Hi everyone, hope you all are having a great weekend!
Mine started with my guys going to the friday night High School Varsity football game, 
and me having the house all to my self.
"I Love Friday Night Football"
and now you all know why!
Then we continued with our son playing, saturday morning, with his freshman team.
Well, sadly both teams lost :(
Home now and enjoying the rest of the weekend!

I have been working on this flowerpot pen holder this week
and finally got it finished last night to were I liked it.
I brought it home from my desk at work to give it an overhaul.
A few weeks ago it fell of my desk and brook into millions of pieces.
I replaced the terra-cotta pot with one which was partially painted (ugly) blue.
After looking at the ugly pot long enough
I decided ...

... to add a little "Bloom" pick to the pot.
I sewed two pieces of brown paper together to make them look like a little
brown seed bag, stamped and added some embellishments...
 ... the ugly blue was covered up with old book pages (deco-paged) 
for the rim I crocheted a little cozy in a single crochet stitch pattern.
I did not attach the cozy permanently, I thought if I ever wanted to change 
the color, it will slips right off, to be replaced by another one.
What do you think?
Sorry I forgot to take before and after pictures,
I need to get better at this.

Thanks for stopping by!
Every visit means a lot to me!
Have a great weekend!
