The Fastest Cheapest XmasTree Skirt

Every year as I am putting up the tree I think about the gorgeous Christmas tree skirt I should have made. I have lots of ideas I always do, but never seem to remember to actually create one. So I will share my secret for the cheapest last minute tree skirt. A round table cloth. Yes, you fold it in half, cut along the fold half way, make a circle cut in the middle. Turn under and stitch up the rough edges. Voila!

Preserve the Memories

Interior designer Susan Schenk has created a line of pillows that are made from those fab outfits you will never wear but still have. "Everyone has an outfit in the back of their closet that they have saved for years and just can't part with. The outfit reminds them of an event, or a time in their life they cherish." The garments are made into sophisticated pillows that can be incorporated in your home interior.

The dress above was worn by three little girls in a wedding. The memories are now preserved, and a beautiful pillow adorns the bed.
