Saturday I needed to make a quick run to Home Depot for some molding to make a quick fall project. When we got there, I fully intended on buying only the molding. (BTW this never happens! I am a bad impulse buyer...)

First of all, I just have to say that one of my most favorite smells is the lumber section of Home Depot. If I could bottle that smell, I would! My husband thinks I am crazy! When we arrive, I parked on the opposite side of the store than I needed. This is where I went wrong. When we first walked in we were greeted by the tile department in all it's glorious splendor! I "just wanted to look." Down the isle we went, and I saw these little 4 inch marble cuties. Some were tan, some were taupe, they came in packages of 9. I bought three packages. I looked at my husband and said, Ok now besides these and the molding, I am not buying anything else.

Rushing to the lumber section so that I could not get distracted by further crafting possibilities, I got my one piece of molding, and then headed to the register. I was so proud that I only wavered from my plan a little.
Let me just add this, My husband is very understanding when it comes to my impulse buying. He just tells me that as long as I am happy he does not care. Plus, he knows that I never buy at full price!
When I got home I totally set aside the molding, and got to work making some coasters that I had been eyeing on other blogs for a while now. I wanted a set of my own!

Here they are!

Cherry Blossom Pillow

Can you tell what has been going on in my craft room lately?

PILLOWS! I am swimming in a sea of throw pillows and I love them! Here is a sneak peek at my newest pillow. I made the flowers from felt, and I cut the circles out of light brown, then i cut each petal from both a cream felt, and a crimson felt. Then I glued them together with hot glue, and sewed them to the "tree branch." I really enjoy the simplicity of the pillow. (I realize this is totally out of season, but I just started cutting and this is what came out!)
I linked up to the following parties:
