Speaking of pillows – have you seen these fun, water blobs for summer?

    Thank you so much for including my portrait applique keepsake pillow in your weekend round up! I love the idea of repurposing clip on earrings into a bracelet too, I might have to try that one out! All the best- Jenelle

    Stacy, this has nothing to do with your blog today but I just saw Gertie Hershey from Butterick patterns. We’re headed to FL and stopped at Graceland in Memphis. She wouldn’t admit that she was in fact Gertie but it was her. I was so star struck it was crazy!

      OOOOH, so fun! So, I have to ask, what was she wearing (and was she still sporting the pink hair)? #FanGirl

        It was the way she was dressed that caught my eye. She had on a full-circle skirt and a sweater. Her hair was black with a bleached streak. He hair was in sausage rolls up on top of her head. She had all the tattoos in all the right places so I know it was her.
