Tassels, tassels, everywhere

The Nester is having a Tassel Party!

When I was growing up, the only kind of tassel I knew about was this kind:

Love me some Silver Queen!

Now, of course, I know all about decorative tassels. And thanks to Nester, I even know how to make my own. (Visit Nester to buy your own copy of her e-book on tassel-making: you won't be sorry!)

Here's one of my creations:



Isn't she cute? She's made with trim left over from another project and a topper from Dollar Tree. So she cost me $1 to make. She's a lot of fun for a buck, don't you think? She hangs proudly from the lamp in my laundry room. She's currently occupied in hounding me to put away the clothes stacked on her counter, which is supposed to remain clean. Ahem.



By the way, in case you're wondering: Nester has been crowned Tassel Queen. Heathahlee was named 1st Runner Up. I'm shooting for Miss Congeniality, myself. Visit Nester to see all the other contestants!

****And please come back here tomorrow for a very special announcement!****

I love the tassles! I also love the picture with the blue door. This reminds me of the Greek islands where many of the doors and shutters were painted that very color. Carla
