Straw Handbag Planter

Straw Handbag PlanterI found this cute straw handbag for near to nothing. It has a great look and can be useful in a fun way as a garden planter wreath. Add a simply lining (if using live flowers) or not if artificial flowers that can get changed out with the different seasons are chosen. I wanted to give it a more fresh look, so it was updated with spray paint, colorful ribbon, and flowers.

Singer 66-6 Won't StitchMy newly acquired Singer 66-6 machine won't stitch. It was stiff and with cleaning and penetrating oil it loosened up and now runs very smoothly.
