Good morning everyone! I have been a busy little bee lately and have been neglecting my blog a bit…
I wanted to share with you some of the artsy goodness that I’ve been working on the past couple of weeks. There is a whole mish-mash of things here so bear with me! I have a tendency to jump around in a lot of different projects…..
First up I wanted to share with you some of the fall decor that I put up around the house. Trying to get myself into a festive fall mood here in Texas despite the 90 degree temps!
The dining room is all set to go, except I’m still looking for my darn napkin rings! I suspect they could have been used as bracelets by my youngest….I used a burlap table runner with a vintage doily underneath. Weston had fun putting those little pumpkins around the large centerpiece. :)
And a detail shot….
In the dining room I created a cute fall banner from burlap, vintage lace, and ribbon. I added some burlap and paper flowers and sewed on the letter stickers. This was for the October New Issue: You’re Sew Cute, You Keep Me In Stitches with May Arts Ribbon at Paper Issues. Here are a few detail shots!
I’ve also been helping re-do my teen’s bedroom a little bit. Natalie proudly shows off her “N” collection. Or as Macie calls it “her wall of domination!”
While shopping in Warrenton, I found a seller of a massive amount of vintage saris. Jackpot! I bought a bunch of them, cut them up, and sewed them into curtain panels. Here is one of the panels. Now I just need to hang them….will post another pic of them hanging if that curtain rod I ordered two weeks ago from Amazon ever comes in!
I also have the privilege of being Guest Designer for Hydrangea Hippo for this month. I created this cute little Halloween house canvas using items from the October kit.
Whew! That was a LOT of projects! As a side note, I’m working on my scrapbooking again. I have realized over the past few weeks how much I have missed memory keeping. Want to see what I’ve been up to on that front? Check out my somewhat revived scrapbooking blog :)
Have any special projects you’ve been working on? I’d love to see them! Feel free to leave a link in the comments section.
