DIY Dandelion Wine <-------- I found this great post about making dandelion wine. I love dandelions and I love wine. Peter has been brewing his own beer - maybe I will start making my own wine. I'll post pictures of the process when I do it.... which won't be for awhile since we still have a lot of snow on the ground.

I am in my hometown (Binghamton) watching Little Women, drinking wine, eating a danish and strawberries, and knitting a new yellow scarf (I am a multi-tasker). I love this movie so much, it never gets old. It makes me want to start a treasure chest of costumes and have plays in my attic.

I've been trying to think spring, think spring... I made these flowers out of felt and beads. I want to make a bazillion of these and put them all over my apartment, turn up the heat, close the curtains, toast marshmellows over a candle (I use to actually do this when I was a kid) and think of spring and summer. I really can't wait!

This is the second scarf I have ever finished! And the first infinity scarf I have ever made. It took a lot longer than I thought it would - about 3-4 days... I love the color it's like the color of peas. I think I might try to make some yellow socks next!

I made this chair after the bird chairs. I still need to put a coat or two more orange paint on it - I forgot to sand the chair down before painting it, this is still very new to me. I love this warrior fabric though - I found it on ebay. I still have about a yard left, and don't know what to do with it.

This is also another first for me.... reupholstering chairs. I've never even used a staple gun before... so fun!! I love this fabric - I got it from the local Elmwood Village Fabrics. After I did this chair and it turned out well I started taking everything in the apartment apart and reupholstering everything.

I made this dresser a couple of weeks ago. It's the first time I have done anything like this. I found this great sailboat wallpaper on ebay and used spray adhesive to apply it to the front of the drawers. I painted the wood a soft yellow. It turned out really great. My friend is giving me a dresser today to work on, I'm thinking some type of geometric black and white wallpaper and turqoise paint. We'll see...
