstory.

Fabric and Pillows

I pinned a few of my favorite pillows from Pinterest, hopefully I will feel inspired to break out the sewing machine over the weekend.
I love this gathered pillow

This would be a great project for me during the winter

Great trio of patterns

I purchased this great fabric from Old Time Pottery, I plan on making some terrific pillows for the living or family room.

 I'm trying something a little different I love the colors.

Have a great weekend!

Do you need a quick easy peasy project for the holidays? I have one for you!

 Paint each letter using the metallic paint let dry, brush on Elmer's glue and apply your choice of glitter
I forgot to photograph the glitter -  I used silver and white

using your hot glue gun add garland , berries and letters

It doesn't get any easier than this! Go ahead "make my pot."
