I can't show you my whole Christmas project, but I thought I would share with you my little juice glass collection. Yesterday I went to get a glass out of the cupboard for a drink of water. All the glasses were in the dishwasher....but I have these cute little striped juice glasses, I grabbed on of them...it took filling it up 3 times....then I remembered I have a larger stripped one...so I went looking for it. That triggered a thought in my mind to show my blogger friends all my little glasses.
I don't even know where I got this obsession with juice glasses, my mom never had any....I don't even remember drinking out of them when I was a child...but I LOVE THEM! I only have 2 of these sweet ones.
Then a few years ago I started looking on Ebay for them...it was one of the very first things I every bought from Ebay....like 5 of these cute ones with the little stem....SO DARLING...except, one accidentally jumped out of the cupboard one day and broke....poor thing.
This set is the first one I bought....I was in Pierre South Dakota with my friend visiting her sister. We went to an antique store and I saw this set....it was expensive....but I HAD TO HAVE IT!! I knew I would probably never see one like this again, so I bought it and have never been sorry!! It is my favorite and I do use this set a lot. Juice looks so decedent in this little pitcher with all the glasses around it. Perhaps this is the set that got me hooked...."thank you cute little set for getting me hooked!"

I know, two posts in one day...can you believe it? I wanted to share with you a new place I found to visit each day!!! Layla from The Lettered Cottage has been kind enough to share her photo, but you MUST go see her soft, happy place. It has become my favorite place to go each day! She inspired me to re-do the guest room that I have shown in previous posts. Thank you Layla...

Many of you have asked for further clarification on how I use the stain. First: paint entire piece well. Second: sand corners and edges with a medium sandpaper. Third: stain entire piece all over and then wipe off to your liking. If you want the piece darker, stain again. I usually stain the whole thing, then wipe the stain off. Good luck.

2-flour sack towels 24-27" hemmed
3+ 1/8 yard rick-rack
2-Jelly Roll pieces
You are all so smart, you can figure out that you sew the rick-rack onto the Jelly Roll fabric.....about 3-4" up from the bottom of the towel! YOU CAN DO IT!

For my bathroom cupboards I left the stain on almost as dark as it went on and didn't wipe it off.
1. Clean your project
