Recycled Christmas Stocking



Recently my grandmother passed away and while going through her stuff, I found some very old quilts, quite a few with large holes and tears that were not fixable. I just couldn't make myself throw them away.
So, given the season, I decided to try my hand at making a Christmas stockng using the pieces of one of the old torn up quilts. Mind you, I have never made a stocking nor did I have a template for one, I just winged it, hence the results.
Still think it's cute and keeps someone's hardwork to be appreciated and used.

A centerpiece to impress

I found this while browsing through the Thanksgiving section of

I hosted my first ever Thanksgiving this year and had 9 guests. So, since I don't really do Southern food, I thought I would try my hand at this thing. Everyone loved it just as I loved it in the picture online, and really, it is as easy as can be. Much easier than making a homemade pie crust. And, this is edible or you can spray it to keep it for later uses (but don't eat it if you spray it, ew).

Just, please ignore the trash can in the background in the second picture, I promise, it's far away from the table and come on, it was Thanksgiving day cooking.
