The fog

The fog

It seems as if the fog ( me doing nothing) is starting to shift. The winter months as far as energy have turned into the fog as I call it. Shortly after thanksgiving our oldest daughter decided to move out and of course when your child leaves it's a emotional process. So that mixed in holiday preparations was. Little different this year. I really tried to just let things happen as far as not forcing plans or making a huge list of things to do... So now it being the early part of January having put all the Christmas decor away.....the rush of organization is kicking in, projects, ideas of all sorts are popping into my head. So today I'm hoping to start my daughters redo for her bedroom, painting, going through stuff and taking things to goodwill( purge and merge) she has had wood paneling on her walls since we bought the house 18 years ago and have painted it all sorts of pretty colors and it's going down,,,finally going down. Hopefully not a mess behind it. Looking at all the other walls and it being a old house with some plaster's all in fantastic shape so let's keep our fingers crossed.

Loving Fall!

I really love the look of old trucks and after seeing a cute pic this morning of an old truck with some pumpkins in the back, this is what sprung into my head for a cute wall hanging either inside of a wreath or a door hanger, or even smaller for a place setting that your guests can take home. 6x6 canvas, a few fall pics cut to size ( printed off computer) matte medium to adhere your pics, painted sides and added a bit of texture around edges with a script roller wheel. Then take a long piece of burlap cut it to wide ribbon size add other ribbons of color and knot it  and staple to back of canvas .

My Friend's Daughter is having a baby so after hearing that Owl's, Teal and Brown were the theme decided to  use some candle jars I had, and some little owls I've had in a drawer to good use, Spray painted the lids espresso brown, used a heavy duty glue to attach the owl's , then sprayed them too, they turned out really cute and I think she will love them. I wrapped them in cute vintage paper and put them in a wire basket with a handle so she can use the basket for extra, towels, or blankets.
