Just Yo Yoing Around

I decorated this letter L for my great nephew- Mom's color choices.
And now I'm making a letter A for my great niece with these happy colors AND I'm making one for another grand nephew!!  These are a hit!

I'm also working on rag ball garland orders AND making fall colored yo yos for a wreath come October.  I've been a busy crafter!
Pssst!  The cottage is a wreck! 

Thanks you for all the comments on my rag ball garland post.  see post below if you missed it.
Hope you're having a happy summer!

Do You Wanna Buy A Garland?

 Do You Wanna Buy A Garland?  
(Title sung to the tune of Do You Wanna Build A Snowman.)

Once upon a time, women saved their fabric scraps for quilt piecing and rag rugs.
Since scraps needed to be organised, some were wrapped into balls until used.
With these resourceful women in mind, I created mini rag ball garlands! 
Mini rag balls are made from small styrofoam balls and covered in vintage, upcycled or new fabric- depending on my inventory at the time.
Not forgetting the memory of Grandma's button jar, I also add sweet buttons to my garlands!
Strung on yarn, garlands are 4 feet long with the buttons and balls  spaced tightly.
With extra yarn left at each end, buttons and balls can be spaced if a longer garland is wanted.  
Happily custom made by me, Holly, at Cutie Pie Cottage, your mini rag ball garland will be perfect with *your* choice of colors!
Little girls love these garlands so they make a perfect gift for them, too. (For decorative
 purposes only.) 
Available for just $20.00 which includes shipping, mini rag ball garlands are the perfect touch of creative, crafty cute!   
I do not have a Paypal at this time so payment must be made by check, money order or cash.
(Would anyone like to help me set up a paypal?)  
  If you would like to buy a mini rag ball garland, please send me an email through the address provided in my profile here on blogger.  (Click on profile located in my blog sidebar.)
You can also send me a private message through my  Cutie Pie Cottage facebook page.  Please join me there if you haven't already!

If you already own one of my garlands and love it, please leave a comment here so other people will know how much more adorable they are in person!
Thank you so much!

Humpty Takes A Family!

 I already had Mr. Humpty in the middle but found his new wife and stepson at the thrifts!  I was amazed!  I've never found Irmi at the thrifts before! 

 It is reported that Mrs. Humpty's first husband had a great fall.

Not sure what's up with this highlighting!
