Do you remember this old drawer?

I showed you a few ideas of how to use this in your home décor.

One of them was to add a few coffee cans with raffia tied around them

which looked like this…

What a cute “cottagey” way to display flowers, herbs… even your pens and pencils!

Well… 

Now… I think my cottage drawer wants to play dress up …

And dress up she did!

Just by adding a hand sewn pleated skirt, made her into a cute

Girly Cottage Drawer!

NOW…

I just have to share with you some fun comments made on the Girly Barn Mirror.

Cute, Clever & Funny:

Yep. That works! So cute - I can see it now. We will all be dressing up our mirrors and trying to out-do one another... but you win with the thrifting husband. All day long? Wow! I'm impressed!

Thanks for the laugh ladies… love them!!

And to all of you…
