A cheerful day

Hi there! 
Last week I found a wonderful easy tutorial to make a skirt, 
over at Blondie Blu. She inspired me to attempt my very first one. In her tutorial she used a pillowcase and I didn't have any at the moment that I wanted to use for a skirt so I found this pretty fabric in my stash!  Let's just say I learned a few things on this one :) lol. I am wanting to make another, I might cut up some material from a vintage sheet for my next one. :) 
For the pocket I used a dolie, on the outside of the skirt. 

 An instagram picture of my dad's tractors :) 
On my walk out to the horses.

And another instagram pic of a bird bath my hubby got me :) 
The birds seem to like splashing around in the little compartments. 

I was oh so excited a couple of weeks ago when
 I went to check the mail and found this very sweet box there!

So many cute vintage goodies inside :) :) 
Thank you Erica!! From:: The Golden Egg Vintage
I just couldn't pass this Christmas lot up! 

Hope you have a cheerful day!!
