Ugh! I have had NO NO NO time to blog, POO! I miss my weekly posts. I finally have a minute to post my newest item in my Etsy shop. Plans on how to build your own floating ping pong table for your pool. I have to say, this is one of the most USED pool items we have. My poochie Phoebe even loves to get on it and float around hahahaha, not to mention she goes crazy when the ping pong ball is going back and forth! (I posted photos quite some time ago). I have had so many compliments about my pool toy that I decided to go ahead and make the plans so you can make your very own ping pong table for your pool. The kids (and grown ups) will love it!
Another share from Village Sweets. Pretty royal icing flowers to decorate your own cakes and cupcakes.
Have been in a sewing mood lately…. Today I made a pretty fashionable collar using fine Bridal Satins and Laces. I think it’s pretty anyway, lol. Available in my Etsy shop. They called for rain today, which is why I sat myself down at my machine early. It is looking sunny/cloudy with no sight of rain…yet. I often wonder if those weathermen/women know what they are talking about? I havesent a link for some weather entertainment below. Hmmm what do I make next, my sewing machine is calling!
A little weather humor from Canada for your entertainment, please watch this video “Rick Mercer Report” 🙂
Just added some great new NEON Winter Headbands to my collection that is available on the link below. I know, spring is just around the corner, but really? Winter just seems to have it’s claws into us and is just not letting go! I don’t mind, a snowshoeing here I come… a snowshoeing here I come…
This week I have been working on my head bands or head warmers for Peonie’s Closet. Did the photo shoot this morning for the head bands and took photos of my pyjama pants as well with my Model Lyndsay. So much nicer using a model! Head bands are great for outdoor activities or anyone who wants to make a fashion statement. Cool Montreal Canadians head gear or maybe you are a Batman fan! I try to do a little bit of everything for everyone.

Halloweenie time again! Seems it rolls around faster and faster every year. I had an amazing weekend, Saturday was absolutely beautiful out so it was time to do my photo shoot with some fantastic models modeling some of my costumes.
The fall backdrop was just gorgeous, and the warm weather just made it a perfect day. Will have to start my Halloween decorating too, hmmmm maybe something scary for the kiddies…
All my costumes are available at Etsy.com my shop “Peonie’s Closet”
How is everyone doing with Christmas now? Is everyone going cray cray with the shopping, the baking, the wrapping, the decorating, well you get it, the list goes on and on and on…
I am busily painting, I must confess the above has not gotten done, well okay except for decorating the tree, (and that is even a lie, Ooops! My daughter decorated the tree). Oh boy okay so I am going to be late in getting everything done, but that is okay, I will not stress out, I will do yoga! LOL
Here is a picture of my tree to get everyone inspired and get their tree up for the holidays, it’s not too early for the fake ones and you may as well get it up early and enjoy it for a longer period of time. Don’t you just hate all the work of getting out the boxes, unwrapping those oh so delicate ornaments, trimming the tree and what? it’s over a week later :0 Then ya gotta drag out all the boxes and tissu paper and put everything back! But we must love it, right? cuz we do it year after year! My real one will go up in a few weeks. Does anyone have any good ideas or tricks to help endure the life of a real Christmas tree? I just love the smell of a real tree when you walk into the house, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm like being in a pine forest
A little peek into what I have been painting and you can find them at my Etsy shop “Peonie’s Closet”…
This weather is driving me carazzzy! I have come to the conclusion that I must wake up at 4:30am to get some outside chores done. The weather is just too unbearable after 11:00am, and when is it going to rain??? The poor rivers…. they are so sunken and low, the water looks muddy and mucky, poor little frogs and duckies and whatever else is living in there. Although I do love a sunny day I have just about had it with this humidity and sun, sun, sun. I WANT IT TO RAIN!!!
Getting up early has it’s benefits, no one else is awake, it’s quiet, you hear everything so clearly, the birds, the crickets, the ants (okay not the ants)… it is actually so peaceful, I enjoyed watering my garden (ever so slightly with this drought, but I transplanted bushes so I just had to, Oooops) in the quiet of the early morning, it was kinda dark, I noticed it’s darker now, hmmm fall is coming (yeayyyy). I love the fall, cooler weather, pumpkins and Halloween…
I worked on a few chairs this morning, sanding away like a nutball, even in this heat, happy I did it. The mornings are kind of cool, nice and breezy. I will soon have them painted or stained, maybe add a cool looking cushion and they will be available for purchase in my Esty shop “Peonie’s Closet”. This week has been a painting week, started a cool mailbox and address sign. Hope to have it done by the end of the weekend. I have also gotten a cookie box completed, and started many other projects. It was a good productive week. Awww yes the benefits of getting up early and catching the worm, however this is sure to be me at 2:00pm hehehehe
