How how I love these sweet art smocks!! Made with laminated cotton in fun prints for boys and girls. Think of all the memories your little people will paint up for you both. Kerri, my Ohio Junie, has been hard at work to bring us many prints to choose from, I'm happy to have these back on the Etsy shop for holiday gift giving!!

We have just gotten a few new laminated cotton prints in and this one from Amy Butler is just perfect for my dining room. The name of the fabric is Couture Floral. I love, love, love it so I had the Junies make one last tablecloth before taking off for a long holiday weekend!! My family and I really like our Modern June elasticized tablecloths because the stay put and are so easy to clean up. See all our new laminated cotton swatches on flickr.
We all wrote down what we were thankful for much like Laura's family does, check our her pretty blog, Finding Home!
You might have noticed over the years that I'm a last minute, fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl. Thanksgiving is always done last minute since we're right in the middle of the holiday rush. Once the table was set I realized that I didn't have a set of coordinating napkins. OOPS!
Check out my quick cheater napkins, they are just fat quarters. Yep, just a simple piece of fabric squared off with pinking shears. Once I cut them I folded them back up like they were, that way I didn't have to pull out the iron. You have to love using your stash for things like this. Once they are all washed up, I'll use my new serger sewing machine and finish them off quickly with a rolled hem, this way they won't fray over time and heavy use.
How sweet are these gorgeous chocolate turkeys? OMG, they cost way too much but I couldn't resist getting one for each of my kids. Fresh Market knows how to get all my $$. I'm hoping that Maddie and Aidan are nice enough to share.
We love us some pie!! Learn how to make chalk cloth chalkboard at my other blog Oilcloth Addict!
I hope you and yours had as nice of a Thanksgiving as we did. I am so thankful for all the kindness and support you all give me and my team of Junies over the years. I am truly blessed!!

It's been a mighty long time since we've offered laminated cotton baby bibs on our Etsy shop. I'm happy to say that I have a terrific staff of Junies that is able to keep us stocked up!! Check out our bibs in prints for girls and boys at Modern June.

Here's one of the many things that I am thankful for this year!! The kind editors at Country Living Magazine asked me to share some of my Thanksgiving tips with their readers so I told them about the last big turkey dinner that that I hosted they fell in love with our Modern June Chalk Cloth Runners! Chalk out lines assure that you won't forget the dressing!
We have many chalk cloth runners to choose from, as well as, chalk cloth chargers/placemats! These are a lot of fun at parties and game nights! They even make homework fun -- almost!
Even Target loves scribbling through dinner!! Check out this fun commercial! Chalk cloth can be a bit too thick for a traditional table cloth so I suggest using one of our runners or follow the directions on how to make a chalk cloth Table Topper on my Oilcloth Addict Blog! We do sell chalk cloth by the yard at our Oilcloth Addict Shop on Etsy.

As you can see it's not all oilcloth, laminated cotton and chalk cloth! Nope, I've been playing with all types of fabrics! Stay tuned, there will be lots of happy for all.
