Why you Should Think Twice Before Throwing out Old Sweaters

Sweater Pillow (3)

I loved this sweater vest. Especially the fringe.

But it didn’t like me. Every time I wore it I felt frumpy.

As I was relegating it to the garage sale pile I had second thoughts.

No second thoughts about keeping it to wear…thoughts about what I could make with it.

Multi Fabric Pillows (2)

We have a new email subscription provider here at Beyond the Screen Door!

Over the past few months I’ve been working to determine the best option for email subscriptions and to correct the issue of “lost” email blog posts. I know this has been frustrating. If you’ve missed receiving Beyond the Screen Door in your in-box hopefully this switch has corrected any problems.

If you’d like to have Beyond the Screen Door delivered to your in-box…and I’d be so tickled if you do…please fill out the Subscription Box in the upper right hand corner of the side bar. It’s that easy!

Mixed Fabric Pillow

Do you ever find yourself thinking…just one more pillow?

Or asking, “Honey, doesn’t this sofa need just one more pillow?” But don’t take his answer too seriously because guys rarely acknowledge the need for another pillow.  

“Just one more pillow.” I hear this often.  I think this often.

Especially with leftover fabric. Or while perusing the remnants at the fabric store. Or perusing the pillow aisle at TJ Maxx.

This was Elizabeth’s philosophy after we remade the valances in her kitchen and family room and she realized she had left over fabrics.

How about one more pillow?
