I Spy Home Edition & Eisy Morgan recreate #3--Scarflace

Most crafting, creating, musing, loving and living happens in our homes.
So I thought that I would share with you a bit of my favorite things that
I SPY 
around my house while I am doing these things.

{Of course the my most favorite things to see around the house are my two boys having fun}

When you walk in our front door you enter our living/dining room,
and you are looking at this brightly colored statement wall where . . .

I SPY
 my mini China cabinet ($15 Estate Sale).
I love this because some of my favorite things are on or in the cabinet.

I SPY
my wedding bouquet and DL's boutonniere and some dust.

 I SPY
my book collection (a small portion) and a vintage statue that was my mom's

I SPY
 a Cuban heritage tribute wall


I SPY
a wood carving from Spain given to us as a wedding gift from my husband's cousins who still live there.
The house is a Casa Dio which resembles the one in which they live.


I SPY
My bedroom Desk ($15 yard sale) full of craziness and empty frames.


I SPY
my light switch plate that I have had since 8th grade.
It has lived with me in four homes.

I SPY
my super cozy bed all made up with Starbucks BEARistas to greet me.

I SPY
 an antique chest that was originally purchased by my step-dad's great-uncle

FINALLY . . .
I SPY
ROLY POLY!!!!
Playing in his make shift prison in his room while mommy takes a break from work this morning.

This I SPY post was inspired by Ashley of Little Miss Momma.
If you want to play along go visit her for details.

NOW ON TO SOMETHING THAT I CREATED WHILE 
SURROUNDED BY THESE ITEMS AROUND MY HOUSE.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I know that this might be a bit out of season now being that it is a yarn project, 
but as a crocheter I have lots of yarn hanging about.

Thus, I decided that this was a great project to recreate for Eisy Morgan's linky party.
It was simple and sweet.

I did two of them.

The first is white yarn, like in her tutorial.
I did make it a little thinner by only making the chain once.
I also made it short, like a bib necklace, by accident.




I love this gold one, especially because I HATE to crochet with this funky specialty yarn.
I just don't have the skills.


For both scarflaces I used elastic line, instead of wire to attach the beading.
The white one has iridescent sequins,
while the gold has multi-colored seed beads with larger glass beads at the intersections.
I will most likely be putting both of these away to wear next Fall/Winter.

Go check out the tutorial
I am sure that many of you have the supplies laying around the house.

  1. Such lovely things! I especially like your desk, the fabric of your bedspread, and that gorgeous antique chest... but the best part is your little guy - so cute! Your necklaces are beautiful too!
