Really! No Spoolin'!



Ever since I bought these spools of seam binding
I new they would be re-invented...somehow...




So, I gussied up some pieces of vintage
wallpaper...




added a nice little note...



...and an old spoon...



I don't know what you're supposed to use to
cut a spoon??? Regardless, I had nothing, so I
spent 5 minutes bending it back and forth until
it broke...and let me tell you, I GOT SO HOT!!!!



Then an old pearl-topped pin was needed...



All to make a little "welcome" sign...



I just had to add that little bird for a bit of
fun!


Be sure to stop over and visit Kelli
for SHOW & TELL FRIDAY !!
