Makeover Monday: 4/11

Well, I was being a little tricky about the "color" missing in my shop... I was thinking white- sort of a non-color, but missing just the same.  Pardon the terrible *before* photo- that really is a very stark white cotton sheet!
~*~
I haven't added any large upcycled containers lately, so I made this bucket as large as the sheet would allow.  This baby is over 9" wide and almost 5" tall.
~*~
And, since I had two people kind enough to look in my shop and report back about the lack of yellow (high five Donna and Kristine!), I went ahead and took their advice using a bit of this lovely vintage fabric.
~*~
This is more like sweet petite size- 4.5" across by 2.5" high.  I've tweaked my bowl recipe... now the sides flare out gently creating more of a bucket shape.  I'm such a Gemini- can't stand to do the same thing for too long!
~*~
Guess what HUGE thing I'll be doing this week?  Registering my baby for Kindergarten at her new school for next year.  *sob*  Where has the time gone?  How will I possibly be able to put her on a bus?  Wish me luck with this first step on Thursday. 
~*~
Do you have any big or exciting plans for the week?  Or perhaps you have an idea for the next spill it session?  I'm all ears!!!  Happy Monday- thanks so much for stopping by my little nook of cyberspace :)

Good luck with the signing up, I'll be thinking of you both.
I do hope Sophie's excited :o)

I love the white bowl, it's so pristine and modern :o)
Oh dear, I didn't mean to give you extra work to do with the yellow bowl lol .....you know you need a green one now don't you ;o)

OOooo, I forgot to say, whilst being nosey in your shop, I came across a most GORGEOUS wine bottle carrier...I love it :o)

Have a lovely week Jennie..I'm with 'ya Thursday :)

*high five!*

You *were* being tricky, Jennie. I totally wasn't thinking about white at all. It's a lovely bowl, and the yellow cutie is a great addition!

What a big moment for you and Sophie! Is she excited?

I love your white bowl! It has a very charming look to it. I bet Sophie is pretty excited about going to register for her new school...many big steps coming up for her...new school, riding a schol bus...new kids and teachers...all kind of scarey for a little kid. I remember prying my little girls hand off mine and forcing her onto the school bus. A very traumatic time for all of us but somehow you get through it...didn't we Jennie?!....and you will too! xooxo
