Life Tied Up With A Bow


I had a bit of birthday money and for $1.97 this little bit of life came home with me from his shelf at Walmart. I think I gave him a pretty good home by my kitchen sink.

I spent way to much money on ribbon the other week at Michaels. Let's just say it was all on clearance and each spool had polka dots on it. Nuff said. Mmmm k.




But this bit of ribbon came wrapped around some birthday gifts my mom sent me. I was going to use the white and black polka dot ribbon I bought - but this dark forsest green goes much better with the little pot my fern lives in and my delicious smelling soap. Vanilla Bean Noel from Bath and Body Works.

Is there anything cuter than a tiny bow tied with cute ribbon? I think not.

This is so cute! I'm horrible at keeping plants alive. About the hat I made... I really have no clue how to REALLY sew, but you can make just about anything with a tutorial! Jami
