My hubby and I have a total of four checking accounts we use for different purposes. Since we haven’t completely moved from My Cottage of Bliss into the house in Hooterville yet, we are essentially keeping two households running so, as you can well imagine, the checkbooks are in constant use.
Recently, I decided writing checks might not be such a dreaded chore if I had a cute checkbook cover for the My Cottage of Bliss “household account” that I always keep in my purse.
I found that Etsy has a wide variety of checkbook covers to chose from.
Although I thought the bow was a cute touch, I surmised it would take a real beating in my purse so I asked Michelle if it would be possible to remove the bow but keep the flat sage grosgrain ribbon as an accent. She was more than happy to accommodate my request.
When the checkbook cover arrived a few days later, I was amazed at Michelle’s sewing talent. The cover is beautifully constructed. Every stitch is just perfect. The ribbon loop for holding a pen is a very nice convenience.
I was loving my cute new checkbook cover so much I decided I wanted to treat myself to another one for the house in Hooterville “Remodeling Fund” checkbook I also carry in my purse. I went back on the Etsy site and ordered this cover made from cheerful aqua and green Amy Butler fabric by Monica at BitsOHoney Designs.
With these bright and cheerful fabrics, it is now so much easier to spot the checkbook I need in my purse but, best of all, they just put a smile on my face every time I have to pull one of them out to write a check!
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 44 years. We have one beautiful and precious daughter, age 35.
After more than 37 years in the workforce, I was fortunate enough to be able to quit my job in 2007 and stay home. As a natural born homebody and "nester," this opportunity to be a full-time homemaker has brought me immeasurable contentment and happiness. I thoroughly enjoy spending each and every day in the cozy comfort of "My Cottage of Bliss."
About the "House in Hooterville": In October 2009, we bought a 30 acre horse farm in a small country town approximately 45 miles from the city where I have lived my whole life. Join me, a city girl through and through, as I try to simultaneously adapt to country life in "Hooterville" and redecorate the 1978 brick ranch-style house on the property into My (new) Cottage of Bliss.
