I bought a sewing machine four years after convincing myself that I was destined to become the next winner of Project Runaway. That dream fizzled when the needle hit a pin and  broke and I couldn't figure out how to replace it. The machine sat in my spare closet for the next few years until recently, when I resolved to learn how to sew. It was surprisingly not near as hard as I thought. I've whipped up quite a few pillows for my front and back porches since replacing the broken needle and I'm currently searching high and low for other projects that feature sewing! :) 

Don't you just love stumbling upon a good junk store find? I found these two wicker chairs for a whopping $12 each. Yes, they aren't in the best condition, but they will look just adorable on my back porch! Isn't it amazing what a coat of fresh paint can do!


I found that darling pillow at TJ Maxx. It came in a set of two, so it will perfectly with both chairs. Love!
