Going on

November 22, 2012 § 1 Comment

Hello welcome holiday. Here are some things in the works. Our hostess gift for Thanksgiving dinner.

Last week we stopped by the Denver art museum to squash pennies and there happened to be a holiday sale going on. I bought this guy. Two layers of vellum and paper stitched together for this amazing rhino print.

I’m fixing up this frame for the rhino. He will hang near this rhino!

Some new kitchen herbs.

These lovely red rosettes are growing in the back garden, even in winter.

I’m working on reusable gift wraps. It is my plan that fabric ties and festive ribbons will be sewn on these hemmed squares and that they will be used for years to come. Less waste and prettier too.

Pinterest project- hang it all

November 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

 

Things in my house always look best in repeat. Many frames, many jars, many ties.  A display of many similar items pulls things together and gives you big visual impact for your little objects. I love all the ceilings full of poufs or globes seen on pinterest. Have a collection of anything? Hang it from the ceiling. Instant art! I started with five objects. Several were thrifted and the big fish scale lamp I covered with dictionary pages over a year ago. This is our master bedroom. It is huge and empty. And I’ve come to realize that I’m going to need a lot more things to hang for this cluster to be filled out. But here is a start.

So much to do. So little time. Though with the homeschooling I am strangely more productive then when the kids were in school.

Birds for mobiles. I have a craft show in Nov.

Four baby chairs and 7 adult size to refinish.

This amazing pile of Afghani beaded discs. I can’t decide how to use them. The best wall garland ever? They smell like tea.

A cuckoo clock to gift, here is the primer stage.
