Pin It Wednesday: Summer


In keeping with the Point of View theme for July, today's Pin It Wednesday theme is "summer". Here are this week's pins...


I fell in love with these right away. The fabric is beautiful. Imagine showing up to a
summer BBQ with one of these covering your dish. These would make a fantastic gift, too.

This is the very first project that I saw on Lorene's blog, and I have loved it ever since.
Another idea would be to do the same thing with shells. Such a neat way to preserve a memory.

A few weeks ago my husband told me that he saw a picnic table in someone's backyard
with a tablecloth on it, and he thought we needed one. That night I found this tutorial.
Perfect timing. This laminated cotton tablecloth ties to your picnic table...
no worries about it blowing away.

I just love the look of hand stamping on fabric. These are made using kitchen tea towels. Brilliant.

Do you have a summer-themed tutorial pinned or bookmarked that you have made or are hoping to make soon? If so, leave me a link in the comments so I can check it out. Thanks!

I love that picnic table tablecloth. My mom wants some for her THREE tables! I guess I need to go see how they did it. ;)

I'm sure you've already seen the Starboard Skirt, but I just love how cute and simple it is: http://pinterest.com/pin/59445173/

Definitely on my to-do list

Aww, you pinned me! I'm honored :)

And I actually JUST made a Texas version with shells from our last trip. I've stalled getting it into the frame, but I'm hoping to do that in the next few days and then share it. It definitely does look great with shells, too! And I managed to simplify the process this time around :)
