Twyla on Tuesday



Hello sweet ladies!
I hope you are all managing to
stay cool.  It is definitely indoor
weather!  I've huffed and puffed,
but haven't blown any houses down.
Every day is near 100 degrees.
Ugh!




Today I wanted to share with you my cup
collection.




I love these old cups!
I usually collect the ones that have pink
or blue on them.




Over the weekend we shared our
craft room in the Where Women Create blog
party.
I like to decorate creatively, too!




I love collecting old sewing machine drawers.
They are perfect for displaying my small
treasures.




This display just makes me happy.




Remember the giant granny square challenge I
told you about last Tuesday?
I finished it!




It was just so much fun I couldn't stop!
Every time I sat down I picked it up and worked
on it. 




I finished off the edges in a multicolor
picot edging just for fun!



Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!
Twyla

Love your little collection of cups, but me oh my, that giant granny square is fabulous! I can't believe you finished! Why does the granny square give me such a fit? The increasing is what confuses me and things don't turn out quite right. I gotta give it another go. Have a terrific Tuesday, Tammy

You have a wonderful cup collection, Twyla! And all your pics on the wall are great,too. Those drawers make such great diplay cases. I don't think I ever see those when I go to the antique mall but maybe I just don't notice them. I tend to suffer from sensory overload when I go!

Your afghan turned out wonderful! Love the multi color edge! ♥

Hi Twyla. :) Your teacup collection is beautiful and so old fashioned. Reminds me of a pretty tearoom or bed and breakfast.

The quilt is beautiful!

I love your cup collection, and all of the other things that you display amongst them!
Very hot here too. And dry. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I can't wait for Fall!

GarterMademoiselle said...

that hot out! Wow, I will take some of that heat off your hands, we could use it here in Germany where cold overcast gray days have been the daily menu for much too long. Where did summer go? As for the items, one sweeter and cuter then the other, and all in my favorite pastel shades of ivory, pink and blues. Sooo pretty. I enjoyed seeing every one. Enjoy the summer inspite of the heat, better that then the 60° I have! :-) ~Debby

Cute! Cute! Just way too cute! Love all your pretties - they make me happy, too. Such a sense of femininity and innocence. I have always felt that decorating my house was like a painter painting a canvas. Am changing out a lot just now. Hope to post something in a couple of weeks with my new decor digs!
Joy!

What a pretty collection. I really like how you display them. And I like the afgan. I made one similar about 25 years ago. Everything comes around again, doesn't it?
