Burlap and Lace...Repurposed Wreath for Missy!
Surprise Housewarming Gift...
Burlap, Lace, and Old Silverware.
Coffee Filter Flowers.
Missy doesn't know she's getting this...unless she reads the blog...which I hope she does. There was a wreath she liked at Morgan's Emporium in Idaho Falls...but I thought I could make her one just using what I had on hand. I've been trying to do that more...see if I can do the project without heading to Hobby Lobby or Michaels. Missy recently sold her home and is renting until they either build or buy another home suitable for her large family...six daughters who all want their own space.
The silver knife, fork and spoon used to be a windchime on my front porch.
The burlap wreath was my Fourth of July Circus wreath.
The old lace is from Grandma Patta.
I am hoping this will go well with the old coat rack she just repurposed. Her dad is currently remodeling Grandpa Tad's old house and has rescued a few old doors for Missy and our niece Jenny to DIY. I've seen some wonderful hall tree ideas on Pinterest...I notice they've pinned a few! I hope George can take it to her when he drives up that way for a job they're doing nearby.
Coat rack was once the top of antique oak dresser mirror.
Great job, Missy!
The Last of the Halloween Decor...
I put some of my vintage Halloween cutouts on my office door.
Quick pennant garland from leftover fabric scraps.
My Favorite Tree...
This maple is a blaze of color.
It starts out gold...then orange...then red.
There are even burgandy leaves.
I also wanted to show you George's new pergola.
It still needs to be stained, but will look cute with a swing next spring.
I think I am done with Halloween crafting.
Time for Christmas!
Only 3 weeks until I start decorating...
