  9. Wow! this is a ca-ute project! That inspires me to do my ottoman :) But it probably wont be as cute!

  10. Hi! I love your blog! HOW did you learn how to do this? I am amazed.

  11. So this is funny. I came by because I have your ice cream bread recipe bookmarked and I plan to make it this week. I decided to browse around and came to see your ottoman. As I was ooohing and aaahing and generally turning green with envy, I decided to comment. Only to see that apparently I commented on this post a year ago. Lol! I think I love it more now than I did then!!
