Ruby Star Wrap-Along

Ruby Star Wrap-Along: Week 6

December 10, 2012

Dang! I had plans of getting my Christmas tree this weekend and decorating n’ junk but that didn’t happen. Instead me and the hubby picked up this awesome piece from a local consignment store!

Mid-Century Modern Credenza

I love it for so many reasons. The main reason is that my hubby was on board to get it. I mean. . . I never really mentioned to him that I was into the whole mid-century modern Design . . so it’s like: “Hey Honey, can you please read my mind?” So now we’re looking for a nice piece of art to go above it. Can’t wait to get my living room together!!!

We’re into the 6th week of the Wrap-Along! Have we inspired you to wrap differently? I know that seeing other bloggers wrapping projects have inspired me.

Today you’ll see Maureen of Maureen Cracknell Handmade showing the Button Down Shirt Bag:

    I love that typewriter coin purse! I was a secretary for many years and I learned to type on an old typewriter. It’s too cute!

    I’m not sure who won for week 5 but I’m tickled to say that I was the lucky winner for week 4. Pink Chalk delivered my fabric from the gift certificate shopping spree and I also had the most wonderful box arrive today from the amazing Melody Miller – I still can’t believe it, SO special. Thank You!
