Just another finished project and a really cool find....

 I just finished this one up last night, blocked it over night and ready to be listed in my Etsy Shop.  I made is with #224 DMC Cebelia (I call it dusty rose, or antique rose).  Almost 30"..perfect size for a tabletopper.  I think I will make another in maybe a coffee color..or white or ecru..hmm..there are more pic of it in my shop..see the icon off to your right..it will take you to my shop..
 Can you guess what this is?  I found it in walmart.  They actually come in sets of two.....
 This is the rest of it....Cool HUH?!! I have never had wood floors and never knew they were so hard to keep up with.  Especially with this cow of a dog..Buddy..You know I love him but he creates work for me without even trying..anyway..I found these at Walmart..about $6.00 a pair..so I thought why not..slipper sweepers..love them..when they get dirty (or full of hair) take them off, shake them out, throw them in the washer and yes..they can even go in the dryer...How cool is that..and best of all...they work....I am going to buy a pair everytime I go to Wally world..so I can put them on all the feet that come into my house...and those feet can help me clean..grandkids will love it and find dirt I didn't know I had..my kids will think I am crazy...and my mom..she will think its great...I think it is a win win...cheaper than slippers, my floor gets cleaned..and everyone's feet are warm...Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you leave a comment or two so I know you were here..but if you don't that's cool too...Blessings..

Beautiful doily! We gave my daughter-in-law a pair of these slippers as a gag gift at her bridal shower. She loved them and wore them the rest of the shower!

Love the tabletopper - it's so pretty. Those slipper dusters are pretty cool - definately a time saver. :)

LOVE the pineapples! Looks great.

Those slippers are priceless! My boy was looking over my shoulder as I was reading your post, and he's a new fan of the 'fuzzy cleaning slippers.' =D
