Novel Creations: A New Chapter In Purses

Novel Creations Banner
I am very excited to welcome a new sponsor to Simply Sweet Home! Novel Creations is a new chapter in purses!  Karen of Argyle, Texas has taken some of the best loved books out their (classics and current favorites) and repurposed them in to cute and fashionable purses and clutches.

I ran across her shop a few weeks ago, and I immediately fell in love!  As an English I love seeing jewelry and accessory that are somehow centered around the classics, so to find purses made out of the actual books was just thrilling. [Read more…]

Get Crafty with Your Clothing for Spring Time

blue jans

You don’t have to be an amazing seamstress to use your craft skills to create something extraordinary with your existing wardrobe. Being crafty this spring and summer especially comes in handy if you’re getting tired of wearing the same outfits. If you’re in the mood to switch things up but aren’t sure where to start, there are always different creative activities you can perform on your tee-shirt or shorts, for example. If you need a break from scrap booking, accessory making, or whatever other activities you enjoy after your work day is over, here are some ideas to get you started:

Altering a Tee –Shirt
A tee-shirt is quite simple to alter, especially if it means cutting off the sleeves to make it into a tank top or creating a cut-out top that has several cut-outs on each side of the shirt. If you don’t have a shirt that you feel like cutting up with a pair of scissors you may want to consider purchasing a few inexpensive ones to experiment on. Also, if your experiment doesn’t work out start at square one and use coupon codes at  to purchase a few affordable pieces of clothing.

Tie-Dyed Apparel
Anything can be tie-dyed; you just have to be careful where and how you dye your clothing because it will need to be washed a few times prior to you wearing it. If you don’t wash it a few times after you dye it, it could bleed onto your other clothing next time you wash it, so be sure to do your research and make sure the item of clothing will no longer bleed. If you’re unsure how to complete this fun summer project do some research on the internet and experiment on clothing you know you can live without. It will look amazing on a maxi dress, a pair of jean shorts, or even a guy’s tie if you are feeling bold!

Add Embroidery or Lace
Of course there are always iron-ons and transfers that you can use on clothing, but if you’re super talented and know how to do embroidery, that is always a nice touch to add to a blouse or special item of clothing. Lace can also be ironed-on or sewed on to a top or pair of jean shorts. It will be fun to use your imagination and create special pieces of clothing that you know you created all on your own. Don’t be afraid to experiment, but understand that not everything will go smoothly, if it doesn’t –  there’s always

I love wearing and shopping for graphic tees!  I like anything that features a show or movie I like, especially when it’s an older show or movie, and then I also like the shirts that feature cute and funny sayings.  Recently I got the chance to shop at, and I was really pleased with all their wide selection.  After much deliberation, I decided to get the Jem Shirt.

For those who are unfamiliar, Jem and the Holograms was a show that came on in the mid to late 80s.  I used to watch this every morning, and I even dressed up as Jem one year for Halloween!  I’ve never seen Jem shirt anywhere prior to this, so  I consider it a great find!

Here’s a picture of me modeling the shirt: [Read more…]

Sleepwear and More for the Holidays with Dearfoams

One of my favorite things about winter time is getting to wear my pajamas and slippers around the house!  Dearfoams carries a great collection of robes, homeshoes, and sleepwear, which are perfect for a relaxing day at home, snuggled up  and lounging on the couch.  And they are also perfect for holiday gift giving.

I think house shoes and sleepwear are great gifts because everyone uses them.  You can buy everyone in the family the same or similar gifts, which makes the gift giving process very easy and convenient for you, and everyone will enjoy having something cozy to wear around the house.

I especially love their ankle booties! I love wearing fuzzy slippers in the winter time, and these look like they would be very warm.  They also come in some great colors and designs.  And they would be a great gift choice for kids and women of all ages.

I also love their blue bowtie pajamas.  I love the sweet pattern and the soft color, and they look so cute!

They also have some great gift selections for the men in your life.  I love their microsuede sherpa clog.  They look very nice and seem like they would be quite comfortable too.

Dearfoams also has a lovely assortment of hats,  scarves, and gloves.  Not only will they help keep you and your loved ones warm on a cold day, but they are very cute and stylish!

One of my favorite items is their Zig Zag Scarf!  I just love zig zag patterns, and this scarf has some really pretty colors.  I would look great with a sweater or wool coat, and they also have a cute hat to match!
