Left on the shelf- baby cradle

I liked this beautiful wicker rocking cradle at the thrift store. But it is not our time of life at the moment. At less than $20 I hope someone loved this wonderful deal.

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

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.

Lovely little tin, 99cents. One can never have too many tins, they hold buttons, beads and children treasures.

I keep finding them; colorful, bordered, never-used old timer cotton squares. I have quite a pile now and will be stringing them up for bunting soon. But I can’t decide whether to hang them diagonally, or a squares. what do you think? Here are two examples: Square-hung and diagonal hung.

Best find ever!

Here are some bits we have thrifted. Uniform pants, $2.

Keens, I snap them up when I see them. If we can’t use them I’ll pass them on. Such good versatility and quality.

A paper making kit. $2. A really fun school or busy activity.
