Gettin' All GUSSIED Up!

So Saturday went something like this...

Get up, eat breakfast, turn on glue gun.
Start making burlap roses for Caitlin's bridesmaid bouquets

I have sudden idea that I need to measure inside the camper!
Complete measurements for bedding area and ceiling area that needs repairing.
Get sidetracked and make a curtain out of a wedding dress! If you follow on Instagram you'll know I found a wedding dress at a garage sale a few weeks ago. Two tacks and she's now a curtain. I finished painting in the camper on Thursday, so I'm anxious to start decorating.

Go back inside and make more roses, all the while online shopping for a mattress and reading product reviews. Found a three quarter mattress with high praises at an affordable price, ordered it, a set of sheets, and mattress cover. Should be here in a week or so! 
Decide to go back to the camper and think about the curtains some more. What does one do with a BBQ stained tablecloth? Make curtains of course! 
The bottom half of this wall needs a few minor repairs and is going to be covered in new material, but I just couldn't help starting the gussification! I think GUSSIE is going to be her name. What do ya think? 

I couldn't stop at just these two curtains. The sewing machine was running good. (Read, I didn't have to fight the bobbin - it hates me!)

I found this little lamp at a recent garage sale, the wire frame at a resale shop and the two work great together dontcha think? I tied ribbons and twine on the frame. Don't fret, it's a battery powered votive. 

I then went to the farm for a while. I love watching all the little babies.

Also on the agenda at the farm was to photograph these bouquets. Heads up Brides to Be-
Moore Farms Rustic Weddings purchased these two bouquets to Give Away on their Facebook page in May and July. 
Head over to Moore Farms Rustic Weddings Facebook to watch for news about the upcoming giveaways. These two burlap and lace bouquets are two of the top three bouquets in my etsy shop. The other being the turquoise pictured above. 

Come home, eat supper, finish watching the Nascar race, while working on burlap corsages

I'd say Saturday was a fabulous, productive day and now I'm blogging from my cozy bench in the camper! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 


  1. You're always SO busy, and girl you're really making a name for yourself with the wedding bouquets. So proud of you!

    I think Gussie is an awesome name. Looks like Farmall man kind of likes the camper too! :)

  2. Wow! LOVE the curtain ideas!! Love the look!!

  3. Whew, I got tired from reading about all of those activities! Love the curtains, and the wedding dress one is sheer mad genius, LOL. Gussie sounds like a great name! But it really needs to be Miss Gussie, don't you think? So happy for you regarding the popularity of your creations. You deserve it!
